March 2019 Wrap Up

Hello friends! Todays post is my March Wrap Up.

Doesn’t it seem like it was yesterday when I did my February Wrap Up?

My To Be Read list for March didn’t include anything special — or anything at all. Last month I had a set TBR and I was so unhappy with it. I am a mood reader to the core, so when I set reading goals for myself… I end up stressing myself out to the point where I can’t, or won’t finish the TBR list I had set for myself.

For March though, my reading goals were to just have fun reading. Which, honestly, should be a monthly reading goal for the rest of my life.

Here’s what happened in March.

What I read this March:

  • Almost Midnight by Rainbow Rowell
  • The Mating Heat (Werewolves of Montana, #0.5) by Bonnie Vanak
  • [DNF] Ocean’s Daughter by Lisa Barton

I didn’t read too much this month, unfortunately. Well…not unfortunately, because I now have the means to play a game I’ve been wanting to play for the last 10 years. Though it is a little sad that I went overboard on playing MapleStory so much so that I didn’t make the time to read as much as I had wanted to.

Book Reviews of March 2019

Here is what I posted this month:

Usually I also post an update on my State of the ARC progress, but there isn’t much that happened. Therefore I’m going to combine March’s State of the ARC with April’s.

The books I downloaded this month were:

  • Ride Me Dirty (Bridgewater County Book 1) by Vanessa Vale
  • When In Love: A Brother’s Best Friend Romance by Amy Sanderlin
  • The Mating Heat (Werewolves of Montana, #0.5) by Bonnie Vanak

I’ve been in the mood to read more romance lately. Specifically, I was wanting to read some Cowboy romances. These three were the ones I downloaded. The only one I read was The Mating Heat, and honestly, I wouldn’t count it as a Cowboy romance at all.

In the Blogosphere

There are so many great blog posts on the internet, but here are the ones that caught my eye this month!

Book Rambler Mentions Feyre, from the ACOTAR series, and to be honest, I agree.

breathetoread mentions Alice, from the Twilight series, and I agree with this one as well.

I didn’t even know that Black Dawn had a sequel to be honest. So nor did I know that the sequel to Black Dawn was published already. Their review clued me into the sequel, and proved that Queen to Ashes would be an interesting read for me.

Clo writes incredibly helpful blog pieces that centre around Book Blogging. Honestly, I couldn’t be more thankful for Clo’s posts. Not only do I get a refresher on topics when I read these Book Blogging 101 posts, but I learn quite a bit as well.

I actually struggle with blog hopping, and commenting quite a bit. Naturally, I’m quite a quiet person, so trying to give back supportive feedback and just commenting on people posts is quite the challenge for me. Blog hopping is a challenge as well since viewing others posts can be extremely exhausting for me.

I genuinely enjoy reading To Be Read type of posts, and reading A Season of Sequels was no different. What I loved about Kimi’s post was that Kimi’s writing was very open. When I was reading Kimi’s post, I immediately felt like Kimi could be a friend. I also adore her photography. The pictures that Kimi took are w o w I wish I could emulate the vibe that Kimi has going on.

Novel Lives (aka, Susan) has written a post where she talks about the books that are going to be published this Spring that she’s excited for. Honestly, she has 5 books on her Top Ten post that have me excited.

Kal’s post has really made me think on whether or not I should let my blogs’ stats dictate what I post. I’ll admit that I’ve done a post or two in the past based on a certain posts stats. However, I try not to let that dictate my future posts.

Yet I have a few blog posts planned in the future that were based on past blog posts. I’m just reiterating them. Freshening them up with new books to talk about, you know? So I guess I do and don’t let stats control my posting.

I plan on doing this tag in the sometime-near-future. There were some pretty interesting questions, and reading Haley’s answers was a joy as well.

March Journal:

03; Happy Birthday, Mum!

07; It has been snowing on and off for the last few weeks. Today however, t o d a y, has been the most typical British Columbia day, ever. In the spans of a few hours, it was sunny as heck, then it rained, which then turned into big fat snowflakes. And now that the again rain has passed, it’s just overcast now. lololol.

14; I discovered how to make my own Book Sleeve’s. I’ve already made two and honestly. I love them. I’m looking for bigger patterns though, since there seems to be so many YA hardcovers that’re bigger than hardcovers made in previous years…

19; I have not been reading and it’s making me feel like I’m behind on quite a few books and such. However, I can now play a game that I haven’t been able to play for almost, 10 years, so I’ve been playing instead of reading. Lol.

28; I’ve been so tired today. Honestly I think that’s because I need to fix my sleeping schedule again. So I’m posting my March Wrap Up today instead of tomorrow!

    ah thanks so much for sharing my post Adele! I’mso glad you find them helpful ❤ that particular series is on pause for all of April funnily enough, due to Bookending Spring happening but it'll be returning in May 😉 so hopefully you'll enjoy the other posts I have lined up in that series. As for your reading, you waited 10 years to get this game, you can totally play it to the extreme in my opinion. I waited 6 years to get animal crossing new leaf and most of March has been me playing it xD

    Hope you have an awesome April!

    I feel it’s time for me to comb through more of your posts, some slip through reader and discord past my eyes, but I wouldn’t think anything of reading less books than you wanted to this month, as long as you had fun with it that’s all that matters! I usually a mood reader so this month was pretty annoying as for March, April, and May I really have to stick with a list from NetGalley because I’m a twit.

    Thanks so much for linking the tag post I did, and I can’t wait to see your answers! And you shared some great posts ❤

    Sounds like a good month to me!

      Thank you for your kind words! and honestly, I should stick with reading ARCs for the next little while as well. …But there are SO many great sounding books out there that I can’t help myself, LOL.

      And no problemo! I enjoyed reading your post ❤

    Thank you so much for sharing my discussion post, and there’s nothing wrong really about writing posts based on your stats (especially if you are a blogger that is trying to make a living from blogging!) so long as you enjoy it. I am glad it made you think about your habits though, and I am guilty of writing posts because I thought they would do well – the thing is, that’s hard to predict! Which is why I try to focus on my joy.

    I am also a mood reader, TBRs stress me the heck out. I hope you are having a good reading month!
