So March was a good month for buying books. But not for getting through my TBR. It’s funny how those two things never align. I bought four books in March and two I won, ending up with six altogether.
The two books I won were Skysong and Wintersong (all the songs) in Jim @Yayeahyeah‘s Twitter giveaway. Thank you so much to Jim for sending me these two, I’m excited to pick them up!
My big purchases of the month were Children of Blood and Bone and City of Brass. I pre-ordered COBAB a few weeks before its release and was thrilled when it arrived a day early, whereas I bought City of Brass in Waterstones a week after it had come out, but was equally as pleased to have it in my possession. I’m thrilled with both books because they’ve been on my radar for a long time (I actually saw ARCs of City of Brass at YALC last year).
The two penguin classics – Kenko and The Suffragettes – were treats to myself, when they were 80p on Amazon. I read both during the Easter Readathon I hosted, but although I enjoyed them, I don’t think they were particularly exciting or groundbreaking. Children of Blood and Bone on the other hand is exciting to read; I’m currently half way through and lapping up every page.
Which books did you get in March? Did you win any giveaways or receive any proofs?
