Books I Read in March & April 2023 | Book Reviews

March and April 2023 were really slow reading months for me, so I’ve combined the two months into one reading wrap-up.

In March, I  only managed to read five books and I usually read about 7-8 books per month. But I won’t punish myself as I was incredibly busy and I was reading submissions on top of my reading, so I did still read a lot. I just didn’t finish many.

In April 2023 I managed to read 6 books. So I slightly redeemed myself and my reading challenge on Goodreads.

What I read in March 2023:

You Do You by Charlotte Greedy

The first book I read in March was an audiobook of You Do You by Charlotte Greedy. A self-help book from an LGBTQIA+ influencer who’s had a tough life. It was interesting, though I’ve never heard of Charlotte Greedy before. I would recommend if you’re needing a pick-me-up or follow her and her family on Instagram.

Freddie Mercury: Little People, Big Dreams by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara

If you’re after a decent children’s book that highlights the successes of historical and beloved figures then I highly recommend you have a look at this series. I wish I had been alive when Freddie Mercury was alive, he was such an incredible man.

The Movie Lover’s Guide to London by Charlotte Booth

I love a good movie guide but sadly this one didn’t hit the mark for me. It was all copy-and-paste facts that were literally repeated about 5-10 times throughout the book. Not one I’d recommend.

The Foundling by Stacey Halls

I’m very lucky to be working on Stacey’s books at Bonnier Books UK and I was re-familiarising myself with her books. I loved the audiobook production of The Foundling, the casting was spot-on and the story – as ever with Stacey – was brilliant and immersive.

Horrible Histories: Stratford-Upon-Avon by Terry Deary

When I was in Straford-Upon-Avon for a long weekend I popped into an Oxfam Bookshop and found this Horrible Histories book about the area. I read it when I got to the hotel and it was really insightful and fun.

In April I began my annual re-read of the Harry Potter series. I’ve re-read the series every year since I was 15 years old.

What I read in April 2023:

Love from the Pink Palace by Jill Nalder

I read this hard-hitting non-fiction book about the AIDs crisis in the UK. These are the real-life events and stories from Jill Nalder that inspired the Channel 4 drama and character of Jill in It’s a Sin. It’s a really touching story about friendship and love, even in the midst of an awful crisis.

Harry Potter 1-5 by J.K. Rowling

So far, in April, I’ve read the first five books in the Harry Potter series. I’ll likely finish Books 6-7 in May, on top of my 30 Books in 30 Day challenge.
