It’s already mid-March, guys. Obviously, I’m so behind in the world of books. To be honest, I haven’t been reading much. I used to be ahead in my Goodreads challenge by like 2-3 books. Now I’m just on track. I’m in a terrible reading slump. (I’m also trying to desperately save all my money, and the books I want to read at the library have long waitlists…)
On the bright side, prime-time television is back to its regular programming. I have lots of TV shows to watch to fill my time. I’m loving The Good Doctor. Although, I tend to just watch Big Bang Theory reruns on TBS to fill my evenings… I’ve also been watching a lot of Buzzfeed videos on YouTube. Watching guys wear pants with no pockets is hilarious. Also, I really want to try a bath bomb one of these days.
This month there are a quite a few hyped books coming out, such as Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi and I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman. I’m always very hesitant by hyped books. What if it’s not for me? Will people hate me for not liking it because it sure seems like everyone loves it? So basically, March is filled with books, I may want to try. One day. When the hype has calmed.
The book I’m truly excited for is Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter (3/27). I haven’t read all of her books (yet), but she hasn’t let me down. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read by Ally Carter. From reading the synopsis, I think Not If I Save You First will be quite fun. I mean the synopsis ends with “Maddie still really wants to kill Logan. But she has to save him first.” How can anyone find that not entertaining especially when you know Ally Carter writes her female leads as having many skills. Maddie could definitely kill Logan if she truly wanted to.
I’m also quite excited for With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas (3/20). (It’s kind of funny how I have a YA book and a hardcore romance possibly erotica book both on the same list.) The This Man series would probably fall in the same category as Fifty Shades of Grey. Fifty Shades of Grey was okay. I mainly read the series to see what the hype was all about. This Man, however, I found entertaining, and it had nothing to do with the erotic scenes (honest!). I think Jesse Ward as a character was laugh-out-loud hilarious. (Not sure if that’s what I was supposed to think, but whatever.) So I’m excited to see what happens in With This Man.
What books are you excited for this month? Are you going to read any of the hyped books? Let me know how they are if you do! They terrify me, to be honest. Happy reading!
