As always the year is just flying by! I feel like March just started and now it’s April..aah. So I did pretty amazing as I really didn’t think I would get a lot read this month. My design class is keeping me pretty busy but because of that I have been listening to a lot of audio books and I think that is what saved me this month. 🙂 I read/listened to 21 books for March!!! 14 of those was audiobooks and 7 were ebooks.

I also think I did really good with not going overboard with NG/EW as I only picked up 5 eARC’s for this month which is a real miracle. 🙂 I did get a few more audios, but I can listen to them faster so don’t feels so bad but I get so behind on my eARC’s so for me not to pick up a ton is doing very good!!! 🙂

What I read/listened to in the month of March


Favorite books


Least favorite


Cloak and Dagger

Total for the year I have read 37 books that fit into the mystery/suspense/thriller/crime genres so I feel I am doing pretty good as my goal is 130. 15 of the books I read in the month of March fit this challenge.

Bookish Resolutions
  • Get my netgalley % up 5 to 10 % from what it is now which is horrid.

Failed, it hasn’t moved any….lol. I still have time though!

  • Read 5 or more of my own print books that are looking at me longingly as if they would like to be read. 🙂

I am going to say I have read 1 so far for this challenge as I have Skulduggery Pleasant in print for but listened to it in audio, so technically it’s a book on my shelf. 🙂

  • Catch up on at least two series.

I have caught up on several series so far which I am really proud of but there are some others I would like to catch up on. The ones I have caught up on only have a few books out and I would like to get to some that I have that have at least 4 or 5 books out that I haven’t read.

  • Complete my Goodreads goal (goal to be determined as I am still thinking about that).

This is an on going goal but I feel that I might finish this one as right now I am 12 books ahead. If I keep up doing so well I might up my goal from 150 to 175. We will see how I am doing at the half way mark for the year. 🙂

What I hope to get to read in April
