The time it was a monthly recap {22}

Posted April 6, 2017 by Stacee in Monthly Recap | 3 Comments

You guys.  How is it April already?  I don’t understand how time is going by so quickly.

I spent a good portion of March still being sick, so I didn’t have the energy to do any sort of extra things.  Blogging wise, or in real life. Anyhoo, here’s the recap for March. Settle in.

Last month, I read a total of 25 books. {Click on the covers for my review on GR}

I did DNF a couple of books this month and I also did a beta read for Temple West’s middle grade, but I didn’t change the number from Goodreads.

I almost died when I got the mailing from Hyperion with Royce Rolls and an Instax camera. The mailing for Blood Rose Rebellion had awesome props, including a pair of spoons I’m mildly obsessed with.  I traded my HoF arc for these awesome Fairy Loot ADSOM pins and UK copy.

I got a finished copy of Definitions of Indefinable Things from HMH Kids.  Fierce Reads sent me an early arc of Moxie.  Griffin Teen send me an early finished copy for A Crown of Wishes.

I also got Public Relations from Grand Central, A Million Junes and The One Memory of Flora Banks from Penguin Teen, The Last Thing You Said from Amulet, We Come Apart, The Possible, and Song of the Current from Bloomsbury,

Fangirled over:


Special stuff:

  • Giveaway blitz for the paperback release of The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
  • Claudia Gray shared her Pinterest board for Defy the Stars

  • Tor regrammed my claw hand Lila Bard arm photo
  • I got my Rhy card from Victoria, so of course there was a photo shoot
  • It recently broke that BlogLovin is stealing your content and reposting it as their own.  Check out this detailed post from Ashley at Nose Graze. Apparently some of it has been fixed, but I’m still a bit wary.  I’m leaving the blog up on BL {because even if you delete your blog, someone else can add it}, but I have changed my settings to summary only.  Also, I am no longer going to have links to follow on the blog. After the poll I did on Twitter, I might disable RSS all together.  Anyhoo, if you want to be sure you see all of my posts, please follow by email.
  • The 10k instagram giveaway is up!  Hitting this number was my goal for the year and I’m still stunned that I’ve already hit it.  Thank you all for following.

  • Fangirling overRosalyn Eves, Megan Miranda {maybe to both}
  • Interviewing: Nicole Castroman and Gwen Cole
  • Reading Rewind: I’ve been planning on rereading Thirteen Reasons Why.  Hopefully I actually get to it.
  • Discussion post: Perhaps.
  • Friday Favorites:  I’m probably going to put this on hold for a while.
  • Special Stuff:  I don’t think I’m going to Festival of Books this year, but I did get a press pass for YallWest.  I’m not entirely sure what that will mean for the actual event, but I’m really excited.

How about you? How was your March? What was your favorite read for the month?
