What I Read March 2020

by - March 30, 2020

Reading has always been what keeps me sane, so it should come as no surprise that I read a lot during the month of March. Most of it was junk so I'm only sharing the books I would actually recommend. I just started Matchmaking for Beginners and am making steady progress with A Discovery of Witches. The latter has really good reviews and has been turned into a television series by Showtime, but the print is really small and there's a lot of scientific jargon that makes it a little slower going than usual for me. So without further ado, here are the best things I read in March.

The Immortalists
Author: Chloe Benjamin

Four siblings visit a fortune teller who tells each of them the date of their deaths. The story is told chronologically through the points of view of each sibling in the order of their deaths. It took me awhile to get through this one because it was so, so sad. The prevailing theme throughout was love, but more so in a familial sense than relationship.

The Kiss Thief
Author: L.J. Shein

Francesca Rossi is the daughter of a mob boss. When a senator seeking revenge against her father blackmails her father into marriage, Francesca is heartbroken she won't spend her life with her childhood sweetheart. As she and her new husband start to learn more about each other, they come to realize that each has saved the other in some way.

Relative Fortunes
Author: Marlowe Benn

When her half brother challenges their father's will, Julia Kydd agrees to prove her friend's sister's death was murder to keep her half of the inheritance. Set in the 1920s, this story has a Great Gatsby feel to it. Julia's investigation into the suffragette's death sends one family into a tailspin as secrets, each more scandalous than the last, start to unravel. I liked that I wasn't able to figure out 'who done it' before the author revealed it, as well as the fact that several of the characters were based on real-life people.

The True & The Crown (5 book series)
Author: May Dawson
One Kind of Wicked, Two Kinds of Damned, Three Kinds of Lost, Four Kinds of Cursed, Five Kinds of Love

After being exiled for her father's crimes to Earth, Tera has returned to her home of Avalon to attend a magic university. To stay, she must prove her usefulness for the crown and with the help of five men sets out to end what's left of her father's followers. To be honest, this entire series could have easily been just three books, but I do understand why the author chose to end the fourth book the way she did. The final book makes the entire thing worth it, but I can't tell you why without spoiling the plot twist for you.

Court of the Sea Fae Trilogy
Author: C.N. Crawford
Dark King, Fallen King, Rising Queen

Aenor is a disgraced Fae princess hiding amongst humans. When she's captured by King Lyr, she agrees to help him find a fabled blade in exchange for her freedom. Along the way she finds her mate and together they must save the world from a race of deadly, fiery Fae that are trapped beneath the sea. This series was recommended to me by a friend who shares my love of fantasy books.
