Stefanie's March Wrap Up

Hi everyone,

I feel like I was kind of absent on the blog this month; with moving and getting sick, life just seemed to get in the way of blogging and reading. I really didn’t read that much this much either; I fell into a reading slump and nothing I read seemed to be the right book for me. I haven’t really experienced a reading slump that bad before. Thankfully I was able to break it by reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and continuing into my obsession of British reality shows by reading Charlotte Crosby’s book. She’s from Geordie Shore and I loved it, so I followed it up by reading two more biographies from my all-time favourite group Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh and Cheryl Cole. I don't tend to read biographies of well-known people and it's rare for me to actually enjoy them, so this was a big moment for my reading.

What I Watched: 

I was able to see the new Beauty and the Beast movie with my sister during this month. It was actually pretty good. I know I’ll be in arguments about this movie with people because I am obsessed with the animated one. The new song Evermore by Dan Stevens is the highlight from the movie; his version was so good and he has such a great singing voice. The visuals were great too and I loved the inclusion of the feather duster (who I felt needed a bigger role in the animated version). I recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it yet. Power Rangers on the other hand, not so much.... I've been binge watching Imposters trying to catch up and enjoying the return of Prison Break!

Books of the Month:


Fantastic Beasts and Bookman Dead Style (cozy mystery)
I had a hard time choosing between the two of them so I decided to just pick both, shout out to The Possessions for being one of the weirdest books I have read in a long time.

I kind of fell off the re-read challenge I had given myself; I think I’ll be able to pick back up on that in the summertime when all of TV is in repeats and I read like a madwoman. I feel like after I moved and displayed all my books I have so many more books I want to read and re-read. I wish I could read as fast as Spencer Reid on Criminal Minds and then my tbr would be completed and I could just focused on reading as many random books as possible. I’m bad for that when I go to the library and just walk into the fiction section and leave with a bag full of books I hadn’t heard of before.

I hope April will be more eventful in the book department and I hope I can read more. I hope everyone had a great March!



  1. I'm one of those people who rarely watch tv so I think that's why I'm ahead on my reading challenge. I know nothing about tv shows to watch or tv series to follow. Lol.

    I hope you'll fare better in April, though. Have a great month, Stefanie!

  2. I've started to just PVR series like crazy, it's a bit of an issue actually!

  3. I watched Beauty and the Beast a week after it was released and really enjoyed it. Lol, I'm behind on all the TV shows I usually watch ... and usually catch up on them in the summer :P


I love comments! So please leave them and I will make every attempt to return the favor!
