Best Of… March 2018 @StMartinsPress @bookouture

I had originally decided to include this new feature in my monthly wrap ups, but I just felt there were too many facts squeezed into one little post and the whole purpose of putting my favorite reads in the spotlight was lost. So this is me giving those favorites their well deserved extra attention! In March, there was no new 5 star read, but I had a whopping seven! titles with an almost perfect rating! I’m going to be honest here and I was really close to cheating and just name all of them my favorite, but in the end I decided not to take the easy way out. So without further delay, March 2018’s favorite was… *drumroll*

The Sun Does Shine by Anthony Hinton!! I was a really tough call, but after careful consideration it was this moving memoir that stood a little out over the rest of the titles.

What I said in my review:

“Powerful, infuriating, heartbreaking and with a dose of hope and forgiveness… The Sun Does Shine is one of the best true crime memoirs I have read to this date, and his story will stay with me for a long time.”

“The pure injustice of it all makes you want to scream, but both his case and experience is very well documented in this memoir and makes for a painful, but inspiring, intriguing and very powerful read. I’m truly impressed by his views on life and his ability to be able to forgive the unforgivable.”

Six other titles were given a 4,5 star rating last month, and it simply has been extremely hard to bring down that number further. In the end, I felt four titles stood out a tiny bit above the other two. The two titles not mentioned are still excellent reads and deserve all the praise! But this post is getting too long as it is, so I had to make tough choices… And with no further delay, honorable mentions go to the following four titles:

What I said in my review:

The Child Next Door is psychological thriller at its best. Just the right amount of tension, a rich plot and a healthy dose of twists and false leads, but also well rounded characters and a pace that is just right.”

“I was left staring open-mouthed at the last page because I just couldn’t believe what I just read.”
