Favorite Book Read in March: This is so hard, as March was a GREAT reading month! My lowest rated book was 3.5 stars! I’m going to have to go with The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski, as I was completely drawn into the world building and Kestrel is one of my new favorite YA heroines!

Least Favorite Book Read in March: Sadly, Lola and the Boy Next Door. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it and LOVED the San Francisco setting! I just wasn’t convinced by the romance between Lola and Cricket.

Book that Most Surprised Me in March: Definitely Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas. I wasn’t convinced to join the bandwagon after Throne of Glass, but I’m so glad I gave Crown of Midnight a chance because I LOVED it, and I am totally invested in the series now!

Updates About My Life This Month

 This month was crazy! I took the GRE (Yay! It’s done!), celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday, vacationed in San Francisco, went to a wedding, and spent the last week of the month on a road trip (look for an upcoming post about my travels!) April is going to be busy right from the get go as well, as YALLWEST is in less than 10 days!

My goal for the rest of the spring is to really organize and enhance my blog as much as possible, including getting even more active in the blogging community and trying to schedule more posts in advance. I also hope to up my reading, as well as participate in a few new challenges!

  1. It looks like you had a great (reading) month! I really enjoyed Crown of Midnight, but Heir of Feir
    completely changed the scale for me, it was on a whole other level. And I still haven’t read The Winner’s Curse, even though it’s on my shelf here… Honestly, Lola and the Boy Next Door is my least favorite in the series, I think Isla and the Happily Ever After is my favorite.

    Good luck with your goals for spring -and April!

  2. Those are all such great books! Also, I’m with you on the scheduling posts in advance. I try to and then I have maybe 10 stocked up and just stop writing posts for 10 days because I had them all planned. It’s the whole continuous thing that’s hard for me. Good luck!
