Monthly Wrap-Up: March Wrap-Up and Looking Forwards

The first quarter of the year is already over, and I’m so excited for the rest of it. The beginning of a year always feels like a time of waiting: waiting for summer, waiting for plans to unfold, waiting for the rest of the year to happen. As winter lingers, the waiting gets tiring, and I don’t think I’m the only one who feels the need to clean away all the cobwebs that have gathered over the winter.

I struggled to read throughout the month. I started over twenty books, and most of them didn’t stick. One book was a DNF (Did not finish), and I was able to finish 11 of the novels.

1.     Home for Christmas by Camilla Isley

2.     Little Bird by Tiffany Meuret

3.     Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves by Meg Long

4.     How Do I Un-Remember This? by Danny Pellegrino

5.     Archenemies by Marissa Meyer

6.     Reclaim the Stars edited by Zoraida Córdova

7.     Queen of the Tiles by Hanna Alkaf

8.     Gallant by V.E. Schwab

9.     Be a Good Ancestor by Leona Prince

10.  The Voyage of Freydis by Tamara Goranson

11.  The Heart Breaker by Cathryn Fox

Most of them are from Netgalley and a good amount of them haven’t been published yet. My favourite was Gallant. It’s a story that haunts your mind long after the end comes. My full review of the novel will be out soon.

There were a number of three star reviews this month that aren’t worth mentioning here, but you can head on over to my Goodreads to read my short reviews of them if you’d like.

I was able to write a few more chapters of my novel during March as well. But everything I tried to do, both writing and otherwise, seemed to be difficult for me to get through. I was able to figure out something that I believe will help. I stepped back from one of the projects I’ve been a part of for the last year. It became a stress, which wasn’t the intention, and I realized I needed to step away in order to pursue my own dreams. Those dreams being my novel and this blog, which has been falling apart recently.

Overall, March wasn’t the best month, but it went by fast. I feel like the waiting is over now. It’s time to get things started. I’ve been cleaning and setting things up and now I can step forward into springtime with vigor.
