March 2023 Round Up

March 2023 Review Round Up

Is it just me, or did March take FOREVER to pass? And yet, I only finished 4 books for review!

5 ⭐️

Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood (AUDIOBOOK)

4 ⭐️

Mr. & Mrs. Witch by Gwenda Bond (E-ARC)

3 ⭐️

Rich People Problems (Crazy Rich Asians #3) by Kevin Kwan
Home in Carolina (Sweet Magnolias #5) by Sherryl Woods

March was sort of light on reviewed books, but I actually spent a chunk of it reading a huge 100k+ book submission for the indie publishing house I work for, Fire & Ice YA Books, which ate up a good amount of my lunchtime reading.

I also listened to a non-fiction audiobook, The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well by Meik Wiking. This didn’t justify a review on the blog, but you can check out my thoughts on Goodreads if you so desire.

Currently, I’m working my way through my NetGalley backlog (I wish I could read quicker!) I have a ways before the next book is published so I can work on some of the titles with release dates I missed, so that’s something!

At the time of this posting I am reading:
– Lucky by Jackie Collins (Print)
– Throwback by Maurene Goo (E-ARC)
…and that’s it! I finished my audiobook (Big Boned by Meg Cabot) today and am waiting for one of my library holds to come in, so I can start another.

And in OTHER NEWS, I’ve been re-reading my novel, Something I’m Good At, and taking notes so I can get to work on the sequel. (4 years later! Yikes!)

February 2023 Round Up

February 2023 Monthly Round Up

February is a short month, but I still managed to cram 4 and a half books into the month! (Sorry, I don’t count comic strip/graphic novels as a full book because it takes significantly less time to read!)

5 ⭐️

Book Lovers by Emily Henry (AUDIOBOOK)
The Last Beekeeper by Julie Carrick Dalton (NetGalley E-ARC)

4 ⭐️

Pusheen the Cat’s Guide to Everything by Claire Belton (NetGalley E-ARC)

3 ⭐️

Shelter Mountain (Virgin River #2) by Robyn Carr (AUDIOBOOK)
Spare by Prince Harry (AUDIOBOOK)

February was a very good book month for me. Both my Five Stars were absolutely amazing. The Last Beekeeper especially blew me away, which was awesome because I requested that book from NetGalley on a whim, not having any preconceived opinions of it. Despite being nothing alike, aside from romance novels, Book Lovers gave me similar feels to The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood.

Even my 3 star reads weren’t a total disappointment, I got some enjoyment or new food for thought from each of them, even if they didn’t hold my attention as well as I’d hoped.

I’m really looking forward to March now! February is going to be a tough month to follow, but I supposed it’ll all depend upon which audiobooks come in from my library holds!

At the time of writing this I am reading:
Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood (AUDIOBOOK) Can she do it again? The Love Hypothesis is going to be a tough act to follow!
Mastering The Art of French Murder by Colleen Cambridge (Print Book ARC)
Mr. & Mrs. Witch by Gwenda Bond (E-ARC)
