Books: The March Edit

Welcome back to another edition of 'what has Laura been reading?' but with a new and better title. I have had so many questions about when the next edition of this is coming, so it is here! 
I have been quite pleasantly surprised by the amount of people who have been asking me where my next edition of this list is. You all seem to be really enjoying finding out what I have read each month. I am also so glad to hear that so many of you have been enjoying my suggestions! Please do let me know what you think of the books I've been reading, if you've read it before or after my post, I'd love to hear what you think! 
Any who, let's get onto my March reads. March was an interesting month with books. I didn't read as many books as I would have liked. I didn't enjoy a number of the books I read and then I spent a lot of time reading a 'series' (I put series in italics because they aren't necessarily a series in the way you'd always understand a series, but I'll explain later).

The Perfect Stranger // Megan Miranda

You might remember that I read All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda earlier on this year and absolutely loved it. Well I couldn't resist reading Miranda's latest book, The Perfect Stranger. It is a great read if you enjoy thrillers and mysteries! The Perfect Stranger follows the story of Leah Stevens who looks like she is being framed for a murder. All the while, her roommate Emmy has disappeared. Megan Miranda writes so well that you are left wondering if Emmy really existed at all, or was she just a figment of Leah’s mind?

I do have to say this book wasn’t as good as All The Missing girls and the end left me a little confused (I had to re read the last 100 pages or so to try and get my head around the ending) but it was a great read. 

Ten Tiny Breaths // K.A Tucker

What started out seeming like a simple romantic novel about a girl trying to escape her dark past had me hooked from the first moment. Four years earlier Kacey lost her parents, boyfriend and best friend in a car accident involving a drunk teenage driver. Now she is just trying to move on and care for her younger sister Livie. The handsome man next door seems to be convincing her to relive every second though. Is it worth it?

Loved loved loved this book! The plot twist towards the end...oh my god! So much so that I went on to read the rest of the series. Now, the series don't necessarily relate to this story but are stories from other people involved in the lives of Kacey and Livie. There is In Her Wake, which tells the original story from Cole's side (READ THIS AFTER TEN TINY BREATHS NOT BEFORE!), then there is One Tiny Lie, Four Seconds To Lose and Five Ways To Fall. The only one that I am yet to read is Five Ways to Fall, but it is on my TBR next list! K.A Tucker has a really lovely way of writing and I got so invested in each of these stories that I couldn't put the books down. 

Emma In The Night

Emma In The Night // Wendy Walker

Another brilliant book! I loved it.

When Emma and Cass disappear, there is a full on investigation to find them. With police unable to find anything, it is all just rumours and conspiracies. Three years later, Cass returns. She has one detailed and interesting story to tell, but is her story as true as it seems?

Beautifully written, keeping you guessing the whole time. While I had a feeling something was off, I had no idea that the ending would happen. Cannot recommend this book enough!

The Girl in 6E // Alessandra Torre

I haven't yet finished this book, so technically I shouldn't include this one in this post, but I am so close and I have been enjoying it so much that I couldn't not include. A cross between erotic fiction (somewhat) and a thriller. The story focuses on Jessica, who has locked herself in apartment number 6E, so she won't and cannot act upon her murderous tendencies. She spends her days as a sex cam worker, which gives her all the money should could need. 

One day she discovers that a little girl named Annie goes missing. Why does this event make her up and leave her apartment? Well you will have to read it to find out!

It's a slightly shorter list then usual, but I really enjoyed these books and the Ten Tiny Breaths. I have a number of library books that I need to get through soon so I am hoping that April might be a busier reading month. What did you read this month? I would love to hear what books you have been loving this month! xx
