What I Read in March
I got so much reading done in March! I was expecting my usual two books, so I'm really happy I got through three books.
As The World Falls Down Katy Nicholas
From the ashes of the old world, something new rises...
Years after a mysterious plague wipes out humanity, Halley Clarke leaves the safety of home to search for other survivors. She finds Nate Reynolds, a young man devastated by loneliness and despair.
Instantly, there is an inexplicable connection between them, and it soon becomes clear that this was no ordinary virus. They soon discover they aren't the only ones changed by the virus or guided by strange feelings or voices.
Their lives and the survival of humanity rests on uncovering answers and understanding their new world. Will the truth they unearth bring them closer together or tear them apart?
This book was so good! Although a little scary to read with coronavirus currently going round, but I think that just added to the intrigue. There's never a dull moment in As The World Falls Down, I would absolutely recommend it to everyone, and I can't wait for Katy to release book two!
Then She Was Gone Lisa Jewell
She was fifteen, her mother's golden girl. She had her whole life ahead of her. And then, in a blink of an eye, Ellie was gone.
Ten years on, Laurel has never given up hope of finding Ellie. And then she meets a charming and charismatic stranger who knocks her off her feet. But what really takes her breath away is when she meets his seventeen year old daughter.
Because his daughter is the image of Ellie.
Now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back.
What really happened to Ellie? And who still has secrets to hide?
I sped through this book. Mostly because I wasn't really into it, but I refuse to DNF books. I'm very glad I carried on with it because wow I wasn't really expecting that ending. I certainly didn't expect to be crying over the last few chapters. It was an absolute roller coaster ride, and now I'm dying to read my next Lisa Jewell novel!
The Witches Kiss Katherine & Elizabeth Corr
Merry is an average teenager. She's also a witch. She is trying not to be, but she is. Then Jack comes into her life and she can't help falling under his spell. One problem - he's part of an evil, centuries-old curse that Merry now has to break. If Merry has lost her heart, will she lose her life too? Or can true love's kiss save the day?
Being a witch is dangerous - but being in love is even worse...
I loved this book. It was more Harry Potter kind of magic than I expected, but I loved the mix of modern and Olde times. I probably would have enjoyed it more as a younger reader, but I'm still thinking about getting the second book.
Have you read any of these? Let me know!
Until next time,
