Monthly Novel Rewind: March 2017

Posted April 1, 2017 by Madalyn || 10 Comments

Another month gone! Read on to find out what we’ve been up to in reading and life during the month of March! Christy and Erica are still on a blogging break, so it’s just me (Madalyn) here for the wrap-up this month.

our most anticipated april release(s)

(Okay, so I’ve already read Upside, but I’m just so stoked for it to officially be out in the world.)

Check out these posts we loved this month! <3

every book read this month

This wasn’t the best reading month for me in terms of the number of books I read, but I did really enjoy these!

life & what’s happening

March has been a crazy-busy month for me! It’s kind of been the Month of Choir– not that that’s not already every month of my life, but March has been even more so. My university choir has been rehearsing non-stop to prepare for our choir tour and an international choir competition we’re competing in in Germany this summer (you can donate to help make this trip possible here!). I also traveled to Minneapolis for the American Choral Directors Association National Conference earlier this month, which was so, so fun. Plus, we’ve had multiple concerts this month. In non-choir news, I celebrated my 21st birthday and spent some much-needed time at home over spring break. The weather has also been gorgeous recently, which makes life more fun.

instagrammin’

I’ve been really happy with my Instagram this month, for once! Y’all should know by now that I don’t do Bookstagram, but I’ve had a lot of cool experiences this month that made my personal Insta a lot more interesting. My favorite photos are probably the ones my friends and I took in front of this music wall in Minneapolis during ACDA, though.

next month

April is shaping up to be another busy month. Luckily, though, it’s my last month of school for this semester! SO CLOSE to being done with my junior year of college. Speaking of which, my junior voice recital is next week, and I’m really, really excited about it. In the bookish world, I’ll be participating in the Very Arc-ish Readathon this month, so I’m hoping to put a dent in my ever-growing pile of e-ARCs. I’m also planning on going to a few bookish events in April– one for the release of Becky Albertalli’s newest book, one for Girl Out of Water by Laura Silverman, and one for Geekerella by Ashley Poston!

king of the month

This book was EVERYTHING, guys. Go preorder it ASAP!
