I read a lot more this month than I was expecting to. I had a bit of a busy month as I had to review for my AP Testing that happening in the beginning of May. I won’t be very active in the next couple of weeks though I do have some post scheduled so I’m not totally MIA. April was a great reading month. I read nine even though I only thought I would be able to read two. I have become more than a little bit obsessed with historical romances over the past month. There a lot of fun to read and go by so quickly I was able to squeeze in quite a few. So here is my month in books. Read More »
What is the best thing about the beginning of a new month? The plethora of books that will be released!! Despite my massive TBR pile, it’s always fun to look for new releases of books that can be added to that ever-growing stack. April is already shaping up to be a stellar month with all of these new releases. Read More »
March was an average reading month, I read a total of 8 books, which isn’t bad but definitely not as much as I was hoping for. I read quite a range of genres this month, starting from nonfiction to high fantasy to historical romance. I didn’t rate any of my books as less than three stars so I was pretty happy with the quality of the books I read. So without further ado here is my month of March, told in books.

I had a lot of fun reading this book, anything that takes place in Victorian England with fantastical elements is right up my ally. It did take me a little bit to get into this book because I couldn’t remember much of what had happened in the first book, but over the course of the first hundred pages most of the main events came back to me and I was able to enjoy it a lot more.
England, 1883. Still recovering from a devastating loss, Evelyn is determined to use her powers to save other gifted people from those who would harm them. But when her rescue of a young telekinetic girl goes terribly wrong, Evelyn finds herself indebted to a secret society devoted to recruiting and protecting people like Evelyn and her friends.
As she follows the Society’s orders, healing the sick and embarking on perilous recruitment missions, Evelyn sees her problems disappear. Her reputation is repaired, her friends are provided for, and her parents are newly wealthy. She reunites with the dashing Mr. Kent and recovers the reclusive Mr. Braddock (who has much less to brood over now that the Society can help him to control his dangerous power). But Evelyn can’t help fearing the Society is more sinister than it appears…

It took me forever and a day to finish this book but I did it, and man I was just blown away. The last 50 pages of this book had me on the edge of my seat, and for a second there I thought that everything was gonna get messed up but it all works out in the end (yay!) This definitely made my top list of books of 2017 and it’s only February, that’s how good it is. There were so much adventure and romance; lots of time traveling and that last portion had me sucked in and I had to finish it in one sitting I couldn’t tear myself away!
All Etta Spencer wanted was to make her violin debut when she was thrust into a treacherous world where the struggle for power could alter history. After losing the one thing that would have allowed her to protect the Timeline, and the one person worth fighting for, Etta awakens alone in an unknown place and time, exposed to the threat of the two groups who would rather see her dead than succeed. When help arrives, it comes from the last person Etta ever expected—Julian Ironwood, the Grand Master’s heir who has long been presumed dead, and whose dangerous alliance with a man from Etta’s past could put them both at risk.
Meanwhile, Nicholas and Sophia are racing through time in order to locate Etta and the missing astrolabe with Ironwood travelers hot on their trail. They cross paths with a mercenary-for-hire, a cheeky girl named Li Min who quickly develops a flirtation with Sophia. But as the three of them attempt to evade their pursuers, Nicholas soon realizes that one of his companions may have ulterior motives.
As Etta and Nicholas fight to make their way back to one another, from Imperial Russia to the Vatican catacombs, time is rapidly shifting and changing into something unrecognizable… and might just run out on both of them.
If you’ve seen my wrap up then you know that reading according to my TBR didn’t work so well last month, but I am more confident that this will work out this month because I am super excited for a lot of these books and if I don’t read them this month I will be very disappointed in myself. For the sake of space just imagine everything from my January TBR that I didn’t read carries on to this list. So here are the books I NEED to read this month.
