March did turn out to be pretty good for reading in the end – I read everything on the list I had (Minus The 3rd Woman by Jonathan Freedland, which I realised doesn’t actually publish for another few months, so I’m saving it until it’s a little more topical! And Days of Blood and Starlight, which I didn’t quite manage to finish, but will do in the next couple of days) and a few extras to boot.
Gifted by Donald Hounam
This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
The Kissing Booth by Beth Reekles
The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
It took me ages to read this when I really felt it shouldn’t have. And perhaps that was partly to the detriment of my enjoyment of this, because, while I enjoyed it very much, I couldn’t help feeling that I should have been loving it utterly. It combined zombies with clever science ideas and survival drama, with compelling and complicated characters. But I think I hyped myself a bit too much. I’ll try not to do that again…
Accidents and Incidents by Riley Graham
Charmfall by Chloe Neill
Continuing in the light, girly vein of the previous two books, Charmfall follows the continuing adventures of best buds Scout and Lily as they try to survive boarding school, brat packs, formal dances, oh and attacks from the Dark Elite. This left rather more questions open than I would have hoped for what appears to be the final instalment in the series, but if I don’t think about it too hard, I still really enjoyed it. I just love Neill’s voice – there were several laugh out loud quotes in this.
The Eternity Fund by Liz Monument
Twisted Dark by Neil Gibson
Review to follow.
