March: The Month Where I Did Literally Nothing

Month 3 complete! That means I’m one step closer to graduation, and to summer!! Admittedly, this has not been the best month for reading, or much of anything, but I’ll summarize what I have completed this month.

Books Read…

I’ve only finished two books this month, I don’t know how that’s possible.  It’s been really really hard for me to find time to read, my audiobook is taking me far longer than it should, and I just haven’t really been putting as much time in as I know I need to.

  1. I liked this book, and although it is different from what I am used to, it was pretty good.  I plan on writing a review soon, so bare with me.  With alternating POVs, I enjoyed 2/3 A LOT but unfortunately it was the 3rd which dominated the screen time.21853621
  2. I’m so so so glad that I chose to read this book!!! It was hands down one of the best books I’ve ever read and I 100/10 recommend, so if you’re looking for a good historical fiction book pick this one.

Currently Reading…

This list is almost the same as last month because I keep starting books and not really following up.  I’m struggling really badly guys.

  1. 518855
  2. Also on my list from last month, this book is good, but it’s a little tough to get through because I read it as my before bed book, meaning I only get through a few pages each night.  It’s sort of on hold right now because of the next book…20820994
  3. A new read! I said that this was a buddy read, but the thing is I’m being a terrible buddy reader and reading terribly slowly.  It’s incredible right now though and I love all of the characters.51wxen3hdul-_sy346_
  4. (maybe if i read less books at a time I would get through them faster??) This one I received as an ebook review copy, and I’ve been really enjoying it.  It’s such a unique read, and the protagonist is incredible.

Challenge Progress…

To see my full list of challenges and the books read for each category, head over to my 2017 Goals page

Goodreads Challenge– I’m 8/25, which means I’m still on track despite being the worst reader in the whole world this month.  Yay for reading 4 books last month!!!

What’s in a Name– 1/6! I’ve finally read one!! And, one of the books on my currently reading list counts for another!! Woohoo!!!

Read Harder Challenge– 6/24 so I’m on track.  and is I’ll Give you the Sun written by an LGBTQ+ author?  I can’t figure that out on the internet so any helpful commenting would be appreciated.

Best of the Blog…

Welcome to my favorite part of this post! If you haven’t read any of the posts that I talk about below, you should really, really get on that 😉

  1. The Mystery Blogger Award— If you want to learn more about me and read my answers to some pretty tough questions, then this is the post for you!! It got the most views this month, which I find strange, but if you all love me that much then yay!
  2. Interview with Susan Barton— You NEED to read this post if you are interested in books, monetizing your blog, or DIY activities blogs, because Susan does it all.  She’s a crazy accomplished blogger, and I was so lucky to get to interview her!  Consider yourselves lucky to get to read the post.
  3. Interview with Alistair Cross— I know what you’re thinking.  Two interviews in one month? How lucky is she!?!?! But seriously, Alistair is an incredible author, and he has had so many cool life experiences, that it’s definitely worthwhile to read about it.
  4. The Book Cover Guessing Game— In which I try to come up with descriptions for popular books based only on their covers and fail horribly, featuring The Red Queen and All the Bright Places
  5. An Open Letter to An Author— A letter I wrote in honor of JK Rowling, which I liked and apparently you guys did too 🙂

All that Other Stuff…

  1. GUYS I’VE FINALLY DONE IT!!! 200 followers!!! THANK YOU ALL SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO MUCH!!! I’m running a giveaway, so check it out below!!!
  2. I’ve started my editing business!! And I had a client!! And I did it! So if you have a novel you’d like me to read and edit, I’m looking for a new client to work with after April break.  (AKA beginning the 17th of April)
  3. That’s all I really have to say, but I’m so excited about both of the above and it almost makes the not reading thing okay.

I read and I write about it. If I'm not online or with my nose in a book, I can probably be found at the basketball court.

  1. Congratulations on running a great blog and for reaching 200 followers! Conducting two interviews is quite the accomplishment.

    If I win, I’d like to receive Final Girls by Riley Sager.
    I love psychological thrillers and this one seems like quite the ride. My favourite books are ones that don’t let you put them down! (Also, read The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes. It is amazing and Final Girls seems very similar to it.)

    1. Final Girls was sooooo amazing!! ! I think you’ll definitely enjoy it if you like thrillers. It’s killing me that I can’t publish the review until May (publisher’s request) because I read it such a long time ago and am dying to share!!!!

  2. Oooh, is I’ll Give You The Sun good/ I’ve heard a lot about it, but I’m wondering if it’s too romancy and istalovey for me?

    1. thank you so much!! I’m still kind of in shock, lol
      Girl out of water was so so so good I think you’ll really like it.
      I’ll Give you the sun is more insta-attraction than insta-love, but I feel like there’s so much more than that in this book (it’s actually sort of sad and addresses a lot of issues) and so I feel like it works anyways ? Idk how to describe it
