Another month that just flew by! March has a pretty decent month; I finished 6 books and all but one I really liked! Come back tomorrow to find out what’s on my April TBR!
Let’s Just Jump Into It!
Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James
Wow. This was an intense book. At first, it was very confusing, but I eventually got a hang of the writing. That helped my enjoyment of the book greatly. There was so much going on that was intense and insane that I had to put it down for a second sometimes. The beautiful pros were poetic and lovely. Also, some great conversations around rape, consent, power, and women. Goodreads
The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill
What an adorable story, and same goes for the artwork. I wish it was longer because just as I was starting to really grow attached to the characters, it ended. It was interesting to see anxiety and memory loss depicted through children and in a graphic novel. Highly Recommend! Goodreads
A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare
I feel like I’m getting better at reading and understanding Shakespeare more! I didn’t realize how short this play is so I just finished it in one day and majority of it I finished it at my tattoo appointment. It was a nice break reading the graphic novel and the play between the huge fantasies I read this month. Despite the fact I was getting tattooed while reading it I laughed out loud a few times.

A Court Of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I think it’s time I give up trying to like Maas’ books. They’re not for me, and that’s okay. My biggest problems with her books, including this one are no or little diversity, toxic relationships, and unhealthy perspectives on mental health. I really hate this concept in relationships of ownership “You’re mine” type thing. I’m my own person and no guy is going to tell me what to do. I would not put up with Rhys or Tamlin at all. Only reasons this isn’t a 1 star was because I actually enjoyed trashing it while I read it, the action was decently written, and there was one good twist. Goodreads
They Called My Wyatt by Natasha Tynes
I was sent this to review and I actually already posted my review last week! They Called Me Wyatt by Natasha Tynes: Book Review I don’t usually read mystery thriller, but I enjoyed reading something out of my usual genres. There was some great representation for people of colour and mental health. I thought the concept very much pulled me in and kept me hooked to the end. Goodreads
One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid
You bet I read another Taylor Jenkins Reid book! I have two more books and one novella left of hers to read. Once again I felt like she writes just for me. I cried, but of course I did. Reid did amazing writing about love, grief and moving on. The family was great too, I loved seeing how they changed throughout the book. My only question is why had the traditional structure of a relationship was assumed? I think it’s okay to love more than one person along as everyone is okay with the relationship dynamic, you know? I love the book and the ending, just a question! Goodreads
As always, thanks for reading!
