What I Read In March:
Daughters of Nri (The Return of Earth Mother #1) by Reni K. Amayo – YA FANTASY – REREAD – 4 STARS
Descendants of the First (The Return of Earth Mother #2) by Reni K. Amayo – YA FANTASY – 3 STARS
I read Daughters of Nri years ago and really enjoyed it so I decided to reread it before starting the second book in the series. I enjoyed Daughters of Nri just as much as I did the first time but I didn’t enjoy Descendants of the First as much. I still thought Descendants of the First was an okay read but the story felt more disjointed than the first. I felt like the characters didn’t know what they were doing most of the time and the plot lacked the purpose that the first book had but I still liked the writing and the world of this series.
Exit Strategy (The Murderbot Diaries #4) by Martha Wells – ADULT SCI-FI – 3 STARS
Home: Habitat, Range, Niche, Territory (The Murderbot Diaries #4.5) by Martha Wells – ADULT SCI-FI – 2 STARS
I was a bit disappointed in Exit Strategy, I felt bored by the overall plot and I didn’t enjoy Murderbot’s internal thoughts as much as I did with previous books. It was an overall okay read but it just didn’t hold my attention as much as the other books and I feel like it’s very forgettable. I also struggled to see the point of the Home novella since I felt like it didn’t really add anything to the characters or storyline.
King of Battle and Blood (Adrian X Isolde #1) by Scarlett St. Clair – ADULT FANTASY ROMANCE – 3 STARS
This book started off well and I really enjoyed the beginning. I liked how the main characters interacted with each other but I felt like this book was similar to other books out there which isn’t bad but I just felt that other books did these tropes, characters and storylines better. This was still an enjoyable read and I’m interested in the story and will most likely read the next book in the series.
Neon Gods (Dark Olympus #1) by Katee Robert – ADULT FANTASY ROMANCE, MYTHOLOGY – 3 STARS
The book had some hype surrounding it and I did enjoy it. I liked how the world was described in this book but I didn’t have any strong feelings towards either of the main characters. I thought they were okay characters but not very memorable, I did find some of the side characters interesting so I’m still excited for future books.
Smoke Bitten (Mercy Thompson #12) by Patricia Briggs – ADULT URBAN FANTASY – 3 STARS
I love the Mercy Thompson world and I usually enjoy reading each new book but I didn’t enjoy this one as much as I hoped. It was an okay read but the plot felt like filler and on top of that there was some relationship drama added to the mix that I didn’t really care for.
Moon Touched (Zodiac Wolves #1) by Elizabeth Briggs – ADULT PARANORMAL ROMANCE – 3 STARS
There were parts of this book I liked and parts I didn’t. I didn’t like the first part of this book especially with how Ayla was treated at the beginning by her pack but I enjoyed the parts where Kaden and Ayla interacted and how the met. I thought they had good chemistry but as it went on I felt that fade away a bit.
Midnight Sun (The Twilight Saga #5) by Stephenie Meyer – YA PARANORMAL – 4 STARS
It’s been a lot of years since I’ve been in the Twilight world but I really enjoyed all the nostalgia this book brought back for me. I was smiling at so many things in this book and I liked reading from Edward’s pov. Obviously this book isn’t for everyone but as a fan of the Twilight series I really enjoyed it.
