March 2019 Wrap-Up

If you checked out my Planning Ahead for this month, you’ll know I was swamped in March. The majority of my time was taken up launching my new editing business. I’ll be posting more about it soon, but it did mean my time for this blog (and in some respects, reading) was used for better purposes. Here’s what I wanted to read in March (and how I did):

  1. Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James
  2. Awaken Online: Catharsis by Travis Bagwell (Book Club Selection)
  3. The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien (Classic challenge & Fantasy challenge)
  4. Dreyer’s English by Benjamin Dreyer (Self-study)
  5. Gates of Stone by Angus Macallan
  6. The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons
  7. The Wicked King by Holly Black
  8. ReReadAThon TBR

At the start of the month, I was at the beginning of Black Leopard, Red Wolf, and I ended up putting it down for a library book that needed to be returned soon. I never got back around to it. Dreyer’s English is another that I just wasn’t able to wrap up last month, but both are ones I plan getting to in April. I read nothing for the ReReadAThon, despite being a host. And the other books got swapped out (but will be read soon).

Read this month

  1. Educated by Tara Westover
  2. The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 8 by Kieron Gillen
  3. Book Love by Debbie Tung
  4. The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons
  5. The Wicked King by Holly Black
  6. You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero
  7. Awaken Online: Catharsis by Travis Bagwell (Book Club Selection)
  8. The Business of Writing and Editing by Sagan Morrow
  9. The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie

It was a good month filled with a variety of genres (and star ratings). I felt like I was close to a slump during The Ruin of Kings. It took me a while to finish it, and if it hadn’t been for a couple graphic novels, I am not sure I would have read more than five books. Sorry that I am not going into detail on thoughts on them! I just wanted to share what I read, but I just don’t have the time for a deep dive.

Did not finish

There were no books I put aside this month!

Added tbr

  • The Queen’s Poisoner by Jeff Wheeler
  • The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal

With all the action in March, I didn’t add many books to my TBR. Although that may mean I can actually start making a dent in the list.

What are you interested in reading for April? I’d love to hear about some of the books you’ve read recently.
