March 2015 Wrap Up/Favorites

So March marks the end of my winter quarter and my spring break, the highlight of which I got to go to Disneyland! March was a very mixed reading month for me and I think a large part was that I have so many books I want to read and I feel like I’m not reading fast enough even though I shouldn’t be thinking of how fast I’m reading a book. I should savor each book. Also, I think my mood for books changes so quickly. One minute I’ll feel like reading a YA contemporary, the next I’ll feel like reading horror. I think for April, I have to tell myself to slow down and really “listen” to what I’m reading.

So here are all the books I read this month with my star rating on Goodreads. I’ve included a short story I read. I’ve also included some miscellaneous favorites at the bottom. Let me know if you’ve read/watched anything on this list!
