March has been a month, reading wise but also it was weird because of RL things as well. I mean, it’s very hard to ignore the global health crisis we all are facing. In fact, because of the pandemic, we all are probably at home. Chilling, feeling scared, maybe even losing our minds. Let’s not think too much on this.
In any case, because of the actual pandemic, I don’t have a lot of books this time. Oh, well. Hopefully, by the time quarantine will be done, I might have chance to buy more books. (*bookshelf glaring at me from the corner muttering* As if you need more books, read the books you have ignored for years first! This is the time you can actually do that.)
Let’s all thank whatever gods are out there doing their work.
Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid
Spellhacker by M. K. England
The Sisters Grimm by Menna Van Praag
This month, technically I didn’t actually buy anything. I had bought these either in February and they arrived late or they came in a book box. So yeah. I am pretty proud of myself this month. I might not be so proud once the whole quarantine situation is dealt with.
I admit that part of the reason I just snapped up Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid is because of bookstagram. I didn’t even know about this book till it exploded over bookstagram. So yeah. That’s the reason I have it in my possession now and I must admit that I kinda admit that I am, for once, of the opinion that US edition is prettier but because it’s India, I get the UK edition.
The next two books came in a subscription book box. I already had an e-ARC of one of them but I really just wanted to read this book in the physical format because just look at that cover! The Sisters Grimm by Menna van Praag is one of the prettiest book covers I have seen recently and I have seen quite a few. It’s about four sisters and magical world and something more. I have deliberately kept myself vague in the knowledge because I don’t want to have any expectations from it.
Then comes Spellhacker by M. K. England. It’s shiny and pretty! Also I had had my eye on it the second I read the synopsis. I recently read The Disasters by the same author and really enjoyed it. It might not have been mind-blowing but it’s certainly an enjoyable read. And sometimes it’s just what you need. I am expecting the same level of fun from this one too. Let’s see how it goes.
And that’s it for this month. I do have a few ebooks that I bought recently but they might come up in the reviews, hopefully.
Till the next time!
