Each month I write an article that highlights my top five performing articles from the previous month. This month is dominated by book reviews again because…well… that’s all I really have time to post at the moment. I’m writing at about the same rate as I’m reading books currently and don’t have the spare time to write anything unique.

The month of March was one that included a couple of big reviews of some books that I think have a large fan base and some very positive reviews from other people; the likes of Beartown and The Four Winds for example.
These two book reviews feature further down but you may be surprised as to the article that features at the top of this list.
Just a side note: as always, these articles are only articles that I’ve also uploaded in March. I do this as otherwise most of the articles could end up being very similar and these articles may not feature for quite a while.
Anyway, let’s get into the top five articles that you lot viewed throughout March with extracts or summaries from each of the articles:
“March was probably the best reading month for me for a very long time. The Fall, The Ember Blade, Lessons in Chemistry and The Two Towers were all absolutely fantastic reads! The battle would likely be between The Two Towers and Lessons in Chemistry for my two favourite books of the book.”
“Sometimes a book will come along that you’ve heard some good things about but you go into it with a lot of scepticism because you’ve been oversold a book before. However, I can assuredly say that’s not the case with The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah. A story about life, struggles, poverty, survival and motherhood with characters who you root for and fall in love with and written in a way that almost feels poetic makes The Four Winds one of my must-read books I’ll be telling everybody to read!”
“Fredrik Backman has done it again with Beartown. He’s written a fairly odd book about a very unique situation and has dragged me deep into investing in the characters and flipping the pages at a rate of knots to see what’s going to happen next. As with all of Backman’s books, Beartown starts a little slow as Backman builds depth to all of the characters but halfway you’ll be shocked, pulled in and won’t come back up for breath again until the very last page. Beartown continues my love for Fredrik Backman and my insistence that he is one author who everybody should read.”
“Nomad is a great action spy thriller featuring a main character who you can vouch for. The plot isn’t the quickest and can sometimes suffer from a little bit too much exposition but it’s gripping and features some fantastic knowledge and depth that makes you really feel like you’re reading about a true spy story.
Nomad has a fairly monotonous protagonist but some great supporting characters who will keep you guessing as to their loyalties which adds to the engaging story. Nomad doesn’t break ground in the genre but it certainly offers up a really interesting military thriller which makes me want t continue the series at some point.”
“So it looks like most people were interested in finding out the list of books I read in January in February – it’s a common thing. No matter how many book reviews or articles you write, some people just want to know what books you’ve actually read and whether you liked them or not.
I’m glad I managed to finish the CJ Skuse books (as far as they’ve been written anyway) but was disappointed by Child 44 which many people hyped up to be a far better book than it actually turned out to be.”
March was a great month for reading with some of my favourite books I’ve read all year included in my reviews for that month. Considering Beartown was my most recent book review published, it’s interesting to see it so far up the list, it clearly shows how popular a book it is.
And as I said at the start of the article, it is quite surprising to see my five most-read articles from February at the top. It does get confusing because you’ve got the 9 Books I Read in March article in here as that’s posted at the end of March but I’ve also got the Five Most-Read Articles from February in here too as that’s posted at the start of March as it needs the extra day to include the final day of February in it. Make sense?
Anyway, those are the articles from March that you guys viewed the most.
