Monthly Wrap-Up: March, I Figured Out What Books Are

→ March was an amazing month for me. I actually did read (which I’ll craze over below), I won TWO giveaways (I literally never win anything) – one from Beauty and the Bookshelf the other from Stay Bookish Zine,  I had a few lazy times, and one secret project. It was pretty darn good in terms of blogging/store stuff!  (I’m really hoping to share that secret project. It’s already out there in the world, just a hint  😉 )

→ April is going to be – hopefully – full of reading! I’m going to be going to YALLWEST at the end of the month and want to try to read some of the books before going. If any of you will be there, let me know! I’ll be there both Friday and Saturday. I’ve gone 2 years in a row now so I can help you out 🙂

PEOPLE. I. READ. BOOKS. THIS MONTH.

Yes, you read that right. I actually do still remember what books are and I read them in March! I set a goal to read 5 books by the end of the month and I actually fucking did it (pardon my language but I’m so excited). Here they are:

If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo – Review to come

The King Slayer by Virgina Boecker – ? ? ? /5

Snowbirds by Crissa-Jean Chappel – ? ? /5

Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall – ? ? ? ? /5

The Life Fantastic by Liza Ketchum – ? ? ? ? /5

And, as usual, the 2017 Readathon Calendar and Book Blog Memes list are still in the top 10! I’m glad you find these useful. Also, I have a TV and Movie Calendar!

  • A post about Bookstagram
  • A discussion about chronic illness in literature
  • A blogging confessional
  • Hopefully I keep reading and have more reviews!

Most of you have probably already seen this but I’m sharing it anyways:


How was your March? What was your favorite read? Anything exciting to look forward to in April? 

  • Shanti@VirtuallyRead

    I had a pretty busy March, made harder by the fact that I decided not to read fiction. But I’m glad; it really pushed me to read out of my comfort zone. I really loved Crimson Beauty (because audiobooks don’t count) and Sideways on a Scooter. I also did a lot of work on my research project about light pollution and got excited about it snowing one weekend, and realised that I’m never as productive as I want to be, but I do stress bake (today: sponge cake with whipped cream and strawberry sauce) so at least I have sweet things to sustain me.

    • Ohhhh, that’s interesting! I don’t really read non-fiction so that would definitely be a challenge for me! Also, stress baking doesn’t sound too bad actually haha

  • Yay for a good month and some wins!! My favorite reads this month were the 5th and 6th Harry Potter. No idea what took me so long to read them!! Have a great April!

    • YAY Thank you! Hahah I still haven’t moved past the first HP >.<

  • I’m glad March was good for you! It was a good month for me as well, minus a bit of stress regarding my coursework and revision, but my reading was good! Here’s to a good April, too 🙂

    • YAY! We both had good months 🙂 That’s always good. Although, stress isn’t fun. Hopefully April is a little less stressful for you 🙂

  • OMG, Yes you’re reading! My March flew by and I was seriously un-productive. How was Under Rose-Tainted Skies? It’s on my TBR, is it good? My favourite read has to be Miss Pergine’s Home For Peculiar Children. It’s only a 4 stars fro me but I didn’t read too many AMAZING books this month. April is my HOLDIAYS, so no pesky school and that means FREEDOM!

    • haha I AM! Finally! Under Rose-Tainted Skies was really good. It’s one of my favorites of March. AND YAY! FREEDOM!!!!!

  • Yeah, Molly’s reading books! ❤ I think I reading only eight books this month, which is terrible. ? I’m hoping to get my reading mojo back in April.

    I feel like everyone around me is winning giveaways and I’m not! ? I can’t win a giveaway for the life of me.

    And your “A Peek Ahead” gets me so excited! They all sound like such interesting posts! ?

    • hehehe I AM READING. It’s so exciting lol ONLY EIGHT books? Uh…I’ve only read NINE all year so shush.

      I never win giveaways so this week was rare! lol

      & ooohhh yay! That makes me happy 🙂

  • Omg If I Was Your Girl is such a fantastic book and I absolutely love it! Last month I grabbed a copy of Under Rose Tainted Skies so I’m probably going to be reading it very soon and I’m pretty excited for it after having heard some really positive things about it! Thanks for sharing this Molly! Glad to hear you had a good month!
