Wrap Up: March 2020

Hello readers, how are you?

I’m writing to you from northern Italy, so we are still in lockdown, but today begin the Magical Readathon, so I’m pretty excited!

In March I managed to read 9 books, and I DNFed only one book. As always, if the book it’s in my first language (Italian), I will write the translated title too.

5 Stars:

It’s insensitive to read a book about a woman who carries a disease during a pandemic? Probably, but I’ve learned so much thanks to Fever, that’s inspired by real events.

Edelweiss sent me this super cute children book, and Little Ghost is definitely the cutest ghost I ever saw.

Thanks to Kindle Unlimited I discovered the Time Hunters series, and it’s incredible, I can’t wait to read the other volumes!

3 stars:

The adventures of Tom Finch, gentleman, is a surprising historical fiction about a blind musician. I’ve loved the ending.

Do you know that I love books with weird/long titles? Keep smiling, your teacup is levitating is the perfect example, a non-fiction book about ghosts, strange scream in the night, etc…

I’ve heard a lot of things about Jackaby, and at first, I enjoyed it, but I prefer books with the same situations, but with more deepness, darker characters.

2 stars:

If you ask me what’s my favourite seaside city in the world, I probably will answer Whitby, UK, so I was pretty excited about Never the bride, set in Whitby with monsters and the bride of Frankenstein who runs a B&B, but it was disappointing.

The confectioner’s guild has a beautiful cover, a lot of YA clichès (love triangle, love at first sight, special snowflake syndrome, I love you but I can’t be with you…) and even if talks about cakes, sweets and food a lot (YEEAAH), I found it fatphobic, and I didn’t like it.

I colori delle stelle (sorry, no translated title) talks about the months Gauguin and Van Gogh has spent together in Arles. I love Van Gogh with all my heart, and I enjoyed the second half of the book, unfortunately, it’s not well written.

DNF:

19448543

Another beautiful cover here, but Eyelet is a whiny, spoiled ungrateful main character. I couldn’t stand her, so Lumière is my DNF of this month.
