March Wrap-Up Post

January 2016

I suspect I’m going to feel this way at many future monthly wrap-ups, but I can’t believe it’s the end of March already! This month, I’m feeling very aware of how much I need to do before I graduate, although also very excited about how things are going. Despite school keeping me busy, it’s been a great month of reading. In particular, I’m happy that I’ve done a better job than last month of fitting in some translated books and other diverse reads.

Books Read

So far, I’m reading about the same amount every month this year, with 11 books in March.

My most popular post this month was a review and giveaway ofΒ A Tyranny of Petticoats, a great collection of historical fiction short stories featuring diverse female heroines.

I’m also particularly excited for Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon. I’m hopeful that I can have the bulk of my thesis writing done before then and take the day to read!

    I’m just about to write my quarterly wrap up post, and I can’t believe so much of 2016 is already gone. Didn’t it just start!?

    I have Lab Girl sitting in my tbr. What did you think of it??
    Also, I’ve picked up The Reason I Jump, and am very happy that it’s relatively short – should be able to fit it in! πŸ™‚

      I loved it and I’m guessing you would too! It was an interesting memoir and had some fascinating fun facts about plants as well. And I’m also happy how short The Reason I Jump is. It can be hard to make time for everything!

    Ugh. I feel like a broken record saying it, but I’m always saying. Where did X month go? It’s true though they just fly by.

    Have a great month. And I hope you will find time to read despite your thesis. πŸ™‚

    Is Lab Girl good? I’m interested in getting a copy. It looks like you had a stellar month. Not sure how you do school reading on top of all this. Kudos.

    Good luck on your thesis. Mine was so long ago I actually remember that time fondly. I didn’t remember it at all fondly soon after – I was totally burnt out. πŸ™‚ No pressure. I forgot about the Readathon, I haven’t done it for years. I’ll be working that weekend, so it would be difficult for me to participate. I’ll see, though. It was fun when I used to do it.
