March just flew by. I am beginning to sound like a broken record with how quickly I feel 2019 is passing us by. It was yet again another busy month for me and with the anticipation of the O.W.Ls in April, I took a more relaxed approach to my reading in March. I did participate in Re-readathon which I always enjoy. I otherwise just took it easy.

I also have been slowly working my way through and savouring every second of The Priory of the Orange Tree. I am loving it, I am not going to rush through just to finish it. I have not put it on my O.W.Ls TBR but I will be continuing to read a few pages till I am finished.
It’s been a Fantasy filled month, with almost three quarters of the books read being within the Fantasy genre in some way. I have placed one book as a Mystery but only because I don’t have heist as a category.
I am pleased I managed to hit the 50/50 split between adult and YA fiction. Overall I have managed to maintain this balance throughout the year so far and I hope I can continue to do that over the rest of the year.
A real mixed media month reading from a little bit of everything, from ARCs to paperbacks.

WHAT I READ FROM MY TBR –
The Truth about Keeping Secrets
This was a great debut YA thriller that dealt with grief in a way that was so honest and raw. I really enjoyed most of this apart from wanting more from the ending so it was a solid 4 stars. Read my full review here.
Sebastian de Castell
Continuing with my Count down to Queenslayer with the second book in the Spellslinger series, I thought that I originally didn’t really favour this book as highly as the others in the series. I completely forgot how funny this book was and how much we learn about Kellen, Ferius and Reichis. I have a full spoiler filled thoughts while re-reading for this book.
The Night Circus
This is one of my favourite books of all time. Every time I read it I get more and more out of it. I feel it is just beautifully written and I am soo excited for her next book which should release this year!
And Then There were None
And then there were none was the 2nd Agatha Christie I ever read and it was the book that truly hooked me to writing. I still found it an impactful and exciting tale even in a re-read. She really does deserve her crown as the queen of crime.
Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less
Oh boy I had completely forgot everything about this book. When re-reading it I was just completely swept away and I adored it. It’s such a fun ride – you can find my full review here.
The Dresden Files #1
I tried I really did but this really wasn’t my cup of tea. I just found it such a grind to get through. A book which only describes the women within its pages by their cup size is not a book for me.
Siege and Storm
This was an awesome second book. It has completely sold me on this series. I just seemed to speed through it. I will definitely be diving into the next one during my O.W.Ls.
I finally finished a series. I binged this series! It was so good. I got so invested in the characters and world. This really was a fitting conclusion. I will be writing up a review soon.
