Another month is drawing to an end and it’s time to look back on what I’ve accomplish this month so far!
March 2019 was a whirlwind of activity for me. A lot happened in my personal life that greatly affected my life in the book community as well. Here are some of the stuff that happened to me this march (Yes I am trying to give excuses for being MIA)
- FINAL EXAMS – My final exams happened this month and I was so nervous! It was my last exam for the school year so of course I had to do my best.
- SCHOOL ACTIVITIES – We had a round of school activities this March that we’ve been practicing and rehearsing for since mid-February, and although I’m terribly exhausted, the fun and results of effort was worth it!
- SCHOOL OUTPUTS – Just before the year ends, I had to make sure I complied everything that is school-related–passed projects, returned borrowed books, and have y clearance signed.
Because of my busy schedule, I hadn’t been as active here in the blogging community as I would have liked, but I *tried* to make up for it by posting consecutively a few days ago.
Anyway, today is not the time to dwell on my troubles. In fact, I should be celebrating my accomplishments! So without further ado, I’ll list down some of my achievements this March:
Despite how busy I am, I managed to read 4 books this month–not bad!
- Beware the Night by Jessika Fleck
- Meet Me in Outer Space by Melinda Grace
- The Wicked King by Holly Black
- Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

One of the reasons why March is so special to me is because I was able to attend my second virtual summit (My first one was LibraryConLIVE) which is Middle Grade Magic. In case you missed it, the virtual environment is still available on demand. If you want to visit it, click the link below.
I had a fun experience, I go to visit panels and watch videos of some of my favorite childhood authors. I’m not even guilty to share that I enjoyed the free printable swag I got from the Resource Center. I particularly enjoyed the activity sheets, bookmarks, and samplers and me and my brother didn’t hesitate to use them right away!
I also received free digital ARCs from the event. I won’t dive in any further but worry not because I will be doing a post about Middle Grade Magic soon so stay tuned!
I found my way back to bookstagram (YAY! *throws confetti all around*) but I’m still not active, even now as I write this post.
As I grow more inactive on IG, I found myself actually enjoying Twitter. I used to hate (well, not exactly hate, probably just disapprove) it because it was all words but isn’t that one of the reasons why I love books? I found myself spending an unhealthy amount of time on Twitter. New obsession perhaps?
I met some new authors and fellow bloggers! I got to know my possibly new fave author which is Coco Ma. She has an amazing upcoming YA book called Shadow Frost that you should pre-order right now (yes I’m plugging but seriously you should) or perhaps you should request it on NetGalley or Edelweiss and review it! The cover is gorgeous. Just sayin’ haha.
I got to discover even more book blogs this month. You can check the m out on my Directory.
All in all, March was a month that really tested my vulnerability and patience. Well, looks like I aced that test! I look forward to more months full of effort and hardwork but with fruitful results.
