Another month ends – another wrap-up appears! March was an okay reading month – better than January, but nowhere near as good as February!
Mental Health Monday:
Top 5 Recommendation:
- 100 books – I have read 45 books so far this year – I imagine by April I’ll be over the halfway mark! I am very impressed with myself this year.
- Continue to read diversely – I didn’t read as many diverse books as I wanted to this month, but I did read a couple with characters of different religions – Internment, A Very Large Expanse of Sea, and You Asked for Perfect. Out of the Blue also had a lesbian MC and a LI with cystic fibrosis.
- Read more independently published/self-published authors – None this month, I’m afraid. Whoops!
- Try to read more genres – I mainly read fantasy and contemporary this month, with one dystopia and one short story collection.
- Try to re-read a childhood favourite once a month – I re-read Redwall by Brian Jacques.
- Try to read one graphic novel a month – Yes, I read Bloom by Kevin Panetta and Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, Vol. 2.
- Try to post three times a week – I did pretty well on this front, except for last week.
- New goal: Increase Netgalley score – MY NETGALLEY SCORE WENT DOWN?! I need to stop requesting ARCs.
Every month I’m also going to update you with what books I’ve read for YARC (Year of the Asian Challenge!). This month I read: Internment, A Very Large Expanse of Sea, The Poppy War, and Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, Vol. 2 bringing my total up to 7.
- Continued with therapy – I had a really
- Planned at least one exciting thing a month – I had planned to see Victoria Schwab in London this month, but unfortunately I had a couple really bad mental health days and had to miss it. That was pretty disappointing but my friend Ines got me a signed copy of The Near Witch, which was lovely of her! However, I did get engaged, so that’s probably enough excitement for one month!!
