March TBR

Today I am doing my March TBR. March is going to be a busy month for me as it is the month of my birthday and I am also going to the country 2 country concert, which I am really excited about! As this month is going to be very busy, I am not planning on reading too many books, so lets get started...

Fruits basket Volume 3

I started this series last month and really enjoyed it, so I have decided to continue by reading V3.

City of glass by Cassandra Clare.


If you have been reading my blog for a while, then you will know that I have been saying that I will read this book for the past few months and have never got around to it, but this month I am going to try and finish this series in time for the release of City of heavenly fire in May, which explains the next two books.

City of fallen angels by Cassandra Clare.


City of lost souls by Cassandra Clare


The assassins blade by Sarah J Maas.


After reading throne of glass and crown of midnight last month, I cannot wait to read more books in that series! Which is why as this is going to be published on March 4th, I will be buying it straight away!

Thanks for reading! What books are you planning on reading this month?

Cover Reveal!

This is only going to be a short post, but I just found out that the collection of short novellas for the Divergent series, called Four, has released a cover for the book!
I wanted to do a post just showing you guys what it looked like, because I am so excited!
So here's the cover...


This cover is so awesome! I love how they put the Ferris wheel on it, because that was one of my favourite scenes in Divergent!
The release date for this is July 4th and I can't wait!

February Wrap Up

Today I am doing my February wrap up! I managed to read a total of 6 books this month which I am happy about. Also I decided to change my GoodReads challenge from 40 books to 50, as I am a few books over schedule.
So lets get on with the books that I read...

The first book that I read in February was Throne of glass by Sarah J Maas.
I LOVED this book and thought that everything about it was amazing, I actually did a full review on this which you can see here. Obviously I gave this one 5/5.

The second book that I read was Crown of midnight by Sarah J Maas.
This is the second book in the Throne of glass series and I loved it even more than I love Throne of glass! I found the storyline of this one to be even more interesting than the first and I especially loved the character development and Chaol ;)
I also gave this one 5/5 stars.

The third book that I read was Fruits basket V1 by Natsuki Takaya.
This was actually the first manga that I have ever read and it was recommended to me by a friend. At first I found the storyline to be a little confusing, but as I read on I really enjoyed it and ended up giving it 4/5 stars.

The fourth book that I read was actually a novella called Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover.
This was the first book that I have ever read on my kindle and I really enjoyed it! It is actually a companion novella to the Hopeless series, but can be read as  stand alone, which is what I decided to do. I loved the storyline and was surprised that such a short story could be so interesting. I gave this one 5/5 stars.

The fifth book that I read was actually a re-read and that was To kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee.
I re-read this for school as I have an exam coming up which this book is based on. When I first read this at school I didn't enjoy it too much and only gave it 3/5 stars, but after reading it in my own time, I came to really enjoy it and it has even become my new favourite classic book! I gave this one 5/5 stars.

The sixth and final book that I read was Fruits basket V2 by Natsuki Takaya.
After reading V1, I decided to go and pick up V2 and V3 from the library. I only got round to reading this one last month, but I enjoyed it as much as the first. These are short reads which I really enjoy, and I am planning on reading more of the series and others in the future. I gave this one 4/5 stars.

Thanks for reading! Which books did you read last month?
