After a fairly disappointing reading month in February, things picked up again in March.
I finally got around to reading Wrath by John Gwynne, the final book in the Faithful and the Fallen series – which was on my list of 8 books that I’m definitely going to read in 2018. So far this is the only book I’ve read from this list – so I’m not doing well! I’m going to aim to get through a couple more this month though.
Wrath was actually a great read and such a satisfying end to an epic series. If you like fantasy, I’d definitely recommend giving these books a try if you haven’t already!
Another book I really loved this month was Ready Player One. I’ve had this on my shelf for about a year, and I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to get to it. I devoured it in just one evening – it was action packed and I couldn’t put it down! I’m looking forward to seeing the film adaptation of this to see if they did it justice. If anyone has seen it already – let me know what you think!
I was fairly disappointed with one read this month though. I’ve been reading DS Aector McAvoy series by David Mark – a crime/thriller series that I raved about a couple of months ago. It took me over a month to get through the seventh book in the series, and I really struggled to get along with the story. Usually I race through this type of book, but I found this one quite confusing and hard to follow. I’ve been finding this with a few book series recently, which have seemed to interest me less and less with each book, and it got me thinking about what writers need to do to keep a series fresh and interesting. Maybe one for a longer post another time!
One thing I’m still way behind on blog-wise at the moment is reviewing books, especially ARCs, so I need to try and pick this up in April!

Honestly, February was rough for me too, and I’ve noticed some other people saying the same thing. Coincidentally, February is usually the month with the lowest number of book sales every year. An interesting connection, perhaps?
Maybe there’s just something about February?! I’m blaming it on the fact that it was a shorter month!
i’m so glad you liked ready player one!! so good!
Glad you had a good reading month! I like crime/thriller books as well but I’ve never heard of David Mark.
I’m glad things picked up for you again in March! It’s a pretty impressive amount of books, especially since Dragonfly in Amber is so huge too!
