March Wrap-up

March Wrap-up

Hi my lovely bookworms! And thank you for clicking on this reading wrap-up for March. As always, time has flown by and I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s felt that way. March has not been a great reading month for me, due to me falling ill twice and working a lot. I’ve been a little overwhelmed, so forgive me for the list not being as long as you’re used to. Quality-wise it was a pretty good reading month, though, so I’m not too disappointed. Let’s have a look at the books I read in March and then we’ll have a look at some stats and the books I’m currently reading!

March Books

March was an okay reading month for me, I guess. I would’ve loved to read a little more, especially since the Heartstopper novels are quite short, but I guess seven books is not too shabby. In April, I’m gonna go for 10. These are my March 2022 reads:

Get A Life, Chloe Brown (The Brown Sisters #1) by Talia Hibbert

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This was definitely the most disappointing book of the month. I had such high hopes for this, since it was hyped up a lot on Bookstagram, but I didn’t care for it much. I wrote an entire review on it which I’ll link below and in the title, but the explicit content was just way too graphic for my taste and it really got in the way of what would otherwise have been quite an enjoyable book.

All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Loved it. My second CoHo book and it definitely lived up to my expectations. I do need a therapist now, though. Any recommendations?

Heartstopper Volume three by Alice Oseman

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Heartstopper Volume Four by Alice Oseman

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I had to buy volume three and four in this series after finishing the first two in February. These two graphic novels were just as adorable and fun to read as the first two, though they were a little less lighthearted. Especially volume four, where mental health and mental illness are important themes throughout the story. This whole series is wonderful to read.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I finally gave in to reading the most popular fantasy series on Bookstagram. I have to say, I’m not disappointed. It is definitely living up to its expectations so far. I’ll keep you posted on the rest of the series 😉

Stressvrij Beleggen by Lieuwe Jan Eilander

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I won’t bore you with an elaborate explanation of this book. It’s a Dutch book about investing (literal translation of the title: Stress Free investing). I wanted to know more about investing, so I read it and it was quite boring, though informative.

Notes on A Nervous Planet by Matt Haig

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The last book I finished in March. I became a big fan of Matt Haig’s after reading The Midnight Library last year. This is one of Haig’s nonfiction books about his own experiences with depression and anxiety and how to deal with mental illness in such a fast-paced society.

March Stats

I have read a total of 7 books this month, which brings my total for 2022 so far to 23 books, which is 31% of my Goodreads reading goal.

I have read a total of 2616 pages in March.

All of the books I’ve read in March were between 300 and 500 pages long.

Most of the books I’ve read in March were fiction. Only 2 of them were nonfiction; one was a self help book about mental health and the other was about investing. Am I slowly becoming the dullest person alive? Maybe.

Of the 7 books I read in March, 4 were physical copies and 3 were digital editions. Two of the digital editions were graphic novels and the other was just.. very graphic..

5 out of 7 books were romance novels. That means that every work of fiction I read in March was a romance novel.

My average rating in March was 3.93⭐️. That is slightly lower than my over all average of 4.06⭐️. We’ll do better in April.

Current reads

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

You’re probably going to see a Harry Potter book appear on every monthly wrap-up for the next couple of months, since I’m doing a Rereading Harry Potter series of posts (you may have seen it, if not, you can click on the link). I’m about two-thirds of the way through the Prisoner of Azkaban right now, so I’ll definitely finish that before my April wrap-up.

The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss

I know, it’s weird to be reading a Christmas romance novel in spring, but I actually started reading this before Christmas and then I didn’t finish it in time. I put it down for like three months and then I figured it would either become a DNF (because I’m not going to wait a whole year to read the second half of a book) or I would continue right now, so I decided on the latter. I’m about 60% through the book right now, so hopefully it will appear on next month’s wrap-up.

Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig

Okay I’ve discovered that I am a sucker for Matt Haig books. This is my third book by Haig and I’m loving it. His honesty about his own experiences with depression and anxiety are just.. wow. Reasons to Stay Alive was actually written before Notes on a Nervous Planet, but they can both be read separately.

Favourite March Quotes

“And besides, libraries aren’t just about books. They are one of the few public spaces we have left which don’t like our wallets more than us.”

Notes on a Nervous Planet, Matt Haig

“Remember no one really cares what you look like. They care what they look like. You are the only person in the world to have worried about your face.”

Notes on a Nervous Planet, Matt Haig

“Happiness is not good for the economy.

We are encouraged, continually, to be a little bit dissatisfied with ourselves.”

