It's time for another monthly wrap-up! I realize I haven't done one of these in SUCH a long time but I'm trying to get back into the habit of doing them. I think it'll help if I start a post at the beginning of the month and keep updating it as I finish books. Then it won't be so hard to track down all of this information at the end of the month. This month will also be the last month in which I only count books for which I've written and published reviews. Because I'm a bit behind on my reviews, it seems like I've only read 2 books this month but I can tell you it was far from it. I have so many notes written but no time to write the actual reviews! I'll start keeping track of every book I finish. So without further ado, let's get into it!

Kragan by Dennis K. Hausker
Pivot Point by Kasie West (Pivot Point#1)
This month, like I said in my intro, I actually read a lot more than two books. However, I only kept track of the ones I wrote a review for and I got really behind on reviews. April will be different! Kragan was the R&R book of the month and Pivot Point was my buddy read of the month. I rated Kragan a 3 for it's great idea but lack of development. Pivot Point earned a 4 as it is such a cool idea but there were still fuzzy things.
Whew! That month just flew by! I didn't end up getting all of my R&R's done which is really sad but I'm aiming for this month! February and March were just so busy with regular life stuff that everything bookish just sort of fell by the way-side.
I also haven't had much time for writing over the past month or so. I've been writing scholarship essays and figuring out where my life is headed next year. I hope to do more writing this summer during NaNoWriMo Camp and finish the book that I started during the November NaNoWriMo.
I also finally started going to my real life book club meetings and I've been having fun at them. I'm not sure when I'll have the reviews up for the books we've read so far but hopefully it'll be soon! So far, I've read House of Thunder, Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl and Slaughterhouse Five. I also plan to write a review for Little Women for which I participated in a read-along for back in February (and do the discussion questions that I haven't yet done!).
One last thing! I do plan to do at least one discussion post this month. I really miss writing them and it seems like I never have the time to because reviews take first priority. However, I'm hoping to make time in April! After all, it is my birthday month :)
I hope you all are doing well! Happy reading!
