Now that April has arrived it’s time to take a moment and look back at what books I read in March. March was quite the interesting month but despite so many things happening and the uncertainty that loomed with each day, I did manage to get a decent amount read. With each month that passes and each book read, I am that much closer to tackling my huge TBR. This March 2020 reading wrap-up covers the books that I read this month and my thoughts on them.

March 2020 reading wrap-up
I really enjoyed these four volumes of Rin-ne. The characters are starting to get more development and the storyline is growing well. I can’t go into a lot of details but I will say that I see this series becoming one of my favorites by the time I’m done with it. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with anything written by Takahashi.
If you are familiar with the anime, then these two volumes cover the first half of the second season. These books are fairly different from the previous volumes since the game which Kirito dives into is vastly different from Sword Art Online and ALfheim. Because of this, it really pushes Kirito’s character to adapt to this new world in ways he never has before. I really enjoyed reading these two as it gives an even better look into who Kirito is along with the newest addition of Shino.
This first book chronologically in the Star Wars Legends series (previously called Expanded Universe). Set approximately 25,000 years before A New Hope, this story focuses on a pair of siblings on Tython who are part of the Je’daii Order. I really wanted to like this book, after all, it had the potential to show us what the Jedi was like way back when, but instead, this story was bogged down by a sibling conflict and far too many flashbacks and dreams than necessary. One thing I really didn’t enjoy was the switching of prose, with the main story being in third person past tense and the dreams and flashbacks being in third person present tense. I felt those switches interrupted the flow of the story too much and most of them didn’t add enough to the main story to be worth it.
