Hello! As it's 1st April today, I thought I would do a quick March wrap up post! I'll start with the books I read this month:
I reread Illuminae and Gemina so that I would be fully prepared for Obsidio, all by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, which came out this month! They were just as good, if not better the second time around. Then I read Obsidio and it was everything I wanted it to be from the finale of this amazing series. Keep an eye out this week for a series review.
Then I read In Paris With You by Clementine Beauvais. I was super excited for this book, which is out in June, as I was a huge fan of another of her books, Piglettes, which came out last year. However this book was totally different - it's a verse novel set in Paris, very romantic - and I didn't enjoy it much at all. I'll be posting a full review nearer the time of publication, but I'm sad to say this wasn't for me.
However, I then read Scythe by Neal Schusterman and I was absolutely blown away. I'd heard it was good but I wasn't expecting to love it nearly as much as I did. I was hooked right from the very start and I'm itching to get the second one now - but I'll have to wait until June until it's published here. I'll be reviewing it in the next week or so look out for that!
Next up, here's a recap of what I got up to on the blog this month. I decided to restart blogging again since I haven't had time to while at uni, so even though I only posted two posts, I feel like I have achieved something.
My first post was an Easter TBR post. I've been back from uni for two weeks and I had a big stack of books to read, so I posted about that here. I've managed to read three of the six I wanted to read (and I'm still here for three more days) so I'm pleased. Check out the post to see what's coming up next on my TBR!
It's giveaway time! 😀 RT+follow for a chance to win a signed copy of This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada! In case you need a reason here's my review: https://t.co/BV9PbFzT7bUK only. Ends 01/04/18 at 3pm. Good luck! 👊 pic.twitter.com/zmmVtjS2ab— Bella (@CheezyfeetBooks) March 25, 2018
Then I posted a review and giveaway for a signed copy of This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada. I was lucky enough to go to a meet and greet with Emily while she was over for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize, and it was super fun! We had fun cocktails and great bookish (and otherwise!) conversations. I absolutely adored This Mortal Coil and I was so happy to be able to give a signed copy away. If you're still not convinced, you can check out my review here.
I also acquired a lot of new books this month (I have no self-control in Waterstones and I needed lots of book therapy I mean what can I say...). A fair few of them are still at uni because I couldn't fit them in my cases so I'll include them in my April wrap up, but here's some that I received while at home:
I’ve got some great proofs in the last couple of weeks! The Belles and Orphan Monster Spy were from my friend @alfierowland100 so you can buy them in stores already, and All These Beautiful Strangers (19/7) and The Smoke Thieves (3/5) are from @penguinukbooks 👌 isn’t All These Beautiful Strangers gorgeous?!
