March 2019 Wrap Up

One-third of the way through the year and I’m one-third of the way through my Goodreads Reading Goal!  I took part in the #Hamilthon Reading Challenge this month and (mostly) completed it.  It was a great excuse to read some backlist books, and I’m really proud of the books I was able to move from TBR to Read.

After some consideration, I’m going to retire my Quarterly Bingo Challenge.  As much as I liked the idea, it’s been too hard to try and work in reads around my ARC schedule.  I like the categories I created and definitely want to keep them in mind, but I’m not going to be stressing about it.

Great Series Read Project

This month, I started two new series that have been on my list, SIX OF CROWS and THE WORMWOOD Trilogy.  I’ve set CROOKED KINGDOM to be next month’s task and I’ll check this duology off my list! While ROSEWATER didn’t click all the way with me, the ending was such that I want to return to it after a break, so I’m tentatively putting it on the books for June, since May will be all fantasy reads for Wyrd and Wonder.
