March Wrap Up: A Month in Books!

Well I must have turned into some crazy reading machine this month as I managed to finish...19 books. To be honest, 7 of those were graphic novels and 3 were Roald Dahl books but I still managed to get through alot which I'm really really happy with. So here we go! Seems so long ago now since I finished Grim. I really enjoyed some of the strange and fascinating stories in this collection. Esio Trot, The Magic Finger and The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me all took me back to my childhood, and was the perfect light and fun reads that I needed. Plus it helped me get ahead in my reading challenge (so perhaps I cheated a little :P). The Winner's Curse was a wonderful new fantasy story and I really did enjoy it. The three Wonder Woman graphic novels were so much fun and she's quickly become one of my favourite super heroes. I've really been enjoying reading graphic novels lately; I love how the illustrations add that little bit extra to the story. Definitely going to get some more to devour! 

Shadow and Bone and Siege and Storm were amazing. I really really enjoyed these and have already pre-ordered Ruin and Rising. The Assassin's Blade was just amazing. Brilliant novellas. Falling Kingdoms was another great fantasy series and I look forward to reading the rest of the series. I picked up Peter Pan as I wanted to have a re-cap of the story before reading Tiger Lily. Loved the re-telling and I thought Peter Pan was okay. Not great but I did enjoy it a little. Anna and the French Kiss completely surprised me. It was such a cute romance story that was really witty and relatable. The Batman New 52 volumes were sooo good and so creepy! And finally the Game of Thrones graphic novels; I knew the story but I loved seeing it through this new medium. Loved the artwork and loved the story all over again.

  1. Wow you read a lot! Good job! :D
    I was thinking about reading GoT graphics, but I am not sure...
    Happy reading!

  2. Great list and wonderful job reading so much!! I really loved Anna, too! I have Tiger Lily on my TBR list and really hope I'm able to get to it soon! :) Here's to hoping April brings on as many great books for you!

  3. Wow, lots of books this month! Congrats on reading so much :D. I only managed to read five books and two graphic novels this month, but there's always next month.
    I was so close to buying Grim last time I went to a bookstore. It looked so cool, but I only had so much money and lots of sequels to series I love just came out. So, I didn't get it. Now I regret that decision.
    Happy April Reading :D

  4. Ooh! So many good books! You don't know how much I'm raving over here@ I just can't! Anna and the French Kiss. I just can't get over this book. SO cute. Etienne St. Clair. How do we find someone so perfect? And the Shadow and Bone series. REALLY good. THE WINNER'S CURSE tho. I just read it this month too. Since it came out in this month. LOL. But I really loved The Winner's Curse. What a plot twist.

    Well, you had lots of reading this month I hope. Read more great books in April!
