Monday Maunder: March in Review

Happy, Happy Monday!

Now that the month of March is officially over, I thought I would share a little wrap-up for the month - what I've read, the top posts on the site, and the top picture from Instagram.  If you want to hear anything more, just let me know and I will answer in the comments and consider including the information in future monthly wrap-ups!

The TOP POST for the month was none other than my Bloggiesta Challenge on Getting Organized {Evernote + More}!  I am not surprised at all that this was the one with not only the most comments, but also the most hits for the month.

The TOP PIC surprises me a little bit!  It was not my personal favorite from the month, but I can't argue that it was my Insta-friend favorite.  A little back story on the picture ... my family went out for an evening adventure to a small fossil gorge.  We explored and I took a few pictures along the way.

Finally, here is a list of my BOOKS READ for the month . . .
  1. Ivy and Bean Break the Fossil Record by Annie Barrows
  2. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
  3. Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi 
  4. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
  5. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling 
  6. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
  7. Chew #1:  Taster's Choice by John Layman
I consider that a pretty good reading month, especially compared to last month.  The best news is that I am currently ahead of my reading goal for the year, too!  At the time of this posting, I have read a total of 21 books for the year!  Woohoo!!

Before I sign off for the week, I will leave you with a quick current reading update . . . I finished Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones and am over halfway through The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.  I am going to log off now so I can go read more of the latter!

How was your March?  Any highlights you want to share?  How about your current reading?


  1. Oooh, I really liked The Language of Flowers!

    1. Charleen Lynette ... I am really liking it so far too! I stayed up late reading it last night and am almost done with it!

  2. Congrats on being ahead of your reading goal! That's great! I'm on target right now, so hoping to get ahead so I can have a little wiggle room. Here's to a great April!

    1. Alexia561 ... I'm hoping to get ahead too. With another upcoming move, I don't know if I will be able to stay ahead and definitely need the wiggle room!

  3. I didn't do a wrap-up for March on my reading, but it was okay. There were a few good books, but only one outstanding and that was a reread: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.

    1. Bryan G. Robinson ... You know, I actually have that book somewhere, but have never read it. I really need to get to it.
