Welcome to today’s March Wrap Up. March has got to have been the busiest month so far on the blog. I celebrated my one year blogiversary this month. This monthly wrap up post will feature an update to my challenges, my favorite book of the month, and some posts you may have missed. So tune in, because this month, there’s also a giveaway section!
Big Events – Blogiversary
I celebrated my one year birthday with a bang: six guest posts and three giveaways. Celebrating with my blogging friends and the whole community was amazing. A special thank you this to month to them (I’ll link their posts for you): Green Tea & Paperbacks, Reader and Proud, A Kernel of Nonsense, FLYLēF, Foxes and Fairytales, and Alba in Bookland. Find the giveaways at the end of this post.
I am in a few different challenges and have signed up for a new one as well! In terms of discussion posts I posted two: my favorite book formats and how to make a content calendar. For diversity I posted two Spotlight Thursdays #3 and #4 and reviewed 3 diverse books: Wish Me Home, Dreadnought, and Six of Crows. From Netgalley I read: The Roanoke Girls, Saint’s Blood, and Dreadnought. From Edelweiss, Wages of Sin, and First to Read: The Idiot, and The Wanderers. I also received a few books from authors: To Dream, Wish Me Home, and Bender.
For April I entered into another challenge where we have to read as many advance read copies as we can. Find out my to read list here.
My Favorite Book This Month
This is a tough one, isn’t every month? I have to go with Six of Crows. I am unbelievably tempted to say Saint’s Blood, because that is my favorite Greatcoats book so far. But I used Traitor’s Blade last month! Every month that De Castell comes out with a new book would just be a bit excessive wouldn’t it?
But I really loved that one…so it’s a tie between them. What I loved the most about Six of Crows is that it lived up the hype! I was hearing so much about it all the time so I finally asked for it for my birthday and read it. I really enjoyed it. What I loved most about Saint’s Blood was the fact that we get to know the characters even more so than before. Our relationships with them as so deep, so personal, that reading this book was just fantastic.
