March Wrap Up + Stats

I’m happy to report that March was a good month for me in regards to actually reading what is on my shelves. I’m sure a large part of that was the Backlist Readathon that I participated in. I did only manage to read four books that were on my February TBR but I’m giving myself a pass since last month was a huge transition for all of us. I also dropped the ball in reviewing the books that I read which I’m more disappointed about since I have been doing pretty well at keeping up. Oh well, April is a new month and I aim to review every book that I read this month.

This is so fun and cute and I was swooning over the love story. Then we got to a completely out of left field rape scene that was basically brushed over and I am so mad the author did that. I’m still undecided if I will finish with the series or not.

I was so in love with the first part of this book and then it took a turn for the worst. It is advertised as a documentary type book which is a lie since that is only a part of the first maybe 50 pages. Then the story tried to lecture the reader about race, racism and inequality from the perspective of the POC characters and it just came across as gross to me.

I read this book in high school and yet I forgot pretty much everything about this story in the intervening 15 or so years. I absolutely fell in love with this book. The writing was so beautiful, the stories were so compelling and the characters and settings all felt so real to me. I also really love the way this book is formatted and jumps between different characters stories. I already plan on rereading this (probably next year) and reading each person stories in whole before moving onto the next person.

Aren’t the covers of these books so gorgeous?! I love them all so much and they fit the books so well. Unfortunately this is my least favorite of the Hades Hangmen series (not including the novellas) and I don’t think it brought a lot to the overall story. I was still happy to be back in this world and with these characters so I still really enjoyed it.

I had this book on my Most Anticipated 2020 list and I’m so bummed that I found it to be just ok. I had a hard time connecting with the narrator because he was a five year old boy. It made all of the events not as traumatic as they would be if we were reading from the mom’s perspective. I also think the author rushed the events of the book since this entire story takes place in like a month.
