March Wrap Up

March Wrap Up

March was a great reading month for making a small dent into the books that I own. I made a post about organizing on the books I own on Goodreads, which you can read here: Goodreads & Book Organization.

This month I read 10 books and I have read 24 this year out of 75 (which is my goal for the year). I’m 4 or 5 books ahead of my Goodreads goal for the year, so I am very happy about that!

So without further ado let’s get into the books that I read this month!

1) Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4)

The final installment to the Lunar Chronicles, I started this series way back in high school and I never got around to finishing it and I am so glad that I finally did!

This is a book that I don’t own but I had the audio-book checked out from the library and I often listen to audio-books while I’m at work.

Rating: ★ (5/5 stars)

-) Emergency Contact

by Mary H.K. Choi

The next book I attempted to read I ended up DNF’ing (Did Not Finish).  There was a lot of hype surrounding this book when it was first released and it looked like a cute and fun contemporary read, but I couldn’t get past the first two chapters. There is harsh language and I didn’t like the writing style. As a whole I found the language and the pop culture references to be overwhelming and quickly decided this book wasn’t for me.

2) Bright Burning Stars

This is one of the books that I included on my March TBR as a maybe! I got sent an E-ARC of this book because I am in the official blog tour! I ended up reading this book in two sittings, it was short but I also needed to know how it ended!

3) Becoming Gertrude: How Our Friendships Shape Our Faith

I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a rather short read and overall, I didn’t get much out of it for the length. It didn’t add much value to my life, but that doesn’t mean that someone else might get more out of it.

4) Let Me be a Woman

by Elisabeth Elliot

This book is written by the wife of Jim Elliot who was one of five missionaries killed while participating in Operation Auca, an attempt to evangelize the Huaorani people of Ecuador.

5) China Rich Girlfriend (Crazy Rich Asians #2)

by Kevin Kwan

I listened to this as an audiobook and it was JUST as entertaining as the first book in the series: Crazy Rich Asians. Astrid is by far my favorite character. I plan on finishing the series.

-) Glass Sword (Red Queen #2)

This book has been on my TBR for over a year now, and I finally decided to DNF it after making my way halfway through it. I just can’t seem to bring myself to like it. I struggled with the first book being predictable, and slightly boring but still entertaining. Glass Sword is still predictable, and it is SO repetitive. I’m going to put-it down for now, but I’m going to hold off on un-hauling it. I might try listening to the audiobook for awhile? If that doesn’t work, it will need to find a new home.

I really wanted to like this series, but so far, it seems its just not the series for me.

6) In His Image: 10 Ways God Calls Us to Reflect His Character

by Jen Wilkin

Rating:  (5/5 stars)

7. List of 13

I had a hard time rating this book, because while I enjoyed it, there were some obvious flaws as well as some dull points and other points that flat out didn’t make sense.

Let me also say that I don’t believe in purgatory, and the fact that there were so many other biblical references made this a hard book for me to read, even though it is fiction.

Rating:  (3/5 stars)

I picked this book up from my library when I saw that it had just been released! I really enjoyed the first two books in the series (Nemesis: Book Review and Genesis: Book Review).

So this wasn’t a book that was on my Goodreads TBR of Books I own, but I made an exception for this new release (and I didn’t break my book buying ban, so that’s a plus).

9. When Sinners Say “i Do”: Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

This was the book that Trey and I have been going through for our pre-marital counseling sessions with our pastor. This book was incredible. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who is getting married, or is married!

Rating:  (5/5 stars)

10. Furyborn (Empirium #1)

by Claire Legrand

I started this book by physically reading it, and then I got busy and finished it as an audiobook.

Rating: (4/5 stars)
