March Wrap Up + Haul

Greetings readers!

This month was…okay. As in it was just okay…?

Look, every month I dream of reading five to ten books. (That’s the amount I add to my TBR each day at least.) Anyways, I came to the realization that I am not a fast reader and that my schedule differs from those of others.

  1. I can’t read a book in a day. *Unless it is super short.* While reading, my mind tends to wonder. It is present in the story, but sometimes lines or phrases trigger thoughts, which trigger more thoughts which just gives me a whole train of thought that was not supposed to be there in the first place. Hence why reading is a slow process for me.
  2. I had a busy month. Yes, I did have spring break…but I went out, hung with the family and friends. Reading was completed, just not as much as I had hoped!

I have to stop comparing myself to others who reads 12-18 books per month. That being said, my wrap up will be short as usual.Β It will not be until the summer that they get super long!

Wrap Up!

The Enemy Within by Scott Burn
This was a continuation from February. I enjoyed it and you can read my review about it here!

Black Dawn by Mallory McCartney
The lovely author requested a review, I played genie and granted that wish! It was a fun book and I look forward to the sequel! You can read my full review here!

Something Secret That I Can’t Tell You About Yet!
This is not a book title please don’t search it up! LOL It’s just a teaser as to what is to come!Β 

The Midnight Star by Marie Lu
A series finale! I haven’t reviewed it yet so stay tuned!



I have a problem.

I am not the kind of person who should be left alone in a bookstore.

I have a problem.

*Note: I have big books to buy in May, they may be expensive! I plan on getting 3! I need money, which I have spent this month! Oh joy!

SO, I took a trip to the cheap bookstore (BMV) and bought myself 4 books! Some I read and some I haven’t. But I am super excited to have them anyways!

I bought…

  • The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
  • Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
  • The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey
  • Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery (The Puffin Bloom edition!)Β 

I have to say that Anne is my favourite buy because the cover is so glorious!

Then I went to my big chain bookstore, Indigo and bought…

  • The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

It was a little pricey, but I was too impatient to wait any longer.

However, I have such horrible timing.

I found out today that Book Outlet has a huge stock for $7 and I got mine at full price. -_-

Kehlani reactions wtf seriously excuse me GIF

C’est tout pour moi! That is all for me!

Let me know how many books you read this month! I would love to know! Also, do you have any tips to squeeze in more reading time? I NEED to know!

Happy reading!

  1. Rendz….I fell for your super secret thing. I’m like, oh, huh, that’s a super weird title. I’m going to have to go check it out on Goodreads…then I read the next sentence and felt like an idiot. I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE SUPER SECRETNESS OF IT ALL. And gosh that sucks about the Winner’s Kiss. 😦 book outlet will be evil like that. And that Anne book is SO CUTE. Wonderful wrap-up, Rendz!! πŸ˜€ AND I MUST KNOW SECRET.

    1. Hehehe…I made sure to put in that extra sentence just in case. It’s not so much of a secret surprise…it’s more of a “you’ll be surprised when you realize how foolish Rendz is” I’m excited to reveal it when I get to it though! Trust me you’ll be laughing and shaking your head at me XD. Book Outlet has me very upset. They have such a great stock right now and I have no money! Ugh so frustrating!

  2. Isn’t that always how it goes? A book we buy goes on sale the next day? Or we end up with two (like me) bc you get one with Amazon and then find a brand new copy HC of the same book at your library’s bookstore for $1!!!! (Yes, I have TWO copies of The Kiss of Deception yet none of the other two). So I feel ya.

  3. A tip that changed my reading life that helped me double my books read per month is audiobooks! Have both a physical copy (and/or and e-copy) and an audio copy and you’ll read it so fast. Overdrive is great for free audiobooks! I hope this helps!

    1. Yes, I am on OverDrive. My library has a great selection…however audiobooks aren’t really for me. I have tried them, but I lose track of what the narrator says sometimes and its kind of hard to rewind and find what I missed. Thanks for the tip though! I really appreciate it!

      1. No problem, I feel that. Sometimes audiobooks just aren’t appealing. You can also try having the e-copy on your phone/mobile device. That way, if you’re a person that can just get sucked into their phone like me, you can pick up where you left off in your book without having to move (lol I mean this literally. I’m lazy af)
