Since I haven’t updated since January I”m gonna go ahead and put the Feb/March wrap-up together and then have an April wrap-up/May TBR.
It’s been a while since I last posted again. February was an extremely busy month for me as I had midterms, papers and reading for my classes, but I am on Spring break so I have a little bit of a break and might be able to get some things done ahead of time this week. I also have quite a few posts that I have planned, some older, and newer, so I’m hoping to catch up on some blogging this week as well.
February was a good month for reading, which was surprising to me because I had a lot going on. I was able to read a couple of really good books, and one even surprised me too. The rest of them were just okay, but I was glad that I was able to finally read them. I am a little bit behind for my reading challenge but I am catching up again. The rest of March and April look to be just as busy, and May will also probably be busy as well.
I’m also thinking about adding a co-blogger to my blog as well. I haven’t made a full decision on it yet but I am looking to add some more content to my blog. If I do make the decision there will be a separate post up about it over the next week or so. I’ll keep you guys posted about it though.
February was an extremely busy month but I was able to squeeze in some books that I”ve wanted to read for a while. My goal for this year is to finish some books that I’ve had on my shelf for a long time, and I also want to make some progress on some books that I’ve tried to start but wasn’t in the mood for them or I just never got to them. I have read a few on this list so far and as a bonus, I am also reviewing those books so that I have more motivation to read them so I will have some up over the next couple of weeks before things get hectic again.
Total books read: 6
Total amount of pages read: 2,171
My least favorite book was probably Save the Date by Morgan Matson. I liked some of the characters in the story but felt that there was a lot going on, and some of the stuff that happened did feel like it was a bit much. Overall, I did enjoy some of the snovel. (3 stars).
I think the book that surprised me the most this month was Forest of a Thousand Lanterns (#1) by Julie C. Dao. I was expecting this one to be a light retelling novel, but it was definitely the complete opposite of that. It did get a little dark sometimes, but I definitely enjoyed it and I definitely thought it was a good take on the Snow White story. (4.5 stars)
Total amount of books read: 10
March got pretty crazy towards the end of the month, but I was able to read some really good books over my Spring break.
My two favorite books from March was Golden Son (#2) by Pierce Brown and The Shadowglass (#3) by Rin Chupeco. The world made straight is probably my third favorite and the best book that I’ve read for school this entire semester. I also got to see Ron Rash at an interview that he was doing at my school, which was a ton of fun. The Shadowglass was one of my most anticipated books of the year and one of the few books to ever make me cry at the end. Golden son was a rollercoaster of emotions and I am definitely continuing on to Morning star which I am currently reading now.
Well, this is the latest update. I’ll have my April wrap-up/May TBR hopefully later tonight or tomorrow night after I get off work.
