For me, March was a little bit all over the place in regards to my rating. While I considered half of the books that I read as average, I had one above average read and one slightly disappointing read. I am on a contemporary kick this year, so once again, all of the books that I read this month fell in this genre, either in the young adult or new adult age range. Here’s what I read:
- 10 Things I Hate About Pinky by Sandhya Menon* (3 stars)
10 Things I Hate About Pinky reminded me a lot of From, Twinkle with Love by Sandhya Menon because the main characters are very similar in personality. From Twinkle, With Love is my least favorite book by Sandhya Menon, but I would say that I enjoyed this one a little more. This book does rely on a lot of drama and angst, so I definitely think individuals who are in the target audience of this book may relate to this book more than I did, and as a result, enjoy it more than I did.
- The Honey Don’t List by Christina Lauren* (3 stars)
When it comes to Christina Lauren books, I am always drawn in by the premise, but disappointed with the execution. Unfortunately for me, The Honey Don’t List fell into many of the gripes that I typically have about books by Christina Lauren. That being said, I did find the plot in this book more cohesive than some other books by this author. I was also extremely intrigued by the side characters, the renovation couple that the main character follows on their book tour, which made the book more enjoyable for me than other books written by this author duo. See my full review here.
- Moment of Truth by Kasie West (2.5 stars)
What a disappointment! Kasie West is an auto-buy contemporary author for me, but unfortunately, Moment of Truth fell extremely flat for me. The plot was all over the place and with the multitude of flat and inconsistent characters, there was little that I enjoyed about this book. While I did like the interesting dynamics in the main character’s family, which boosted my rating slightly, that aspect of the plot was repetitive and not fleshed out like the majority of the book.
- Chasing Lucky by Jenn Bennett* (5 stars)
What a delight! Jenn Bennett’s books get better and better with each release. I read Alex, Approximately several years ago, but didn’t get the hype. After reading Serious Moonlight and this book, I now consider Jenn Bennett an auto-buy author for me. While somewhat predictable, the writing in this book is extremely captivating as well as the characters. I highly recommend this release later in the spring!

One thought on “March Reading Wrap-Up”
Sorry to hear a number of your books were just average, Brittany. I’m especially intrigued by The Honey Don’t List since it’s on my TBR. Hope you have a better reading month in April. 🙂
