Books Wrap Ups

March Wrap Up

April 6, 2020
March 2020

This month I've had to split my Wrap up into two posts, this one is the books I've read be they fiction, graphic novels etc and then there will be another post of all the manga I've read in March. There was a lot, nine volumes of different series altogether. I feel very pleased with myself for how much I've read over the last month. Found a few new favourites too.

House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas

House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas

I have been waiting for this book since it was first announced and I wasn't disappointed at all. However, it really wasn't what I expected. I've come to love Sarah J Maas for her medieval-esque fantasy and this wasn't that in the slightest. It was very urban, modern with guns and our technology. Yet everything else was so quintessentially Sarah. The characters, the plot and the creation of the world. I utterly adored this book.

Snug by Catana Comics

Snug by Catana Comics

The sweetest collection of comic pages about love, life and the sweet little mundane moments in a couple. I've loved all of the Catana Comics collections so far. I can't wait for her to release more. I always go through and tab my favourite pages and the ones I tend to relate to. If only to show it to Sam and be like, look 'it us'.

Sadie by Courtney Summers

Sadie by Courtney Summers

I picked this off my shelf randomly as something to kill time. I ended up falling in love with the story and binge reading it. It's such a clever idea to have two timelines running alongside one another both in different formats. The present storyline is told via a Podcast recounting parts of the missing person case. The past storyline is told via prose and fills in the blanks of the podcast. It's simply amazing.

Auschwitz and After by Charlotte Delbo

Auschwitz and After by Charlotte Delbo

This was a phenomenal book. We were set the task of reading the first volume of this, None of Us Will Return but I was that captivated by Charlotte Delbo's style of writing that I read the entire book. She was a French Resistance fighter that was captured and spent time in Auschwitz. She writes short stories and poetry about hers and her comrades time in the camp. It's strange and probably the wrong word to call this a beautiful book considering the subject, but that was the first word her writing made me think.
