I’m sad to say March is over, my favourite month of the year is no longer upon us, so with great nostalgia, let’s wrap up March!
I read 10 books this month, and despite all the procrastinating I did this month, I managed to catch up on my reviews (except 3, which are written and scheduled for early next month). Here’s a look back at what I read this month…
The standout reads of the month were:
Frailty by Betsy Reavley, a brilliant, five star, psychological thriller that plays out every parents worst nightmare – reviewed here.
Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski, a story of murder, narrated in six podcasts, haunting and real, I’d believe you if you said this was True Crime and not a work of fiction. You can read my review here.
Painkiller by N.J. Fountain, a great one for fans of slow-burners and unreliable narrators, reviewed here.
Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse, black comedy at its funniest, a great read, so worthy of the five stars I awarded it! Review coming next month.
Also read, reviewed and recommended this month were:
Follow Me Down by Sherri Smith
Dangerous to Know by Anne Buist
Purged by Peter Laws
Miss Christie Regrets by Guy Fraser-Sampson
On the blog next month will be reviews for these two books I also read:
Other bookish posts this month:
I’m adding in a new weekly feature to the blog!
It’s exactly what the banner says, each Sunday, I’ll post a mini review of a short story I’ve read recently. I was meant to introduce this feature at the start of the new year, but that whole me-procarastinating thing delayed it – it’s here now and that’s all that matters. If you’re a reader of short stories, get involved!
Oh, one last thing:
My Instagram book club – Criminally Good Book Club – are reading Perfect Days by Raphael Montes in April, please join us! You can find us on Instagram at: @criminallygoodbookclub
The path to true love rarely runs smoothly…
Teo, a medical student, meets Clarice at a party. Teo doesn’t really like people, they’re too messy, but he immediately realises that he and Clarice are meant to be together. And if Clarice doesn’t accept that? Well, they just need to spend some time together, and she’ll come to realise that too.
And yes, he has bought handcuffs and yes, he has taken her prisoner and yes, he is lying to her mother and to his mother and to the people at the hotel he’s keeping her at, but it’s all for her own good.
She’ll understand. She’ll fall in love. She’ll settle down and be his loving wife.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, brings us to the end of March’s wrap up.
