Hey guys! You’re definitely reading it right. I’m doing my January to March wrap-up just now. I wanted to do an April wrap-up because I read a lot of books last April but I’ll just do a quick wrap-up for the past three months.
January to March is not a good reading month for me. I only completed 4 books in a span of three months. And that, my friends, is the reason why I haven’t posted any wrap-up lately.
One out of all the four books that I finished in the first quarter of the year, I started way back in December. But I’m not that disappointed with myself because I decided to power-through The Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes Volume 1. I finally finished it! Took me two years to finally finish the whole book instead of reading one short story at a time.
Anyway, without further ado, here are all the books that I finished reading in January, February and March:
Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban (Illustrated Edition) by J.K. Rowling
Rating: 5 out of 5
Thoughts: This is the first time that I read this book and I read this in the illustrated edition! I love every bit of it. So far, it is my favorite book from the Harry Potter series and I have yet to continue on with the whole series.
Two Days Gone by Randall Silvis
Rating: 4.75 out of 5
Thoughts: I love this book. This reminds me why I love reading mystery/thriller novels. This book is probably the reason why I decided to read and finish the Volume 1 of The Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Rate: 4 out of 5
Thoughts: This is probably my favorite classics of all time. The characters were so annoying but there is something about the story that really stuck to me. I contemplated things after reading this. I have yet to watched the movie adaptation! (Leonardo DiCaprio <3)
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
Rate: 4.25 out of 5
Thoughts: I think the author captures the mystery/thriller aspect of the story. Well… I’m not that convinced with how the story wraps up. There is a motive, and the killer could really do such thing given his/her actions. However, the relation between the killer and Megan, it’s told in less than 100 pages, a back story although it coincides with the dates in their stories. Still, I really like this book.
And that my friends, are all the books that I read in the first quarter of the year. I’ll be back with my April wrap-up soon-ish.
Till next time!
