March 2024 Recap & Haul Time!

April 16, 2024

🌸 March reading 🌸

It’s time for another wrap-up/haul post and some reading statistics!

This post is a little late going up, but better late than never, right? I haven’t felt super motivated to write this post because March was such a disappointing reading month overall, but I did have a few really good reads and some good hauls I wanted to share.

✨ hauls ✨

First, look at this picture I got of Echo and my haul stack 🥹 isn’t she precious?


I think this is the best I’ve done since starting my book ban! I’ve reached the point of cancelling most of my standing pre-orders unless they are just EXTREMELY beloved authors or books I’m really excited for, and I’ve started skipping book box months that don’t interest me (I skipped 2 for April!).

review copies:

I got a surprisingly large amount of ARCs and eARCs this month, so I’ll split these between physical and digital. I’m so excited about all of these other than A Feather So Black, which I’ve already read (and didn’t finish, sadly!).

How was your month? What was your favorite book you read or hauled, or what was something nice that happened in your life?
