March 2020 Monthly Wrap Up

March 2020 Monthly Wrap Up


March is over, and it’s time for my monthly wrap-up!


March was such a hectic and strange month. I’ve been hiding out in my house and finding ways to keep myself occupied. I wrote a post about coping with coronavirus stress, which you can find here. Most of my time has been spent reading and blogging, but I finally made time to organize my bookshelves. In addition, I participated in the Spring into Readathon, which was fun and helped me stay motivated. I also put a lot of effort into reading the ARCs I had piling up on NetGalley and (drumroll please) … got my percentage to over 80!


I got caught up on writing reviews for all the books I read, but I haven’t posted them all yet. I promise that I will though!
