March Book Recap

Hello, hello!!

Welcome back to A Mascara Moment.

I wanted to share the books I read in February/March with you.  This review is a little late, but I kept putting it off to do other blog posts.

I am pretty proud of myself for taking the time/finding the time to read last month.  I am not doing as well in April, but I hope to pick it up this last half of the month now that the holiday is over!

The Woman In Cabin 10 was a quick read for me.  I want to say that it went by because I couldn't put it down, but I think it was because about 1/4 in I started skimming.

This book did not hold my attention.  It was not suspenseful.  I found the main character frustrating and hard to root for.  I mostly just wanted it to be over and I hate giving up on a book so I read to the end.

Behind Closed Doors was a page turner.  The concept is so disturbing and creepy.  I needed to know what happened next.  I don't want to give anything away, but this is a must read.  Not a dull moment in the whole book.

The Silent Wife is beautifully written and creates ambience and emotions with its words.  I think that the story is relatable to anyone who has been in a relationship.  You think you know where the story is going and it flips on you.  The story is slow to pick up, but if you like a character based novel with lots of detail, you will like this one.

13 Reasons Why was a last minute edition to my March list.  The preview for the Netflix show popped up and I wanted to read the book first.  This book was a page turner.  I read it in a few hours.  It is not the best writing in the world, but the story is unique and engrossing.  I read it until the wee hours of the morning, because I literally could not put it down.

I hope you get to do some reading this month!
