Monthly Wrap Up and TBR

This is a little bit late as it's been a crazy beginning to April. My birthday was on the 3rd and I have been promoted at work and have moved into my new position as of the first of April. It's exciting but an adjustment which means I have wanted to sleep more instead of reading because I am so tired at the end of the day.

I unfortunately failed the Taylor Swift readathon as I had one book left to read. I am going to read it still but I am sad that I didn't complete it in March. 

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

The books that were on my list are:

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 had some ebooks that I hoped to read:

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)

Here is what I managed to read in March:

Marry Me by Bobby Crosby (goodreads)
Monstress, Vol. 1: Awakening by Marjorie M. Liu, Sana Takeda (goodreads)
The Night Shift by Alex Finlay (goodreads)
Open Book by Jessica Simpson (goodreads)
Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren (goodreads)

I managed to read five books this month. I am proud of that because I started a new position at work and had a lot going on life wise.

My #PopCultureResolution book for March was Saga: Volume One by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples, which I managed to read and will review soon. The movie was A Star is Born and that has already been reviewed.

Here is what I hope to read in April :

A Night to Die For by Lisa Schroeder (goodreads)
Anatomy by Dana Schwartz  (goodreads)

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

The Club by Ellery Lloyd (goodreads)
Birds of California by Katie Cotugno (goodreads)
Groupies by Sarah Priscus (goodreads)
How to Fake it in Hollywood by Ava Wilder (goodreads)

My #PopCultureResolution picks for this month have been adjusted a bit. I was supposed to read Heartstopper this month but my hold at the library has still 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 On the Town. I am definitely excited for On the Town and I have already read Monstress so expect a review soon.

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 hopefully I can scratch these off this summer.
