January - March Wrap Up
Updated: Jul 24
Did I finish all the 12 books on my three-month TBR? Nope, but at least I'd finished two books in two months. I finished Black Butler in January and A Good Girl's Guide to Murder in February. I'm very happy to be able to finish at least one book a month with all the assignments I have and becoming stressed out, but here is my review of the two books.
Black Butler Vol. 1 by Yana Toboso
I have watched and re-watched this show so many times I love everything about this book and show. I rated this book 10/10 stars. I've decided to change my rating this year. I am hoping to be able to get the rest of the volumes in this series and also to re-watch the show because why not, I love anime and I love Sebastian with all my heart and I would like for him to become my butler, even if I have to sell my soul to him.
He is one of hell of a butler, you know.
If you haven't heard of this anime series before, it's about this a 12-year-old orphan named Ciel Phantomhive in Victorian London who ignores all the possible dangers and searches for his parents' killers with the help of a demonic butler named Sebastian.
I got this book as a birthday gift back in 2013-2014, I believe and I still can't believe it took me 7 years to finish this volume, but I'm glad I did cause I'm in the process of seeing if I can get the rest in the manga.

A Good Girl's Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
I loved every minute of this book so much! I was on the edge of my seat! I would love for this to be a limited series of a show or a movie, I would watch either, to be honest. My rating was 10/10.
If you haven't heard of this book, it's about a senior in high school named Pippa Fitz-Amobi decides to reexamine the close case of Andie Bell, who was murdered by her boyfriend, Sal Singh, who then kills himself. Then after five years later, Pip is a senior and decides last minute to change the topic of her capstone project since the tragedy of the murder/suicide still haunts the town of Fairview.
What I liked about this book it is resolving a closed case it reminds me of the show called cold cases and I really liked small-town murder cases too cause there is always a who done it. This book will make you feel heartbreak, anger, a bunch of what the f's, and adventure/mysteries.
I did listen to the audiobook while reading and there's different voice actors in the book, which I was pleasantly surprised because I honesty thought it would just be the narrator doing all the voices while Pip was interviewing people.
I did found out that there's two more books in the series and I'll definitely spend more money on books like these. There's Good Girl, Bad Blood. Hopefully I'll be able to buy it, but for right now, it's going on my TBR list.
Here's the link for the Libro.fm audiobook and Amazon, if you're looking to buy it. I wasn't able to get the audiobook from Libro.fm, I got it through Audible, I highly recommend Libro.fm than Audible to be honest.
I did make an April - June TBR, I only have at least 5-6 books on this list because I thought I would finish 12 books in three months along with dealing with work and school and trying to pass all my classes, it wasn't happening, so I'm really hoping to finish at least 3 books in the three months.
