Much to my own astonishment, I picked up seven books this month. I say astonishment because I’ve been combating a bit of a reading slump these past couple of weeks. I could read, but I really had to make myself pick up a book. This month I participated in a readalong of Jane Austen’s Emma which I found so enjoyable. I’m planning on taking a little blogging hiatus in April, so you can look for that post around the 12th. I feel myself falling into a blogging/reading funk and I don’t want to continue to force myself into finishing posts/books. This month I also posted my book haul for the last three months and surprisingly, I wasn’t as out of control as I thought I was. Progress, people.

Favorite Book This Month:
If you’re breathing, you’ve probably heard of Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give. If this book isn’t on your TBR, it needs to be. Buy it. Request it. Read it.
Least Favorite Book This Month:
All the books I read this month received a positive rating from me.
