Life Things 

  • I went ice skating for the first time this month. And proceeded to fall very many times. Ouch. MK was laughing at me. And she also tried to push me over. Many times. But then we painted silk at her house! So that was fun.
  • Holy Week happened. I'm still not fully recovered. I sang 5 days in row. My mom and sister said I sounded like a 40 year old smoker. 
but after Holy Week comes Easter!!!



And that concludes my monthly wrap up!!!!!! Also note! I will be on hiatus from Sunday to Tuesday. My aunt is taking me to go see Damian McGinty in concert Monday!!!!!!!  So I will catch up on blog posts and comments on Tuesday!

  1. Wow, lots of book! That's awesome! I loved In Between. It was cute. Since you like Beauty and the Beast retellings, I have a few recommendations for you.

    1) When Ravens Fall: This is a Beauty and the Beast retelling set in Old Norse times. Though the Norse theme wasn't as strong as I had hoped (I like Norse Mythology) it was still there and it was very different from other Beauty and the Beast retellings. It's a great book and super clean, too.

    2) Calysta and the Beast: This one does have more of a Beauty and the Beast vibe to it, but it was really awesome. It's more of a modern time retelling and it has a lot of faith-based elements. This one was beautiful.

    Hope you have fun with your aunt! <3

  2. You read so many books! I love the Raven Boys, and the entire series mostly because I like creepy things and the language doesn't bother me too much.

    Love your March playlist!

  3. Ahhh, the Raven Cycle! I reread those books this month :)). I agree—Dream Thieves was my least favorite bc of all the language (geez Ronan! :P) tho I loved the premise (the Greywaren, etc.)

  6. Whenever you get back, we must have a discussion about some of these books - especially why you gave 2 stars to A Work in Progress. I really liked that book!!

    And it's snowing here at home too - at this moment actually *sobs*
