March Roundup

It’s a quarter of the way through the year already. This is madness. Easter is already over! I’m not ready for us to be this far into the year – how is it going so fast?

Favourite Book This Month

I had two five star books this month, but they were both re-reads. So my gold star for March 2018 goes to Love, Hate & Other Filters. It was really interesting to read a story of a totally normal Muslim girl and her experience of Islamophobia in her everyday life. It’s not something I really knew anything about, and I appreciated that insight. Besides that, it was well-written, and had lots of interesting framing of the story as through the medium of film-making, the main character’s specific interest. It was really thoroughly enjoyable!

Least Favourite Book This Month

Go, Set A Watchman was a big disappointment, although it was an interesting insight into how books can develop. I expanded on that a little in my review also.

Favourite cover art

Definitely The Astonishing Colour of After wins it for me this month. I didn’t massively like the book itself, but the cover art is just beautiful.

Other…

Lower number of books read this month, leaving me on 69 for the year so far (teehee!). I’m happy with how it’s going, but unhappy with how blogging went this month. I was very busy, but I let it slide, and I could’ve made the time to post more. I’ll try harder in April!
