March Wrap- Up and April TBR Pile!

I know I say this every month, but how is it the end of the month?! We're already a quarter through the year...which is terrifying. April is going to be super busy. I've got my university interview (and it was sprung on me less than 3 weeks before the time that I have to take a test, which I didn't know I'm super stressed about that); I'm starting to write my WIP after spending the majority of March planning it; I have quite a few arcs to get studying and writing will be the bulk of my April. I'm excited for one of those and apprehensive of both. 

March has been a good month. I've spent the majority of it painting, doing maths, and planning my WIP. I've decided I want to broaden my reading and delve into adult fiction. I've been exploring the adult fiction section of my library and it has me SO EXCITED. It reminds me of when I was little and I'd spend ages looking at each of the books, not knowing about any of the books and getting excited when I've found something that peaks my interest. If you have any adult fiction recommendations, please give me some! It's been a good month but boy, did it go quickly! Here are some of the paintings I've done this month, if you're interested in seeing them:

I've had an interesting reading month. I read non-fiction, middle-grade, YA, and adult fiction - look at me broadening my reading. I read a lot of good books this month. A Cold Day in the Sun, When Panic Attacks, The Mystery of the Jewelled Moth, Shatter Me, and Unravel Me were all amazing. The House at the Edge of Night was good, but I didn't feel as connected to he characters as I could've. There were moments where I was like "Wow, I love this", but there wasn't enough of it to make me fall completely in love with it. American Panda was funny and cute, but the writing style and the characters weren't developed enough for me to love it as much as I was hoping to. Crazy Rich Asians was funny and entertaining, but again, the writing and characters were underdeveloped. 

I'm so excited I finally got around to rereading Shatter Me! I literally read it in 2-3 hours - it's so fast-paced. Interestingly though, I didn't rate it as high as I did when I first read it 5 years ago. I first read it when I was 14-15, and it was one of the bests books I'd read that year. This time around, I felt Juliette annoying at times, the writing a bit much and the romance a little bit underdeveloped. That being said, it was still amazingly entertaining. Unravel Me was SO good though. Juliette had amazing character development. I loved the direction the plot went in. I loved getting to see more of was great. I still love Adam though, and I'm pretty sure Juliette won't end up with him. I've also just ordered the whole series (well, what's been published so far). I'm so excited!!! I've been wanting to buy them for ages! 

Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3)Restore Me (Shatter Me, #4)Sky in the Deep

I'm sure I'll get around to reading more than these three, but this is what I'll definitely be getting to this month! I'm obsessed with the Shatter Me series at the moment. I'm going to be so sad when it's over! 

What are you hoping to read in April? How was your reading month?
