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! I was once again lucky with my reading choices in March and managed to enjoy the majority. There were a few that stood out above the rest, but two of these titles managed to blow me away completely. One was a reread so I’m not counting it, so there was one clear winner left in March… Can you guess which title? Without further delay, March’s favorite is… *drumroll*

The Mountain In My Shoe by Louise Beech!! I know I’m biased when it comes to her work and I seem to love anything she writes, but this was yet another absolutely fantastic story that I cannot recommend enough.

“Speechless, book hangover, unable to put a proper sentence on paper… Oh yes, the Beech effect has struck again!”

The Mountain In My Shoe is without doubt another emotional and simply stunning story. It focuses on the care system, unhappy homes and marital problems, but also gives us a note of hope and the possibility of a brighter future.”

There were two titles with a nearly perfect rating last month; both YA contemporaries with a prison element, and both without doubt recommended.

What I said in my review:

“Books completely written in verse can go both ways for me, but it definitely worked very well here. Moonrise is such a heartfelt and heartbreaking story with such a powerful message to boot… ”

“Make sure to have a box of tissues at hand just to be safe! Moonrise turned out to be a very powerful, emotional and tragic read, and the fact that it’s completely written in verse only enhanced its impact for me.”

What I said in my review:

“I had really high expectations for this sequel, Dear Justyce by no means disappoints. True, I did think the first book was slightly stronger still, but has a whole it’s without doubt a powerful sequel and one that once again shines a light on race, discrimination and the failure of the justice system.”

“My heart went out to the different characters in play, and it’s truly a disgrace things like this still happen even today… Dear Justyce is a must-read for young and old and a real eye opener.”
