I feel like April was probably the most contemporary fiction I've read in such a short amount of time, and many of these books deal with serious problems, so it was a pretty emotional 30 days! Overall, I loved the honesty of each of these books and thought all the authors did a great job. I loved the majority of the books I reviewed this month, and I hope (if you read any of them) that you do too!
We are officially a quarter of the way through 2018 -- which is crazy! Unlike February, March felt like it lasted for ever. I was definitely ready to reach the end of the month and jump into April. I'm really excited for all the books I'm going to be posting about in April (some of them I've been waiting for forever), but I also wanted to take a second to do a quick wrap-up of all the books I've reviewed in March. If you didn't see the original reviews, here are quick summaries and links to the full review!
Wow, we're already in March! February really flew by (I'm sure part of that is because it's a short month) and I read some really great books... and some that I enjoyed, but didn't live up to my expectations. So, here's a quick wrap-up of the books I've read and posted about this month!
There are so many things that I always want to try, but never actually make time to do: create an efficient space under my washroom sink, DIY crafts, host a party with cute signature drinks, etc. At the top of the list is actually trying to make some of the desserts that I’m always pinning to my Pinterest board!
With the start of the new year (and wow, I can't believe it's 2018!!) I thought I’d actually try to accomplish one of these goals by trying to make one of the no-bake pie recipes I had pinned. It ended up being super easy to make and everyone LOVED IT. I’ve now made it a bunch of times to bring to different events, each time testing different toppings to see what comes out the best.
I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by! And while I’ve only had this blog running since the end of September this year, I’ve read so many amazing books, some of which I didn’t have the chance to write about. So in honour of there only being a few days left of this year, here's a countdown of my 5 favourite books of 2017!

My Rating: 4.5/5
Hi, I'm Alexandra! I love reading (largely YA fiction, but sometimes I'll read "adult" books), playing board games, Nutella, and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix with my husband.
