March Wrap Up

I feel like I should acknowledge that March was rough for me and that making content was really difficult. I’m not sure that April will be better, but I’ve already got my copy of People We Meet on Vacation from Book of the Month Club and April 6th has three of my most highly anticipated books coming out, so I am hoping April actually will be better. Let’s ignore that I’m pinning my hopes on books and not, like, I don’t know, things improving life wise. But!! I am fully vaccinated and will soon be two weeks past that and then, at the very least, I can eat lunch with my other vaccinated coworkers instead of working through lunch every single day. So, maybe life will also get better. Anyway, all that to say, I did read some books in March that are definitely worth going over so let’s get to this wrap up, shall we?

Favorite Books of the Month

I absolutely adored Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert because it is such a perfect romantic comedy. It’s actually so funny and brilliant and perfect in every way. I cannot make my mind up about which Brown Sister is my favorite and have decided I refuse to choose.

Additionally, this month, I have fallen head first down a Lorraine Heath rabbit hole and I have no regrets. Scoundrel of My Heart was the perfect book for me. I acquired my physical final copy today and am strongly tempted to start a reread…

ICYMI: My March Posts

Posts from Around the Internet I’ve Loved

  • Pilar wrote a blog post about 13 of the Best Quotes from Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert
  • Here’s some commissioned art of Xeni and Mason that Rebekah Weatherspoon shared on Twitter
  • I really appreciated this review of Always Only You by Chloe Liese from Alyssa for Smexy Books.
  • Melinda and Melanie’s deep dives on the Psy Changeling series are absolutely everything and I loved this post on Caressed by Ice so much.
  • So, basically, I love Nick’s entire Instagram, but I just needed to share this pairing specifically of All the Feels by Olivia Dade and this adorable cake. Speaking of Nick, she has a post where she revealed the cover of Sweet Talk by Cara Bastone and there’s a snippet of the audio!
  • Also, speaking of Nick and adding in Ari, the two teamed up to write a really important post pointing out that although started with good intentions, The Ripped Bodice’s Diversity Report really needs to make improvements to do what they allege their goal is. Then TRB responded, but just save yourself and know that it’s not a good response and will make your blood pressure sky rocket. So.

I know that’s a much shorter list than normal and I’m sorry for that. I am fairly certain I’ve shared some other things that you should see on Instagram and probably on my main Twitter feed, but I cannot locate those for you at this time. Probably this month more than ever, please share all of your favorite things from the Internet in March.

  1. I love that your 5 stars reads are all books I adored too! Seriously, we are book twins! I have that Ruth Ware book on my TBR and I’m happy to see it’s a 4.5 star read for you.

    I’m so happy to hear you are fully vaccinated. I’ve been happy to see so many book twt folks getting vaccinated but it also makes me really sad because it’s impossible to find an appointment here. I gave up trying to find one and will just wait for it to become widely available. It’s not like I was planning on socializing anyways. I just want to be able to go home this summer.

    I hope your April is better! ❤

    • Honestly, One by One really got me! I was so into it.

      I really hope you’re able to find an appointment. I’m lucky to be in a part of the state where vaccine rollout was off to a slow start, but has since really caught its stride plus being “essential” or whatever. But I hate that it’s taking so long for other people to get theirs! I hope you can go home this summer. It’s been so long for you. 😦
