Monthly Wrap-Up – March


During our Monthly Wrap-Up, we’ll take a look at what has happened around here in the last month. That’ll include what’s happened in my life, what the three of us have read, any other posts we may have had, giveaways still going on, our most popular Instagram posts, books that I’ve added to my ever-growing TBR and updates on my Reading Challenges.

♥ Enjoy!

Jen’s Life:

Some of my highlights from February were –

We got slammed by two different snowstorms….one was 5 feet and the other was 6 feet, which meant that the boys didn’t have school, yay!  Our roads are always fine with 4×4 or AWD, so we went and picked up my mom.  Then we spent the day playing in the snow, sledding and going to our favorite ice cream sandwich shop.  You can see a picture of the boys and I in our winter wonderland HERE.
My youngest turned 5 *sobs hysterically*.  We played baseball, hide and seek and jumped on the trampoline and then repeated everything all over again.  It was such a fun day, but definitely bittersweet that he is already this old.
Me and a group of 16 friends went and watched #IMomSoHard.  It was amazing being surrounded with a few thousand moms in the audience and we laughed so hard we had tears pouring down our face.  If you are a fellow mommy and haven’t seen their videos on their facebook page, I can’t recommend it enough.  They are beyond hilarious and we can’t wait for them to go on tour again to go to another show!

Our Favorite Books of the Month:

Legendary (Caraval #2) by Stephanie Garber (Arielle’s Choice)
THIS WAS SO GOOD. I spent a good four hours this morning finishing this book, completely ignoring everything else around me an I can’t say that I regret it. I mean seriously, the only part of this book that I didn’t like was when it ended…



The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata (Chelsea’s Choice)
This book owned my heart. This book touched my soul. This book possessed me so wholly that I walked around everywhere with a smile on my face and a skip in my step-literally-just because I was so excited I got to read more of it.



The Prophecy (Titan #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Jen’s Choice)
The Prophecy was a stunning conclusion to the Titan Series!  It was action packed, emotionally gutting and completely addicting!  This is going down as one of my favorite series ever!

Books Added To Jen’s TBR This Month:


Reading Challenges:

This is the first year I’ve EVER joined a Reading Challenge. I went through Nicole’s huge list of reading challenges – check it out here – and found three that sounded absolutely perfect for me. Here’s where I am so far….

Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge
Status: 5
Goal: 16-20


Beat The Backlist
Status: 4
Goal: 15-20


Library Love Challenge
Status: 0
Goal: 12 books

I’ll get to this eventually. There’s a few authors attending RT who have books at my library. 🙂


So that was our March. Did you read any of the same books that we did? Or share the same favorite book as us? If not, then what was your favorite book? Or have you read any of the books I just added to my TBR?

Here’s hoping you all had a wonderful March too. And cheers to April fabulous for all of us!

      I hadn’t either until my friends told me about it the end of last year. They said we all had to go and watch the show together. So I bought a ticket and then went on their Facebook page and website and started watching videos. In person….oh my gosh….we were laughing so hard I wish I would have worn waterproof mascara HA! And now I have my Facebook set to notify me of their new posts, those two women crack me up!
