Monthly Wrap Up: March 2019

Oooh, boy. March was the longest month of the year so far. I kind of thought it would never end? I went through a pretty rough depression spell around the middle of the month, but other than that things were pretty good! Keep reading for a detailed breakdown of how things went.

Reading

March was such a good reading month for me! Honestly, this was such a relief after February. I read a total of 22 books, which puts me at 62 for the year, which also means I met my Goodreads reading goal! When I made my reading goal for the year, I honestly thought I would be struggling to finish it, but I’ve been tearing through everything I can get my hands on lately. Here are my 4 and 5 star reads from the month:

The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik by David Arnold
Hold Still by Nina LaCour
The Goodbye Summer by Sarah Van Name
Field Notes on Love by Jennifer E. Smith
i love this part by Tillie Walden
Squad by Mariah MacCarthy
A City Inside by Tillie Walden
You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn (my favorite book of 2019 and now one of my all time favorites!)
Heroine by Mindy McGinnis
Midsummer’s Mayhem by Rajani LaRocca
Bloom by Kevin Panetta and Savanna Ganucheau
A Lite Too Bright by Samuel Miller
Shout by Laurie Halse Anderson
How to Make Friends with the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow

Events

I was supposed to attend three author events in March, but one I didn’t go to for mental health reasons and one I just decided I wasn’t interested in, but I did see Laurie Halse Anderson at Barnes & Noble! She was inspiring and I’m so lucky I was able to hear her speak. I also saw one of my favorite artists, Julia Michaels, at The Vanguard. She was better than I ever could have imagined. If you want to know more about either of those events, just click the above links to be taken to their posts!

Blogging

My goal was to have a post go up at least every single weekday, and I did it! I even had posts on almost all of the weekend days, too! There was only one day this month that a post didn’t go up and I’m so proud of that. My three most popular posts were Top Ten Books On My Spring 2019 TBR, Top Ten Characters I’d Like To Switch Places With, and the Grey’s Anatomy Book Tag that I created! Y’all really blessed me in March and I seriously couldn’t be any more thankful! Because of you I had over 1,100 views, 500 visitors, and I’m up to 139 followers! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I’ve been having the best time blogging and sharing all of my thoughts with you all, and I just hope my content is being enjoyed.

Life

Like I said at the start of this wrap up, I really feel like March was a good month! Compared to how things normally are, it seemed like a less busy month and that was definitely a huge relief. I was able to get new glasses, and that’s always such a fun time. My last pair, which I can actually still wear since my prescription didn’t change, were on the smaller side. Normally I prefer huge frames, so I got two pairs that basically take up the entire top half of my face and I love them.

This month I also got the cutest daisy growing kit from Target for $1. I tried really really hard (honest I did) to get this daisy to grow. I watered it every day, put it outside in the sun, brought it inside at night when it got cold, but nothing ever happened. Really though I’m not surprised since I have the insane ability to kill every single plant I touch. I don’t think there’s ever been a plant in my entire life that I’ve been able to keep alive, no matter how hard I try. I want to be a plant lady so bad though! But I think it’s time I accept my fate.

Don’t forget that in between blogging you can always catch me on Twitter! I’ve even started bookstagramming again if that’s more your thing!

Tell me, how was your March? Was it a good/bad reading month? If you’re a blogger, what was your favorite post from the month? I want to know, so leave a comment and let’s chat! I’d also really love if you let me know what things you like about my blog and which things you hate. Now that I’ve been blogging for a month now (already??), I’m starting to get into a groove, but I want to make sure it’s jiving with you all!

  1. My my! 22 that’s absolutely fantastic! And congratulations on crushing your GR challenge in the first quarter!! 🙌 Tbh, even I thought I’ll be struggling with my GR goal of 50 for the year, but I’m 6 books ahead of schedule and a couple that I still haven’t updated on GR. 2019 had been kind reading wise 😁
