My book picks for March started off not so good. It was bad book after bad book for me and I just wasn’t feeling it. Finally by the end of the month things had turned around with a few good ones such as Fangirl, Reality Boy, and All the Bright Places. Now, onto what I read last month!
What I Read: March 2015
Wake by Anna Hope – ★★ – Honestly, I’m not sure what I expected from this book, but I just could not get into it. Every time I tried to listen to it, even when I was just folding laundry, I couldn’t focus on it. It just was… boring. I gave up.
It’s nice to be back to a semi-normal schedule today. As you may have noticed, I took a few days off last week to prepare and recover from Christmas festivities. We did four Christmases, and I hosted Christmas Brunch with my mom this year. Lots of good food and fun, but glad the planning is behind me now. Hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday season!
It’s amazing to me that 2014 is coming to a close so soon. I feel like I say this every year, but I can’t believe it went by so quickly. That’s why I’m excited to look back at 2014 with Sarah today!
What I Accomplished
2014. It was a good year. We hit a few bumps, but I must say, it was much kinder to us than 2013. Continue reading
I know, I know. I say this every month, but how is November already almost over? Next week is Thanksgiving, and of course my favorite shopping day of the year, Black Friday! I’m excited, but it’s all coming too fast for me. I still haven’t even figured out what I’m making to take to Thanksgiving yet! Eek.
But anyways, since it’s that time of month, I thought I’d update on my reading progress (or lack thereof!) If you remember, I’m trying to read 100 books this year, and that’s not looking so good for me right now. I’m hoping I can kick my reading up a notch over the holidays though. We shall see. But without further ado, here’s What I Read in November:
I swear I say this every month, but I really can’t believe October is just about over. I won’t lie, I’m getting excited for my favorite holidays… Thanksgiving and Christmas, of course. I like Halloween, but I feel like when you don’t have kids and are too old for trick-or-treating and kind of over the party scene, it’s not quite as fun.
Anyways, enough about holidays (though admittedly, it does relate to budgets. I mean, I basically blow all of mine on Black Friday yearly…) because the real reason we are here today is to look at what I bought with my clothing budget last month.

So admittedly, I’ve been terrible at reading these past couple of months. I set a goal of reading 100 books this year and am 7 books behind. Yikes! I decided to join in Megan at Semi-Charmed Kind of Life with her Winter Book Challenge in hopes of jump-starting my reading again!
