Life update & March Recent Reads

Hello everyone!! I hope you have all been staying safe, reading as many books as possible and binging booktube. This year although it’s only April has been a roller coaster. Since I started my new job in September of 2020, I have been super busy pretty much since. I was exhausted after work, with all the overtime I was working I just didn’t have the motivation to create blog posts. Coming into February 2021 I was promoted, now I’m settled into my new position. I really missed creating blog posts, and of course I’ve still been reading. I would love to get back to creating posts for you all so you know what I’m reading and can keep up with me! I will be posting more so be on the lookout! That’s my life update for you all, now we’ll get on to the books. I didn’t pick up a book till March so that’s where we’ll start.📚

My first read of the year was Blood and Honey a YA fantasy romance by Shelby Mahurin. I would say this was not what I thought it was going to be. I definitely enjoyed the first book a lot more, I felt like not much really happened in the second book. The characters keep me going, I love the banter and relationships. I’m excited for Gods & Monsters to come out to continue the series. I rated this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
My second pick up of the year was Black Sun, this was my first novel by Rebecca Roanhorse. This book was a fantasy novel. All I have to say is WOW, the plot, characters, world building everything in this book blew me away. I read this book via audio, I felt it was the best way to process since some of the names and things were complicated too pronounce. The way this book started had me like WHAATTT. I was blown away by this work, and can’t wait to read more. I’m interested in picking up Trail of Lightning just because of how much I loved Black Sun. As I was reading Black Sun it somewhat reminded me of The First Season. I rated this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
I randomly picked up Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky, this book was extremely long for no reason I felt like. This book was an adult psychological thriller and suspense novel. The premise was interesting and the characters were okay, but I only finished this book because I didn’t want to just put it down. I should have DNF’d but I’m still getting comfortable DNFing books. The chapters seemed extremely long and it just got boring. This story follows a young boy that hears a voice talking to him in his head. That he believes is some imaginary best friend. The demon tells him he has to build a treehouse or something bad is going to happen to his family. I would not pick this book up again. I rated it ⭐️⭐️⭐️.
The last book I picked up in March was The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton. This was an adult historical fiction mystery thriller. I somewhat enjoyed this book, and I lost interest in some places. The pacing wasn’t the best it was kind of slow, or maybe it wasn’t just very interesting to me. I enjoy historical fiction and mysteries but the story just seemed to fall short for me. The banter and characters were okay but not memorable. I rated this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️.

That is all the books I read in the month of March. I hope you enjoyed my little life update and the books I read. Stay tuned for more upcoming posts. Keep reading and dreaming 📚🦋🌸

  1. I’ve only read Black Sun out of these and unfortunately didn’t enjoy it, probably because my attention span during the audiobook wasn’t good. But glad to hear that you loved it!

    1. I definitely think that book won’t be for everyone just because of the writing. The writing is very unique. I myself had to listen to certain parts multiple times to understand. I can definitely understand you not enjoying it, I hope you’ve read something great this year!
