Hello, Bookish Buddies, and welcome to my March 2017 wrap up! First off, I have a shameful confession to make (I’m sure we all do this, but still). I delayed writing this post in hopes that I could finish one more book in the first days of April to put on here, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen. That being said, let’s get into what I actually did read.
I did not read as much as I hoped to. I only read three books this month, and to be honest, I’m a little disappointed in myself. I could’ve done better.
- Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge – 2.75/5 stars. Review here.
- More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera – 4.5/5 stars. Review here.
- The Last Star by Rick Yancey – 3.5/5 stars. This book was decent. I was kind of over The Fifth Wave series after the first book, though.
For nerds like myself
- 2/3 were from my original TBR
- In total, I read 1090 pages
- That’s about 30 pages per day
- The average length of the books I read was about 363 pages
- I read 1 physical book and 2 audiobooks
- My average rating this month was 3.58/5 stars
Where do I begin? Over the past week or so, I’ve been looking at colleges. I loved 3/4 of them, which is nice. I’ve been studying for the ACT like crazy, because I have to take it on Saturday. I don’t know if they have the ACT or an ACT equivalent in other countries, but it’s basically a waste of four hours of your life on a Saturday morning that somehow dictates your value to colleges. Fun.
And also, Camp NaNoWriMo! For the first time in 3+ years, I have a serious writing project I’m working on! I’m still kind of figuring out the plot, and everything I’ve written up to this point is utter crap, but isn’t that the point? I hope so! Contrary to what I believed when I was writing my first Camp NaNo post, I figured out a basic plot! It’s basically a really dark contemporary about suicide, grief, and mental illness. I’ll get into it in my next Camp NaNo update, so if you’re interested, look out for that!
