March 2021 Wrap-Up

In March I read 14 books, most of which were quite good. I was on a bit of a romance kick, as you can see. Titles and links as follows:

  • The Silver Arrow by Lev Grossman — 5 stars — I read this for the *third* time this year with my kiddo, this time by listening to the audiobook. They still love it, so the 5 star rating stands
  • An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson — 5 stars — This was a reread of the audiobook and I loved it just as much, if not more, this time around. This is probably my favorite depiction of the fae ever.
  • The Gentle Art of Fortune Hunting by KJ Charles — 5 stars — this was pure indulgence and I loved it
  • Lintang and the Pirate Queen by Tamara Moss — 5 stars — slow and slightly lacking at first but overall a fun adventure with a lot of character growth
  • How to Catch a Duke by Grace Burrowes — 4 stars — a bit slow but very enjoyable once it gets going. the romance is a tangle that does get cleared up by the end
  • Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore — 4 stars — an enjoyable romance but slightly lacking
  • When a Duke loves a Governess by Olivia Drake — 3 stars — an enjoyable romance mostly due to the governess rescuing the duke from his unruly children, but the writing style was lacking
  • She Drives me Crazy by Kelly Quindlen — 5 stars — this was a queer sports romcom and an absolute delight to read
  • So This is Love by Elizabeth Lim — 4 stars — Not my favorite Twisted Tale, but Elizabeth Lim is definitely my favorite Twisted Tale author, so it’s a close second
  • Riverboat Adventures by Lucy Kinkaid — 5 stars — I loved this as a child, and I’m delighted that my kiddo loves it too. It makes the *best* bedtime tales
  • Dearest Rogue by Elizabeth Hoyt — 4 stars — A lovely fake-married bodyguard romance with the couple travelling together so there’s not a lot of characters or plot beyond the romance
  • A Rogue of One’s Own by Evie Dunmore — 5 stars — A delightful suffragette romance with wonderful characters
  • The Helm of Midnight by Marina Lostetter — 5 stars — An excellent and extremely creepy fantasy mystery/thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat from the first page to the last. I will never forget about the Blooms. Or the Varg.
  • Malice by Heather Walter — 3 stars — This one was a disappointment. I loved it for the first 90% as a unique twist on sleeping beauty / cinderella, but it fell apart at the end and threw character development out the window in favor of a shock ending.