Notes on a Nervous Planet, Matt Haig

February Reading Wrap-up

February Reading Wrap-up

Hi my fellow bookworms! Wow, I just blinked twice and all of a sudden it was March. Uhm, I’m still living in 2020, can we please slow down? February always goes by so fast. After almost 24 years, the 28 days-thing still takes me by surprise. The fact that I’ve been working 6 out of the last 7 days didn’t help much either, which is also the reason why I temporarily only delivered 2 blog posts a week instead of two and why I have been a little late on some of my posts. I apologise for my slacking off, but since I’m writing this blog for fun and I’m not getting paid, I decided not to push myself too much. Thank you for understanding. My reading month started out really well, but I have hardly read a thing this past week. I’ve still got a few busy days ahead of me, but I’m hoping to get my nose back into a book ASAP.

For my February Reading Wrap-up, I wanted to share some of my reading stats from this month, along with a list of the books that I read in February and all of this months reviews and other posts. I didn’t review a lot of the books I read this month, since some of them weren’t really worth the review, some of them I wanted to review as a complete series and some of them I just haven’t had the time for yet. If you’re curious about a book that I haven’t reviewed yet, let me know and I will move it up on my To-Be-Reviewed list.

Reading Stats

I read 7 books in February, which brings my 2022 total so far to 16 books. I set myself a reading goal of 75 books for this year. Currently, I am ahead of my reading goal by 3 books. About halfway through February, I was ahead by 6 books, because I read the first two volumes of Heartstopper in one day, but then work and COVID happened and I didn’t read much for the rest of the month. The only book I finished in the second half of February, was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I really hope things will calm down a little in March, so that I can pick up some books again.

  • I am currently at 25% of my pages goal for 2022. I have read 6.334 pages out of 25.000, so far;
  • I gave 5 out of 7 books a 4-star rating;
  • Out of 7 books, 2 were Graphic Novels, 4 were Romance, 4 were Young Adult and One was Self Help.
  • 6 out of 7 books were Fiction.
  • 5 out of 7 books were digital. The other two were hardcovers.

Books Read in February

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adhieh

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Just wow. This book blew me away. The plot, the originality, the depth of the characters, the world-building, the character development, it was all so good. There’s a full review linked below if you want to know more.

A Bookshop in Algiers by Khaouter Adimi

Rating: 3 out of 5.

A Bookshop in Algiers was one of the books I didn’t think was worth a review. It had been sitting on my bookshelf for ages and I was looking for a short read in between The Wrath and the Dawn and its sequel, so I decided to pick it up. I think the story had so much potential, but it just didn’t deliver. A bookshop in Algiers in the middle of multiple wars and uprisings and all they can write about is the paper shortage. Such a shame.

The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Adhieh (The Wrath and the Dawn #2)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The sequel to the Wrath and the Dawn was possibly even better. I didn’t write a review for this one, since I didn’t really see the point of writing a review to the sequel. I mean, it was amazing, what more can I tell you? If you liked the first book, you’re going to continue reading anyway. If you didn’t like the first book, why would you read the second one? If you’re curious about the sequel anyway, let me know and I will see if I can write a mini-review!

Heartstopper Volume 1 by Alice Oseman

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Heartstopper Volume 2 by Alice Oseman

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Heartstopper books were so much better than I had expected. I’m not usually one for graphic novels or sappy high school romances, so I was afraid I’d be disappointed or that it would be cringey, but it was actually very good. It is so cute and sweet and only slightly cringey every now and then. I’m going to postpone writing a review until I have read volume 3 and 4 as well, since I’d rather review them as a series, but I can definitely recommend the first two volumes.

How Not to Die Alone by Logan Ury

Rating: 4 out of 5.

How Not to Die Alone was my only nonfiction book from February. I got a digital copy on sale and it looked interesting. I also hadn’t read any nonfiction in a while, so I thought: why not? The book mostly focuses on dating and finding a partner, so I skimmed through that part, since I already have a partner. The last few chapters focus on how to communicate with your partner to get and stay on the same page with them, building a healthy, lasting relationship through discussing the future. Not a bad read at all if this subject interests you or if you think your relationship could benefit from it (and I think every relationship could benefit from this).

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book hardly still needs a review, right? It almost feels like an insult to even suggest such a thing. I finished the Chamber of Secrets last week for my Rereading Harry Potter series. I’ve been having so much fun rereading the Harry Potter books, I would really recommend it to everyone, especially if it has been a while.

