March Wrap-Up + April TBR || The month of slumps and smut

Yes, you’ve read that title correctly; for the amount of ARC’s I had to read, I literally read none of them?? 

I was just hit with a horrible slump… and it took me until the end of March to just stop forcing it. I will get to said ARC’s when I get to them, I promise.

I’m going to be using my rep indicators in my wrap up. This idea was Romie’s @RomieWeDeserveLove so credit for the idea for these markers goes there!

🌈 = books with lgbt+ representation

🌞 = representation of people of colour

♿ = disability rep

🌸 = mental illness rep

Seedling on Microsoft Windows 10 October 2018 Update= buddy read

✔ = was on my monthly tbr

📚 = physical book

📝 = ARC

Not all of the book covers will be shown for… reasons???

Best This Month: I actually don’t know…. this month wasn’t exactly fully of scintillating reads.

Wicked Saints – Emily A. Duncan | Sherwood – Meagan Spooner | Between the Water and the Woods – Simone Snaith | When the Sky Fell on Splendor – Emily Henry 

New segment because I’ve been implementing reading multiple books at a time (which is something I said I’d never do) and like I mentioned above… this month was a big ball of slumps and smut.

  • The Devouring Gray { The Devouring Gray #1 } – Christine Lynn Herman 21% in
  • The Cruel Prince { The Folk of Air #1 } – Holly Black 38% in
  • Middlegame – Seanan McGuire 30% in
  • Clockwork Angel { The Infernal Devices #1 } – Cassandra Clare TBD
  • Caraval { Caraval #1 } – Stephanie Garber TBD
  • Blanca y Roja – Anna-Marie McLemore TBD

I recommend Spring reads, I talk about my blog glo up and how I tab my books.

My Netgalley/Edelweiss shelves stay a mess and I interview the author of Spectacle (and uhhhhh here’s a review for that).

T5W: I Thought I’d Hate You

TTT: Spring TBR


The second half of this month was a bit more hectic, with family coming over and stress and all, but I did a lot!

I stepped out of my comfort zone and helped out with A-spec April and I sort of beta read a chapter for a book I raved about last year.

SUCCESS.

  1. Sounds like you had a productive month in March with blogging and helping out with A-Spec April! I’ve definitely had those months in the past where you feel like all the books you read were good, but none were amazing. Hopefully April will be better, and you’ve certainly got some exciting books on your TBR! 😀

  2. Aww sorry there weren’t any especially spectacular reads this month. I just tell myself if I ever managed to read 100 books a year, only 15 would make the 5 star list most likely. It’s the ebb and flow of being a reader, I guess. Hopefully, you’ll have a new favorite by April 🙂
    How are you liking The Devouring Gray so far?

    1. Thank you ❤ ❤ Yeah, I know I'm picky with my ratings, but March REALLY was not cooperating XD

      I actually really liked The Devouring Gray! A lot more than I was expecting since the fist half was kind of slow and such. I'm SUPER excited for a sequel now ❤
