I didn’t post at all in March, but I did read a lot of books. Eight books to be exact! So since I have been too crazy and busy to post full length reviews, check out these awesome mini-reviews in my March Wrap Up!
My rating system works as follows: a scale of 1-5 hearts, 5 being the highest meaning I absolutely loved the book, and 1 being the lowest meaning I didn’t like the book at all.
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
I read the first two books in this trilogy last year and finally picked up the last book. I found Ruin and Rising to be an interesting ending to this fantasy adventure. While Alina sometimes grated on my nerves, I really liked the emotional journey that she undertook in this book. It wasn’t my favorite in the trilogy (#1 was) but I really liked it.
March was a very fun and exciting month for Amanda’s Nose in a Book!
This blog reached 100 WordPress followers and was nominated for three Liebster Blog Awards. I successfully blogged nearly every day (giving myself only a handful of much-needed days off) and read and commented on many blog posts written by other book bloggers.
I reviewed the following books:
I started a new feature, called “Confessions of a Book Blogger”
I also committed myself to two writing challenges for the month of April.
1. Camp NaNoWriMo
- I Am An Official Participant of Camp NaNoWriMo— What Am I, Crazy?!?
- Amanda’s Camp NaNoWriMo Survival Kit
- Camp NaNoWriMo- I am so ready!
2. The A-Z Challenge
What you can expect from Amanda’s Nose in a Book in April:
- Lots of A-Z challenge posts that discuss bookish topics from A-Z
- Posts about Camp NaNoWriMo and my progress
- Posts about my trip to visit my friend Tracy in Poughkeepsie (which I am doing later on this week!)
- A couple of book reviews or discussions
I am going to be focusing on writing this coming month, so I will talk a lot about that, but there will be some other bookish surprises thrown in there as well.
What would you like to see in April from Amanda’s Nose in a Book?
This past month has been the best I have ever had on Amanda’s Nose in a book. I’ve had a busy month full of books, writing, and getting to know the book blogging community a little bit better. I’m really enjoying myself and it’s great to talk about something that I am really passionate about.
Let’s take a peek back at what went on during February.
I read quite a few books, more than I even planned on,

Next month, my goal is to read 4 or 5 books, get a read handle on the revisions for my novel (working on closing up those pesky plot holes), post here at least 5 times a week, and *hopefully* start a crafting/DIY blog.
