I’m really excited to read these new titles! I’m going to be participating in the Irish Banana Tour for The Way I Used to Be, in which I’ll be coming up with a playlist for you on April 1st (not a joke!) and I’ve heard pretty good things about The Great Hunt and Beyond the Red so I’m excited to dive in.

On the blog:

  • HarperTeen Summer 2016 Blog Tour, in which I’ll be spotlighting We Were Never Here by Jennifer Gilmore! (There will be giveaways!)

IRL:

  • I’m getting my driver’s license (hopefully)! I have it scheduled in mid-March, and I’m desperately hoping I’ll pass.
  • Also, I’m taking a CPR class towards the end of March; it was offered to my volunteering group, so I’m really excited to start!

  1. Awesome wrap-up! It seems you had a great reading month! I’m also looking forward to read Beyond the red and the great hunt. A drop of Night sounds interesting but I’ll wait until I hear your thoughts on it. Happy Reading! 😀

  2. I have heard mixed things about The Great Hunt, I look forward to hear your thoughts if you post a review!
    I’m going to read your review of Burning Glass, I have seen it around but haven’t heard a lot.
    Take The Fall has a beautiful cover!
    Salt to the Sea has been everywhere and I’m dying to read it, I have only heard amazing things about it!
    I’ll check the songs you left up there, which one is the best in your opinion?
