This month has simultaneously been really long and ended so quickly! My health hasn’t been great so I have been struggling this month but I did have a pretty decent reading month and read some really great books! Though nearer to the end I have been in a reading slump which I hate because there are so many books I want to read!
There was some really great events that I attended this month too. At the beginning of the month I met Angie Thomas on her UK tour. Then I went to the NYA Lit Festival which was really fun! And just a couple days ago I met Yasmin Mogahed on her UK tour. Meeting her was probably my highlight of the month because she is one of my biggest role models!
So back to the books I read this month:
It’s Not About the Burqa edited by Mariam Khan – I really loved this anthology full of inspiring and empowering essays by Muslim women. A book that should be read by everyone! You can read my full review here
Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller – I loved this book so much! I read this in two evenings because I couldn’t put it down!
Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo by Rick Riordan – One of the world book day books this year. I loved seeing Percy and Grover together again! I miss their adventures so much and hope we get to see more of them together!
The Quiet at the End of the World by Lauren James – Another amazing book by Lauren! So thought provoking and amazing plot twists! You can read my full review here
Viper by Bex Hogan – I really enjoyed this book, there’s pirates and assassins and it’s dark and brutal and I’m looking forward to reading the next book! You can read my full review here
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – I reread this book after reading it for the first time several years ago and I loved it as much as I did the first time! This book is so relatable and so cute! You can read my full review here
Nine from the Nine Worlds by Rick Riordan – Really enjoyed the short stories in this book. Loved seeing Samirah and Alex and Amir. And Amir’s short story was probably my favourite!
The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston – OMG this book is the geeky adorableness I needed in my life! I think I loved this even more than Geekerella. You can read my full review here
Ayesha Dean – The Seville Secret by Melati Lum – A Muslim hijabi teenager being a badass detective and chilling with her friends on holiday and I just loved this book! Keep an eye out for my review in April as I’m part of the blog tour!
I also finally posted my review of King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo. I have been thinking about this book for a while, so it took me some time to write my review. You can find it here.
So that’s everything I read this month!
