Monthly Roundup - March


March was quite a busy month in these parts, and although I got a lot of reading done, I am a bit behind in my reviewing. I managed to get We Were Liars off my TBR and onto my read list, and goodness, why did I wait so long? That book is amazing. I went to the Penguin Teen Aus YA Squad event in Melbourne and got to meet/catch up with some great Australian authors, as well as farewelling the amazing Felicity who has been the face of Penguin Teen Aus for several years and is moving on to pastures new.

The other big thing that happened in March was my blog turned 5. Little did I think 5 years ago that I would have moved from keeping a record of what I was reading and a few notes on my thoughts, to reading and reviewing books for major publishers. It's been an amazing ride. If only this paid the bills!

Question: What was your bookish highlight in March?

What I'm looking forward to in April:

School holidays finishing so I can get some more reviews written, attending the official launch of Frankie by Shivaun Plozza, and the launch of #YATalk, a Twitter Chat hosted by YA fans and authors to talk about the books we love. The first on is on April 6th at 7:30pm AET, so please join in if you can.

  1. Ooh, I forgot that #YATalk was on tomorrow--fingers crossed I'll be able to participate in that. And speaking of Shivaun Plozza, I'm really, really looking forward to reading FRANKIE; it looks seriously great. I'm looking forward to LADY MIDNIGHT, too. I'm sooooo tempted to buy it, but there's literally zero room on my bookshelf right now. >.< (and congrats on your blogoversary by the way!)

    1. I hope you can make it! Frankie is such a great book. Lady Midnight I enjoyed more than the previous few Shadowhunter books. And thanks :)
