Happy April Fool’s day! Have you pranked or been pranked today? I’ve done neither, I hate being pranked lol. Anyway, here’s my March wrap-up. I had a pretty good reading month but a not so good blogging month. Damn.
Getting Him Back (ARC)
by K.A. Mitchell
This was a cute New Adult, if a little short. It should have been longer so it could have properly explored the characters and relationships.
I was so surprised to find this in the “read now” section on NetGalley and I just couldn’t resist. I was skeptical, but I ended up really liking it. I had some issues but overall I found it really entertaining and adorable.
The Basic Eight
by Daniel Handler
This is a real interesting book about a teenage girl who commits murder and then rewrites her diary about it. It was a bit slow here and there because of the mundanity of the events she describes, but it goes bananas towards the end and there’s a really good twist there, though I’d managed to guess it (not without several other theories throughout though).
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
by J.K. Rowling
This was a reread. It was as amazing as always, I hope I can get to Prisoner of Azkaban in April.
5/5 stars (no suprise)
Ready Player One
by Ernest Cline
I read this as part of a reading circle on the Norwegian equivalent of Goodreads. It’s been on my tbr since last summer so I was happy to finally get to it. I loved it a lot. So nerdy.
by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
I’m having a hard time reviewing this book. On one hand I can see why this book is amazing. I love the plot, I love the format, and I love the characters. But even so I found myself feeling a little “ugh” here and there, like it was a little slow, especially the first 3/4. The last portion was really good. I’m torn on how I feel about the ending.
“The Wide, Wide Sea” (Chaos Walking #2.5)
by Patrick Ness
I’d forgotten all about this short-story! You easily find and read these online, and I really recommend it if you’ve read, or are reading, the Chaos Walking trilogy. This one gave me a lot of Spackle feels, as if I don’t have enough already.
The Amazing Book is Not on Fire
by Dan Howell & Phil Lester
The only youtuber book I can be bothered with. And these two idiots are also the only youtubers I watch every single video by (well, and also Kingsley. And Lilly Singh) because they’re so naturally funny, they can talk about anything and make it entertaining. So obviously this book is funny too.
Me Before You
by Jojo Moyes
Yay, read-alongs! I’m reading this with Trang from @bookidote. I’ve barely made a dent in it this far, I’m about 17% in, but I’m enjoying it. Hopefully I’ll have time to finish in a week ._.

[mini DNF review in Norwegian]
I had to put this down because it wasn’t holding my attention and it had to go back to the library.
