Monthly Reflections ~ March 2018

Monthly Reflections, where we take the time to reflect on the previous month.

How I Did With My March Goals:
  • Read 1 Nonfiction
  • Read the remaining 8 books from my Winter TBR Pile.
  • Increase my NetGalley score by at least 2%.
I didn't finish any nonfiction books (although I did read about half of one).
I was only able to read 1 more book from my Winter TBR Pile, so I ended the challenge with 5 of the 12 books off my TBR.
I increased my NetGalley score by 3% -- from 53% to 56% currently.

Books Read In March:
(Book covers link to their page on Amazon, if you want to read more about them)

Favorite Read of the Month: 
It's very hard to choose a favorite read for March. I absolutely loved several of these...yeah, I can't pick a favorite.

Some Books I Added to My TBR Pile In March:

-Get NetGalley ratio to 65%
  • Currently at 56% (Increased 3%)
-Finish at least 12 nonfiction books (hopefully 1 each month).
  •  0/12
-Finish at least 5 series.
  •  2/5
-Finish at least 20 Love Inspired books.
  • 6/20
Finished 1 out of the 10 books in March. 

My Goals for April:
  • Finish 2 nonfiction
  • Get Netgalley score to 60% (might be a little too high of a goal, but I'm going to try!)
  • Finish at least 1 series

  1. Is it easy to get on to Netgalley? Do you have to have a blog?
    I’m reviewing for several publishing houses and authors. Ivthink I looked into it at one time.
    I have read A Most Noble Heir and Across the Blue and Fugitive Spy and I would like to read about five more from your lists. I need more hours in the day! Thanks for the post.

    1. I signed up years ago, but I remember it being easy to join. I don't think you have to have a blog. There are lots of good books on there, so if you decide to join I'm sure you will discover even more great reads. :)
