This month was pretty great! 😊
Of course, I couldn’t not include a Beauty and the Beast gif in this wrap-up. I mean that movie was perfection and probably the highlight of my month. I took my mom and little sisters to see it and during the library part they all turned to me and said, “You would never leave that room.” Which, I wouldn’t. 😂 Have you guys gotten the chance to see it yet? What did you think? Anyway! Besides that, I participated in my first Goodreads Q&A this month that one of my favorite authors was doing. Safe to say I got nothing done that day but it was completely worth it. I also got more blogging done this month than I have since the end of last year and read two incredible books. Plus, it was my one year blogiversary! *throws party* Outside of obsessing over Beauty and the Beast, reading, and blogging I had a relaxing month which was a much needed and nice change of pace.

-Read But Didn’t Review-
The Struggle (Titan #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I ultimately decided against reviewing The Struggle because I needed a mini break from reviewing and also because I read it way too fast. I devoured this book in less than a day because I couldn’t put it down. I loved it! Seeing how much Seth has grown since the Covenant series and just all the twists and turns. Seriously, I need the last book now!

I’m in such a toss up over this month’s favorite read because both The Struggle and A Darker Shade of Magic were incredible in very different ways. However, in the end, A Darker Shade of Magic wins simply for the fact that I am still in awe over the world building. I’ve not even finished the series and already I want to go back and reread the first book just to experience the introduction to the world all over again!

I’m not entirely sure what April will hold for this little book blog. I do know that I plan on trying to get back into posting two to three times a week. I also plan on keeping up the monthly recommendation posts I’ve been doing for the past few months because I have so much fun with them. And due to the great response I got on the discussion I did this past month I’ve decided I’m going to try to do monthly discussions now as well. I’ve never been the best at coming up with discussion topics but I have a short list at the moment that I’m really excited about. Beyond that, I’m just winging it like always. 😂
Oh and at the beginning of the month I’ll have my blogiversary Q&A response posts up, it’ll most likely be in two or three parts. So, be on the lookout for that!
In March, even though I said I couldn’t, I deviated a bit from my TBR. *hangs head in shame* I just couldn’t get into Blood Rose Rebellion at all. This month, however, I’m so excited about my TBR. I’m finishing up the Shades of Magic books, which I’ve been loving so much, and then I’m finally going to read The Night Circus. Let’s just say this fantasy binge is going strong and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon. (Also, I love how the books in my TBR for this month match color scheme wise. 🙈)
I hope all of you guys had an incredible March full of great books and that you have an even better April! 💕
P.S. Only a little over a month until ACOWAR! *does happy dance*
What books did you read in March? What was your favorite? Did you have a good blogging month or just a good month in general? What do you plan on reading in April? 😊
