My March Reads in Review

March was such a great book month for me! I finished 15 books, many of which were five-star reads for me, and a couple were ARC copies of books that I’ve been absolutely DYING to read.

I also got to attend some really great book events this month and met some incredible authors. Overall, March was another incredible month! I hope all of you had a great month as well!

NetGalley/Edelweiss Challenge

3 new NetGalley/Edelweiss books completed, bringing my percentage back down a bit to 70%. Still so close to that golden 80%!

2017 Total: 10/50


Author Events I Attended in February

I got to attend so many amazing author events in March. I got to meet authors like Elizabeth Briggs, Jessica Day George, Jeff Zentner, Alwyn Hamilton, RenΓ©e Ahdieh, Lesley Livingston, Natalie C. Anderson, Marie Lu, Jay Asher, Shannon Hale, and Brendan Reichs. I also got to see some of my favorite local authors like Kathryn Purdie, Emily King, Tricia Levenseller, Erin Summerhill, Rosalyn Eves, and James Dashner. Basically it was amazing.

Thank you for the 10 millionth time to The King’s English Bookshop for bringing all these amazing authors to Utah and for helping to create such an amazing book community for us here.


So what were some of your favorite March reads? Were any of your favorites on my list? How are you doing with all of your reading challenges right now?

  1. I’ve had The Serpent King on my shelves over 6 months now and still keep passing it up. I’ve been hoping this will be a great summer read πŸ™‚ I can’t believe you read 15 books on top of all those author events lol

    1. Oh, my gosh. It is one of those books that you’ll read and be like “WHY DID I WAIT THIS LONG?” At least, that’s the reaction I had. You’ll have to let me know wha you think. πŸ™‚ It was a super busy month! But really, really fun!

      4. The best! πŸ™‚ I think it’s New York, San Francisco, and Salt Lake City that seem to have the best YA communities. It seems so random for SLC to be on that list.
