March has been a good month overall, but not a good one when it comes to reading. The monster we call a reading slump attacked me for the first time since 2015 and kept me from touching a book for two weeks… But luckily I made it out alive!
Without further ado, here is my March wrap-up!
❥ WHAT I READ
As I said, March hasn’t been the best of month when it comes to reading. Indeed, I was in a huge slump, which I haven’t experienced in many, many years. This resulted in me not touching a book for two weeks, which really saddened me. In the end I read 7 books, for a total of only 2336 pages (my judgment is based on my own reading habits, not on anyone else’s).
Overall I mostly read romance novels (3) but also got back to fantasy (3) and had to read a classic for work. I also read one middle grade books, 2 YA ones but I sticked to the adult genre (4) as I have been doing for a few months now. I also mostly read “meh” books, resulting in me giving mostly 3 stars (3) but I also gave two 4 stars next to non rating 2 books. Other than that I mostly read physically this month (4 books vs 3 ebooks) and re-read one book, read 3 new releases and 3 backlisted novels.
Here is what I read:
- Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron, 3/5 stars
- Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare, 4/5 stars
- Crazy Stupid Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams, 4/5 stars
- Make Up Break Up by Lily Menon, 3/5 stars
- Acte Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert, 3.5/5 stars
- Sacrées Sorcières by Roald Dahl, non-rated (French graphic novel)
- and one book for work.
❥ WHAT I LOVED
- Going to Paris while I could
We are currently in lockdown with our schools closed for four weeks, but in March I could still go out and enjoy some time out in Paris. One day we went to the city with my best friend only to walk around and to buy pastries, and it was the best. I already miss my beautiful Paris and cannot wait to go back once it’s all safer.
- Making real friends at work
I already talked about it in my previous wrap up, but I made some friends at work, which I hung out with a lot in March. It feels good to finally feel as if I fit in somewhere, which is something I never experienced before, and it makes me super happy. Even though schools are closed, I still see some of my friends because they live close to my place and it’s the best.
- Feeling happier every day
Overall I’ve been feeling more and more myself every day, and now I simply feel happy. It was hard to get used to living alone, to a new apartment, to a new life style, but now that I did I’m so happy to be alive.
❥ CHECKING ON MY MARCH GOALS
In March I wanted to get back to my blog and YT channel, which I didn’t really do, but I’m doing it now at least. I also wanted to read again, which was a fail, but I wanted to simply feel happy and free, and that I did, which was the most important goal I had.
❥ WHAT I WANT TO DO IN APRIL
In April I want to:
- Get back to reading,
- Get back to all my socials,
- Stay true to myself,
- And to go for a run every two days.
And that’s all!
