Monthly Wrap Up | March 2016

I only managed to read one book between the months of January and February, something I shared in my February Wrap Up. The reading slump continued long through March, and then with the arrival of the Easter weekend I dusted off two whole books! This might not seem like much, but these two books saw the end of an over two month reading slump! I’m now on my Easter break and you know I’ll be picking up book after book!

I don’t have reviews up for either of these two books yet, but expect reviews on them both in April!

What I Read

In Real Life by Jessica Love
The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

Currently Reading

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
As I mentioned in last month’s Wrap Up, I started reading Pride and Prejudice as a means to end the slump, while that was working, my life got really busy and stressful, so I had to put P+P down. Now that I am back reading again I will definitely be finishing of the final half of Pride and Prejudice, once I finish re-reading Fangirl! And can I just say, I’m loving Fangirl even more the second time round! I feel that I relate to Cath incredibly, with her shyness, romantic boy life, and love of reading. As I’m reading I keep pausing and thinking “Hey, that’s totally me!” 
What books have you read during March? Let me know in the comments!

That’s A Wrap | 2014

I can’t believe 2014 is over! It barely seems like yesterday I was preparing for New Years Eve last year. 2014 has been a great year, I finished my first year at uni and started this blog. It’s been up and running for four months now and I’m really happy and proud of it. 
I’ve done a lot of reading this year, I beat my first ever Goodreads reading challenge, which I’m pretty happy about. It’s definitely something I’ll be doing again in 2015, upping the ante and setting myself the challenge of 150 books this time. It would be an incredibly long post if I were to feature every book that I’ve read this year, so I’ll be featuring my 2014 favourites. 
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

I made no secret of how much I loved this book in this post and this post, it very quickly became one of my favourite books of the summer, if not year. I’ve recommended it to so many people, I really can’t contain my love for The Winner’s Curse! I am so ridiculously excited for the sequel, I can’t wait for more Arin and Kestrel.

The One by Kiera Kass

In my opinion this was the perfect end to the trilogy, I got the ending I wanted, even if it took a while to get there.

Taking Names by Michelle Onuorah

I loved Type N, I thought it was really clever and interesting, and lucky for me Taking Names didn’t disappoint. I would definitely recommend this series.

More Than This by Patrick Ness

Patrick Ness blew me away with More Than This, I sat in awe for a very long time after reading it. It takes YA dystopia to a whole new level. I read this book before I started blogging, so I never reviewed it, but I urge you to read it!

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Do I really need to say anything for this one? The Maze Runner is incredible and I can’t wait to start reading the second soon.

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

This book drained me emotionally. This was my first experience of Nicholas Sparks, but it won’t be my last.

The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting by Holly Bourne

This book started off my summer holiday, it was fun and hilarious. Not only did I love the book I also discovered an author that I really like!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

My sister and I actually fangirled over this book, and now we both can’t wait to read Rainbow Rowell because if she can create such incredible characters in this book, then surely the rest will be no exception.

They’re the books that I loved in 2014, there’s probably more that I can’t remember, but these are the books that stood out to me. What books made your 2014? Let me know what your 2014 favourites are! If you’re new to the blog then I’d love you to follow me on Bloglovin’!
