March Wrap-Up
Clockwork Prince - Cassandra Clare
Clockwork Princess - Cassandra Clare
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - L. Frank Baum
Contamination (Feast of Weeds) (Volume 2) - Jamie Thornton
Glass Sword (Red Queen) - Victoria Aveyard
Rippler - Cidney Swanson
Ignite Me - Tahereh Mafi

This month was not a bad reading month, considering all I had to do I'm pretty pleased with myself. I managed to complete 7 novels. I participated in March Take Control of Your TBR Pile. I was so much fun and that's great cause I managed to read some books I've had on my shelf for a long time.

 

What I read:

- Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare 4/5

- Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare 5/5

- the Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum 4/5

- Contamination by Jamie Thornton 4/5

- Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard 3/5

- Rippler by Cidney Swanson 2/5

- Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi 5/5

 

All my reviews are on this blog and/or my Goodreads page if you want to read my thoughts on these books :)

 

What I watched:

Ok, I'm still watching Degrassi. I finished season 7 and watched seasons 8,9 and 10. I don't like it as much as the first seasons cause I really liked the original characters and they all left the show at this point. Still, it's a lot of fun to watch this show and to relax after a long day. I'm also still watching Shadowhunters, I think there are one or two episodes left in the season, I'm not sure. I'm still hesitant about this show, it is not bad but I feel like they are trying to much to put some humor in it. It's also weird to see the plot so different from the books, I mean it's an adaptation, I'm not saying it should be the same but some things are just too weird. Season 3 of Faking It also started and I watched the first two episodes. This show is really cool, funny and stupid. I like it!

 

What have you read in March? What was your favorite read of the month?

 

Thanks for reading,

 

Line.

Contamination by Jamie Thornton
Contamination (Feast of Weeds) (Volume 2) - Jamie Thornton

#2 Feast of Weeds

 

I love zombie/apocalyptic books but I don't read them really often. I enjoyed the tension in this book, you don't know what's happening and you're scared for the people. I was constantly trying to put myself in their skin to imagine what I would if I was in their place, and it was really difficult to do. 

 

I also like the fact that Corrina is Egyptian and that she gets in trouble because of that. It was easy and not original to use "it's not because some Middle-easterns did something bad that they are all like them" but I like it nonetheless.

 

The characters were interesting, you get to see how they react when confronted with something they don't know that could make them sick. Corrina thinks that being sick does not make you less human and she is right, but would you try to help these people if you knew they could infect you with something unknown? (and knowing that there is no vaccine and that the whole world is burdning down). Well, I don't know a lot of people who would do it.

 

I just did not like the ending because it was too rushed, apart from that it was a great book and I really enjoyed it!

Contamination (Feast of Weeds) (Volume 2) - Jamie Thornton

DNF'ing this for now.  If you enjoy horror, take this as a positive sign & give Jamie Thornton's series a try.  I made the mistake of starting this just before bed and it freaked me out a bit.  I tried to continue it, but each time I do I get a bit freaked out again.  Horror is just not my thing.  

I will give this another try at some point, because I did enjoy the novella that precedes Contamination.

The month of March was way better than February as far as my readings are concerned (in terms of quantity).

- Antéchrista by A. Nothomb (review)

- Nana by Emile Zola (review)

- Germination by Jamie Thornton (review)

I am currently reading Paper Town by John Green. I really love John Green's writing style and the story seems interesting. I do not really have an April TBR, my Easter break begins on Saturday and lasts for two weeks, but I am going to a festival and then I will have to study a lot and go to work. Still, I will have more time to read than during school, so that's good news.

 

What have you read in the month of March? What was your favourite book?

Germination (Feast of Weeds Book 1) - Jamie Thornton

I won this book in a giveaway and I was really excited to read it !

 

It is a really short story and you do not really have time to fully understand what is happening, but it really gives you the need to have the second book (like RIGHT NOW) !

 

It is the story of a group of kids living in the street, trying to survive. But actually, they're trying to do more than survive. They want to live a life they have chosen, they want to build a better place for themselves. Unlike a lot of other survival/post-apocalyptic books, these kids (kind of) chose this way of life. They do not have to live alone because of a plague or an evil power that took over their country. They wanted to escape. Still, there is a virus in the story, a kind of plague, but we do not really know about it yet.

The characters were interesting and can be further developed, I really need more of that story.

 

I only gave it a 2.5/5 because it was way too short (I mean not in the number of pages, but rather in how much of the story is revealed)
