MARCH ROUNDUP

Hello,

March was another crazy month but I was really glad that I was able to manage it, somehow. I had a few sleepless nights but I believe that it was all worth it (well for most of the part, really).

[TOP TEN TUESDAY] Books I Recently Added to my Goodreads TBR List

This Week's Topic: Books you recently added to your To-Be-Read List.

I don't always add books I want to read to my TBR. Sometimes I just keep them in mind. When I see a book, I keep them in mind especially if they're upcoming releases or incredibly popular. I just add books when I buy them or when I get them for review or when I'm quite sure I'll forget them (if they're not very popular).

SOOOO here're the ten books I recently added on my Goodreads TBR :)

Girl Underwater by Claire Kells. I literally just added this a few hours ago after reading a review :) Survival and Adveture.
The Vanishing Girl by Laura Thalassa. I got this as well as its sequel, The Decaying Empire for review. I think this is something about teleporting,
Forsaken by Kristen Day. Saw a book blitz (or something) of the final book. Saw that this was for free. SO why not try?
Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman. Historical Fiction about Alexander the Great. It was an insta-add to me :) This will be on one of my Waiting on Wednesday posts for sure...
Dreamscape: Saving Alex by Kirstin Pulioff. I have this for review. I think this is the one about being inside a game.

[BOOK BLITZ] Bone Dry

Series: Soul Shamans #1
Author: Cady Vance
Genre: young adult, fantasy, witches, supernatural
Publisher: Sagan Press
Published: February 3, 2015
Purchase: Amazon


Sometimes it isn't as easy as choosing right or wrong. 
Sixteen-year-old Holly Bennett is a comic book nerd, a con artist, and a shaman. Most days Holly wishes she could trade in her power of spirit communication for something more useful--like fireballs or Wolverine claws. She knows spirits aren't exactly Casper the Friendly Ghosts. They're dangerous beings from Lower World who snack on human life, and messing with the magic from their world is an express ticket to big trouble. But when a shaman sticks her mom's mind between their world and ours, Holly becomes the unexpected breadwinner in the family. She uses her burgeoning shaman powers to set up fake hauntings and "banish" the so-called ghosts from her wealthy classmates' bedrooms. For a fee, of course. 
When actual spirits start manifesting, Holly discovers that other shamans have come to town, summoning life-sucking spirits for their own ends. And the newcomers may just hold the clue Holly's been looking for--the one that can release her mom's mind from its Lower World prison. With the help of both a cute web comic artist and her partner-in-con, Holly plots to take them down, throwing her into a whirlwind of speedboat getaways, breaking and entering, and astral projections into the spirit world. And as her mom's mind slips further away, Holly has to fight to save her, and the rest of the town, before they get sucked into Lower World permanently.

Hello,

March was really crazy but I'm really glad that I was able to somehow manage it. I just spent a whole week lazing at home - reading Red Rising, Delayed Death, and Material Girls. I was also busying myself with watching Ace of Diamond, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, and Barakamon. Check out my review of Gekkan Shoujo if you haven't done so. It was a pretty good anime :)

Series: Temptation in Florence #1
Author:
 Beate Boeker
Genre:
 adult, mystery, cozy mystery, romance
Published:
 October 23, 2013 (first published December 1, 2012) 
Purchase:
 Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Smashwords

Delayed Death is Book #1 in the Temptation in Florence Series, a cozy murder mystery romance series with a strong dose of humor and romance. 
The title of the series comes from the lingerie store that the protagonist, Carlina, owns and runs, Temptation, on one of Florence, Italy's, premier shopping streets. The Temptation in Florence Series follows the life, adventures and loves of Italian-American Carlina, and of her extended eccentric Italian family, many of whom live in apartments in the same building in central Florence. 
The family's eccentric members and their whims and wishes are a never-ending source of amusement for Carlina. While often treated like the family's Cinderella, Carlina is also a sexy, saucy, funny thirty-two-year-old woman.
When a crisis occurs, right at the beginning of Delayed Death, and Carlina gives in to her domineering cousin's wishes, Carlina sets herself on a collision course with police Commissario Stefano Garini.
