March Wrap Up & April TBR

It's that time of the month again. I'm so beyond happy to be out of March. Nothing against March, I just can't take anymore winter crap. Bring on spring! It's actually +12 today and sunny. The office door is open. My cars sunroof is open. YAY!
So March, how did it go? Really good! Read 21 books. Had a few buddy reads with Samantha again. And I'm hoping she will agree, but it makes the reading experience so much more fun reading it with her. Mostly because we're total fangirls.
I also did something a little scary(for me anyhow) this month. I filmed and uploaded a few book related videos to my Youtube channel. Which means I've officially decided to join the Booktube community too. I feel it's just another way to connect with book lovers. And as awkward as I seem(and feel) on camera, there are just somethings that are much easier filmed than written. So I filmed quite a few more videos over the weekend and hope to post them throughout the week(depending on my internet at home...it's been a jerk).

Sooo had a very good reading month. Look at all those lovely 4* and 5*. Although my review books(the last three) didn't go so well for me. I continued my JLA love-a-thon. Read March and 2014 new releases and also got to some books that have been sitting on my shelves forever. My favourite of the month was White Hot Kiss and closely followed by Maybe Someday. I have reviews up for both of them. But holy crap, I finished both of them and really wanted to turn back to page one and start again. So brilliant in their own ways!

My April TBR is pretty set. I really want to read all the books I've picked. I'm doing more buddy reads with Samantha. We're pretty much doing one a week. Super excited for our choices; How to LoveHalf-BloodDon't Look Back and Dorothy Must Die. And probably even Black City. I have a few more new releases that I will be reading; Dreams of Gods and Monsters and Kingdom Keepers 7:The Insider. I need to review Sea of Shadows and probably some other review books. Also a few re-reads. And the rest in the picture I just really feel like reading right now.

Let me know how your March was. How's your April shaping up to be?

Happy reading!



  1. So many books!
    Super excited for Half-Blood myself, must buy it asap! Don't Look Back and Dorothy Must Die both sound great as well, Dorothy especially, though I read mixed reviews on it. Dreams of Gods and Monsters is one I'll start soon. I plan to start the series when all books are out to binge read :D
    Happy reading!

  2. Wowizers you did awesome! Excited to see what you read in April!
