March 2013 Wrap-Up

Hey, so another month has gone, and here's what I read this month!

The Madness Underneath (Shades of London, #2)  Requiem (Delirium, #3)  Hidden (Avena, #1)

1. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
2. The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson
3. Requiem by Lauren Oliver
4. Hidden by Marianne Curley
5. Zom-B City by Darren Shan
6. This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
7. In The Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters (half way through)

Yay, I read more than four books this month! I'm slowly getting back into reading, I think, so hopefully it'll last but it's exams soon so we'll see. The Name of the Star was a reread, so that I'd be completely ready for The Madness Underneath, and seriously, this series is amazing. I hope to have my review of The Madness Underneath up this month, seeing as it's already pretty late... I finished the Delirium trilogy, with the final book Requiem, and my review is here. I wasn't happy with the open end, but I went to Lauren Oliver's signing and she explained why she left it like that and now I can appreciate it. I actually managed to post my review of Hidden within a few days of finishing it, and that can be found here. Zom-B City was a good quick read, and In The Shadow of Blackbirds is proving to be very spooky so far... But that's good, I'm really enjoying it!

Pages read this month: 2230
Average number of pages per book: 343

My favourite book of the month was...


This Is What Happy Looks Like

I loved this! It's not often that I'm able to read a 400 page book in one day, but with this one I did. My review will be posted later this week, hopefully.

Here's what I'm looking forward to reading in April:

The Hit  The Madman's Daughter (The Madman's Daughter, #1)  Between Shades of Gray

And here are some other new releases to look forward to!

Impostor (Slide #2)    This Is What Happy Looks Like
In the Shadow of Blackbirds  Geekhood: Mission Improbable  The Elite (The Selection, #2)

Thanks for reading, and don't forget to let me know in the comments what you've been reading this month! 


  1. You had a really good month, Bella! Although I didn't enjoy The Statistical Probability very much I really want to read This is What Happy Looks Like so I'm really glad that you enjoyed it.

    I've already read The Hit and I don't think you'll be disappointed; it's such a good book!
    I'm also waiting for The Elite because I loved The Selection.

    Wishing you the best for April! :)

  2. I'm looking forward to your review of This is What Happy Looks Like! Can't wait to read it. I hope you enjoy all your April reads, too! The Madman's Daughter looks awesome :)

  3. Yay! I can't wait for you to read Between Shades of Gray. I'm hoping to read This is What Happy too.

  4. Your March books look really good. Requiem...sigh. Also This Is What Happy Looks Like is a really cute book. Wish I could squeeze in more reading time...maybe next month!

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever! Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
