Spread the love

*Welcome to my March 2019 tbr and reading goals. I will briefly list the books I want to read and then talk about my goals for the month. If you have an iPhone, I have a life hack that can get you reading more books this month.

It's time for my March 2019 TBR and reading goals! One of my favorite goals this month is to read more with the help of the Screen Time app on my iPhone.

The books I plan to read.

Books I’ve already finished because this post is late.

Shadow and Bone, by Leigh Bardugo
I’ve actually already read this one. I loved it! It’s a great entry into the world of the Grishaverse. It was really well written and I liked it quite a bit. It was full of action for the most part. Oh and monsters parading as handsome men. I read this book for the Modern Mrs. Darcy 2019 Reading Challenge.

A Curse So Dark and Lonely, by Brigid Kemmerer
Again, because this post is late, I have already read this book. And it was the best! I have never read a more perfect Beauty and the Beast retelling. If you love strong female characters, then this one is for you.

The Bullet Journal Method, by Ryder Caroll
I was not planning to read this, but I had a hold for it on Libby and it was auto-borrowed for me. (If any of you know how to turn that off, could you help a girl out?) I did start reading it and it’s ok. I’ll have more to say on it for my monthly book chat later this month.

Books I’m going to read this month.

The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm, by Christopher Paolini
The newest book set in the world of Alegasia is finally here! It’s been sitting on my shelf since the beginning of January and I need to read it. I’m excited to join Shaphira and Eragon again. I also picked this book for the TCS Reading Challenge.

Enchantée, by Gita Trelease
I was lucky to get this book in my February LitJoy Crate. I’m really excited to read this book as I know nothing about the French court during the time of Marie Antoinette. There’s magic involved so it’s going to be fun.

Crown of Feathers, by Nicki Pau Preto
I got this book in my February Owlcrate and it’s so beautiful! Aside from that I’m really excited to read this story about sisters.

Reading People, by Anne Bogel
This is one of my picks for the TCS 2019 Reading Challenge. This book deals with the link between our reading lives and our personalities.

Books I still want to read, but only if I finish the others first.

Muse of Nightmares, by Laini Taylor
I read Strange the Dreamer last month and it was beautiful. I have never (ok, that I can remember) been so enamored with a world or with a main character such as Lazlo Strange. The end of the Strange the Dreamer ended on such a sad note that I need to find out what happens.

The Song Rising, by Samantha Shannon
The latest book in The Bone Season series and I’m very anxious to get this one started. The cliffhanger at the end of The Mime Order had me all in a tizzy so I need to read this one asap.

The Cruel Prince, by Holly Black
I haven’t had this book for very long, but #bookstagram is making me want to read it pretty bad. I know literally nothing about it, which is shocking considering the buzz when The Wicked King came out a few weeks ago.

Think, Learn, Succeed, by Dr. Caroline Leaf
I am continuing this read from last month. I’m doing it along with Dr. Leaf’s book club and YouTube videos. I am loving this reread. I think there are more page markers than book at the moment, but there are so many good things I’m learning.

Reading goals for March 2019.

One of the biggest goals I have set for myself for this month is to read more. I would love to get through 10+ books a month and I know I can if I stop wasting time.

If any of you have a newer iPhone then you should all know about Screen Time. Like a good screen addict I ignored it for a while, but last week I checked it to see where I was spending my time.

I was not pleased with the results. I was spending the equivalent of a whole day on my phone. Um….what?! There are only 7 days in a week and I was spending one of them on my phone. Doing what?

It’s no wonder I never had enough time to read. I was spending all of my free time on my stupid phone. Since that day I have removed all of the games from my phone and I have set a limit on how long I can use Instagram during a 24 hour period. I think I use Instagram even less because now I’m worried about running out of time and then actually needing to use it. 😂

Other reading goals.

With time limits set on my phone, I now have time to make progress on my other reading goals.

I want to read 10 books this month, more if I can. And of those books I want most of them to be unread from my bookshelves. Book buying is a big thing with me, but I don’t buy them just to have them. I buy them because I want to read them. My aim is to keep my unread books below 50. I’m way above that now, so I have some reading to do.

That’s all from me this time.

Happy reading loves,

Alicen
