Hey all, Dani here.
Wow, where did March go? Seriously. I am trying to figure out how we are 25% through 2018 already. Time is flying by so quickly now, and that is crazy to me.
Anyway, let’s just jump into what I read in the month of March. As always, if I have a review already posted on my blog, I will include the link to that post just in case you missed it or want to check it out. I’m working on clearing out my backlog of reviews so expect many more in the upcoming months.

Overall not a bad month, though I probably could have and should have read more Middle Grade novels.
All right. Well with the wrap up complete, it is time to move on to my March book haul. There were a lot of great releases in March, so obviously I ended up getting quite a few books, but overall I didn’t go overboard and have a massive haul, which is nice. This is the part where I share my book haul photos and then show off my monthly OwlCrate unboxing–and spoiler alert: I loved this month’s box.
Seriously, I managed to get through the month only buying a handful of books. That is pretty impressive.
I’ve always wondered if I would like an infinity scarf or not, and now that I have one, I can honestly say that I rather like it. Oh, and this OwlCrate edition of Heart of Iron is so lovely. I mean, did you see the purple stained pages? So awesome. I got the Hanna Donnelly candle, but apparently there was a Kady Grant one as well. The mug is pretty great too; I’m excited to have another mug in the same size/style as the Harry Potter one from a couple months ago. Oh, and the book is actually signed this month, instead of just being a signed book plate. OwlCrate, you guys are doing wonderful things with your subscription box. I’m glad to be a subscriber. And I’m looking forward to the April box as well, because yet again the book is one on my highly anticipated list, which is excellent.
Finally, I suppose it is time to share my April TBR. Now I’ve done okay with my TBRs so far this year, reading typically around half or so of the books I mention, so I’m feeling decent about continuing to share the books I’d like to read in the month. Plus, the next session of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon will be taking place on April 28th, so I’m thinking it should be a pretty good month of reading. But as usual, the readathon TBR will be up closer to the event, because I may change my mind on what I’m reading for the day. Actually I’m kind of hoping I can convince my fiance to participate in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon with me.
Anyway, here is my tentative April TBR.
Of course the TBR can always change, grow, and/or shrink based on my reading mood. But there are a few of these that I really want to read, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to do it.
Then again, I’m also trying to get back into writing, so I am doing Camp NaNoWriMo in April as well. I’ve set a really low goal of writing 10,000 words on my novel over the course of the month, and hopefully I’ll be able to accomplish that while also keeping up with my reading.
I hope you all had wonderfully productive reading months in March. And if you feel like talking books with me in the comments, let me know what book you are most looking forward to reading in April.
