March Wrap Up

Hello everyone! March has been quite a taxing month for me, with midterms and a bit of a crisis occurring at my university which all took a lot out of me and my mental health plummeted quite a bit, leading to me not being very active on here unfortunately. However, I am hoping things will be better in April although I don’t really think so since I have 2 group projects coming up followed by exams April end and beginning of May.

However, quite a few good things happened this month, such as me reading of the best books I have ever read and I am so excited to talk more about them in this post as well as in other blog posts soon!

MY FAVOURITE BOOK OF THE MONTH:

The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake

I read so much this month and I really loved quite a few of the books I read but I also had some disappointing reads. However, all I really want to talk about is the brilliance that’s is The Atlas Six – it is one of my favourite books ever and I’ll hopefully be writing a whole blog on why you should read it pretty soon but until I am able to get my thoughts into order enough so I can actually do so, this is me telling you to please do yourself a favour and read it! In the meantime, I’ve made a reel on why you should read it so you can go check that out!

February Wrap Up
I summed up everything that happened in February for me: the Good, the Bad and all things in between!

Blog Tour: American Betiya
I am so glad I got to be a part of the blog tour for this wonderful book which I think delves into some topics that need to be talked about more in an excellent way!

Audiobook Recommendations
A follow up to my Guide to Audiobooks post I made last month in which I recommend you some audiobooks that I think are a good place to start if you want to get into them, or just need some more recommendations in a diverse range of genres.

Types of Readers
This was a fun post where I discussed the types of readers I think exist and talked about where I fit in!

Once again, I didn’t have a lot of posts published this month but I really love the ones I did publish and I think it’s better this way. I will probably continue like this, with maybe doing a fun tag every month to be around more because I love to interact with you all on here and life has just been a lot lately but hopefully things will slow down a little!

WHAT I DID IN MARCH

March was another very hectic month and honestly, I don’t even know why I am surprised anymore at how much is going on around me. I had midterms to give and quite a few assignments due this month, along with some other stuff going on at my university which was hard for my mental health and ended up with me just playing Stardew Valley all day long.

But, I did have quite a good month for my reading and I found The Atlas Six which was so good and I am so obsessed with it and it’s the only thing that is keeping me sane, but also driving me crazy since I can not wait for the Atlas Paradox to come out!

Holi, an Indian festival, was towards the end of march and that was so good! I met with my friends and we played with water and holi colours, and just had a lot of fun!

PLANS FOR APRIL

I have no expectations for April because I can already seen how gruelling it will be the number of assignments I have been receiving leading to me being so behind on classes and also with finals being in the first week of May. All I want is to somehow get tough this month alive and without losing too much sleep.

    1. Thank you! OMG yes that ending was so wholesome and I adored it!
      You should definitely check out the atlas six, it has dark academia with a secret society and such queer and diverse characters with well developed personalities that you love them all even when you hate them!
