My Favorite Reads of March 2019 + April TBR

I thought by reading slump was getting better, but boy was I wrong. I barely pulled through in March. I read 10 books, but most of them were novellas. However, there were still some amazing reads in there! Here’s a quick list of a few of my favorites:

4. Field Notes on Love by Jennifer E. Smith

43601774

Release Date: 03/05/2019
Format: ARC
Rating: 4/5 Stars

This book was so cute! It was the perfect pick-me-up, adorable contemporary to get me reading and fighting back against my slump. I read it in about three hours, and it got me in the mood to read again! (That mood went away pretty fast, but it was nice while it lasted).

3. Shadow Me (Shatter Me #4.5) by Tahereh Mafi

41037734

Release Date: 03/06/2019
Format: eBook Novella
Rating: 5/5 Stars

This got me so excited for Defy Me!!! It’s been a year since I read Restore Me, and I’m so glad I got this before Defy Me‘s release because this eased me back into the world, and re-ignited my excitement. Also, Kenji is the best narrator and my favorite person. I just want to give him a hug.

2. Sherwood by Meagan Spooner

40604737

Release Date: 03/19/2019
Format: ARC
Rating: 4/5 Stars

Sherwood was a fun read, and I really loved that ending! It definitely didn’t help with my reading slump, though. It was a little slow at times and that didn’t pair well with my lack of motivation. That said, I still adored it!

1. Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy #1) by Emily A. Duncan

Release Date: 04/02/2019
Format: ARC
Rating: 5/5 Stars

This book has destroyed me and I’m so grateful for it. I loved every bit of it– especially the amazing characters! Malachiasz is everything I could have dreamed for in a love interest, Nadya is such a great protagonist, and Serefin is so painfully relatable. The poor guy just needs some sleep… and for awful things to stop happening to him and around him. But yeah, please read this book.


April TBR

So, this reading slump seems to be sticking around. While there’s a lot I want to read in April, realistically, I won’t get to most of it. If I only get to a few books, I hope it’s these:

1. Defy The Fates (Constellation #3) by Claudia Gray

39841372

This series is ending and I can’t wait to find out how. Knowing how much I adored the first two books, I think I’ll be able to soar right through this one. Oh god, I jinxed myself, didn’t I?



2. Defy Me (Shatter Me #5) by Tahereh Mafi

34992959

Sticking with that “Defy” theme, this is another continuation of a series I love. As I said above, Shadow Me got me extremely excited for this book. I need to know what happens, and I need more Kenji and Warner in my life.


3. The Storm Crow (The Storm Crow #1) by Kalyn Josephson

38330596

This has been on my TBR for a few months now, but I really don’t want to read it until I’m in the right mood. I know it deals with depression, which can be triggering for me, so I just want to make sure I’m in the best possible place when I read it. It’s so frustrating because I want to read it so bad!

4. Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

36430989

Okay, so I won’t lie. I’m intimidated by this book. From the hype to the reviews I’ve read, this book has a lot going for it. But I’m scared. Supposedly it’s more political, which will probably make it a harder read for someone in a slump, but I really do want to get to it!



And there we go! My favorite March reads, and what I hope I’ll be getting to in April.

What was your favorite read in the past month? And is there a book you’re dying to start in April?
