March Wrap Up

This was one of my best reading months yet. It is rare that I can get through more than 3 books in a month. This month I read 8. (Now at least 3 of those were short and I was able to read them in about two days, but still). I have been in a groove with the books I have been reading. They have all been ones that I want to go back to over and over again.

I am currently 3 books ahead of my Goodreads reading goal, which is nice. I like to get ahead so that when I slow down my reading pace I have some room. I know that the next few books I plan on reading will be longer so that room will be good to have.

Haven’t written too much. Some personal things have made it hard for me to focus. I am still part of a writing group so that is forcing me to write something tangible at least every two weeks.

The only blog posts I have written have been reviews this month. I wanted to write more but have been preoccupied and busy. I am hoping to step it up a bit more next month.

Books I read:
The Invisible Library – Genevieve Cogman – This book started off a series that has potential. I wasn’t enthralled by the book but I did enjoy it and I do plan on continuing with the series soon.

In An Absent Dream– Seanan McGuire – The Wayward Children series is one of my all time favorites. The way these books can focus on issues and tell a compelling story is fantastic. This one hit home and I actually wrote a story based off a quote.

The World of Lore – Monstrous Creatures – Aaron Mahnke- This was fascinating with new information that I hadn’t read before.

Gateway to the Gods – K.A. Applegate – This one looked at the idea of these gods being trapped by their stories which was interesting.

The World of Lore – Wicked Mortals – Aaron Mahnke – This one didn’t thrill me as much as the first one. It veered away from the theme a bit too much.

The Past and Other Things that Should Stay Buried – Shaun David Hutchinson – Great characters, might have worked better as a short story instead of a novel.

Brave the Betrayal – K.A. Applegate – Explored the idea of when to hold values and beliefs and when to think about your over all health and safety.

Inside the Illusion – K.A. Applegate – Gave us insight into Senna which helped round out the series.

Blog Posts:
Since all my posts were reviews this month and they are all linked above I am not going to link them again here.

Shows I watched:
Umbrella Academy – I have heard about this show for a minute and finally gave it a shot. It was fantastic! I adored the characters and loved the storyline. It felt new and refreshing. I adored Klaus and need him as a friend in my life. I really hope there is another season of it!

Queer Eye – The third season of Queer Eye came out on Netflix and I am in love. This show is the definition to positivity and happiness. I adore the way they help people be better and not change who they are. I cannot be unhappy after watching this show!

March Wrap-Up

1280px-Stipula_fountain_penMy reading life wasn’t quite as extensive as I wanted it to be this month. I had planned to finish the Raven Cycle series but ended up getting sick. I wish that had meant more time to read but since I couldn’t see that made reading a bit difficult. I did get through three of the four books and should have the last one finished within the first few days of April. I am still 3 books ahead of my Goodreads challenge of reading 40 books this year, so I’m satisfied with this month’s progress.

I am also proud of myself with the way I have managed to create a more routine posting schedule. I also have gotten a bit better at doing outside writing and fitting it into my schedule. Being sick threw me off but work has calmed down a bit so hopefully my short story and novel writing schedule should get better as well.


Books I read:

The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza – Shaun David Hutchinson – One of my favorite authors. It was a fun read and raised some interesting questions as his others have done.51zb1Ggd5VL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_
The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater
The Dream Thieves – Maggie Stiefvater
Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater – I am loving this series and am eager to see how it ends.
