I cannot believe we’re already at the end of March – this month feels like it’s flown by! This was my first full month back to blogging and I have to say I am loving it! Not only did I relaunch my blog this month, but I also launched my bookstagram @overflowingshelf and I’ve been having so much fun.
My whole reason for my blog and Instagram was to connect with other readers as I missed talking about books with people as passionate about them as I am. Thank you to everyone who has followed and come along on this journey so far – it’s been a blast and I’m hoping to keep it up for as long as I can!
With that out of the way, let’s dive into the March recap!
What I Read
March was a decent month for me as I managed to read 8 books, bringing my total up to 26 for the whole year.
Veronica Speedwell Series by Deanna Raybourn
The first book I read this month was actually a reread of A Murderous Relation by Deanna Raybourn to finish up my reread of the Veronica Speedwell series in preparation for the release of An Unexpected Peril. A Murderous Relation isn’t my favorite book in the Veronica Speedwell series, but I did appreciate it more upon this reread. An Unexpected Peril, which released in March, was everything I wanted and more. I loved it so much! Keep an eye out for my review of both A Murderous Relation and An Unexpected Peril in April!
Float Plan by Trish Doller
Float Plan was another March release that I ended up loving. This book left me crying happy and sad tears and I cannot recommend it enough. It’s definitely not an easy read, but one that I think is still worth your time. This is also Trish Doller’s adult romance debut and if you enjoy this, go check out her YA novels as well as they’re amazing.
The Heiress Hunt by Joanna Shupe
Another March release! I’m a big fan of Joanna Shupe – when I think Gilded Age romance my brain goes to her immediately – and I wanted to like this one. Unfortunately, The Heiress Hunt was not for me as I could not stand the hero at all. I’m hopefully that I’ll enjoy the next book in the series though as the secondary characters were intriguing and I’d love to see more Gilded Age Newport!

The Wallflower Series by Lisa Kleypas
I closed out the month by devouring the Wallflower series by Lisa Kleypas. These are definitely older romances, but overall, I really enjoyed the series. My favorite of the bunch was It Happened One Autumn as I loved Lillian and Westcliff so much – it was the perfect enemies-to-lovers story. Keep an eye out on the blog in April for full reviews of the series!

Overall, March was a great month for me on the blog and for reading. I don’t follow a TBR list as I’m very much a mood reader but I’m super happy with how much I go to! What did you read this March? Did you hit your reading goals if you had them?
