Currently: Chapter 3 of 12


Aside from some much awaited changes in my shift/job role at work and the #GuiltFreeReads collaboration with Jules, Sydney & Mishma, the other thing that took over my life was my project proposal. Crazy does not begin to describe it.

4 times. That's how many times I changed by project topic. I kid you not.

Have I ever told you that I can be quite indecisive? I detest the finality of making decisions and settling on one topic was damned near impossible. HOW DO PEOPLE EVEN DO IT. After WEEKS of indecisiveness and hesitation, I had pull an all-nighter to write the actual project. And I even made it on time for the submission. ;)

After that like every other normal 20 something, I reveled in the taste of that sweet liberation. And by reveled of course, I meant that I marathon-ed the heck out of my favorite TV shows in bed. I also watched Cinderella and I did love it but mostly I think it was the nostalgia and the dress-envy (So MANY gorgeous dresses) speaking. 

Post-Project-Proposal celebration also included ordering myself some EPIC books for my upcoming birthday (BEST PART OF BIRTHDAYS - ALL THE BOOKS). I will be saying goodbye to 21 and that makes me not-so-happy. But as I've been reminded multiple times I get to finally sing Taylor Swift's 22 and eat LOTS of cheesecake.

It's miserable and magical. 
Oh, yeah. 
Tonight's the night when we forget about the deadlines.

Here's to hoping that my 22 will be magical (I'm going to conveniently ignore that miserable part) because I've already gotten the forget about the deadlines part down to perfection!

I should just declare March as the month of Tessa Dare. I started out with Say Yes To The Marquess after reading Renae's review (also Julia Quinn blurbed it so HELL YES) and I fell hard. Empowered heroines + Swoon-worthy heroes + Lots of laughter + Witty One Liners = Happiness.

Andrew Post's The Fabrick Weavers series was a wonderful gem and I adored this part-fantasy, part-sci-fi series! Unfortunately both The Cemetery Boys and Playlist for the Dead failed to hit the mark.


Kimmy's wide-eyed positivism is so infectious and the bizarre but endearing series is a new favorite of mine!

I think here's something in the Irish waters because that's the only the explanation for the wonder that is Hozier. Not only are his vocals magnificent but DAYM he rocks the man bun and is AMAZING with his guitar. Take Me To Church will be on repeat for at least the next three months.

Instinct - Sherrilyn Kenyon
Son of No One - Sherrilyn Kenyon 
The Collector - Nora Roberts
Clash of Iron - Angus Watson 

Many thanks to Little Brown.

  • I'm super hyped for Home - The movie looks so precious and I couldn't stop the awwwws when I watched the trailer.
  • I'm way behind revising so I REALLY need to hit the books this month.
  • I absolutely cannot wait for the books I ordered to be delivered! Actually think of doing a re-read of The Raven Boys series since Blue Lily, Lily Blue is one of the books I ordered.

So tell me, how did March treat you? 

What are you looking forward to this April? 

Any exciting new things lined up? What are your personal/blogging goals for April?

  1. You sound just like me with your project. I'm horrible at making decisions and do everything last minute. I don't understand why I do that to myself all the time...
    I'm going to be sad about turning 22 this year as well. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and get ALL THE BOOKS your heart desires (:
    Unbreakable is on my queue. I really got to watch it already. Have you seen Daredevil on Netflix? I binged watched that so bad.
