March was an interesting one. Not bad but not really too memorable. But I felt more productive than prior months, so I’m taking it as winnnnnnnnnn.
I read 15 books this month, and they are:
✔️ Some Kind of Happiness by Claire Legrand – 3 👑
✔️ That’s Not What I Heard by Stephanie Kate Strohm – 5 👑
✔️ Book Love by Debbie Tung – 3 👑
✔️ The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Ally Condie – 1 👑
✔️ Marvel Powers of a Girl – 3 👑
✔️ Geekerella by Ash Poston – 5👑
✔️ The Princess and the Fangirl by Ash Poston – 4 👑
✔️ Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus – 1 👑
✔️ Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett- 3 👑
✔️ Moonstruck Vol. 1 by by Grace Ellis, Shae Beagle, Kate Leth (Illustrator), Caitlin Quirk (Illustrator), Clayton Cowles (Illustrator) – 3 👑
✔️ Bingo Love by Tee Franklin (Writer), Jenn St-Onge (Artist), Joy San (Colorist), Cardinal Rae (Letterer) – 4 👑
✔️ Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett – 3 👑
✔️ The Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton
✔️ In the Neighborhood of True by Susan Kaplan Carlton – 4 👑
I feel like all of these months are just blurring together now, and I just keep going eh?? EH?? There were a few highs at least? I think???
Geekerella and That’s Not What I Heard were definitely the highs. They are both adorable, fluffy contemporaries, so I’m finally getting back into my contemporary grooveeeeeeeee. I thought it was lost, but now, I’m backkkk. The Princess and the Fangirl was another good read, and I did enjoy the fluff and it had such an amazing setting. In the Neighborhood of True was the last read that I had for the month, and it ended on a pretty good note.
Well, there was a lot of lows but mostly mehs. The biggest low was the The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Ally Condie. I enjoyed the buddy read aspect of it, but that was not enough for me to definitely take my last voyage with Ally Condie. Two Can Keep a Secret was not the goodness either.
The rest of the books definitely teetered around between 2s and 3s. IT WAS JUST A REALLY MEH MONTH. Tbh, I forgot that I read most of these, so that shows you.
Other BPR Activities
Sha and I participated in Women’s Reading Month hosted by Margaret @ Weird Zeal. It was a fabulous readathon with prompts based on all the epic leading ladies out there – character and writing wise both. I finished 11 of the 16 prompts, so I’m feeling decently impressed with myself.
Sha and I also had a blogging event to help us get to know us a bit better. We had #MeetMeMarch, where Sha and I did our Disney zodiacs, tried to talk only in emojis, and more! They were so much fun, and this was totally all Sha’s brilliant brain child.
I also introduced a new blogging series, and ladies and gents, I AM BACK. I have done two actual blogging series posts ON TIME, and found somewhat enjoyment in them??? Like, idk who I AM but I was quite the proud of myself, since, ya know, I fail so badly on them. Hopefully you shall be seeing two Mandy Reads Fairytales posts a month. I tackled Cinderella and The Snow Queen so far.
I have also officially caught up with The Good Place, and like, I need moreeeeeeeeeeee. Omg, this show is so much goodness and I CANT. I NEED. Sha recommended that I start Brooklyn Nine Nine, and after a bit of a rocky start for me, it’s really picked up, and I think I’m on the last episode of the first season.
Also, I’m back in Buzzfeed Unsolved major vibes (um, perhaps because of a certain readathon???), and I binge watched all of the Supernatural ones that I missed. The last episode gave me CHILLS. Omigosh, so good, but so creepy. D: D: D:
Um, I don’t think I actually hauled anything??? WHAT IS THIS MADNESS. I DON’T KNOWWWWW. Nothing stands out for me, and I’ve been pretty chill about buying/requesting ARCs when I have ARCs and a whole bookshelf to be read.
You can find my TBR here! Sha and I are participating in another readathon, and this one is amazinggggggggggggggggg. I WILL BE OVER HERE SCREECHING. I have 10 books for sure I’ll be reading for this readathon, but I’m trying to figure out what else I’ll be trying to read for the rest of the month. I know I’ll be hauling The Devouring Gray and you best believe I’m super pumped for that.
What do you think? What books did you read last month? Did we share any of the same? What do you plan for April? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
