What I Read: March 19-April 9

The Hellions of Halstead Hall series by Sabrina Jeffries: I read all five books in this series right in a row, and it was an EXPERIENCE (more details here). Needless to say, I had a lot of fun with it, and I’ll be more open to reading complete series back-to-back in the future.

Keyed Up by Sarah Estep: Easily the best book I read in March! A fun romantic comedy with the most lovable cast of characters. PLUS, it’s going to be a series and I CAN’T WAIT. Keyed up is available May 4. Thank you Sarah for the eARC!

Flow (Grip Trilogy #1) by Kennedy Ryan: This was…fine? A prequel to a two-book series about Marlon and Bristol’s relationship. There wasn’t anything wrong with this, it just wasn’t a memorable read for me.

Beauty and the Baller (Strangers in Love #1) by Ilsa Madden-Mills: I loved parts of this and was a bit “meh” on some other parts, but overall it was a decent enough read (it kept me interested while on a few flights, so that’s a plus).

Throttled (Dirty Air #1) by Lauren Asher: Formula 1 is a thrilling sport, but this book captured absolutely none of that excitement. The characters felt immature (I really need to take my own advice and avoid books with characters who are fresh out of college) and the plot was bland. Watch Drive to Survive instead for your motorsport fix.

Coronation Year by Jennifer Robson: A more character-driven historical fiction, with QEII’s coronation as a grounding element. I enjoyed the perspective of each character (I particularly liked Jamie) and although the main conflict felt a bit pushed to the background (until the last few chapters), this was a quick, atmospheric read. It’s a shame that the Blue Lion is purely fictional! Thank you UpLit Reads!
