March Rewind & Review

Hosted by Bookshelvers Anonymous
Guys. I always feel as if the next month cannot top the month before. I thought, "February was loaded with books and I felt bookishly full and happy. How can March be better?" Then March was all: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

 I was only able to go to my local (fantastic) thrift store once, but I plan to be going next week so April's haul will probably be much bigger. Overall, I'm very pleased with how my month has gone. I hope to review more and brainstorm for more "fun posts." 

STAY TUNED:  Tomorrow I will broadcast my post for the Attack of the Assassins blog tour where I will be interviewing the author, Robin LaFevers. 

Hope you all had a lovely March and and will have an even better April!
