It’s with a heavy heart, I say goodbye to my favourite month of the year, March – favourite because it’s my birth month obvs. I read 14 books this month, one of which I can’t talk about as it’s a potential Ninja Book Box book – I’m fighting hard to get it in a future box – it was sooooooo good! But for the purpose of this post, we’ll recap the 13 books I can talk about.
It was a good month, I enjoyed every book I read, read along with a few book clubs and hosted a readalong, on Instagram, for It by Stephen King. The next King readalong will be in May, and we’re reading Needful Things, let me know if you want to join in! 9 of the books I read were featured in my March TBR post – the other 3 I’ll likely carry over to next month. I got distracted as I joined Edelweiss this month, as if I need another platform to get books! I also realised I need to get my Netgalley shelf under control. Anyway, let’s recap all the bookish activity that took place on the blog this month…
The standout books of the month were:
The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
Hangman by Daniel Cole
Mister Tender’s Girl by Carter Wilson
Also read this month:

Other bookish posts this month:
Criminally Good Book Club:
Looking for an online book club? Come and read some criminally good books with us over on Instagram – @criminallygoodbookclub. Our April book is a Japanese crime fiction novel from the same author who penned Confessions, one of my top ten books of last year!
Penance by Kanae Minato
When a group of young girls are approached by a stranger, they cannot know that the encounter will haunt them for the rest of their lives.
Hours later, Emily is dead. The surviving girls alone can identify the killer. But not one of them remembers his face…
Driven mad by grief, the victim’s mother demands the girls find the murderer or else atone for their crimes. If they do neither, she will have her revenge. She will make them pay…
From the critically acclaimed author of Confessions, Penance is a dark and disturbing tale of revenge that will leave you reeling.
And that’s a wrap for my favourite month of the year, March. Join me on the blog tomorrow as I look ahead at my April TBR.
