All right! Been quite a successful read this month. You might notice that like 8 of these books are middle-grade (+) fiction, and there’s actually a very good reason for that. This month I had my exams for two courses so I was very very anxious about them (and my future), plus the fact that I turned 19 this month as well, made me hide behind those books in an attempt to hide from responsibility.
But due to exams and so I did not have much time on writing reviews, which I hope to improve next month. I actually wrote a literary analysis on The Picture Of Dorian Gray which I might post here soon 🙂
The Best Book Of The Month were no doubt Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb (read the review here.), and I’m gonna buy the sequel tomorrow (I hope) so am really looking forward to that!
But I really loved the Narnia books (haven’t read them before!), I listened to the audio books which I highly recommend. I love the movie Coraline so really enjoyed the book, but this was actually one of those few cases where the movie is better than the book (though the book was not bad). The other Gaiman book I read, The Graveyard Book, was just as weird and unique as you could expect from him. A really great read!
I also started reading His Dark Materials – series by Philip Pullman which I’ve enjoyed, and am currently on the last book. Sadly I got a bit stuck due to the exams was then, but hope to finish it by the beginning of April! I will do a full review of the series as a whole then I plan 🙂
Right, if you have any questions about any of the books or so, don’t hesitate to ask in the comments! Or if you just want to hype about one of the books 😀 ❤
