Favorite Book Read This Month: Queen of Shadows is everythinggg. Rowan is bae.
Least Favorite Book Read This Month: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West was a little underwhelming after how may people assured me it would change my mind after my lackluster experience with The Fill In Boyfriend.
Book that Most Surprised Me This Month: Remembrance by Meg Cabot was so much fun, but a bit dissappointing in the sense that it was super formulaic and didn’t bring much new content to the table from how the YA Mediator plots played out (review to come)!

Updates About My Life This Month
March started out relatively slow, but got insane toward the end as I headed into a mini busy season at work. I’m keeping up with my Goodreads challenge though, which is fantastic (although now it means I have a backlog of reviews to write, the problems of being a fast reader!) April has a LOT of incredible things in store, and I’m doing something exciting almost every weekend. I’ll be seeing Emery Lord speak about her new novel When We Collided, I’m heading to YALLWest for the second year in a row (and it seems that it’s going to be even bigger and more incredible this year!) and…I’m going to HARRY POTTER LAND (aka the Wizarding World of Harry Potter that they’re opening in California this month). It was a total surprise trip sprung on us by Max’s incredible family, and we CANNOT WAIT (although I’ll probably have to get up at the crack of dawn to get in line but TOTALLY WORTH IT). Can you tell I’m excited? 😉
This past month I’ve also started getting more and more into bookstagram. I’m participating in the #novelnellie2016 challenge and it’s really pushing me to test out my creative limits and be artistic! I’m having so much fun and I love that it’s a community that is so beautiful, friendly, and easy to keep up with when I’m on the go!
April means warmer weather, a new season, and many coveted book releases! Do you have anything exciting (bookish or otherwise) on your schedule for April? Let me know in the comments!
