Hello lovelies! How are you? I hope you had a lovely March! I don’t know what was up with this month, but I feel like everyone’s blogging game got a glo up.
Let’s not talk about how I didn’t post for over a week and am still behind on everything. I read so many wonderful and inspiring posts this month, so this is gonna be a pretty long list.
Charlotte @ Reads Rainbow created the best themed recommendation list ever: LGBT reads about witches and other magic doers.
Acqua @ Acquadimore Books shared an amazing list of recommendations for fans of Shadow and Bone (aka me.)
Kathy @ Pages Below the Vaulted Sky wrote a beautiful review of Do You Dream of Terra-Two? and made me fall in love with another book I haven’t read.
Rahcel @ Pace, Amore, Libri encouraged us all to read more women and recommended books by women based on books you’ve read by men.
Olivia @ Purely Olivia wrote about 5 contemparies to read this spring and I may or may not have bought half of them as a direct result. (ok, I definitley did)

Marie @ Drizzel & Hurricane Books wrote a wonderful post about interacting with the book community.
Cerys @ Browsing for Books wrote a really cool post with 5 book recommendations for non-stereotypical Slytherins. (She also did Hufflepuff, but I mostly care about Slyhterin cause I’m just self involved like that)
Carly @ Reading is My Kind of Thing fed my Slytherin soul with her post about 5 characters who embody Slytherin
Ren Strange @ Strangely Pop Cultured also shared 5 characters who embody Slytherin and her list included some true Slytherin queens (because she is one, duh)
