Good twilight, my favorite book nerds! I hope you’ve had a good March!
The snow has finally let up. St. Patrick’s Day was very green and very lucky. Well, not super lucky, but it wasn’t a bad day. Easter is coming up soon. Hope everyone has a lovely holiday and that it is very sunny. May the Easter Bunny bless you with peeps!
Unless, you hate peeps, then I hope you are blessed with chocolate eggs. ME? I’m a BIIIIIG fan of the sour watermelon peeps. Sooooo I’m hoping for those.
Also, A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2 premiered yesterday! WHO ELSE IS EXCITED ABOUT THAT AND ALREADY BINGED IT ALL NIGHT!?
*hand shoots up in the air.*
I’m not giving any spoilers away, but this is the Easter Egg hunt of the year! Definitely go watch. Such a great series, inspired by fantastic books. (I need to reread them). Treachery. Tragedy. And tr–another tr-word.
And just remember….the world is quiet here. #VFD
So, it’s evening. You’ve had a long day and want to kick back. Here, I have a rundown of everything I’ve read this month. If there’s a review you’ve missed you’ll find it here. Maybe you’ll find the next book you want to read.
Here we go:
There’s Someone Inside Your House – here
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Blood, Gore, all in a small town. YESSSSSSS!!!!! And it was EPIC. This book is intense and really makes a person wonder. Anybody could go psycho and it could be in any small town. Even yours. A good read if you want some goosies with a side of sweet high school love.
Shadow Falls: Reborn – here
Author: C.C. Hunter
Bring on the vampires…and private school. I never thought those two things would ever combine together, but here they are in one series. There are vampires, fae, shapeshifters and chameleons. All kinds of drama for the heart that craves angst. Resident badass with fangs, Della will certainly keep you rolling as she’s determined to solve a murder that happened on the grounds of Shadow Falls.
Crime and Punishment – here
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
There’s crime. There’s punishment. There’s a man slowly driving himself in-freaking-sane. Guilt will eat you up and here’s a six part story to show just how much it’ll haunt you.
Love + Gelato – here
Author: Jennifer Evans Welsh
Discovery, first loves, and most importantly, gelato. Go to Italy for the art and adventure. Stay for the love and gelato. Snd let me tell you, I LOVED this book. It was so sweet and tender. Definitely on my reread list.
Wicked Game – here
Author: Jeri Smith-Ready
Wild. Sexy. Annnnnd, vampires. These ones don’t sparkle. They’re feisty and love blood. They run a radio station to keep with the times. Ciara works as a marketing rep to keep them in business. And of course, she can’t help but be attracted to one of them. Fun and wicked, this was a fun read.
Bad to the Bone – here
Author: Jeri Smith-Ready
More bloody fun. A cult. A vampire dog. Sure, let’s get more interesting. Ciara faces new and old problems, including taking the next step with her vamper boy-toy. This book will whip you around just the way you like it. It’s okay to have a little fun sometimes. Read a pointless book.
The Wind in the Willows – here
Author: Kenneth Grahame
Whimsical and just beautiful. This book is one everyone should read. It’s short and filled with adventure and a troublesome toad that has an addiction to driving motor cars. Iff you love Winnie the Pooh then read this.
Bound to You – here
Author: Christopher Pike
A two for one deal here. Two stories in one book. Spellbound and See You Later are two stories that will envelope you in magic, love and certain danger. One thing I gathered from this book, you never really know a person.
The Light of Ives: Memories Remain – here
Author: Kristen Traganas
Imaginative and intriguing. This aches for freedom away from home. With heartache and tragedy there is healing. There’s a lot of emotions rolling in this fantasy YA.
It was a full month. Some classics. A couple YA romances. Mass market fun.
My favorite book this month: There’s Someone Inside Your House.
I’m such a fan of horror…if it’s done right. And this was done SOOOO right. I’m a fan of Wes Craven’s Scream series (the movies not the TV, though the show is decent). Slashers can make you not only jumpy, but also wary. Such an eerie feeling to have, and invigorating. , leaving you on the edge of your seat. I loved it! Now, I have my mom reading it.
My least favorite book this month: Bound to You
I just couldn’t get into this book for life of me. The plot were very interesting, but it was how jumpy it felt. There was no magic or wonder in it. Everything felt so planned out and expected, leaving me deflated. Never fun.
So, March is over and April is coming up next. A LOT more books to come and I believe V.C. Andrews is among them.
More to come soon…
