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.

alex approximately is a book im really excited for in april!
I’ll have to check it out!
First time visiting. Congratulations on your blogoversary!! My first year was rough and it looks like you are doing so well. I didn’t make much of a gain on my challenges. I’m chipping away at them. Hoping for April showers for all of us. Because more reading!
Thank you for visiting! The first portion of the year is only barely over, so plenty of time for challenges!
I’d choose Too Late by Colleen Hoover. 🙂
I’ve heard so much about her!
Looks like you had a great month! Congrats on your blogoversary! I really can’t wait to pick up Six of Crows. I’ve heard amazing things about it but, I don’t know whether I want to read the Grisha Trilogy first! Happy reading and wishing you the best for April!
I haven’t read the Grisha Trilogy and still really enjoyed it, so I don’t think it’s necessary at all. Thank you!
Congratulations on your blogoversary! Six of Crows lives up to the hype, maybe? Maybe I should finally add it to my TBR, haha.
Thank you! And I think it was really good, even with the hype 😛
Congratulations on your Blogiversary! I haven’t seen the Zoo Keeper’s Wife or read Six of Crows. I’ll have to check it out if it’s really good.
Do and let me know what you think!
