Wrap Up|| March.

wrapup

Hey!

I mentioned in my previous blog post that March was a rough month for me. The entire situation with COVID-19 has brought me so down, as I am sure it has for so many other people in the world. I already have hella anxiety about so many things and have been feeling down about life in general for months now, so throwing this into the mix has messed with me so badly. It’s been hard for me to focus on anything, especially reading. My reading and my blogging took a really bad hit in March because my mental health just hasn’t been there. I haven’t really been sleeping that great either, so there’s that too. I was really disappointed in myself as well that I didn’t read as much as I would have liked, but my mind has been elsewhere. Animal Crossing: New Horizons came out on March 20th though and that has been a light for me, so I’ve been escaping there. I am really crossing my fingers that April is a better month on all fronts.

Anyway though, here is my March wrap up. You can find a full list of these books and the other books I read this year over here. All will be linked to Goodreads below and I will also link to individual blog posts for them if I did a review.

Physically Read Books:
These are the books that I read myself (not audiobooks) throughout the month March.

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett – 4 out of 5 stars
Infinity Son by Adam Silvera – 2 out of 5 starsReview
Wild at Heart by K.A. Tucker – 3 out of 5 stars

I finally read Starry Eyes and it was such a great book. I had so much fun reading it, it was cute, and I really enjoyed the characters. Infinity Son was a pretty bad let down for me and I only thought it was “okay”. There were some things that I liked and some things that were surprising, but it just didn’t live up to my expectations and didn’t blow me away. I was so excited to read Wild at Heart, but sadly it wasn’t as great as the first book. I was bummed out about that. I also couldn’t really stand Calla this time around. She bugged me so much for some reason. Overall, I gave the book three stars because while I didn’t love it, I still liked it and was happy with the ending.

What books did you read in March? Have you read any of the books that I read? Feel free to link me to you wrap up post, so I can check it out!

There were a few other books on my March TBR that I never got a chance to read because I was (and still am) in this huge reading slump all month. Hopefully, I can get the chance to read those soon. I’m trying to just take it easy and not set too many expectations for myself right now (especially not a set TBR) until I get out of this weird headspace and out of this reading slump. I think I just need to focus on other things more right now or I may just completely lose my mind. :/ I will catch up with your entries at some point today or tomorrow. I’m not feeling good today, so I am just taking it easy.

In case you missed it;

I hope you have a great day!

  1. I loved Starry Eyes when I read it. I still need to read Wild at Heart. People either seem to love it or find it just okay. I haven’t seen any haters yet at least. I’m sorry you’ve been so down. I get it. I live in WA state, so it’s been dictating my life for like 3 weeks now. It’s very stressful and sad. I go between moments of anxiety and calm. I just finally got back into reading this week. I hope you get back on track soon.

    • Yeah, I’ve seen quite a few people that weren’t really that thrilled with Wild at Heart and even some that DNF it. It really is stressful and sad. I’m sorry that you’re going through moments of anxiety too. It really sucks and I just want it to end! I’m glad you finally got back into reading. I think I may be getting back into it a little bit. Finished my first book yesterday and while it did take me six days to read, at least it was 6 days versus two weeks like last month!

  2. I think it is a wonderful idea to take things as easy as you can and only do what makes you happy right now. I am still working but when I’m home I am playing a lot sims and spending as much time as I can with my wife. If other things don’t get done, so be it.

  3. I feel you, hun ❤ I don't usually suffer from anxiety but Febr and March were really tough months. I'm glad that Animal Crossing helped a bit 🙂 It sounds like a lot of fun, and now that everyone is playing it, I feel like I need to get myself a Switch too. Lol

    Aprill will be much better, I'm sure of it! ❤

  4. Staying in always sounded so appealing to me, and now I can’t wait to go out and do stuff again. This past month has been really hard, and I feel the same way as you.
    Honestly though, I think reading 3 books is very impressive! 3 book a month is pretty much my normal amount! 🙂
    I really hope you’ll feel better and that all of this will be over soon. In the meantime, stay safe! ❤

  5. I totally feel you! ❤ No need to feel bad about anything, just take things slow and focus on the little things that can make you feel better right now… Take care and give those cute pets a hug from me! xx

  7. Hi Ashley! So sorry to hear that you’ve been having a hard time this month. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself – self care comes first! But I still think 3 books in a month is pretty impressive by my standards! I hope April feels a bit brighter for you – take care ❤️ X x x

  9. It’s been such a hard situation lately. I’m sending you all the love and hugs and positive vibes and hope that your anxiety doesn’t spike too much. I’m always here for you if you ever want to talk or rant or just change your mind, sending you lots of love ❤ ❤
    I'm really happy you liked Starry Eyes, Jenn Bennette writes the best books ❤
    Take care of yourself! ❤
