I’ve done the alternate version of this post, with books I thought I’d love and ended up hating twice (click here and here). I figured it was only fair that I do the reverse of this. Considering the book community kind of thrives on hatred (no judgement here) and I hate a lot of books I truly expected to love. Some books I hate read – yes, I hate-read, let me live my life – but I promise these aren’t books that fell into that category.
These are all books I went in to with the highest of expectations. I was so ready to drop five-star ratings and scream praise from the rooftops. Unfortunately, they were all flops. I’ve kept it mostly fantasy book theme in this particular post, or books with fantasy elements in them. I definitely want to try and theme these posts so they aren’t just books from every single genre because I feel that makes them a little bit messy.
March. What a month. I’m seeing a pattern of 2018 maybe not being great to me, but I’m trying to smile and push through. What can I say about March? My best friend turned 21 and I went out for dinner with his family, that was nice! I went back to university, it’s my last year and at this point, I am so ready for it to be over. Next week is break week though so, I’m hoping for the best. My mums health? Not great. This month she had a seizure the day I was going to see Ed Sheeran in concert. Though, I did still go see Ed Sheeran and he was incredible. I was selfish for possibly the first time in my life and ended a friendship, which still sucks that I had to hurt someone. I think that’s my March in a nutshell, honestly. A lot of bad and a few moments of good. That’s life though and I’m not here to complain.
So, how many books did I read? Not a lot. 13. Okay, so maybe a lot. I felt a bit slumpy this month and struggled to push through books. Which sucked, because I needed books this month. I did read some great books though, as you’ll see below! I also am only three books away from hitting my goal of 50 books! I kept my goal low this year and I’m glad I did. But, I’m excited to meet the goal in April! How are your reading goals going?
