March ’18 wrap-up and April TBR

OMG, how the hell are we in April already? I still haven’t done my book haul post or unboxed any boxes I got in March and I haven’t even edited the February videos!! Where has the year gone?!

So, this month saw me attend the Obsidio book launch in Melbourne, and having a ginormous 16 books signed by the dynamic duo (no, not all were for me, but most were). I also changed jobs and got a pay-rise (yay!), and the month went by so quickly I don’t even know what happened!

March wrap-up

So, some of these were novellas, but I’m still counting them because Goodreads does!






Rating (/10)

Gemina Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff The Illuminae Files (#2) Paperback


Fence C. S. Pacat Fence (Issue #4) Comic


Opal Maggie Stiefvater The Raven Cycle (#4.5) eBook


Blood, Teeth and Bones M. E. Vaughan The Harmatia Cycle (#2.1) eBook


The Hazel Wood Melissa Albert The Hazel Wood (#1) Hardback


Obsidio Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff The Illuminae Files (#3) Paperback



In saying the above, some of these books (mostly Gemina and Obsidio… actually, just those two) are over 600 pages each. Yes, I know that the format means that you aren’t actually reading 600 pages if it was just normally typed, as in not like a dossier; however, I wouldn’t have to turn the page over 300 times if that were the case too.

April TBR

I haven’t actually thought about a TBR for April yet (she says at the end of 1st April… no jokes). I mean, I should probably read The Last Namsara because I was meant to buddy-read it with a friend and I read like, 4 chapters then I put it down because Obsidio, and I only finished that yesterday (life is hectic – no judgement!), so that should probably go on there…

I also think I’m going to throw some more contemporaries on the list to give myself a break from dragons and space and magic – it happens every now and again. It’s like a cleanse. So, I guess if I’m staring at my shelves (which I am), my April TBR should go something like this:

  • The Last Namsara – Kristen Ciccarelli
  • A Love Oz YA Anthology – edited by Danielle Binks
  • The Names They Gave Us – Emery Lord
  • Turtle All the Way Down – John Green
  • Daughter of the Pirate King – Tricia Levenseller
  • Daughter of the Siren Queen – Tricia Levenseller


If I get the last two done, then I also have an email from Tricia with a file called “DotSQ Ridens Chapter Final” (and I can’t open it because I haven’t read DotSQ yet and I’m terrified of spoilers). I’m also expecting Fence issue #5 to land on my doorstep this month, so expect that in there too.

Happy reading 🙂
