March Wrap-Up

I honestly didn't have much of a plan for March when it came to my TBR. I knew I had a handful of books I wanted to read but besides that I kind of just read whatever I requested at my library or was motivated to pick up. It was definitely a more relaxing month and for a good week I read almost nothing, which worried me that I was getting into a reading slump (especially since this time last year I got into a bad one). I think the Read-O-Rama burned me out before I really even got to participate because of my lack of preparation which made me not want to read. I somehow pushed through and read four books in the final week of the month. I think I just requested the right books at the right time.

Book Reviews 
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
ApocalyptiGirl by Andrew MacLean
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall by Bill Willingham
Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World edited by Kelly Jensen
Liefdom by Jesse Teller
The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman
Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall
The Education of Margot Sanchez by Lilliam Rivera
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz

DNF Books 
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

This was the third time I tried getting into Artemis Fowl. I tried reading it for Read-O-Rama but unfortunately it fell short and I couldn't get more than 35% into the book on my Kindle. I know it's a well loved series, but I am thinking I just didn't read it at the right time and so it may not be for me. But it'll always be available on my Kindle so you never know maybe I will try it again.

April Plans 

I actually plan on attempting to do BEDA (Blog Everday in April). Which is a bit terrifying because that is quite a lot of blogging days. However, I do not want to put up a blog just to have it up for BEDA. I plan on posting only content I think is worth the read and documenting on my blog. I am hoping I can do that and post things daily for the month, but if I miss a day or two (let me honest, probably more) I am content with that as long as I am posting as frequent as possible. So this way I can do some of the tags I feel like I have missed out on, maybe create more tags like the one I did yesterday for April Fools, get some discussions in, book reviews as always, and try to be more active on my blog. I am hoping this gets me in a routine of writing daily.

Reading plans wise, so far I am still kind of just picking out books as I am interested in them. I have a few in mind like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World by Shannon and Dean Hale, Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza, Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman and a few books I've been sent for review that I am really excited to read. Oh! And I need to get my hands on The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. Other than that I am kind of just going with whatever I am motivated to read at that moment. Which I am actually really loving.

Thanks for reading!
