March Wrap-Up & Haul

Hi guys! Can you believe it’s April already? 7 WEEKS LEFT OF SCHOOL. That’s 7 too many, in my opinion, but anyway…

This post will be split into two parts β€” books read and books acquired. There won’t be a blog section (15 posts this month) or a life section, because I haven’t done anything really interesting and won’t until BookCon next month. πŸ˜‰

So without further rambling ado, here’s my wrap-up!


Read

Between the week I took to read Lady Midnight and midterms, I only read 7 books this month. I’m happy with that, though, because I still found time to read. πŸ˜‰ My reviews were, once again, very mixed.

1. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir β€” 3Β½ out of 5 stars

2. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart β€” DNF β€” 1ΒΌ out of 5 stars

3. Lady Midnight [ARC] by Cassandra Clare β€” 5 out of 5 stars

4. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs β€” 4ΒΎ out of 5 stars

5. The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas β€” 5 out of 5 stars

6. Crossing The Line [ARC] by Meghan Rogers β€” 5 out of 5 stars

7. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black β€” DNF β€” 2Β½ out of 5 stars

Between my three five-star reads, I honestly can’t pick a favorite.

This puts me at 22% for my Goodreads challenge, or 28 out of 130 books. πŸ™‚


Acquired

I acquired 8 books this month! So far, 2016 has been a big book-buying splurge. πŸ˜€ This month probably won’t be (although I’ve gotten 2 already), because BookCon is next month and my birthday is in June. ⭐

1. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare (The Dark Artifices #1) β€” I won an ARC box via the Shadowhunters Twitter page the week before it was released. [read] πŸ˜€

2. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black β€” I got this the day I met Cassie because Holly and Sarah Rees Brennan were there too. [read]

3. The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare & Holly Black (Magisterium #1) β€” I bought this the day I met Cassie, too. [read]

4. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (Lynburn Legacies #1) β€” I also bought this the day I met Cassie. [currently reading]

5. Crossing The Line by Meghan Rogers (The Raven Files #1) β€” I was sent an ARC by an imprint of Penguin Teen. [read] πŸ˜€

6. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck (The Tiger Saga #1) β€” I got this with the $45 gift card to Barnes & Noble I got for Easter. [unread]

7. Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (Anna and The French Kiss #1) β€” I got this with my B&N gift card too. [read]

8. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1) β€” I also got this with my B&N gift card. I think I was most excited about this because one of the two B&N stores in my area stopped carrying this (???) so I wasn’t expecting to find it. πŸ˜€ [unread]


And that’s all for now! My April TBR should be up tomorrow. πŸ™‚

How many books did you buy in March? How many did you read? What was your favorite? I’d love to know! πŸ™‚

I’m going to read a bit more of Unspoken and have some chocolate fudge brownie ice cream. Good night guys! πŸ˜€

Until next time…

  1. I adored ACOTAR! I can’t wait for the next! Funnily enough, I was really disappointed by both Miss Peregrine and An Ember in the Ashes… But I liked We Were Liars!
