Welcome to another monthly wrap-up! I am shocked at how much I read in March, somehow I managed to get through 15 books! And some of these books were big. I read so many 5 star books this month, I don’t know how I’m going to pick a favourite!
My books of the month were An Ember in the Ashes, Chain of Iron and House of Salt and Sorrows.
The Once and Future Queen Books 2 and 3:
I loved the first book, but it did not come anywhere close to these two! I really felt like the world building and the characters were explored so much more in the last two books. I can imagine some people will struggle with the first book, but all I can say is read the second one and see if it changes your mind. I adore Gideon, who we are introduced to in the second book, and I think so many interesting characters appear once Cassandra, Devyn and Marcus have left Londinum.
The Stolen Kingdom:
This book blew me away. I was so excited to read it and did not disappoint! It was the second book I read in March but I haven’t posted my review yet cause I am in a blog tour for it later in April! But my review will be out soon and it is a positive one.
I loved the story, the magic system and the characters!!
The Lightning Thesaurus:
I was so disappointed by this book, I really struggled to get through it. If it wasn’t an ARC, I would have DNF’ed it. I thought the writing was poor and there were way too many big words used that genuinely didn’t make any sense!

The Crowns of Croswald:
This book was magical and I do have a review copy of the sequel that I will be reading soon! It was such a good coming-of-age story about Ivy and it reminded me a bit of Harry Potter, with its own unique twist.

I hadn’t read anything about werewolves for a long time until I read this book. I loved the characters and the romance between two opposing sides. The tension was great and I recommend this for fantasy lovers!

Seasons of the Storm:
This has been on my TBR for so long and it was worth the wait. I I loved Jack and Fleur and they were definitely star-crossed lovers! I had no idea there was a sequel, and I do think you could get away with reading this as a standalone, but nevertheless, I am excited for it!

I read so many positive reviews of this book and I had to grab a copy of NetGalley. I was not disappointed and loved the magic system. This is a book that I will definitely reread at some point!

Bridge to Terabithia:
I adored the film when I was younger, and have always wanted to read the book. It got chosen as my book club book this month so I got to experience the emotional pain in book form!

House of Salt and Sorrows:
Wow This book blew me away. It wasn’t quite what I expected but it was insanely good. I am posting my review tomorrow so you can check out my full thoughts. But this was a really well written, dark fairy tale retelling of the twelve dancing princes. I wasn’t expecting it to be as sad as it was!
The Last Hours Books 1 and 2:
I love these characters so much. Cordelia and James are endgame in my heart and I am now impatiently waiting for Chain of Thorns! I think these might be my favourite Shadowhunter books, purely because of the depth to the characters!
All I will say is I was extremely frustrated with the ending of Chain of Iron!
Like A Boss:
After the ending of Chain of Iron, I felt like I needed a rom-com to cheer me up! And this was so good! It was light hearted and I was sucked into the story from the get-go. I really loved the importance of family that was portrayed in this novel, as Quin is a single dad, and Nell has lots of supportive siblings.
I definitely recommend this book if you want a fun, romantic read!
An Ember in the Ashes and A Torch Against the Night:
I wish I’d read these sooner. I love the characters, Especially Elias and Laia, I ship them so hard haha! Hopefully, I will have finished the series soon cause I am dying to see what happens!
I never thought I’d be doing a wrap up for 15 books! Now my dissertation deadline is approaching, I doubt I’ll be able to read as much in April, but then again I said that at the beginning of March so who knows!
What have you been reading in March? Have you read any of the books I have?
