The pick for March was actually the last book I finished reading for the month, the newly published The Girl Who Was Taken by Charlie Donlea. I was fortunate enough to receive a review copy from the publisher unexpectedly and the book completely blew me away with a twist I couldn't predict. I can see this book ending up on my end of year 'best of' list.

Other books I rated 5 starts, in no particular order:
- Rain Dogs by Adrian McKinty - an inventive and character driven locked room mystery. As with the other books in the Sean Duffy series I listened to the audio edition, narrator Gerard Doyle is oh so good.
- This Savage Song by V. E. Schwab - a young adult fantasy/horror about monsters, demons-like creatures, and something resembling zombies. The follow-up is scheduled to be published mid year and I can't wait. I was pleasantly surprised by this book.
- Fellside by M. R. Carey - set predominantly in a women's prison, this book is a vastly different read to The Girl With All The Gifts but is equally as engaging. A must for horror fans.
- Influx by Daniel Suarez - I wrote down a list of 7 books from my tbr pile at the beginning of the year that I wanted to read and Influx was one of those. Not sure why it sat on the shelf for so long but I was very happy that I finally got around to reading it. Their heir to the tech-fi throne.
