Let’s all just agree that March was certifiably insane, and I deeply hope April takes a turn for the better (even though all signs point otherwise, but let’s just keep that positive vibe going, okay?).
Let’s keep our heads up, guys. Life will return to normal again at some point, and we’ll never take the ordinary life for granted after this passes. At least I know I won’t.
I hope you are staying well, and staying sane.
Here’s the deets of the month of March, insanity aside.
Books I got in march
So I bought more than 3 this month! 🥴 Why do I do this to myself, heh heh heeeeeh. At the rate I’m currently reading, I’ll probably get to these new ones by summer of 2027.

✨ I read a little bit more, page-wise, than I did in February. And last month, Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan put me in a rut, and this month, it was The Scapegracers. 😒 I also didn’t listen to audiobooks much this month. But I did really enjoy To Be Honest!
✨ My reading goal for March was to read 1000 pages. That was also February’s goal…and now I’ve failed it two months in a row. Ack. ❌
✨ A review a week? Yep, didn’t happen. ❌
✨ TACKLE MY TBR CHALLENGE UPDATE: My goal is 50 books. In March, I read/finished a total of 4 books, to bring me at a grand total of 8 books so far. The mini challenge for March was ‘favorite genre’, which I did complete, because fantasy is a favorite genre of mine Woo, I get a checkmark!!! ✔️
✨ #STARTONYOURSHELFATHON CHALLENGE UPDATE: My goals are to read at least 2 books a month from my bookshelf, and at least 1 e-book/audiobook per month that I own. So in March I read a total of 0 physical books, and 2 audiobooks. ❌

✨ One less post from February – not bad!
april tbr + goals
I wouldn’t say March was a total loss. I had 7 books on my TBR, and I knocked about half of them out. I want to do better in April, though. I’m going to just make myself a list of 4 books so I won’t feel so threatened by my history of failure. 😅
I hope to try and finish The Scapegracers by this time next week, and then probably start on the beast that is House of Earth and Blood. And then I want to at least read one of my eARCs, which would be Happy & You Know It. And finally, I’m really interested in Buy Me, which should be a quick enough read for me and would result in me reading over 1500 pages for the month. I got this, right??!
✨ APRIL GOALS:
- Read 1000 pages…
- And catch up on my reviews.
