Well February proved to be a complete fail when it came to reading. I don’t know if I would count it as my slump coming back, as I did read a fair amount, but I didn’t actually manage to finish a single book.
I worked through two books this month, After the Eclipse -which to be fair I am almost finished with- and a buddy read of The Cruel Prince with Ellie over at Hatterell. You really should check out her blog, its full of really interesting reads and she’s super lovely!
So within the 28 days, I managed to read 294 pages of After the Eclipse and 142 pages of The Cruel Prince, making a total of 436 pages. Hay, that could be a book, so its not too bad. But anyway, I want March to be better!
So the first two books on my March TBR should be no surprise, I plan to finish off both After the Eclipse by Fran Dorricott and The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. I’m certain that I’ll have these finished by the end of the month.
At the end of this month I will be going away to Gran Caneria, so I will probably not get much reading done then, as I am going with my partner and his family. So with this in mind, I am only going to be putting two other books on this list before my Twitter Poll book.
Firstly, for the holiday I will only be taking my kindle so as to save of luggage weight. Currently I have Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo on there, and I really do want to get through it so that I can move on to the Six of Crows duology and then King of Scars. I did try to read this when I moved last year, but it didn’t really happen- for some reason I do just really struggle to read on my kindle. But with two four hour flights, I am determined.
Now however much I really do want to pick up The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon, I just know that realistically I will not get threw it before I go away. With that in mind I am going to hold off starting on this book until I am back and can adore it like I know I’m going to.
Therefore, the next book that I can not wait to pick up, The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman, is going to be my other TBR book for the month. I don’t know overly much about this, which I have done on purpose, so all I really know is that its a thriller mystery, that I have a feeling has magical or supernatural elements. Thank you to Titan Books for sending me a copy as I really have been looking forward to this one for a very long time! It comes out in stores on the 16th of April I believe.
That leads us onto the twitter poll books for the month; and I have chosen some good ones this month. So you can choose between, A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer, The Migration by Helen Marshall, or Zero Bomb by M.T. Hill. I am really gutted that I didn’t get to The Migration last month, but hopefully I will get to it this month if you decide for me to.
What are you reading this month?

I read 6 books this month, but they were all for uni! I’ve really enjoyed making progress with The Cruel Prince though, so thanks for the lovely shoutout! Your TBR looks so good! I can’t wait to get to The Priory of the Orange Tree as soon as I have time! I’m currently reading Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie as I have a class about it tomorrow, and I’m really enjoying it so far. Then I’m moving on to Persuasion by Jane Austen.
The non-uni books I would really like to try and get to soon are Black Vodka by Deobrah Levy and The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
