Monthly Wrap Up and TBR

Spring is here and with it hopefully some warmer weather. I am eagerly anticipating the end of winter and cannot wait for patio season. I have a love/hate relationship with summer but I am definitely eagerly anticipating it at this point of winter.

I haven't been able to read that much but things are seeming to slow down at work so hopefully more reading time is in my future.

Before I talk about what March will bring for me reading wise I have to recap February. 

The books that were on my list are:

Saga: Volume One by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples (goodreads)
One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid (goodreads)
Anatomy by Dana Schwartz  (goodreads)

I also had some ebooks that I hoped to read:

If This Gets Out by Sophie Gonzales and Cale Dietrich (goodreads)
Reckless Girls by Rachel Hawkins (goodreads)
Only A Monster by Vanessa Len (goodreads)
Gallant by V.E Schwab (goodreads)
How To Date A Superhero (and Not Die Trying) by Cristina Fernandez (goodreads)

Here is what I managed to read in February:

Saga: Volume One by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples (goodreads)
How To Date A Superhero (and Not Die Trying) by Cristina Fernandez (goodreads)
Only A Monster by Vanessa Len (goodreads)

I managed to read four books this month. I am going to be taking part in a readathon in March so hopefully this means much more reading being accomplished this month.

My #PopCultureResolution book for February was Lore Olympus: Volume 1 by Rachel Smythe, which I managed to read and have reviewed already. The movie was Funny Face and the review for that will be coming very soon.

Here is what I hope to read in March:

I am doing a Taylor Swift themed readathon that is lasting all month. It's titled 'tis the damn readathon and you can find all the details in my previous post. I am very excited to be doing this!

Open Book by Jessica Simpson (goodreads)
Anatomy by Dana Schwartz  (goodreads)
Marry Me by Bobby Crosby (goodreads)
Monstress, Vol. 1: Awakening by Marjorie M. Liu, Sana Takeda (goodreads)

I also have some ebooks that I am hoping to get to:

Reckless Girls by Rachel Hawkins (goodreads)
Gallant by V.E Schwab (goodreads)
Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren (goodreads)
The Night Shift by Alex Finlay (goodreads)
The Club by Ellery Lloyd (goodreads)

My #PopCultureResolution picks for this month have be adjusted a bit. I was supposed to read Heartstopper this month but my hold at the library has not come in yet. I am going to jump to my next pick instead and circle back to Heartstopper hopefully next month. That means the choices are Monstress, Vol. 1: Awakening by Marjorie M. Liu and Sana Takeda. The movie is the 1954 version of  A Star is Born. I am excited for both of these, and hope I love this version of A Star is Born as much as the Bradley Cooper directed version.

Next up is an update on my two reading challenges:

I am not doing any new reading challenges this year. My goal is to finish the one from last year so I am posting what I have left to read here. I have made no progress, but I am reading one book this month that I can scratch off this!
