Here is a review of my March book reads. March was kind of my “break” month for reading because all of these are short or had a more lightweight storyline. I enjoyed all of these, and I hope you will too!
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
I heard great things about this book on TikTok because of its enemies to lovers trope plotline. I did really enjoy the book overall, but I would not necessarily read for an enemies to lovers trope only storyline (especially if you are someone who is not a huge fantasy person). There are lots of plot twists and intertwining storylines within the book that were really well thought out, and I really liked it.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo
I read this book over spring break at the beach, and I do not think there is a more fitting beach read. The Alchemist is a classic about soul searching and love that I was able to read it. The book is super short, and this year is the 25th anniversary of the book! I would really suggest it if you want something easy and not all consuming, but still very interesting in situations where you have lots of free time like at the beach!
The Wicked King by Holly Black
This is the third book in The Cruel Prince trilogy, and it was also really good! There is always so much happening, and I love reading the character development of the characters in it. You start to relate but also want to correct the characters as they are dealing with their own struggles mortal or immortal.
Confessions of an Imaginary Friend: A Memoir by Jacques Papier by Michelle Cuevas
This book was a reread because there were only a few days left of March, and I wanted to squeeze in reading another book. A short, more kid-oriented audience, this book is very sweet and funny to read. It goes over the life of the imaginary friend, Jacques Papier and his own soul searching.
