What I read in March

My blog has rather took a back seat, during these unprecedented times. I just haven't really had much to say, but today I thought I would share what I have been reading lately, as I'm sure many of us have time on our hands or just need escapism of the kind you can only get from being absorbed in a good story.

What I read in March

So here's what I read in March

In the Dark - Cara Hunter ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

If you read February's what I read post, you will know that I am obsessed with Cara Hunter's DCI fawley series. If you love detective crime thrillers you have to read these books. Cara just immerses the reader right into the investigation. 

Do you know what they are hiding in the house next door?

A woman and child are found locked in a basement room, barely alive. No one knows who they are - the woman can't speak, and there a no missing persons reports that match their profile.

This book has so many twists and turns, things are not what they seem, it just sucks you in and you have to find out more.

Feminists don't wear pink ( and other lies ) - Scarlett Curtis ⭐⭐⭐

My first non fiction book of the year, I bought the kindle edition of this when it was on offer for 99p, as I felt like it was something that as a woman I should read. The book is a series of essays written by women from across the world, on their take on feminism and why it's important to women everywhere from every background.

I found this book informative and I learnt a lot about causes I hadn't realised existed, and how they impact on lives across the world.

The Sisters of Auschwitz - Roxane Van Iperen ⭐⭐⭐⭐

As the title indicates this is not an easy read, and certainly not light hearted escapism, but if you are interested in historical novels, especially those written about the atrocities of WW2 you will find this an interesting read.

This is the story of real life sisters, of the Brilleslijper family, a Jewish family from Amsterdam, who go into hiding to avoid the rounding up of Jews from across Europe. They work for the resistance in a bid to help other Jews in Holland, forging papers, and even hiding whole families. The seem to be one step of Nazi's, well for a while at least.  

Million love songs - Carole Matthews ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Now if you are looking for escapism in the form of good old fashioned chick lit, this could be the book for you.

Ruby Brown is newly single after divorcing her cheating ex, she moves house and changes jobs. She's looking for a fresh start and a bit of fun, her best friend Charlie is obsessed with Take That and tries to convince Ruby she doesn't need a man, that admiring Gary from afar is enough, but it's not for Ruby. 

After no action for a while like buses two men arrive in Ruby's life at once, both unsuitable in very different ways. Mason "shagger" Soames her playboy boss who is attempting to seduce Ruby, and despite his reputation Ruby is drawn to him. And Joe Edwards her hot diving teacher, with a complicated family set up, and seemingly no time for love.  

Pure escapism for chick lit lovers. 

All these books were downloaded from Amazon's kindle store, when on offer, you can sometimes get some great books for under a pound.
