Hello lovely readers! As we come together for a March Wrap-Up, can I just say that March was a flop-a-doo of a reading month for me. I had such great plans! But, alas, they all fell into the trash and I was left alone with a grand total of 5 books! So, without further ado, let's get into my Wrap-Up!
Books Read: Last Year's Mistake, by Gina Ciocca; Red Queen, by Victoria Aveyard; Glass Sword, by Victoria Aveyard; King's Cage, by Victoria Aveyard; Saving Red, by Sonya Sones.
Books I Started But Didn't Finish: Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen; The Unexpected Everything, by Morgan Matson
What I'm Currently Reading: Lady Midnight, by Cassandra Clare
Last Year's Mistake Thoughts:
This book was a satisfying contemporary. However, I did have some problems with the story. One, I thought that the main character was pretty clueless at times. I know romance contemporaries are meant to be cute and a bit cheesy, there is a line that I believe should be drawn. Sometimes in our favorite contemporaries, the character doesn't realize the love interest likes them. This was one of those cases. Another problem I had was that some events were just too perfectly wrapped up, or happened so conveniently that I just couldn't help but notice it. Other than that, the book was a good one and I was pleased with it. Overall, a 3/5 star rating!
Red Queen, Glass Sword, and King's Cage Thoughts (wrapping up as a series total):
This series is not the most orginial series in the universe, but it is simple to understand and very solid! I honestly give it an A+ for enjoyment and it deals with ALL OF THE THINGS!! There's love, betrayal, loss, pain, confusion, everything! In each book, we see Mare, our main character, grow as a person. She suffers, she prevails, and it's wonderful, seeing this character grow. In the 3rd book, King's Cage, I had trouble getting through it (It took me around 2 weeks, which slowed me down), and I believe it was becasue I chose to read the whole series in order and I was just tiring of the world, which happens. Overall though, I love this series! RQ: 5/5 stars GS: 5/5 stars KC: 4/5 stars
Saving Red Thoughts:
This book was amazing. I recieved an ARC of this book in a giveaway offered by EpicReads on their website, before the book was released. I hadn't gotten to it until now. And, I'm going to be honest, it was awesome. In the novel, we are exposed to a homeless girl, who is dealing with problems that are discovered in the book. Basically, our main character Molly strives to get Red home to her family by Christmas, but is having trouble due to challenges that I won't talk about. Molly is slightly assisted by Cristo, a boy she meets at a fair. This book was so eye-opening. It is written in verse, which makes the story all the more beautiful, and I really enjoyed this book. 4/5 stars overall.
