Monthly Recaps

MARCH RECAP // studying, holidays & binge reading

Where did March go? This year is going too fast!

This month has been good. As you can see by the title, I did lots of studying and my grades were wayyyyy better than I expected. Like REALLY good and I’m proud of myself. We’re also on Easter break and I’ve been reading a heck load and bombarding ya’ll with reviews.
Monthly Recap - wrap up
Okay, I read 5 books and 3 novellas (!!). And Goodreads tells me I’m 5 books ahead of schedule. Don’t ask me how I read more in one month when I also had to study how I read more than Jan & Feb combined. None of the books I read have a rating lower than 4 stars so I consider this a very successful month.
 


 

  Opal by Maggie Stiefvater {★★★★★}:  SO. GOOD. I am starved of this world and I need more. A novella isn’t enough!! (review here)
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare {★★★★★}: Of course it was amazing and I will forever gush and be nostalgic about this series. I read it with Lu which was also really fun (review here)
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi {★★★★☆}: As you can see I binged these and had a string of emotions (review here)
Destroy Me by Tahereh {★★★★★}: This was a novella but I ADORED IT. Warner is so amazing and I love him! He is a precious little bean and nobody deserves his little heart (review here)
Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi {★★★★☆}: At this point, I wasn’t really interested in a novella about this certain character but it looked important for the next book so I read it. I enjoyed more than I expected but the first half was just a repeat of the last bit of book 2 so was a little unnecessary (review here)
Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi {★★★★★}: This was honestly just a great finale and is by far the best of the series. SO. FREAKING. GOOD!! (review here)
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken {★★★★★}: A little slow but SO GOOD and VERY underrated. You’ll need to get on and read this if you haven’t yet. I know dystopian is over but like it’s more urban fantasy. And that trailer (!!) I am hyped for the movie and my fave is Liam. He’s a precious little muffin (review here)
Monthly Recap - tbr
 

 

Never Fade & In The Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken: I’m currently reading book 2 and I’ll probably finish the trilogy soon because I NEED TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS
Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian: I have a proof copy for this and it sounds cool so I’d like to read it before it comes out.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell: I’ve just had this urge to read it… don’t ask me why
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi: You’ve probably heard of this book and I’d really like to read it. Not much else to say
Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi: You’re probably why I haven’t read this yet seeing as I just binged the others. Well, the answer is that I don’t want to wait 5ever for the next book so I’m going to put it off but I’ll probably read it soon anyways so it’s on this list.
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo: This is the Topping The TBR March & April book of the month so I have to read it sometime. It’s short and I really love the Grisha world so I’m excited about this.
Illuminae by Amie Kauffman & Jay Kristoff: Literally everybody has been recommending this to me and I think I’m going to audiobook it so this is going to be interesting seeing as it’s also sci-fi which also isn’t my fave
Monthly Recap - Movies & TV Shows
Yeah, so I’ve been watching a HECK ton of movies. Especially Disney. Don’t ask me. I’ve just wanted to rewatch all the Disney classics.
I watched Anastasia which I LOVED! I had to learn Russian history for school so it was even more interesting. I recommend if you haven’t seen it yet.
I’ve started a whole thread of stuff I’ve been watching on Twitter and I’ve been enjoying making aesthetics for them

I’m going to start a feature of reviewing movies I’m watching. I’d do TV but I’ll probably do an individual post for those. Click here for MINI MOVIE REVIEWS // Greatest Showman, Paddington & more
I don’t know if I mentioned it last time but I was watching Grey’s Anatomy but I haven’t watched it in a while. I’ll probably get back to it sometime. I also decided I need Gilmore Girls back in my life so I binged the first season (again) and then just stopped? Idk I’ve had a weird TV month.
I NEED SOME RECOMMENDATIONS PLEASE!!!!

Monthly Recap - random life snippets

  • So I said earlier that my school work was doing well… I am actually shocked with myself. Like they’re mostly As and Bs (?). Wish me luck for exams though *ducks and hides+
  • It’s also been one of those months where you just realise things that may be a bad thing but good for yourself if that makes any sense?
  • I found another YA book by a South African author and I’m living for all these books.
  • There will be a signing but I don’t think I’ll be able to go but we’ll see…
  • I also just realised that I haven’t really used my bullet journal this entire month? But I also didn’t really need it so it’s okay

 

So I guess that’s it. I can’t think of anything else that you guys would like to hear that wouldn’t be boring. So I’d say March was a really good month. LIKE REALLY GOOD.

HOW WAS YOUR MONTH? DID YOU READ ANY GOOD BOOKS? WHAT MOVIES HAVE YOU BEEN WATCHING? I’D LOVE TO KNOW!
