March Wrap Up

For me, March was not the best reading month, was always busy at work and at uni and it was hard to squeeze some time for reading in between. But I figured out that I tend to read way more when I have an e-book either on my tablet or on my phone (usually on my phone), as I travel a lot during the week it is easier to pull out your phone and keep reading, sometimes even in classes (don’t tell anyone please!).

I’ve read a total of 7 books and I DNF’d one..

  1. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
  2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  3. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  4. Stardust by Neil Gaiman (and even watched a movie)
  5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
  6. Kill School: Slice by Karen Carr
  7. Runes by Ednah Walters

Haruki Murakami just wasn’t for me. His short stories told me nothing and it was too boring to continue reading. I am not completely giving up on his writing but I might wait until a more appropriate set of mind before giving him another  chance.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and Kill School by Karen Carr were by far my most favorite books this month. Karen Carr is already working on a sequel and I cannot wait for the next book!

Hope this month brought you some very good reads as well. I would love to know what you’ve read last month and what you are currently reading. Let me know in the comments below.

Book: Kill School:Slice
Author: Karen Carr

Year: 2016
Rating: ★★★★★ / 5

A dystopian Young Adult novel full of surprises and new concepts – that is what Kill School: Slice was for me, it is difficult to find words to describe and conclude what I felt while reading it. So let’s start with a small overview of the plot.

In this world no-one expects their 16th birthday, on the contrary it is a very dreadful day everyone is afraid of. “What colour will I get” is the only questions children are concerned about, “Will I get a green emerald or a blue sapphire or maybe, for the worst of cases, Will I receive red ruby?”

This futuristic society, where human DNA was modified to the point that it allowed people to live for a very long time without worrying about dying from illness or old age, which ultimately gave every person an order, a permission to kill to control the population.

Kill to live. A life for a life.
