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 😀 ❤

  1. I’m really glad to hear that you’re enjoying the Narnia books! They are definitely one of my favourites and actually the series that got me into reading. 😀 I love the movie for Coraline as well, it’s sooo amazing – I definitely need to re-watch it some time in the future, it’s been waaay too long since I have last seen it.

    1. hahahha well some of these were short (about 200 pages) so could read them in less than a day, and the biggest one (880 pages) was so good I couldn’t put it down 😀 I also read when I maaay have needed to study 😂

  2. Nice, that’s a good handful of books you read!! (I look up to people like you; I’m a pretty slow reader haha) That’s good that you read Coraline! I read that a few years back, and the graphic novel last year (it’s really good!). I watched the movie when I was seven, and it horrified me (I used to get scared pretty easily). My little sister was looking for free movies on demand, and I don’t know, it must have been around Halloween or something, because Coraline was at the top. She assured me it wasn’t creepy when I came home, and she restarted the movie. I didn’t believe her, and it wasn’t until the mother started turning into this skeletal creature that I made her turn it off 😂😂. When you think about it it’s kind of a disturbing movie for a 5 and a 7 year old lol.

    1. Oh thanks haha but well it depends, this month I won’t get as much read seeing as I have so much to do 😦 But yeah the movie was sooo creepy, it didn’t scare me as much (though it did creep me out) but my mom forbids us from turning on the movie when she’s around 😂