Every Book I’ve read in January

Every Book I’ve read in January

Hello my wonderful bookworms! It feels like it was just yesterday that we were enjoying Christmas Dinner and complaining about another year ruined by COVID and now January has already come to an end. Can we please make time slow down? How am I ever going to get through my TBR before I die? Okay, let’s not go there. January is already depressing enough.

Anyway, January has been a good reading month for me. I set a goal for 75 books this year and I’m already slightly ahead. I like to be a little bit ahead so that I don’t have to stress about finding the time to read. I’ve read a total of 9 books in January and these are all of them:

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Rating: 3 out of 5.

My very first book of the year. A young shepherd goes looking for a treasure and his purpose in life. Short, sweet and a little disappointing at times. The writing was just fine, but I just didn’t always agree with the themes. Also, I really disliked the ending. Literally any ending would’ve been better. The book kind of gets you thinking, but since I didn’t much agree with the themes, I didn’t take much away from it. If you have this on your TBR, you can leave it there, for it is interesting and relatively short and easy to read, but don’t move it up on my account. If the themes speak to you, read it. Otherwise, it’s not worth your time. It counts towards your reading goal, though..

The Comfort of Others by Kay Langdale

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Heartbreaking, intriguing at times, but also very slow and occasionally dull. I liked, but not loved, this book. It peaks very early and I kept waiting for more, but it didn’t really come. Parts of the story were really heartbreaking and I noticed myself holding my breath while reading those, but most of the time I was just struggling through, waiting for something to happen. I linked a full review in the title and down below, including a summary of the story.

The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan (The Trials of Apollo #3

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The third part of the Trials of Apollo series, where the Greek God Apollo is punished by Zeus and sent to earth in the body of a mortal. Apollo is now 16-year-old Lester Papadopoulos, complete with acne and love handles. He is to stay on earth with 12-year-old Meg McCaffrey as his master until he has fulfilled his punishment. The books are set in the same world as Percy Jackson, so there are a lot of familiar faces.

I read the first two books in the series last year and since I made a New Year’s Resolution to finally finish some of the series I’ve started, I figured I’d start with this one. In The Burning Maze, Meg, Apollo and Rover (yes, Rover from the Percy Jackson series) have to find their way through the Labyrinth to rescue the next oracle in order to stop the emperors from taking over the world.

The Tyrant’s Tomb by Rick Riordan (The Trials of Apollo #4

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The fourth book in the Trials of Apollo series by Rick Riordan. Meg and Apollo set off from Camp Halfblood to Camp Jupiter, in the San Fransisco Bay Area. Camp Jupiter is the home of demigods that descend from the Roman Gods. The camp will be under attack soon and Apollo needs to find a way to defeat their enemies. That’s as much as I can say without spoiling anything. I loved this book. That’s all I will say.

Chess for Dummies by James Eade

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I started reading this Ebook AGES ago when I started to play chess with my boyfriend. I was a terrible chess player and he is actually pretty good, so I wanted to get on his level (or at least nearer to his level) so it would actually be fun for both parties. So I decided to do what I do best: read! Well, I owe mister Eade a great big thanks, because shortly after I finished this book, I won my very first chess game from my boyfriend, something I had never deemed possible. All kidding aside, the Dummies series is actually an amazing series to get into a certain subject with no prior knowledge. The book stays on the surface, but it gives you that push that gets you on a certain level. From there you can decide if you want to learn more. Chess for Dummies was very helpful to me! Now on to grand-mastery!

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (reread)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I really hope I don’t need to explain the plot to you anymore. I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in January for my Rereading Harry Potter series of posts that will continue throughout the next couple of months. I absolutely loved rereading it. There were so many details that I had completely forgotten about and I loved meeting familiar characters for the first time again. It was just perfect. I linked the whole Rereading Harry Potter series so far in the book title. Check it out if you’re interested.

The Tower of Nero by Rick Riordan (The Trials of Apollo #5

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The fifth and final part of the Trials of Apollo series. Weirdly enough, this was actually my least favourite of the three Trials of Apollo books that I read this month. I loved the final battle, which covers about half of the book, but the first half was a little annoying, if you ask me. Apollo and his companions go underground to look for the Troglodytes, a weird lizard-people who wear hats and eat other lizards, but also pretty much everything that moves. I guess the Troglodytes were amusing enough, but also a little too weird for me. The ending was epic, though, and a little emotional. Still definitely worth the read.

