Book Haul & Wrap Up|| March.

Hey!

I’ve been pretty much non-existent here this past month. I just didn’t really have the motivation to blog or even read much. I guess it was kind of an unofficial hiatus from here and it might be this month as well. I try to pick up a book and then I end up putting it back down. I haven’t really been able to focus too much on reading. I’ve been passing time with TV shows and diamond painting instead. I haven’t finished a single book myself since the beginning of February. If I do “read” a book it’s been audiobooks. I did manage to listen to three audiobooks this month, but that’s all of the reading (well listening) I got to in March. It’s almost two weeks into April and I still haven’t picked up a book (or audiobook), sigh. I’m going to try to read a little bit each day even if it’s only a few pages; hopefully that’ll spark something in me that will make me want to read more again!

Today, I am sharing my March wrap up and book haul though! I may not have read anything like I wanted, I still listened to a few audiobooks. I also did do a little book buying. I am combining the posts together since my haul and my wrap up are small. This post is also almost two weeks late, so I want to just get it up. I’ll start with my March book haul and then get into my wrap up after that! You can check out a full list of the books that I own over here. There’s links to different pages on my blog that show my e-books and my physical books. Here are the books that I got in March…

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez
Gallant by V.E. Schwab
The Raven’s Tale by Cat Winters

Final cover.inddfallorplayingforlove

Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith
Fall or, Dodge in Hell by Neal Stephenson
Playing for Love by Jeevani Charika (e-book)

These are the books that I bought in March! I am pretty excited about them all and even more so because I got them all on sale aside from Gallant. There’s a store here that sells books at HUGE discounts and I was able to get them there for under $4.99 each. Fall or, Dodge in Hell scares me though because it’s so HUGE!! It sounded so good though, so I decided to get it. The others are books I’ve seen around and that caught my attention. WIth the prices being so cheap, I decided to get them.

What books did you get in March? Have you read any of the ones that I got?


And now for my wrap up! I’m sad I didn’t read as much as I wanted to, but I’m just glad I was able to finish something even if they were audiobooks. I’m still trying to mostly read books I own and the older the better, so two of the books I listened to are older books that I own. You can find a full list of the books that I read in March and the other books I read throughout the 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. Here are the books that I listened to in March…

spinningsilverthepatientastudyincharlotte

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik – 3 out of 5 stars (Audiobook)
The Patient by Jasper DeWitt – 2 out of 5 stars (Audiobook)
A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro – 4 out of 5 stars (Audiobook)

Spinning Silver was a book that I’ve owned for quite some time, so I decided to finally read it. I bought it awhile ago in a Book of the Month subscription box. I really enjoyed it at the beginning and was having fun with it, but then it started to drag on and I was impatiently waiting for the end to come. Overall, it was good and I liked it. It just started to get a little too boring for me after a while. The Patient is just a random book that I found on my library’s website that sounded interesting. The husband and I had a four hour car ride home from visiting my mom, so I found a book we could listen to together. It was good at the start, but the end was just so dumb and unrealistic with everything else that happened in the book. The ending just didn’t fit with everything else. It was weird and dumb how it ended. I gave it two stars, the husband said he would give it four stars…smh lol. A Study in Charlotte is another book that I’ve owned for a while and decided to finally read. I really liked it and had a lot of fun listening to it. I’m excited to listen to the sequel.

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

That’s all I got for this post. I am going to try find some time this week to catch up with your posts. I’ll have a little extra time to myself this week, so it’ll be nice getting back on here and see how you are doing! 🙂

I hope you have a great day!

  1. Hey Ashley. Nice! The Raven’s Tale looks interesting. And I recently purchased Cursed by Thomas Wheeler and a Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic.

  2. Never beat yourself up for only picking up audiobooks. They take a different kind of concentration than reading. Sometimes I get so in the audiobook zone, it feels weird to pick up a physical book. It’s actually been almost a month since I read a physical book. Whoops. I hope you have a good April ❤

  3. I’m sorry you haven’t been able to pick up too many books lately and hope that feeling will come back to you soon! ❤ I share a lot of your feelings about Spinning Silver! I thought it dragged on a little bit and lost my attention after a while, unfortunately.
    I hope you're having a lovely month! ❤
