March Round Up and Book of the Month!

March’s Book of the Month is...Where She Went by Gayle Forman!
This should really come as no surprise to those who regularly follow my blog. As I said in my review this is definitely my favourite book of the year so far and definitely one of my favourite reads ever. I’ve read a lot of amazing books this month and between them it would have been so hard to pick a book of the month had it not been for Where She Went. I found this book to be completely beautiful and heart-breaking and felt emotionally connected to it in a way that you only do with those really special books that make you think differently. I enjoyed If I Stay but Gayle Forman completely excelled herself with Where She Went in my opinion. For my full thoughts on this book and why I think everybody should read it you can check out my review here.

Bookish Lows of the month Uh it has to be reading Beauty the only book I didn’t absolutely love this month. In fact I really disliked it, other than that it’s been a fab month for books! Book’s I’m looking forward to in April April is a pretty fantastic month for books so many new releases! City of Fallen Angels anyone? Yep we’re all super excited for that!

  1. Love the roundup, Jess! I'm so with you on City of Glass...that series just keeps getting better and better! I hope to read some of the others on your list, too...Rockaholic sounds fab :)

  2. I nearly bought Rockoholic today, but I couldn't find it... But I LOVELOVELOVE the Mortal Instruments books, and I can't wait for CoFA! I NEED Where She Went :)

  3. I'm actually surprised you didn't like Beauty. I read it years ago and really enjoyed it!

  4. I like your Monthly book round-up idea. I'll definitely come back every month for an update. If Gayle Forman's new book out now or is it still in prepublication. I must get it for my library. Thanks for the recommendations.