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Without a doubt my favourite read for this month. Honestly, it was so much better than I had expected. I was a little afraid that it was overhyped when I read it, but it really isn’t. The story is completely fictional of course, but I hope with all my heart that one day we will have a female president and she will have a bisexual son who falls in love with the queer Prince of Wales. Until then, I will just have to keep rereading this book on repeat. Full review is coming somewhere in the next week. Stay tuned 😉

Elevation by Stephen King

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Definitely the winner of the most-disappointing-January-read award. I had such high hopes for my very first Stephen King book, but alas. It wasn’t meant to be. Elevation is short, which is why I picked it as my first Stephen King book, but perhaps a little TOO short and frankly, it seemed a little rushed. I linked the full review in the title and down below.

I’m currently reading The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Adhieh, The Gifts of Reading by Robert Macfarlane and of course Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Stay tuned for updates and reviews on those! As always, thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you soon with more reviews, book recommendations and Harry Potter reading updates!

My 2022 TBR

My 2022 TBR

The last few days of 2021 went by SO fast, I hardly even had time to blink. It’s the dark magic of those final few days between Christmas and New Year’s where you’re not sure what day it is and you enter some kind of existential crisis that you don’t really snap out of until you’re a few days into the new year and you’re suddenly already behind on EVERYTHING. Well, it’s the 5th of January today and I’m suddenly behind on everything, like this post. Anyway, I was planning to get a jump on things and make sure my reading in 2022 isn’t endangered by a chaotic, rocky start. So I decided to make a list of some books I would really like to read in 2022 that have either been at the top of my TBR pile for months, have scared me because of their intimidating number of pages or books that are still relatively new and that I want to read before they lose their momentum. Even though I didn’t get a chance to finish this post before New Year’s (or in the few days after), I did actually have a flying start reading wise. So anyway, let’s get cracking. These are the books I hope to read in 2022:

  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

I bought this book a few weeks ago because I’ve been hearing so many good things about it. It’s much smaller than I’d thought, so it might be one of the first books I will read next year, to get that zero out of the way. (I wrote this before NYE and I can now tell you, this was indeed my first book of the year. Review coming soon.)

  • Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

I have a new year’s resolution to pick up a few classics next year. This seems like a good classic to start overcoming my fear of classics, since it’s one of the shorter ones.

  • The Trials of Apollo: The Burning Maze(#3), The Tyrant’s Tomb (#4) and The Tower of Nero (#5) by Rick Riordan

I read the first two books in this series, The Hidden Oracle (#1) and The Dark Prophecy (#2) in early 2021. I absolutely loved these books, which is why I bought the rest of the series too. I just haven’t really gotten around to reading them, so I hope 2022 is the year I will finally learn to finish series I start!

  • 11.22.63 by Stephen King

Stephen King is one of those authors that I would really like to read, but that I’m very intimidated by, considering most of his books are so thick they could probably be used as a murder weapon. A while back I came across a summary of this book though and I was so curious I bought it immediately (it involves the murder of JFK, time travel and I think someone falls in love with a history teacher). It’s still over 700 pages, so wish me luck.

  • Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

I read Shadow and Bone and Ruin and Rising in 2021. The first book was amazing, the second one was pretty good too, but it didn’t hold my attention as much as I’d hoped, which is why I have been reluctant to finish the series. I desperately want to know how it ends though, so I hope to pick up Ruin and Rising soon!

  • The Harry Potter series (reread 1-7) by J.K. Rowling

If you’ve been following my posts, you may know that I’m doing a reread of Harry Potter as “adult” starting next week. So naturally, The Harry Potter series should be on my list for 2022.

  • Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuinston

Mostly just following the hype on this one. I loved the cover for this one and I love that LGBTQ+ books are getting more and more popular, so count me in. I was going to read this as a buddy read, starting last Sunday, but I decided I wasn’t really in the mood for this one yet, so I’m postponing it a little.

  • The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi

The first book in this series was amazing. All over the place and very confusing, but amazing. I read it late last year and I’ve wanted to read on ever since, but the next two books are sold out everywhere. Let’s just hope they’ll be back in stock soon.

  • The Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard

The opinions on this series are divided, but I personally kind of liked the first book, so I’m willing to give the rest of the series a shot. It’s 3 more books (4 total) and 3 novellas, so we’ll see how far we can get before the end of the year.. This series is definitely not my priority, though.

  • And Then there were None by Agatha Christie

2021 was the year I really started to get into Agatha Christie novels. I would really like to read more of them in the future, starting with 2022 of course. And Then There Were None is supposed to be THE best Agatha Christie novel, so that one just had to go on my 2022 TBR.

Do you have any books you’re really hoping to read in 2022? Or any New Year’s resolutions about your reading habits? Let me know in the comments!
