That’s right, believe it or not, March is over. We’re somehow a third of the way into 2016… What?? I actually completely missed my February wrap up because it came so soon, but I’m on top of things this month! Here’s how my month went…
I did a pitiful amount of reading this month, since I seem to be in a nearly endless reading slump. I only got four and a bit books read! Maybe that’s not too terrible, but for someone who usually reads six or seven a month, this is pretty bad.
First, I revisited my childhood and read Charlotte’s Web, and reviewed it here. I only gave it three stars; some children’s books need to stay only for children. Next, I read The Invention of Wings, and reviewed it here. I read Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, and reviewed it here. I gave it a terrible rating of only three stars, which is disappointing considering how much I loved the movie. Finally, I read Harry Potter and the Chamber Secrets as part of #HPReread2016. I already reviewed it the last time I read it, so I’m still trying to work out how to review it this time. The book I’m currently reading is the Prisoner of Azkaban, because I’m still running behind in the re-read! I’m just really disorganised at the moment…
You might remember at the beginning of the year when I signed up for way too many challenges. I updated you on how I was doing at the end of January, and here’s how I’m doing two months later!
The E-Book Challenge. In January, I had 5/12 complete, which was amazing. This month I haven’t done nearly as well. I’ve read Othello, for school, and Five Wounds. That only gets me up to 7/12 complete.
The Flights of Fantasy Challenge went a lot better than the e-book challenge this month. I’ve read the BFG, Charlotte’s Web, and Harry Potter, with another Harry Potter being read at the moment. That gets me up to 8/10 complete, so I think I’ll have to increase my goal at the end of next month!
Rock My TBR is still going really well! All but one of the nine books I’ve read worked for the challenge, which gets me up to 14/12. Woo hoo, one challenge completed already!!! But technically, I’m aiming for one a month, so I’ll still stick to that goal, and just see how many I get read.
Finishing the Series still doesn’t seem to be going too well… Why do I read so many standalones?? I’m getting there with the Harry Potter series, and that’s the only books that have counted towards the challenge!
Finally, the dreaded Popsugar challenge… In January, I’d completed 8/50. Now, I’m up to …
- Unfamiliar culture – Five Wounds
- YA Bestseller – The Fault In Our Stars
- Finish in a day – BFG
- At least 100 years older than you – Othello
- Recommended by family – P.S. I Love You
- Haven’t read since primary school – Charlotte’s Web
- Oprah’s Book Club – The Invention of Wings
- Blue cover – Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist
So that’s 16/50 complete, woo hoo! Yeah, it’s mostly just the easy ones, but I promise I’ll start on the hard ones soon
This term at school as been a little chaotic in terms of assessments. Right now, as I’m writing this, I’m meant to be doing three different assessments that are all due in the next couple of weeks… It hasn’t been all bad though! I’ve been learning to drive, which is pretty stressful, but something I’m proud of. And most importantly, I came out as bi, which was hard but an amazing feeling 😀
How was your March? Did you get more read than me? What was your favourite book you read this month?
