Monthly Round-Up – March

That’s us a quarter of the way through 2017 already! Crazy! I’m writing this a little early and scheduling it to post on the first as I’m going to be staying with a friend for a few days and I really can’t be bother to cart my laptop up to his. Lazy I know! Here’s what I’ve been up to on the blog during March.

Books Purchased

None! I’m not sure if I should be sad or proud about this. I’ve got ARCs beginning to stack up as when it comes to NetGalley at the moment I’m like a magpie spotting something shiny

Books Received

This month I received several books via Bookbridgr, and I won a signed copy of Deadly Game through a Twitter giveaway.

March Books

I also requested and was approved for more books on NetGalley than is good for me.

Challenge Progress

I’m also keeping track of all my reading challenges – The numbers won’t quite match the reviews on the blog as I’m behind in my reviewing – Ooops

Goodreads Challenge: 30/50

I’m happy with how this one is going, already upped by challenge number and I’m well ahead so I think I’ll up it again

British Books Challenge 2017: 12/12

I’ve hit my target yay! Admittedly it was the lowest option going but I’ll have to have a think about what I’m going to aim for now

2017 Cloak and Dagger Challenge: 15/15

Again I went for a low target so I’m going to have to rethink it. That said I’m actually surprised that out of the 30 books I’ve read only half have been crime fiction and thrillers, I suppose this means I’m widening my reading which is good, and I’ve picked up some fantastic YA books that have been recommended

2017 New Release Challenge: 22/30

Thanks to NetGalley I’ve been managing to get my hands on a lot of fantastic new books

2017 New To Me Challenge: 25/12

So I’ve already smashed this one. Again thanks to NetGalley I’ve got my hands on a lot of fantastic books – and I’ve got some great recomendations from everyone elses reviews

2017 Netgalley & Edelweiss Challenge: 21/25

This is great, unfortunately I keep requesting more so I’m not really helping my NetGalley TBR

2017 Book Blog Discussion Challenge Posts: 12

I’ve managed to post one a week since I started. I’m not sure if this will continue but I’m happy with what I’ve managed. If you have any suggestions feel free to leave a comment or message me!
