Hello Readers!

Before jumping into my March reading tracker, let me recap. At the beginning of February I had set out to read four books. I wanted to read a current book (meaning I wanted to finish the book I had previously started in January), a  backlist book (or a book that I’ve had sitting on my shelf for quite some time), a historical fiction (simply because I was in the mood for it),  and an upcoming book (an ARC).

While I generally accomplished that goal,  some of the books changed. Originally I was planning on finishing my current read at the beginning of the month, Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. I did put it down because I felt as if I didn’t have the head space for it at that moment. I also, was planning on reading My Name is Not Friday by John Walter but after a few short pages, realized that I, in fact, was not in the mood for a straight up historical fiction.

So what did I read?

I had started Morgan Matson’s upcoming, The Unexpected Everything sometime in January but put it down to read Passenger. I returned back to Matson’s new book, and finished it.

I also read Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch, an ARC I had picked up from the publisher at ALA Midwinter (and a book I’ve been excited to read since first hearing about it).

I finally made time to read a backlist book, Five Flavors of Dumb (which I also reviewed). It felt good to pick a book off my shelf randomly and read it.

And Even though I decided early on that My Name is Not Friday by John Walter was going to be put on the back burner, I picked up another backlist book that I considered to be historical fiction. I picked up Dr. Frankenstein’s Daughters by Suzanne Weyn.

Even though there were some shifts and changes, I thought I did pretty well reading wise this month. I set out to read four books, and I did! Which, truth be told I didn’t think I would.

This month I am setting my goal a bit higher. I am hoping to read a total of five books. I am planning on reading two backlist books (one of which will be on audio), a newly released book, an upcoming book, and a book I’m going to call my wild card read.

Backlist Books: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (audio) and I Know What You Did Last Summer by Lois Duncan

Newly Released Book: Kill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky

Upcoming Book: The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude

Wild Card: ???

That is what I am hoping to read this month. I’m excited and hopeful! What books are you planning on reading this month, dear readers?! Please share, I’d love to know.
