The time it was a monthly recap {32}

Posted April 4, 2018 by Stacee in Monthly Recap, Signings | 2 Comments

I can’t believe we’re already in April.  I know I say this every recap, but it always seems like I just did last month’s recap.  Maybe it’s the procrastinator in me because these posts take forever to draft.

Anyhoo, ready for the March recap? Settle in.

Last month, I read a total of 21 books.

I sort of got in a slump in March.  I just couldn’t bring myself to actually sit down and read anything.  So even though that number is on the smaller side for me, I’m pretty pleased with it.

  • The lovely Brighton Walsh sent me a package including a signed copy of her new book, Second Chance Charmer, plus a gorgeous silver bangle
  • I bought myself the paperback of The Raven King {hilariously not pictured here} just to get the Opal tarot card
  • Stephanie Garber spoiled me with the UK paperback of Caraval

  • Berkley sent me The Kiss Quotient
  • Bloomsbury sent me The Brink of Darkness
  • The Novl sent me Defy the Stars and Defy the Worlds
  • Getting all of these books made me scream

Macmillan sent me Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore.  And I have a couple of other things that I got in the mail but apparently I haven’t taken photos of them.  So I’ll include them in next month’s recap.

Fangirled over:

Interviewed:

Special stuff:

  • I had a press pass for WonderCon and went just to see Victoria Schwab.  I had posted this photo on the morning of going up there and in my caption I said that I needed to decide which copy to bring.  Victoria commented that I should bring all of them.
  • We got to the signing area about 20 minutes before hand and the floor manager so nicely showed us where the the line was, so we got in line and waited.
  • When I got to Victoria, she said, “How is my Lila” and I died.
  • We chatted for a few minutes about foreign copies, her upcoming events, the release of Vicious, and maybe a couple of other things.

  • Someone on Instagram let me know that a YouTuber had featured my photo on a segment that he had where he tries to recreate photos that he likes.
  • He said my photo was gorgeous and talked about the actual placement and wondered where I would get a Gemina bookmark
  • Then he did a side by side comparison of my photo to his recreation
  • I didn’t make a note of his user name. I guess I thought I would remember? Anyhoo, if I find it, I’ll update this.
  • Fangirling over: Roshani Chokshi, Jessica Cluess and maybe Veronica Roth.  Plus, I might be going to Festival of Books, I haven’t decided.
  • Reading Rewind: Yes, probably.  I already know what book I’m going to read.
  • Discussion post: Perhaps.
  • Special Stuff: Mysterious Galaxy is starting a YA book club and I can’t wait.

How about you? How was your March? What was your favorite read for the month?
