Monthly Recap! March 2016

Posted April 6, 2016 by Wendy in recap / 4 Comments


How does every month just fly by?! I can’t believe it’s already April (which means BEA is NEXT MONTH OH MY GOD). March was kind of a subpar reading month for me, but that’s okay… it can only get better from here, right?

Favorites of the month: The Raven Boys! Maggie’s writing is MAGIC. I knew I loved her writing from how much I loved The Scorpio Races so I’m so glad I finally started the Raven Cycle series!

This month I read the Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater! (Okay so technically, finishing the series in the first few days of April but I’m counting it.) Love the characters, love the paranormal atmosphere and love love her writing!

Favorite Things This Month:

The Seahawks 12K race I’ve been working toward is in two weeks! AHH! I’ve been struggling with shin splints recently (which is so weird because I’ve never in my life had problems with this before) so that’s put a damper on some of my runs. I’ve been doing exercises and stretches for them though so fingers crossed! I got this amazing Seahawks tutu that I’m really excited to run in, haha! I was not expecting it to be nearly that poofy and I may end up looking a bit ridiculous but OH WELL!

I got to visit my sister and her family for a weekend! I don’t get to see them that much so it was so nice to hang out with them! 🙂

The return of some fave TV shows! I love Survivor and Dancing with the Stars! Survivor isn’t nearly as crazy and epic as last season (and let’s be real, I’m missing me some manbun Joe) but I still love it. My faves so far on Dancing with the Stars are Nyle (how amazing is he??), Paige and Wanya! I love Von as well, as a person and football player, but I feel like he has more potential than we’ve seen as a dancer! Do you watch these?

That’s it for my March! Tell me what you were up to in March! What were your favorite reads? What did you do? Do you watch Survivor or DWTS? Tell me your faves on there!

  1. I love reading your recap and nodding along the whole time because I already know everything about your life. Lol. What genre is Raven Boys? I always thought it was fantasy, but then you didn’t put it under your flights of fantasy so now I’m questioning… I need a picture of your Seahawks tutu on race day!

  2. I was kind of relieved at first that I wasn’t doing BEA this year, because of the move further away from me, but now that it’s coming closer, I wish I could afford to fly up! It’s going to feel weird to *not* be there, after 3 years of going *sniff* Oh well, I’ll just live vicariously through you all XD

    YAY for The Raven Boys!!! I love everything Stiefvater has written but The Raven Cycle is my favorite ♥ Also? How CRAZY is it that it’s already April?! :O

    Favorite for March: buddy reading DOA with you of course 😉 I swear the only way to get through a long read is finding someone to do it with, especially when you need to complain along the way. Shin splints suck, I’m sorry. I used to get them in high school when I ran track. Luckily I don’t get them anymore.
