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 we’ve read, any other posts we may have had, our most popular Instagram posts, and books that I’ve added to my ever-growing TBR.

Jen’s Life:

✮ Our youngest turned 8 this last month.  We took the day off from school (the advantages of homeschooling yay!), and celebrated the day with family, played games, had In N Out takeout and enjoyed the weather outside. 
✮ I’ve been doing a step challenge on Garmin, with my sister-in-law, since last month.  I decided to cut myself slack on the days I work out on the elliptical or the recumbent bike and watch The Vampire Diaries (soooooo good!!), so if I don’t hit 10k steps on those days then I’m fine with it.  But like last night, I was 2k steps short EEKS!  So there I am walking in place, next to our bed while reading a book, and my husband was staring at me like I’m crazy lol!
✮ Some of my favorite recipes I made this last month were Italian Baked Chicken and Pastina, Hamburger Noodle Casserole, Slower Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken & Triple Chocolate Cake.


What We Read:

5 Stars:
The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black
Wallflower by Cookie O’Gorman
Heartscape (Vino & Veritas #2) by Garrett Leigh

4.5 Stars:
The Secret Recipe for Moving On by Karen Bischer

4 Stars:
The Marquess and I (Forever Yours #1) by Stacy Reid
Headstrong (Vino & Veritas #3) by Eden Finley





Our Favorite Books of the Month:

Arielle’s Choice – Heartscape (Vino & Veritas #2) by Garrett Leigh
Heartscape resonated deep within my bones.  Just thinking about how obvious their love for each other was just makes my heart so happy *cries* lol. Such a great book!




Jen’s Choice – The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly BlackWallflower by Cookie O’Gorman
I’m sorry but I can NOT  pick a favorite between a fantasy and a contemporary lol.  It is impossible!  I LOVED both of these books with my whole heart and soul!  If you’re a fan of YA fantasy or enemies to lovers, then definitely pickup The Cruel Prince!  And if you’re a fan of young adult romance or fake dating then you gotta add Wallflower to your tbr!





We thought it would be fun to share our most popular posts for March. And they were….

    Nice wrap up! It looks like you had great month, Jen! I’m so glad you enjoyed The Cruel Prince! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on rest of the trilogy.
    Hope you have a wonderful April! 💕

      Spoiler alert, I loved the next two books ♥! Thank you!

  2. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    I love seeing The Cruel Prince get 5 stars. I had so much fun with that series. All the machinations and political intrigue. And of course Cardan. 🙂 I have The King of Elfhame out from the library right now and plan to read it soon.
