Monthly Wrap Up

Monthly Wrap Up March 2022

March felt like it went by so quickly, but it still doesn’t quite feel like springtime here. We even got some snow squalls towards the end of the month. I read less books this month, but got a lot of ARCs read, even though I also got approved for a ton of new ones. And I have to admit, there have been some really great books that I read this month! Here’s progress on my goals:

  • I gained another 21 followers, for a total of 548.
  • I completely failed at reading any of the books I own and haven’t read yet, and hope to get to a few this month.
  • I read 3 nonfiction books this month, all focusing on Ukraine. But they were so interesting!
  • I’m still trying to increase diversity in my reading, reading books by Black, Latinx, Asian, Native American, and LGBTQ authors.

Here’s my breakdown of monthly/cumulative totals for March:
