March Wrap-Up Post

Posted April 5, 2012 by Kara in Uncategorized / 0 Comments

Okay, so I’m a little behind with my wrap-up post this month, which is fine because I have some bad news. I’ve read like absolute sh*t this month. First of all, I was gone a week in Florida and not updating my blog. I only got one book read that month. And then the rest of the time I was catching up on review books and getting distracted. A lot. So my challenge progress really, REALLY sucked this month. But I’ve already buckled down and I am kicking April’s ass. So hopefully I have much better news for you in my April wrap-up post.

I had an amazing time in Florida. So amazing that we are almost fully trying to focus on finding jobs in Florida so we can move there sooner than we had planned. I’m not sure how that will all pan out, but we are really trying hard to get there and make it happen. Florida is my home. And I just want to get home. Where I feel comfortable. Where my friends are. So, as soon as Dan gets back from being deployed, that’s what we will be focusing on. I may have to get a part-time job to supplement our income (besides my editing), and I have already told him that I am more than willing to do this.

That’s my news for March. I can’t wait to get back to manuscript editing in April. I have two planned.

On to the (LOUSY) challenge updates!

For the Debut Author Challenge, I have completed 2 books for the month of March.  The books I read are:

~ Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
~Slide by Jill Hathaway
Clicking on the links takes you to my reviews. I don’t have one for Shadow and Bone yet because it’s still a bit early to post my review. But I loved that book and it got a 5 star rating for me. Stay tuned to this blog because I will be giving a copy away closer to the release date.
For the TBR Pile Challenge, I only completed 1 book in the month of March. And the book was The Juliet Club by Suzanne Harper. And it was TERRIBLE. That book earned a lovely 1 star rating from me. I’m really trying to blow through my review books, so my progress on this challenge is slow going. I figure I can always make a push for it at the end of the year if I have issues staying caught up. 

~The Juliet Club by Suzanne Harper
Clicking on the links takes you to my review of that book.
Again, I did terrible on the 50 States Challenge during the month of March. Only one book. Everything I seemed to read was international or fantasy. Which was cool, but not helpful. Hopefully April will be better. The book was

I already posted my link for this review above.
As for my totals, I read 9 books in the month of March. And that is awful. It has put me behind in all my challenges, and WAY behind in my Goodreads challenge. This month is all about catching up.
As always, if you have a wrap-up post you want to tell me about or have me come comment on, leave me the link in the comments. And if you just feel like saying “hi,” that would be great too. Have a great April!!
