March was not the best reading month for me. I didn’t manage to finish all the rereads on my TBR and I only finished one book during Rereadathon. As far as ratings go, it was a great reading month. But I suppose that’s to be expected since I mostly reread books I’ve loved before.
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick // 5 stars // This reread was so good. It was certainly a sadder book than I remembered, but it was a very relevant and poignant read. Check out my full review here.
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia // 5 stars // Once again, this was a great rereading experience! I think I probably enjoyed Eliza a little less this time but it was still very enjoyable. My favorite thing about this book might just be the features from Monstrous Sea, the fictional webcomic that exists in this universe.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins // 5 stars // I love this series with my whole heart. Suzanne Collins really did that. This book is completely worth the hype with great action, characters, and plot.
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins // 5 stars // There’s no second book syndrome here. When I was younger I hailed this as my favorite book in the series. I’m not sure if that’s true now, but I do still love this story. My main complaint with Catching Fire is that the pacing of this novel felt a little off.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins // 4 stars // I think this book is far better than most people make it out to be. I agree that there are some issues with this book. It moves a lot slower than the other books. Katniss’s character is certainly different throughout this conclusion, and the characters overall deserved much better than the events in Mockingjay. Overall, I think this is still a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.
If My Body Could Speak by Blythe Baird // 4 stars // I have loved Blythe Baird for years, so I jumped at the chance to pick up her new poetry anthology. It was a pretty satisfying collection, with many strong and quotable lines. However, I do think that I enjoy her poetry as spoken word.
On the Blog
I had a fun month blogging during March! Between creating my own original book tag and being nominated for my first blogger award, I’d say March was a success.
I’ve been on spring break for half of the month. It was really nice to take a little break from the stress of schoolwork. That being said, I was a little disappointed that I didn’t read more during the month.
My senior year of high school is so close to coming to an end! I’m honestly pretty nervous about graduating. But at least I have some plans lined up for the next step in my education. The next couple of months will likely be a whirlwind of senior events at my school.
That’s my March in a nutshell! How was your reading month in March? Let me know any of your opinions in these books or the ones you completed in March!
Until next time!
