February Wrap Up & March TBR

I know February is a short month, but somehow I feel like it truly flew by. I finally managed to finish The Wheel of Time series so here’s hoping my attention span will allow me to return to reading romance and a variety of authors because I have missed my HEAs. I think I’m going to do a Wheel of Time Series Wrap Up just for myself, but I haven’t decided yet. Despite having just finished them, I feel like I already have no idea what happens in which book, except for the longest chapter I have ever read in my entire life was in the last book. Anyway, this month one of my best friend’s had a baby (!!) who I’ll get to meet in a couple of weeks (thank you Covid vaccine and booster), I got to see my nephew (ditto that thanks), both of my parents got covid despite the vaccine and covid but are fine now (thank you, Jesus), and I got to spend the most wonderful Saturday with a friend exploring The Biltmore House (which it turns out is way cooler than I knew). But you’re really here for me to tell you about my reading, so let’s get to it!

March TBR

So, in March, I’m going to participate in the second year of the ’tis the damn readathon, which I posted about last year. The good news is the prompts are the same. The extra good news is, is that there is a special week long addition to this called the Swift Version. And then, I’m also going to be participating in the Magical Readathon Mini Round. Plus, of course, we have a new #SpringIntoLoveBingo board that I’m going to start working on! So here are the books I’m hoping to tackle for these things:

  • Taylor Swift (Read a Memoir): Heavy by Kiese Laymon
  • Fearless (Read an Intimidating Book): The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri
  • Speak Now (Read the 3rd Book in a Series): Crush the King by Jennifer Estep
  • Red (Have a dance break)
  • 1989 (book with a number in the title): One Day to Fall by Therese Beharrie
  • Reputation (read a book recommended to you): From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout (recommended by my sister who won’t stop bugging me to read it)
  • Lover (Self-care)
  • folklore (Wear a cozy outfit)
  • evermore (Read a mystery/thriller): Murder on Cold Street by Sherry Thomas
  • Swift Version: TBR Book You Can’t Stop Thinking About: Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers
  • Swift Version: Traditional Romance: Weather Girl by Rachel Lynn Solomon
  • Swift Version: An Audiobook: Under One Roof by Ali Hazelwood
  • Magical Readathon: Staff Prompt: Book from a Series: Fevered Star by Rebecca Roanhorse
  • Magical Readathon: Altiveras: Sky on the Cover or in Title: House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas
  • Magical Readathon: Elf (aka a prompt I have to fulfill before the actual kickoff from the September readathon): A book with sun or moon: The Hidden Moon by Jeannie Lin

You know, now that I look at this list all together, it seems a tad lengthy. It doesn’t include the March ARCs I still need to read or the ones I’m behind on again. Ah well. We’ll see what I get to! How was your February? Do you have any reading plans for March?

  1. Yay for getting to see babies!
    I’m seeing the series numbers on those Wheel of Time books and omg what a long series and you are amazing for binge-reading it like that!
    You seem to do really well at readathons/bingos so I know you’ll nail your planned ones. Happy reading!

    • Binge reading Wheel of Time certainly impacted my overall reading numbers, but my brain would not tolerate much else. Lol. I had to know what was going to happen! Sadly, the romance arcs could have been done much better. But overall, he and Brandon Sanderson didn’t do a terrible job necessarily. I just need the show to do the romance BETTER. Lol


  2. I once thought about reading the Wheel of Time series and was immediately daunted by how many books there were. I would immediately forget what happened at the start (and the middle and end) of the series because of how many there were so well done getting through them all. And yay for the covid vaccine letting you make plans to see all of the babies. That is exciting news. I don’t know how you manage to commit to readathons. I’m doing 3 year long challenges and worry I will abandon them soon enough, I know my mood reading brain would rebel at any other challenge but I hope you do well.

    • Mood reading brains definitely make TBRs a struggle some days!! But I think it’s fun to push myself even if I don’t always succeed. 🙂

      If I hadn’t read all of Wheel of Time basically back to back, I don’t know that I could have done it either. But even I’m impressed my brain was willing to stay focused on them long enough. Lol
