March has been the best reading month for me so far this year. I read nine books and also completed my Goodreads challenge of reading at least 20 books in 2020. After a few months of being in a reading slump, I think I am finally back to my old self. I have so many books I want to get to over the next few months and I absolutely cannot wait.

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City #1) by Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book was one of my most anticipated releases of the year. I absolutely could not wait to get my hands on it, and devoured this 800 pages book in less than a week. From the beginning, I loved the characters. Sarah J. Maas has a way of capturing my attention after just one chapter.

To be honest, I quite struggled with getting into it. There was a lot of information given because the reader had to learn about everything going on in this world; from the history and politics to the laws. Another thing worth mentioning is that this book is scary and so, so dark. I got jumpy quite a few times to the point where I had to put the book down and look around the room. This book taught me a lot. The friendships and moral of the story broke my heart. I think this is a really great book and it had me in tears, as well as fits of laughter, quite a few times.

I will be writing a full review in the coming month if you were interested in reading my full thoughts on this book.

After two years, I decided to reread the series to get back into this world. I understand that these books might not be enjoyed by a lot of people but to me, it is so magical and enjoyable. I love the characters, world and plot. Sure, there are faults here and there but they are not enough to make me feel otherwise. The world is just as magical as when I first read about it in April 2018. I had such a fun time rereading them and was shocked to find how much I had forgotten over the years. I as almost as surprised by the plot twists as I was back then.

A full review for the series will come soon!

Eat, and Love Yourself by Sweeney Boo

I requested this graphic novel from NetGalley and read it this weekend. When I first read the synopsis, I knew I would love it. This book deals with such an important topic and I saw things a bit differently after finishing it. The drawings and art were absolutely amazing and so cute. I could not get enough.

A full review will come in the following month.

I was just as excited for this one as I was for Eat, and Love Yourself when I requested it on NetGalley. After reading it this weekend, I was quite disappointed. The drawings and art were very well done but the story felt all over the place and to be honest, very few things made sense. The art made up for where the dialog between the characters failed, I guess.

I will be writing a review to let you know my full thoughts before it releases next month.

When I first watched the film back in January, I knew I would love the book just as much. The characters have a special place in my heart and I had such a fun time seeing the movie play off in my mind as I read the book page by page.

Full review to come!

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Truly, I can see why this book is loved by so, so many people. From the first page I was absolutely captivated. The author wrote the story in such a magical and poetic way. I actually have to still finish a few more chapters of the book when this blog post is up, so I will be writing a full review in April. 

I guess that is it for March! Yet another chapter of the year has passed. I am so excited for April. Despite all that is happening, books help me escape in a way nothing else can. This month I will be participating in the O.W.L.’s Magical Readathon and I could not be more ecstatic.

If you would like to see what my thoughts are on the books I will be reading as I read them, be sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram. As always, I will be posting full reviews and a wrap up at the end of the month.

Keep on reading and never stop telling stories.
