March ’19 wrap-up and April TBR

Good morning bookworms!

We are officially less than 9 months out from 2020. Which is not only insane, but very surreal. This year is going far too quickly!!

March wrap-up

So, in last month’s wrap-up I was laughing it up about having a mid-year slump… and then I had a mini slump. What are the odds?! I mean, it’s entirely possible that I jinxed myself, but how often does that really happen?

Anyway, graphic novels have saved my butt this month, pulling me through to a total of 11 books. (At this rate I’ll not only hit my secret goal of 100, I’ll pull in somewhere around 110… I’ve never officially gone more than 20 over my GR goal. This could be so exciting!)

April TBR

Ok, you may have noticed I did a ‘magical read-a-thon’ TBR post the other day. This doubles up as my April TBR, so if you want to have a read, you should hover your mouse over here and do the clickies thing.

OWLS READ-A-THON TBR

Fave posts

So, there were some pretty amazing posts out there this month. These are three of my faves that I saw:

Other in March

Some other stuff I came across this month that I really enjoyed were:

  • Sucker by the Jonas Brothers. I know, I know. BUT, I never really listened to them when they were around the first time so I was staying away this time. But I heard it and now I am addicted.
  • I also finally listened to the entire Reputation album by Taylor Swift (seriously, you’d never know that I normally listen to FOB, MCR, Mayday Parade and Karnivool on a regular basis). Anyway, I discovered New Year’s Day, and I am OBSESSED. I don’t even know why. I think I’m getting soft in my old age.
  • As you may have noticed, I was home sick for a couple of days… or a week. And during this time, I binge watched a lot of Veronica Mars reruns. I’ve only got about 10 episodes to go, plus the movie and I might even reread the two books – all to get me totally up to speed for the ANNOUNCEMENT of the show’s return. If you’ve never watched it before, but you like Jessica Jones, I recommend giving this a go. I mean, Veronica doesn’t have superpowers, but she’s badass, great with a camera, and there’s a couple of episodes with Krysten Ritter too. (Also some mad love triangles – I am #teamlogan all the way.)

Until next time, happy reading! 😊📚

  1. It’s so amazing that you managed to read so much when you were in a slump, even if they were graphic novels! Audiobooks are definitely saving my reading goal since I’m not physically reading as much at the moment. I hope we both get through our tbrs for April, happy reading!

    1. Thanks Cailin!! I want to love audiobooks so much, but I get so distracted when I listen to them – I like to pretend I’m a multitasker, but I’m really a failure at it all!! 😭
      Good luck with your TBR too!! 💕

    1. Thanks Marie!!!! Emergency Contact was everything I didn’t even know I needed in a book!!!! TBWSH was also a highly anticipated read for this year and it did not disappoint!!! All so good. (My recommendation is to have a lot of caramel and/or brownies on hand when you read because this book makes you crave them!!) xx
