Wrap-up & Book Haul: [Monstrous] MARCH!


I’m a little late, but it’s entirely my own fault! I usually edit my wrap-up throughout the month, which saves me a lot of time when I actually have to post it. But guess who didn’t do that at all during March? Right. Me!
Anyway, it’s here now! I read more than I expected to and.. I kind of, sort of stuck to my book buying rules?

So, let’s see how March went!

As always, covers link back to the Goodreads-page!
The star-ratings link back to my reviews if I’ve posted them or added one on Goodreads!

Books I read


When The Tik-Tik SingsThe Dark Descent Of Elizabeth Frankenstein

When the Tik-Tik Sings by Doug Lamoreux ~ ★★★
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White ~ RTC

I read two books that fit the monstrous theme I was going with, which isn’t too bad considering it isn’t my usual genre at all. I quite liked The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein, but When the Tik-Tik Sings was a bit of a disappointment for me. Too many characters, too many details and too many terms I wasn’t familiar with – that about wraps it up, haha.


Hold Me Close (Last Frontier Lodge, #7)

Hold Me Close #7 by J.H. Croix ~ ★★★

This was actually my first read for the Magical Readathon that’s going on in April! Since I could start my Charms book four days early, I decided to go with this eBook. Quite enjoyed it, but.. not overly so.


InternmentOnce & Future (Once & Future, #1)

Internment by Samira Ahmed ~ ★★★★☆
Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy ~ ★★★★

I read two ARC’s! Which means I only have three left on my TBR, yay! Both of these were so good though. Internment has a strong message, definitely one I’d recommend to fans of THUG and Dear MartinOnce & Future is easily one of my favorite retellings now. Both because of all the queerness – seriously, check out my review! – and because it’s science fiction I.. love? Which is new still. So far only The Illuminae Files got me to use the word “love”, haha.


The Prep and the Punk (The Boys Only #1)

The Prep and the Punk by Imogene Kash ~ ★★★★☆

Total number of books read: 6
Average rating: 3.8

My haul


Poison Study (Study, #1)Magic Study (Study, #2)Fire Study (Study, #3)
The Selection (The Selection, #1)The Elite (The Selection, #2)The One (The Selection, #3)


My Lady's Choosing: An Interactive Romance NovelYou're Welcome, Universe

Look at me going! Admittedly, I couldn’t resist the secondhand books but those are two series I read in Dutch years ago and I really want to reread them in English at some point so.. yeah.. My Lady’s Choosing and You’re Welcome, Universe are two books I actually ordered in February, but they only arrived in March! And my FairyLoot only arrived yesterday so I couldn’t include those books in my wrap-up, haha.

I read half of what I read in February and I’m actually quite freaking pleased with that! I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to read at all, but I’ve been managing fine so far – yay!

How did your March go? Did you read any Monstrous reads?
What’s on the TBR for April?

  1. I hope you’ve been well and that your little family’s well, too, Kathy ❤
    I'm so curious to hear your thoughts about You're Welcome, Universe! I read it a couple months ago and if I liked the story, somehow the character didn't quite… click with me as much as I would have liked to. BUT YAY for deaf rep, too 🙂
    Happy reading ❤


    1. We are, thank you! Hope you’re well too, Marie. ❤
      The deaf rep is exactly what made me want to get my hands on a copy of You're Welcome, Universe so we'll see how it goes when it comes to everything else in the book, haha.
      You too!
