March Book List

Sunday, 1 March 2015

I finished off February on a book high. I don’t care how geeky that makes me sound. I read a book I really enjoyed and even gave it 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads. So how did I do this month? I finished all the books in my list. I started off with False Memory by Dean Koontz and oh man this was a really long book. It was interesting because the book only spans out to about 3+ days or something like that, so I’m not sure why it’s so long. It actually enjoyed the book even if the ending was a bit meh. The next book I read was Season to Taste or How to Eat Your Husband and it’s not often I feel this way, but I really felt like this book as a complete was of my time. There was just no story, it was incredibly dull throughout and so I kept thinking that there would be a plot twist to make up for it, but that never happened. It really was just a book talking about a woman eating her husband. I won’t bash it anymore because I appreciate the effort that goes into writing a book, but this was not a book I enjoyed. 

Next I read The Death of Bees and guys I just loved this book. It was not what I expected at all and I’m not even sure how I came about putting this gem in my Amazon basket, but I’m glad I did. I don’t know what else to say, apart from this book is what makes me love reading. It isn’t even a book I can relate to, it’s two sisters in Scotland who bury their parents in the back garden and carry on living. It’s just interesting to see their lives unravel and I just loved the writing in this.



So this month I am still pick out of my Amazon ‘save for later’ bag. I’m going with four books this month. Although I managed to do three this month just reading to and from work, I want to have one evening dedicated to reading a week, so hopefully I’ll get through my books a lot faster. 

Sula by Toni Morrison – I’m not sure how I came across this book, but I remember reading loads about the author and her achievements. I think I picked this book because it sounded the most interesting, to me, out of all her books. I have gone to purchase this book so many times and then decided against it, but I finally decide enough was enough and that in March I would finally read it. 

Where The Truth Lies by Jessica Warman – I can’t remember why I wanted to read this book and reading the blurb doesn’t jog my memory either. It sort of sounds like a light read, with a bit of a twist so hopefully it will be something I enjoy.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver – I’m a lover of young adult books, even if they can be repetitive and unrealistic. I read Thirteen Reasons Why, a book about a girl who commits suicide, when I was in my teens and have always been strangely drawn to books like this ever since. Before I Fall is meant to be similar to that and just has such good reviews everywhere (4+) so I thought I'd better read it already!

Incendiary by Chris Cleave – This is a book in the bookshelves at work. I have the read The Other Hand/ Little Bee by Chris Cleave and thoroughly enjoyed that, so I thought I would read this seeing as I had the chance. The blurb doesn’t give much away, but then the blurbs on his books never do, so it makes it all the more exciting to read!

So that’s my list for this month, I’m really excited to read Incendiary and see what happens. I don’t really feel much about the others, I’m just hoping that one of them is good! 

What book are you reading at the moment?
