Monthly Motif March Check-In [Royalty, Kingdoms, Empires, Governments]

Welcome to another round of the Monthly Motif Reading Challenge. I know this months theme might seem a bit tricky, but really, you can take this in so many different ways. Have you been wanting to read Michelle Obama’s new book? It counts this month. Or how about The Red Queen, Victoria Aveyard, for example, which has been getting rave reviews for the last few years? Seriously, lots and lots of options this month! 

Royalty, Kingdoms, Empires, Governments

“Read a book in which the character is involved in a ruling or governing body in some way.”

I’ve been wanting to read A Court of Thorn and Roses, Sarah J. Maas series for a couple of years now. This seems like the perfect opportunity. These books had been hyped up so much that I kind of held off on them. I wanted to see if people really loved the full series before I committed to it.

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.


This theme came me the perfect opportunity to pick up a long-forgotten series, and continue with book 2 in the Throne of Glass series, Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.

Crown of Midnight

From the Throne of Glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.

      @Lucie – What kinds of books do you like to read? One of my favorite books / series of all time books – Mistress of Rome, Kate Quinn (The Empress of Rome series) – would be great for this topic.

      Also – Game of Thrones.

        Thank you Tanya. Most of the time I prefer reading nordic noir, detective stories and thrillers. I feel old for fantasy and young adult, dont know why. So historical fiction would be nice or if there is any contemporary book for this topic, that would be great.

    • Hey Lucie. Did you find a book for this month yet? If not, check out these lists:
