April wasn’t my best reading month. I had a lot going on with report cards and also starting my second teacher librarian course. It meant that I didn’t have as much free time as I wanted to read, but I did read a few good things. Let’s just jump into it!
I had a pretty good reading month in March. I’m really satisfied with the things that I read, though I do wish that I had been able to read even more since I was off for spring break. I had wanted to do a 24 hour readathon on my own, but I never got around to it. Things just got a bit too busy. Oh well. Let’s jump into everything I hauled and read in March!

I turned thirty on Friday, and so it’s time for another one of my reading challenges to myself. I didn’t do the best on my challenge from the previous year, but I like the challenge and I like trying to check books off of my physical TBR. I have a large personal library, and while I have read a lot of them, there’s always more to read. Below the cut you’ll find my list of 30 books I want to read before my 31st birthday.
November was a really interesting month for me. I read a lot of books, but I also didn’t have nearly as much time for reading as I usually do as I started a course on becoming a teacher librarian. It’s really interesting, but with that on top of teaching full time, I didn’t get as much reading as I wanted to done. However, I’m still happy with what I read. Let’s jump into it.
It’s been just about six months since my birthday, so I thought it would be a good time to do a quick update on how many books from my 29 Reads for My 29th Year post. If I have read it, I’ll give it a quick review.
I didn’t do a TBR in May because I had disappointed myself the previous month by not achieving all of the TBR challenge prompts I was supposed to do. I didn’t do that in May either. I technically read books that applied to all the prompts but I didn’t read all of the books I had planned for the prompts. However, I still kind of wanted to do this post because I like talking about the books that I’m going to read. So I will do so below the cut. However, I want to emphasize that I don’t plan on reading all of these, but I know I will get to a fair few of them.
March was a good month. I ended up reading a bunch and I enjoyed almost all of the things that I read. I picked up some exciting books and I’m feeling really good about how things went!
