What I Read in March!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is what-i-read-this-month.jpg

March has been an odd month. I started the month out in a read big reading slump and ended the month not wanting to stop reading. Throughout March I have read a total of 10 books which I am quite proud of.

So, I am back with another what I’ve read this month post! I have some thoughts I wanted to share on the book I read throughout March. This year I have added a section to these posts about my reading statistics. Here is a post that is full of mini review for the books I read in March!

The World Between Us by Sarah Ann Juckes

Alice may be bed-bound, but that doesn’t stop her from going outside. Every day, she logs into Stream Cast and experiences the outside world by watching other people live wonderful and exciting lives.

But when one of the streamers is killed in a cycle accident, Alice is introduced to a new streamer.

Rowan sees beauty in the everyday and encourages her to stop watching, and start taking control. But Rowan too has a secret he’s trying to hide from Alice – and from himself.

This book is extraordinary. I managed to read it in a couple of days and it blew me away. If you have not read anything by Sarah Ann Juckes before you are really missing out. Her books are hidden gems that will stick in your head for a long while after you have read this. This one has chronic illness representation and a beautiful storyline. I wrote a full review of this one, which you can find here.

★★★★


The Infinity Files by S.M. Wilson

Get in. Get Out. ⁠⠀
Keep to the task.⁠⠀
Leave no trace. ⁠⠀

⁠⠀
Ash Yang dreamed of being a starfighter pilot. But when she crashes out of her final test – literally – she somehow lands the most powerful job in the universe. As Guardian of the Infinity Files she must secretly planet-hop through the galaxies, stealing or returning treasures that have the power to stop wars…or start them.⁠⠀

A book that dragged me in just with the premise of a library at the end of the world and then didn’t let me go. This book is excellent and is such a whirlwind of a book journey. If you are looking for a sci-fi book with action, adventure, mysteries and androids then this is the book for you. I throughly enjoyed this one and cannot wait for the next in the series. I wrote a full review of this book, which you can find here.

The Boyband Murder Mystery by Ava Eldred

Harri and her best friends worship Half Light – an internationally famous boyband. When frontman Frankie is arrested on suspicion of murdering his oldest friend Evan, Harri feels like her world’s about to fall apart. But quickly she realises that she – and all the other Half Light superfans out there – know and understand much more about these boys than any detective ever could.

Now she’s rallying a fangirl army to prove Frankie’s innocence – and to show the world that you should never underestimate a teenage girl with a passion…

This is a book that was made for fans of murder mysteries, boybands and fandoms. I flew through this book and throughly enjoyed its contents. It shows the power that fandoms have, the friendships they can create and the joys and downfalls of being a part of fandoms. It was a good read. I have written a full review of this book which you can find here.

★★★★


Yolk by Mary H.K Choi

Jayne Baek is barely getting by. She shuffles through fashion school, saddled with a deadbeat boyfriend, clout-chasing friends, and a wretched eating disorder that she’s not fully ready to confront. But that’s New York City, right? At least she isn’t in Texas anymore, and is finally living in a city that feels right for her.

On the other hand, her sister June is dazzlingly rich with a high-flying finance job and a massive apartment. Unlike Jayne, June has never struggled a day in her life. Until she’s diagnosed with uterine cancer.

Suddenly, these estranged sisters who have nothing in common are living together. Because sisterly obligations are kind of important when one of you is dying.

Mary H.K Choi is one of those authors that I have heard so much about but had very little experience with, until now! I have read a couple of her books but this one is easily my favourite. This story is heart-breaking, it is tough and it is incredible hard-hitting but it is such an incredible book that I’m sure I will remember for a long time to come. I have written a full review of this which you can find here.

The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe

Nora O’Malley’s been a lot of girls. As the daughter of a con-artist who targets criminal men, she grew up as her mother’s protégé. But when mom fell for the mark instead of conning him, Nora pulled the ultimate con: escape.

For five years Nora’s been playing at normal. But she needs to dust off the skills she ditched because she has three problems:

#1: Her ex walked in on her with her girlfriend. Even though they’re all friends, Wes didn’t know about her and Iris.

#2: The morning after Wes finds them kissing, they all have to meet to deposit the fundraiser money they raised at the bank. It’s a nightmare that goes from awkward to deadly, because:

#3: Right after they enter bank, two guys start robbing it.

The bank robbers may be trouble, but Nora’s something else entirely. They have no idea who they’re really holding hostage…

I finished this just a few days ago and I loved it! This is something I picked up purely based on seeing a load of hype reviews across a number of social media platforms.If you have yet to read this book then you need to get on it immediately because you really won’t regret it. Also, keep your eyes out for this book being adapted into a film very soon!

★★★★
