After 2 weeks…

Hello everyone! Happy Monday. I am sorry to keep you all hanging for the past couple weeks. I have been having some mental health issues. So, I just had to step away to take care of that. But I am feeling much better now and am ready to catch you up. So today we are going to see what I read in March and plan to read in April!

So, in March, I read 8 books plus 3 audiobooks. I was not prepared for that number when I went gathering them up for the picture! 😀 There are 4 comics, 4 books and the one I am currently in the middle of. So I got all but This Savage Song read that was on my March tbr. I am pretty excited about that. I am currently in the middle of A Curse so Dark and Lonely. I started it with the Fairyloot readalong but decided I didn’t want to keep that schedule. But since I had started the book I needed to finish it. Lol. I also added 2 comics, Fables and Ms Marvel Vol 3. They were great! As always.

Pss.. I can’t figure out how to rotate this picture. It won’t let me like the other one… :/

Onto April! So I have these on my tbr right now. Along with the Tahereh Mafi ebook Shadow Me, I want to read that before I jump into Defy Me. I am also really excited to jump back into the world of The Rook in Stiletto! And since I was having some of my own issues I decided to pick up 10% Happier, and do some mental wellness. 🙂

Well I hope today’s post was everything you wanted. Once again I am sorry I didn’t get around to posting the last couple of weeks but since I am on the road to wellness hopefully I won’t have too many more bouts.

Outlander

Hello Hello! I hope it is just as nice outside wherever you are as it is here in Kansas. Today it is a beautiful 60 degree day with very little wind. I better enjoy it while it lasts.

I wanted to talk about the Outlander series today! I love this series and am currently reading it for a second time. Well, listening to it. I binged all 8 books last year on audible (1 a month, plus one of the Lord John novellas but I didn’t really care for that spin off). I started listening to it again because I started training for a 5k and wanted something other than music to listen to and since the first book is just over 40 hours I knew it would be plenty long to get me through.

Picture from Google.

If you haven’t heard of Outlander (also a show on STARZ) it is a romance time-travel series. The main character, Claire, is on vacation with her husband Frank before settling down in their first house after the war in 1945 in Scotland. She goes to this stone circle and steps through an invisible portal that takes her back to 1745 in the middle of another war. There she stumbles upon Franks great-great-great-etc grandfather Randall, who promptly tries(kinda) to rape her. Then she gets kidnapped by the Scots and lands herself patching up a young fellow named Jamie (she was a nurse during war times).

And that is all I am going to say any more would be spoiling it. But I thought since I am about 6 hours into the audio book (approx 150 pages) I would mention it. I hardly ever, if never, reread books. There are just so many new ones I want to get my hands on.

What books do you go back to time and time again? Any books you would like to reread but cant bring yourself to, for whatever reason? What are some of your favorite books on audio? Let me know in the comments or find me on Insta @ positivityandbooks or on Litsy @ Ryeannuh

March TBR

Hope everyone is having a good Monday! I am just lounging around, cleaning up a bit and going to rearrange my bookshelves.

So this year I have been doing something different with my TBR. Instead of just staring at my shelves until something looks good, or picking a number and then another number to narrow down to a shelf and then to a particular book I have been actually picking out my books ahead of time! :O Ive actually never done this before, unless I bought a book then I usually just pick it up right then. So, at the beginning of every month I’ll share with you what I plan on reading.

This month I started out finishing Dear Martin by Nic Stone, but I finished that right after I woke up on the 1st. Now I am reading The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige. Hopefully I will finish that in the next day or too, it is pretty short, under 300 pages. After that here is what I plan on reading.

So I have 4 books more books for the month plus an extra just in case. But I am also getting the Shades of Magic comic/graphic novel tomorrow so that will be on there as well. I plan on reading Ms. Marvel Vol 2, The Rook, Treacherous Love and The Phantom Tollbooth. And This Savage Song will be a reward if I finish all of those other books, or my first book of April.
