March in Review

What I Learned

Well, I give up on reading goals... But, I am having fun and that is what counts right? I really need to read more of my own books of the longer variety. My reading has been primarily graphic novels and there are so many novels that I want to read! I am hoping April will open up more of a balance... But, I did set a goal to have no unread graphic novels in my house by the end of year and am working on that at the very least!

  1. Wow! Look at all you read. I see you got a Patricia Briggs -- I really, really need to get caught up in that series.

  2. 116 books read! Wow! I'm on #3. Lol

  3. Your pets are the cutest!! :) Yay for Princeless, I'm relatively new to comics issues, but that was a favorite discovery for me last year :) Also really liked Genius #1, I need more issues! Happy reading in April!

  4. Having fun is definitely what matters most ;) And reading goals can be overrated :)

  5. Looks like a pretty great reading month to me!

  6. Wow! I'm glad you're having fun! It sure looks like a lot of fun!

  7. Exactly. I didn't stick to my plans either but I had fun. I LOVE your gray kitty.

  8. You did really well for March. Plan to read Uprooted at some stage, hopefully for OUaT. Definitely having fun is what counts.

  9. I really like how you also include how many new to you authors you read. I may have to do that for my year end review. Hope April is another great month!

  10. To hell with reading goals! Who needs em!

  11. If it's one or the other, then having fun > reading goals :) I think having one or two are good but if they aren't working, scrap them and go with the flow. That said, on the reading longer books vs getting to your graphic novels it's not a bad goal to have. Perhaps you can switch between them or have a longer-term long book?

    Either way you read to a lot of books this month :D

  12. You're doing an impressive job getting caught up on your series! I don't know where I'd even start doing that with mine.
