March Wrap Up

Wrap Up

Hello, happy March 31st! Today would have been Charlie’s birthday. He was a sweetie.

On a happier note I actually did get some reading done this month, which is neat.

Books

Prince’s Gambit and King’s Rising by C. S. Pacat

Prince's Gambit by C.S. PacatKings Rising by C.S. PacatThese baby books got me out of my reading slump! I’m still not up to my normal pace but I’m getting there! I loved this series. I’m fully aware it deals with problematic topics but occasionally, when written write, I’m totally trash for it. Don’t ask me why, I know it’s awful. But seriously I loved these, they were great.

Both 5/5 stars

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

Elantris by Brandon SandersonThis was my first dip into Sanderson’s work and I rather enjoyed it. I did have a few issues with it though, as detailed further in my blabber on the graphic audio.

3.5/5 stars

 

Herding Cats by Sarah Anderson

Herding Cats by Sarah AndersenThis is my latest purchase, just came out a few days ago. I had to pick it up after enjoying Adulthood is a Myth and Big Mushy Happy Lump by Anderson as well. I liked it just as much as its predecessors. 😀

4/5 stars

Other Things

My cat passed away on the 26th. He would have been 13 years old today. His name was Charlie and he was the sweetest pea. He loved everyone ever. He would have liked you, too. I’m going to miss him.

I saw Black Panther, Annihilation, and Game Night. I really enjoyed all three of them, but honestly I still have no idea what to make of Annihilation though. I liked it but it was totally weird.

Toys R Us is closing in the US. So I went out and bought Zelda Monopoly at a discount price. hoo-ha

Blog Goals

  • Post seasonal (not monthly) book hauls

Winter book haul posted! Spring will be done at the end of June!

I fell into a slump in February. In March I’ve been slowly getting back to it but I’m not there yet!

  • Keep my To Do list of pending tags under five items at any one time

Currently it’s at zero! Caught up!

Not done! :”D I’ll do it soon though.

  • Write blabbers for at least 1/3 of the books I read

3 out of the 7 books I’ve read so far have gotten blabbers!


Personal Goals

Haven’t maintained this one. I think I need to find something I consider fun to do!

  • Log all meals in MyFitnessPal

Mostly doing this one. I’ve missed the last couple days though

  • Make a wedding/honeymoon scrapbook

Haven’t even started, homes.

  • Make a budget
