I can't believe it's time for another monthly wrap up post! It seems like March just started and I was eyeing spring/summer titles. Not April is here and I'm drooling over the fall titles! So many books, so little time..
Some of my goals for 2012 have been to read more, be more diligent about visiting other blogs and commenting. And of course, to try to make my blog better! I've worked really hard on all of these this month, and hopefully I'm doing better!
Health wise, March was a MUCH better month for me! I had to buckle down and be more strict with myself, and develop a routine, but the results have been amazing! Half way through the month I finally found my footing. Better health has also allowed me more time to read and I've read some truly incredible books this month! I've becoming even closer to my blogger friends and gotten to know many of my readers better!
I was very disappointed in myself last month, and how little I read. So as I began feeling better I did everything I could to fit in time to read. It was hard, there were a lot of things to catch up on! Cleaning, laundry ( oh.. that laundry pile!) and of course work. But I did manage to increase my reading and I am very happy about that!
For the month of March I read a total of 7 books. Just shy of my personal monthly goal of 8. I had a total of 24 posts, which included 5 reviews ( I plan on making that better next month!) a few ebook steals and deals, and a Trends in Ya post.
Thank you to everyone who supports my blog, stops by to read my posts, and for your awesome comments which I adore! I have some fun and exciting things planned for April and I hope you'll stop by to enjoy it!
