March 2018

On the one hand, I cannot believe it's officially the last day of March. On the other hand, so much has happened this month that I shouldn't be surprised at all. It's been one hell of a time, and I'm so, so glad that I've been blessed with the ability to experience all of these fun things with so many of the folks that I adore in real life. This is not to say, however, that March was all sunshine and rainbows; I've been having a terrible emotional upheaval over life-related things and anxiety over others and dealing with that in the middle of all the wonderful. It's still not quite settled internally for me, but I'm hoping that I keep on moving onward and upward as the year goes by.

I kicked off the month of March in the most epic way with a trip to Iceland with my bestie Rachel of Hello, Chelly. We spent just under a week exploring Reykjavik and a couple of other areas, and it was one of the most surreal, most beautiful experiences of my life! Upon my return, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a screening of Love, Simon with Kristin of Super Space Chick, and it is such a delightful adaptation, y'all, so you better go and see it. The week after, I went down to DC for an overnight trip with Rachel & DJ to attend ApollyCon, and that was a delight as well! I also ended up having Korean BBQ with the fam, grabbing tea with Lili at Alice's Teacup and finishing off the month with a visit to Stax Ice Cream.

Of the thirty (!!! I honestly didn't think I would be reading so much with all the travel, but I was totally wrong about that) novels and manga that I read this month, these seven were my favorites of the bunch. (Also, I've been on a major romance binge, so if you have any recommendations, I'm ready to hear them!) The books I'm featuring are: Blurred Lines | The Woman Who Rides Like A Man (a reread!) | Orange: Future (such a good companion sequel!) | The Ancient Magus Bride, Vol. 1 (an incredible series starter!) | Dirty Rowdy Thing | Dark Wild Night | Aru Shah and the End of Time

  3. Wow, ICELAND! I'm so happy you guys had such a great time. Traveling with friends is the best experience! Also, I cannot believe you read THIRTY books in one month ... you are a reading machine!!! I'm hoping to read ARU SHAH this month, so hearing that it was one of your favorites makes me eager to get started!

    I know how badly anxiety can take over what we choose to do, so I hope there's something bigger that you can focus on! Hang in there!
