Hello everyone, and welcome back to The Bookworm’s Fantasy! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I’m posting my Monthly Reads for March 2021. I read 3 books during March, which isn’t great – it’s been a busy time! So, keep reading to discover which books I read last month…
You Love Me (You #3) by Caroline Kepnes.
Joe Goldberg is back. And he’s going to start a family – even if it kills him.
Joe Goldberg is done with cities, done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now, he’s saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cosy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe.
He gets a job at the local library – he does know a thing or two about books – and that’s where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian. Joe won’t meddle, he will not obsess. He’ll win her the old fashioned way . . . by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they’ll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town.
The trouble is . . . Mary Kay already has a life. She’s a mother. She’s a friend. She’s . . . busy.
True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. He’s ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kay will do the right thing and make room for him.

I won’t go into too much detail now as I’ve already reviewed this book in full – you can read my full review here. I really enjoyed reading the latest instalment to Kepnes’ critically acclaimed ‘You’ series. Joe Goldberg is as menacing and charming as usual, and he encounters lots of new challenges and changes in this most recent chapter of his life. If you’re a fan of the ‘You’ series on Netflix, you must read this latest addition!
Look What You Made Me Do by Nikki Smith.
Two people can keep a secret . . . if one of them is dead.
Sisters Jo and Caroline are used to hiding things from each other. They’ve never been close – taking it in turns to feel on the outside of their family unit, playing an endless game of favourites.
Jo envies Caroline’s life – things have always come so easy to her. Then a family inheritance falls entirely to Jo, and suddenly now Caroline wants what Jo has. Needs it, even.
But just how far will she go to get it?

I won’t say too much about this book now as I’ll be reviewing it in full soon – keep your eyes peeled for that! I didn’t really have any expectations going into this, but I ended up really really loving this book. The characters were fantastically written, the plot was intriguing and surprising, and there was plenty of mystery and suspense throughout. My only criticism is that I wasn’t 100% sold on the ending – but other than that, this was a sensational read that I highly recommend to you all.
The Chalet by Catherine Cooper.
Four friends. One luxury getaway. The perfect murder.
French Alps, 1998
Two young men ski into a blizzard… but only one returns.
20 years later
Four people connected to the missing man find themselves in that same resort. Each has a secret. Two may have blood on their hands. One is a killer-in-waiting.
Someone knows what really happened that day.
And somebody will pay.
I’ll 100% be reviewing this book in full soon, so keep your eyes out for that! Just WOW. There are no words to describe this book. I absolutely loved every single second of this compelling, addictive psychological thriller. The setting and characters were so well written – I actually felt like I was skiing on the Alps along with them. There are so many twists and turns in this book, it made my head spin (in a good way)! I honestly couldn’t fault this book if I tried. I urge you all to go out and buy it – I promise you won’t regret it!
Happy reading 🙂
