March 2016: Month in Review

What I’ve Been Up To:

Blogging:

Not too much to report on the blog front, other than your first warning that this blog will be going on some amount of hiatus for basically a month, since I won’t be taking a laptop with me to Asia.

Oh, I also failed to instagram my new books, so here are the few I did capture.

Shenanigans:

Life has been too busy with work for there to be too many shenanigans. I had a nice easter dinner with my parents, boyfriend, and besties, but other than that, it’s been pretty quiet.

I got a minion at work, which is kind of cool.

Also, I’m writing this from Iowa, which has NO traffic whatsoever but a fuckton of wind.

Music:

What with being on the road and training the minion, I haven’t listened to much new music this month. ๐Ÿ™

Movies & TV:

I’ve actually barely been watching anything at all, which is weird. I did finish Jane by Design and a kdrama called My Princess, which had a good ship. Otherwise, though, I’ve just been reading. I’ve been in the mood to read read read. I blame Tessa Dare.

Reviews Posted:

Favorite book this month HANDS DOWN was The Anatomical Shape of a Heart, which was like a fingersbreadth away from being a five star read. YOU SHOULD ALL READ IT. But, as always, I highly recommend anything 3.5 stars are over. It was a pretty great month for reading actually. ๐Ÿ™‚

DNFs:

I continue to reserve my right to DNF obviously. One of the lessons here is that I need to stop thinking I’ll want to review middle grade. I love a select few and the rest I DNF on like page one. Oops. I also had some audiobook fails, and some books I was really looking forward to that didn’t turn out to be my thing.
