Monthly Recap: March 2017

Hi everyone! Today I’ll be reviewing what I read, what I reviewed, and other IRL things that’s been going on! I think this month I finally slowly got out of my blogging and reading slump, so I’m super excited to get back into the hang of things.

I’m actually super surprised with how many books I ended up reading over the course of this month. I haven’t read 8 books in a month in such a long time, so this makes me very happy.

  2. Reading 8 books in a month is a lot according to me, so great job Alice!! Keep the reading going! ❤ Also, this month was a pretty average month for me, as I read 4 books (surprising because, I had a freaking lot of doomsdays this month*aka examinations 😂*)However, if I keep going at this rate, goodreads says I can complete my reading challenge(which btw, is also 50 books*yaay twins*) So, I’m just hoping to get a good sum of reading in the coming month because summer hols are on their way *won’t you come along soon?* 😂

  3. Great recap, Alice! It sounds like you had a lovely March. 😀
    I’m currently reading The Bone Witch, and though the writing is beautiful, I don’t feel very engaged with the story yet. But, I’m going to give it a chance – I’m looking forward to see how Tea will develop (I’m 20% in)!
