I was doing SO well. I was averaging about 2 books off of my list a month for the first two months and felt like I was owning this challenge, and then March happened.
I only read one book off of my list guys. One. Book. This isn’t to say that I didn’t have a fantastic reading month (I read somewhere between 7 and 9 books, which is CRAZY for me but YAY spring break!) but I kind of got off task. I went to the library multiple times and just went a little crazy because money is tight and I wanted to splurge (and there is nothing like free splurging!).
So the 1 book that I read…
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo completed 03/07/2016
This is definitely why I didn’t read anything else. I got stuck in a Grisha binge. I absolutely adore this series now and I just had to keep on reading. I loved the characters, the world, and the pacing of the book. The swoons were pretty good too. I just loved reading this book. I am so sad that it took me so long to get to. I was definitely eyeing this one when I used to work at a library back home and just never got around to it. MISTAKE! Well, maybe not. I am so curious how any of you survived the wait for the rest of the series.
So basically, that’s it. That’s all I accomplished. I guess I still read 1 from the list, which is a good thing. Here’s my list in case you can’t remember what is on it.
So…what’s coming up in April you may ask…
- The Rose Society by Marie Lu: I believe this is a buddy read but I can’t find my list anywhere soooo BUDDY! I am prepared to read this with you! I am sorry I lost my list!
- Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers: I am just itching to give this one a go, so I hope that I get to it in April!
Other than that I am going to just wing it. I realize that having plans just doesn’t always work for me. Hopefully I read at least 2 in April, but we’ll see.
How are your 2016 reading goals coming along?
