March Reads

Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell (5/5*s)
Kindred Sprits is a short story released for World Book Day, which follows Elena as she queues to see the new Stars Wars film. Rainbow Rowell is one of my favourite authors and although I haven't seen any of the Star Wars films I really loved this. It's only 60 pages long but I really enjoyed the story and getting to know the characters. I hope we get to read more about Elena and Gabe soon!

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne (4/5*s)
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas follows Bruno and his family as they move out of Germany and live close to a concentration camp, where Bruno then becomes friends with one of the prisoners. I tried reading this when the film came out but I only got half way through it. I'm so glad I gave it another chance as it really gives a unique view on the holocaust and WW2.

City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #3) by Cassandra Clare (5/5*s)
City of Glass continues Clary story and the battle against Valentine, but this time in the setting of Idris. This is the best book in the series so far! City of Glass was full of action, unlike the previous book. I really enjoyed Simon's character in this book and I found myself liking him more and more. I also liked the change of location and finding out more about Idris and how the Clave works. A few of the plot twists were predictable, but there were also a few shocking ones that I really didn't expect!

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer (4/5*s)
Scarlet follows Scarlet Benoit as she encounters mysterious street fighters and cyborg fugitives, and tries to find her Grandmother! I really enjoyed Scarlet and I loved seeing how her story fit in with the main plot line of Cinder and Queen Levana. I definitely preferred Scarlet and Wolf to Cinder and Kai! I also loved the introduction of Thorne - I can tell he'll be one of my favourite characters by the end of series.

Persuasion by Jane Austen (4/5*s)
Persuasion follows Anne Elliot as she finds herself thrown together with Captain Wentworth, 8 years after she broke of her engagement with him. This is one of the shorter Jane Austen novels, which I actually preferred as it felt more plot-driven. I also really loved Anne, and I couldn't help but feel sorry for her!

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare (4/5*s)
The Infernal Devices is the first spinoff series from The Mortal Instruments, with Clockwork Angel following Tessa Gray as she encounters the world of the Shadowhunters in Victorian London. I really loved this book and I think I'll end up liking this series more than The Mortal Instruments. Although it's set in the same universe, The Infernal Devices has a completely different feel to it. I can't wait to find out more about Tessa, Will and Jem!

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (?/5*s)
The Secret Garden centres around a 10 year old girl called Mary, as she moves to England to live with her Uncle and discovers a forgotten garden on the grounds of the manor. I actually haven't finished this yet but I only have around 100 pages left and I'm hoping to finish tonight. I'm really enjoying it so far and I love reading about Dickon and all of his animals!
