March Wrap Up and Book Haul

I hoped to catch up on a few of my ARCs this month as well as read some more non-fiction. I’m also trying to read books as I buy/receive them and only have 4 I didn’t get around to in March, which is really great. Hopefully, this will help get my TBR pile slowly under control.

I did read a lot of books this month but that was mainly because of ill health forcing me to stay in bed to rest. I read some fantastic books though and managed to keep on top of most of my new books whilst catching up with some ARCs. Next month I’d like to tackle all my remaining ARCs.

    You had a fantastic month! Can’t wait to see what you think of the Alienist. Hopefully you haven’t seen the show yet.

    Wow, you read a lot. I’m also trying to get my TBR under control, but so far I’m losing the battle. I’m glad you liked The Five. I want to read that one. Happy April.
