Book Review: March 2020

The Rise of Magicks by Nora Roberts.  This was the third book in the Chronicles of The One trilogy.  It was so good!  I was immediately engrossed and could hardly put it down.  I had to know how things ended.  I have to say, the first book really sucked me in, the second book was fine (probably my least favorite of the three), and the third sucked me back in again and finished things off so nicely.  I liked all the elements of magic - it definitely was key to the story, but it didn't feel too science fiction-y.  All in all a really good book and another great trilogy by her!

Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren.  I really loved The Unhoneymooners, and as I was trying to break my unlucky streak when it came to books not written by Nora Roberts, I thought I would try another by these authors.  I am so glad I did, because I thought it was really good!  I did think the first part went a little long.  If you read the book jacket, you know what is coming, and I thought that part took just a bit too long to get to.  Had I not read it though, I probably wouldn't have felt that way.  Even though I did feel that way about the first part, I still enjoyed it, and thought it was great chick lit. 

Judgement in Death by J.D. Robb.  As in the past, I am still making my way through this series and enjoying it!

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris.  I had read so many good things about this book, that I finally gave it a try.  And while I have heard about the book quite a bit, I somehow never put two and two together that this was based on a true story.  I didn't realize that until the end, which I wish I had known before, simply because I think I would have had a different appreciation for the story.  Nonetheless, it was a very good book.  The horrors of that time never cease to amaze me, and it's truly inspiring the strength of those that survived.

Linking up with Steph.

  1. Roberts is such a consistent writer. Went through a huge phase of reading tons of her stuff a few years ago. Not so much of the JD Robb but I liked those as well.

  2. I'm looking for lighter reads for the car ride to Disney so I'll have to add Twice in a Blue Moon to my list! I have The Tattooist of Auschwitz on my list already but that's way too heavy for spring break!

  4. My mom read the Tattooist and really liked it. She was telling me a few weeks ago, she saw a special that said if we were to hold a moment of silence for every person that died, we'd need to be silent for 11 years.

  5. I really liked the Tattooist of Auschwitz and want to read the sequel, Cilka's Journey. I've taken a break from Christina Lauren, since after reading so many of their books, I found them to become formulaic.

  6. The Tattooist is on my list to read; I have been reading a lot of historical fiction novels based on true stories lately. I love them but they often are so heavy I need something nice and light in-between.

  7. I haven't started the Chronicles of One trilogy but will now that all 3 books are out. I feel like I'll want to binge series. :D I've always enjoyed her 3-book series and feel like this won't be any different. I'm a huge fan of the In Death series and it only gets better - pinky swear!!
