Monthly Wrap Up: March

mmwu

Um, how is March over already? I can’t believe it’s April. My birthday is in 12 days and I’m so not ready to get a year older. I’m going to be closer to 30 than 20 and I am having a serious quarter life crisis. Send help!

I AM ALSO OFFICIALLY FREAKING OUT BECAUSE

WHAT THE HECK YOU GUYSΒ IM SO OVERWHELMED RIGHT NOW

Thank you all so, so, so much for joining me on this new adventure of blogging. I honestly thought I’d just be speaking into the void and whilst that would have still been okay having people to interact with has made this experience even more wonderful.

BOOKSΒ I BOUGHT

I’m just gonna include physicals, because we’ll be here all day if I listed all the digital copies.

Somebody stop me from spending money

Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld // Illuminae by Aime Kaufman & Jay Kristoff // Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman // Iron Trial by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare // Passenger by Alexandra Bracken // My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalestier // Firstlife by Gena Showalter // The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks // The Sidekicks by Will Kostakis // The Rule of Thoughts by James Dashner // Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

My bank account did definitely not appreciate my reading slump ending.

BOOKSΒ I READ/REVIEWED

This was officially my first month getting back into reading after a year long slump and I am quite proud of what I managed to accomplish! Given the majority of the books I read where short stories or graphic novels, but STILL. Considering my non existent attention span, I think I did alright πŸ˜‰ I amΒ hoping to do even better in April and read more full length books.

Total books read: 20

You know the drill. Clicking on a cover = Goodreads.

  5. Congrats on 100 followers and also happy early birthday! You had a great month for reading!! I’m not going to lie, I’m jealous you hauled Illuminae! I’ve been wanting to buy that ever since I read it but I keep buying books I haven’t read yet instead! AH! I’m sure I’ll cave in sooner rather than later because that book is mesmerizing. It must be mine, haha! I also have been super interested in checking out Through the Woods! It looks so amazing!

    1. I don’t think I’ve ever been called a magical wizard before, what a compliment! A lot were graphic novels and I can just read those super quickly. Also I don’t need to worry about school things so that’s definitely a huge plus haha. I love The Darkest Minds series so much!!! I’m so sad it’s over, but it had such a perfect ending.
