March 2018 - Monthly Wrap Up

March 2018

March is already over.  It is really hard to believe.  I feel like it rained the entire month.  I am sure that it really didn't but it kind of feels like it did.  Quite a few things happened during the month.  There were band concerts, prom dresses to buy, medical appointments, college visits, a book signing, kids to play with, dogs to walk, and a week away from work.  Some days were relaxing while others were anything but.  Overall, I think it was a pretty decent month and I have to admit that I am kind of surprised that I managed to fit 15 books into the mix with everything else going on in my life.

I am linking this post to the Monthly Wrap-Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

  1. What a busy and productive March you had, I wish I could say the same book review wise but I was a slacker and was away the last 2 weeks of March. I look forward to your review of The Good Luck Sister as I have this on my to read list.

    1. I gave up on Nights at Seaside by Addison Cole. I couldn't stand the narrator and I wasn't all that impressed by the story. I don't usually write reviews for books I don't finish. Of course, I rarely dnf - maybe twice a year or so.

  3. It really was a fast moving busy month. Way to go on reading four blogger shames and getting through a nice stack even though you were busy.

    Have a great April, Carole!

  4. You always seem busy, so I’m impressed that you read so much. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of Only Human. I read the first book in that series and then failed to continue with the series. I hope you have a great April!

    1. Thanks, Lily! I am really working hard on catching up those old NetGalley books this year. I have not been adding to the pile like I used to and I have a goal of bumping my percentage by 1% every month.

  13. I've only heard of a handful of these books, but they look good! I read 29 books in March and Jenn (My blog mate) read 46 and I want to beat her, or at least get close to her count for April.
