Let’s just pretend that I’m still uploading consistently and that we aren’t already a week into April, okay? OKAY! Now that we’ve got that sorted here’s my March wrap up!
1. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken (Book 1 in The Darkest Minds series)
The children of today face two futures, number one is being killed by a mysterious disease, number two is being locked up forever. Ruby has survived and now lives as a prisoner amongst the other kids who have formed special powers. But she is powerful and now she will be freed because of that.
Since the movies coming out, I thought it was finally time I pick up this book. I honestly don’t know what I was expecting but it was completely different from what I thought it would be. While I did really enjoy this book I’m not too sure if I will be continuing on with the series, but despite that, I am still super excited for the film.
2. Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige (Book 3 in the Dorothy Must Die series)
Dorothy saved Oz, she was their hero and protector. But then she came back and now Oz’s savior is their destroyer.
After the second book I wasn’t sure if I wanted to continue, but luckily the third book picked up a bit. I do believe that this series could have been made into a trilogy, some parts just seem unnecessary to the story. But I am still excited to see how the story will end.
3. Scythe by Neal Shusterman (Book 1 in the Arc of Sythe series)
The world is perfect, there is no disease, no war, and death has been conquered. But the world cannot survive immortality, people must die, and someone must do it.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to dedicate myself to this book as much as I would have liked, but that hardly dented my enjoyment. The world and plot are as fascinating as they are original and I can’t wait for more. You can read my full review by clicking here.
4. Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh (Book 1 in the Flame in the Mist series)
Mariko’s only purpose is to marry, but as she is on her way to meet her future husband her convoy is attacked and she left, assumed to be dead. Mariko knows that the Black Clan must be responsible so to seek revenge and discover the truth she disguises herself as a boy and attempts to join their clan.
Mulan is my all time favourite Disney movie so I’m not sure what took me so long to read this book. While it was very different to the movie it was just as enjoyable. The plot remained constantly intriguing, the story addicting and the characters lovable.
5. The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty (Book 1 in The Daevabad Trilogy)
Nahri survives the streets of Cairo using her wits and simple tricks. But when she accidentally summons a mysterious Djinn warrior, she is forced to accept that her world is more magical than she ever thought possible.
While I was a little hesitant at the beginning this book ended up sweeping me away into its world and characters. It so different from any other fantasy book I’ve read but it’s made me full in love with every aspect of it. You can read my full review by clicking here.
