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.

Love, Simon – I have a review of the movie compared to the book coming up. I really enjoyed the movie. It was fun, poignant and a sweet romance.

February Wrap-Up

IMG_5320I decided I wanted to start doing monthly wrap-up posts. I will go through the books I managed to read throughout the month as well as the posts that I did as well. I might occasionally add movies and tv-shows.

During February I only managed to read three books. I think this was because one of them was slower and also because I did a lot of writing.  I also did some rearranging of my apartment that took time away from reading.

Books I read:
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee – This was a quick read. Fun, funny and interesting. Eager for the second book!

Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Beck Albertalli – I adored this book. My favorite of the year so far. Made me so happy.

Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang – Short stories but took me a while to get through. Some were better than others. I will do a full review soon with my thoughts.

I have been trying to post more often. I have a back-log of books to review which makes it easier. I am hoping to be able to keep up a steady posting schedule.

TV Shows:
Queer Eye – I have been obsessed with the reboot of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” on Netflix. I binged all the episodes in a weekend. I loved the original but I think I love this reboot even more. The guys are great with all separate personalities, and every episode just has such an air of positivity and happiness. I can’t wait for more episodes!

What was your February like? What were some of your favorite reads, movies, tv shows or songs?
