This Week’s Topic: Best Book of March!
I read a lot of really good books in March, so it was really difficult to narrow it down this month. But obviously I managed, somehow.
Honestly, as much as I loved Cinder, I loved Scarlet even more. My main issue with Cinder was the fact that I called the Big Reveal from pretty much the beginning, but this time when I got to the reveals – and there were several of them – they caught me completely off-guard. (One of them was so shocking to me I actually yelled “OH CRAP!” and then mentally apologized to my neighbors, who are pretty used to me yelling at the TV during Seahawks games and Downton, but still.) But aside from that, I loved the characters, old and new, and I loved how Cinder and Scarlet’s stories were separate and yet still intertwined. And speaking of Scarlet, she is totally fierce, and I can’t wait to see more of her.
I read the last 300 pages in one sitting, partly because The Girl of Fire and Thorns was just that good, but mostly because I had to get it back to the library before closing in order to avoid late fines and it turns out the library closes really, really early on Saturdays. I loved watching Elisa’s transition from someone who lacks confidence to someone who believes in and stands up for herself. I really wish this book had been around when I was a teenager, because I sure could’ve used it.
What are the best books you read in March?
