March in Books

Hello my dudes! Here we are again, ready to talk about the books I read last month. I love reading, and this month I got through some serious pages. Let’s get right into it.

#futureboards by Sarah Centrella

Alright, I’m going to be totally honest with y’all: I hate self-help books. But a couple months back, my mum came to Maryland to help me out in a really tough time. She bought two books while she was here, and this was one of them; her goal was for her to read one while I read the other, and then for us to switch. She read this first, then gave it to me to read. And guess what? I freaking loved this. I did the homework in the book, and started manifesting. While I know this book isn’t for everyone, I really enjoyed it, and am loving what my #futureboard looks like. Again, it’s not for everyone, but if it interests you, grab a copy here.

The Antidote by Shelley Sackier

This is a book that I picked up while at a book chat in West Virginia. Sackier was the only author there that I didn’t know (V.E. Schwab and MK England were the other guests). I picked it up because I wanted to support authors coming to small free events. Overall, it was okay. While I enjoyed the story, it took over 100 pages to really get to it. I was bummed that the ending felt rushed (20 pages from the ending I expected a sequel). For the most part, I did enjoy the book, though. Check it out here!

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James

Dang, this book. This is another that I thought I was going to dislike, but I ended up devouring it. I wanted nothing more than to read it while I was doing everything other than reading. It’s about a girl who was born in space and ended up being the only one to command the ship that she was born on. I felt a lot of ways about this book, and you can check out my full review to read about all of them. If you’re ready to read the book yourself, grab a copy here.

Girl Town by Carolyn Novak

I read the first couple stories in this book sometime last year, and never finished it. So when I saw that this was still in my massive book stack, I knew I should stop putting it off. Girl Town is a book of graphic stories of womanhood in several forms. It’s beautiful, and I can’t say any more that I love it. Get a copy for yourself here!

Kid Gloves by Lucy Knisley

I really adore Lucy Knisley. An ex introduced me to her work, and now I get so excited when a new book of hers comes out. Since I’m not buying books, I hadn’t picked up Kid Gloves; my friend brought her copy over for me to read. I loved reading Kid Gloves; it’s the story of her pregnancy with Pal, her son. This graphic memoir is full of research and real life experiences, that absolutely blew me away.

The most important thing that I got from it, however, was that Knisley writes about how it’s totally cool if kids aren’t for you. As someone who has never wanted kids (I’d be a killer aunt), it was very reassuring to read someone else saying “only do what you want.” I recommend the heck out of this book, grab a copy here.

Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules by Tony Cliff

This is the third graphic novel in a series, but I haven’t read the others. I had no issue jumping into the story, and loved every dang minute of reading it. It’s an adventure book, following Delilah Dirk. Dirk is a powerful and stubborn young woman,w ho seems unafraid of dangers. It’s phenomenal to read her stories, and I’m glad to have experienced a part of her story. While I borrowed this book from a friend, you can grab yourself a copy of Delilah Dirk’s story here.

I don’t know about y’all, but this quarantine has been making reading tough for me. Usually I tear through books (check out my January reads), but my concentration is shot from having more limited options right now. If you have any tips for how to beat a reading slump, please leave them in the comments below!
