March Reads!

March is undoubtedly my favourite month of the year and why shouldn’t it be? It’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH!! I absolutely love celebrating it. I don’t even get morose about aging. But, now that I turned 25, who knows, I might! Another reason why March was fantastic is because I read a lot of books! I have a list of doing 19 things in 2019 & among those, one thing is reading 19 books! Three months in, I have read 5 books & 4 of those in the month of March. Here we go!

The Dry is a mystery thriller by Jane Harper. After I read her book ‘Force of Nature’, I was obviously going to read all of her books! Her writing is wonderful & always leaves you wanting for more. I finished reading The Dry in about a week & I have already started reading her book ‘Lost Man’. I really wanted to do a full-fledged review on this novel, but it’s impossible to do so without giving away spoilers. And, this book NEEDS TO BE READ without spoilers.
With Aaron Falk as the main detective, the novel is about solving a homicide. In a family of four, the father (Luke Hadler) kills his wife, his young son & then himself. Or does he?
Aaron happens to be a childhood friend of Luke’s. So, the story has a link from 20 years ago when they were friends & then 20 years later where Luke is dead & Aaron is trying to find out what really has happened!
Getting to my thoughts to ‘The Dry’, well, what can I say? It’s a mind blowing story with many mysterious shocks along the way. And, the best part is that the ending is unpredictable. The writing & the thought-process of the author is intricate & will leave you astonished. It is unraveling as all the loose ends & half-way story lines of various characters tend to meet at the end giving such a satisfying feeling. The plot is so well-written that you won’t be able to stop reading until the story is finally finished!
Go and read this novel right away. I cannot stop talking about it. It is truly one of the best mystery thrillers I have read in a long time! I have rated it at 4.5/5 on Goodreads.

The Sun and her Flowers is a collection of poems by Rupi Kaur. I had read her poetry in ‘Milk and Honey’ which I didn’t like much. But, this one, was beyond excellence. It is divided in 5 parts which mirrors the life of a flower; Wilting, Falling, Rooting, Rising, and Blooming. Every part is equally beautiful. The most wondrous thing is that it is so very relatable. Be it about the fall through or getting up or blossoming! Each and every word in that book has significance. Not only does the poetess try to be our friend with the magic of words, she also shares her own inspiring journey. It is going to be the kind of book I will always carry around with me.
I’m sure most of you have already read it. But, if you haven’t read it right away. You won’t be disappointed. I have rated it at 4.5/5 on Goodreads.

I read 'Five Feet Apart' written by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry & Tobias Iaconis earlier in March. The only reason I was keen on reading this one is because it has got its movie adaptation which was released on 15th March starring Cole Sprouse!
I have rated it at 3/5 stars on Goodreads. You can find the full review here.

I read a mystery thriller named ‘Force of Nature’ by Jane Harper. I decided to read it because it was in the list of ‘unputdownable books’ & yet it took me a long time to finish it. But, that’s my fault, because the book stands true to be on that list!
I have rated it at 4/5 on Goodreads! You can check the full review here.

For April, I am planning to read /complete at least 3 novels, which are, The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, Lost Man by Jane Harper & Hippie by Paulo Coelho. I have also started reading Becoming by Michelle Obama, but I think it will take some time for it to complete.

I’m already loving all these books & I hope I get to finish reading all these incredible stories by next month! Have you read any of the books from my ‘March Reads’? I’d love some more book recommendations too, so keep ‘em coming!!
Until next time!
