Wrap Up: March 2021

Hello readers! March seems always eternal to me, like January XD

In March I managed to read 12 book with 1 DNF.

5 stars:

You can read my fangirling review of Constantine Capers here. I’ve loved it so much.

Even if I’ve read the first volume in Italian, I had to buy the other books in English, since they stopped publishing it in my country. The Sleepwalker tonic is even better than the first volume.

4 stars:

I’ve read My Fair Footman online, I really like the drawing style!

Everyone has read The Prince and the Dressmaker has loved it, and now I understand why!

3 stars:

Widdershins is loved and famous, but I didn’t felt the same love for it. It’s cute sometimes, but it’s also painful.

Miranda and Me is not exactly a book, but there are plenty of photos of dogs, and ducks, and I love dogs ❤

I’ve finally read the Italian version of Shakespeare’s Sonnets! Some of them are beautiful, but some of them are not translated in the best possible way.

The fear hunter is cozy mystery with a little bit of magic and a male love interest that’s like Dwayne The Rock Johnson, just in case you’re interested ;-p

2 stars:

I was super interested in Mama’s last hug, but I liked only the first and the second chapter. A lot of notions and “discoveries” are well known to every pet owner/lover, and I didn’t appreciated the mentions of experiments on the animals.

The sixth victim talks about the murders of Jack The Ripper… The second POV of the book is much more interesting that the one of MC.

1 star/DNF:

Hippo instead of horses or cars? Sounds good, right? Well, no.

Do you want to feel confused and in desperate need of taking notes because the plot is absurdly complicated? Welcome to The Hotel Between!!

And that was my reading month! How was yours?

Tell me in the comments!

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.

Wrap Up: March 2019

Hello April! Spring is here, where I live we don’t see a drop of rain from months, but everywhere there are flowers blossoming!

In March I read a total of 10 books, two in Italian and 1 DNF. And it was an ARC, sob.

4 stars:

I didn’t expect to like The Belles like I did, but after a not-so-great-beginning, I was captured by the story. The Lost history of dreams has a disappointing ending.

3 stars:

I’m not really into romance books, so it’s a miracle that When Dimple met Rishi has to earn 3 stars. The elsewhere emporium has a lot of problems of graphic or it was just my tablet, I don’t know. But I love the cover.

2 stars:

3 amazing covers! What’s your favourite? Unfortunately, all these three books were a delusion for me. Hand and talon is a fantasy with nothing more than others. All that we see or seem has a super instalove and love triangle, with a whiny main character. The gauntlet was boring and predictable.

1 star (DNF):

43683075

Another beautiful cover but oh my, the story is terrible. That’s why the Goodreads rating is only 2.74.

As you can see, no 5 stars read for me this month! How was your reading month?
