Can you believe it’s March already? Time has been lighting speed lately, which can be pretty great when you’re working on a degree. But not so great when you are falling behind on reading because of said degree.
Either way, I still managed to get some reading completed last month, and began some pretty great books I’m taking into this month with me.
I only managed to read 3 books last month (okay, one I was finishing up from January) which has my Goodreads goal screaming in agony. It’s only March 1st and I am 5 books behind schedule. Yeah, I know, I’m awful. But I’m also a self sustaining college student…so I guess I can still pat myself on the back for independence.
- Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
- The Siren by Kiera Cass (read with The Court of Books and Readers)
- To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han (read with The Literary Lions)
I’m in need of catching up on reviews with these three, so have grace. Just know that I liked one, loved one, and just said “meh, okay” to one.
Before I get into March book club reads, I did start two books last month that I am loving. Sadly, I haven’t had much time for reading. So hopefully I will finish those gems this month, as well as the two new books for my book clubs.
- A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
- Kisses and Curses by a bunch of amazing Fierce Reads authors
- Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (BOTM for The Court of Books and Readers)
- Me Before You (BOTM for The Literary Lions)
I’m really hoping I can finish A Darker Shade of Magic in the next week since I will be going to a book signing for the lovely Victoria Schwab and the bad ass Julie Kagawa.
One final announcement before you venture off into March: The Court of Books and Readers is holding a giveaway on our Instagram account (@thecourtofbooksandreaders). It isn’t posted yet, so you have a head start to keep a look out for it!
