What Crazy and Busy March Brought

It's...been awhile.

March was a good month! Sadly, just not reading or blogging wise. I had tons of fun, even with the stress and tiredness that comes with it. If you read last month's post, you know I entered a writing contest, and I was so hoping to win...and I didn't. It wasn't entirely surprising, but at the same time, it was very disheartening. I had a brief period(by brief, I'm talking like two hours) where I just walked around not too unlike a zombie. But then I realized better things will come and moping won't help me. I also did tons of art things this month-that's where some of the stress and tiredness came from. I got first place in a category, which was fan-freakin-tastic. I wish I could say April is going to be much better, but yeah, with the ACTs and the loads of homework I have at the isn't looking the greatest. I'm not saying I'm not going to try to blog-I will, I promise-but please don't be angry at me if I happen to only post once or twice or nothing at all.

Here's what I read:

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas(I feel absolutely terrible for deciding to DNF this, but there was something about it that didn't catch my attention like Throne of Glass. I plan on reading the whole thing when it's actually released, but the first 100 pages weren't as good as I was expecting. The classic too-high-of-expectations-ruin-a-book-for-you. I expect everyone will love this as much if not more than Throne of Glass, but I was really hoping for more swooniness or even sword fighting during the first 100 pages.)

Here's what I received:
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas(Won from the wonderful and awesome Shae)
Lion Heart by A. G. Gaughen(Won also from Shae)
Blythewood by Carol Goodman(Given to me by the so sweet and generous Tammy George)
Confess by Colleen Hoover(Also given to me by Tammy)
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows(Pre-ordered via Amazon)
The Caged Graves by Dianne K. Salerni(Bought via Amazon)
The Raging Quiet by Sherryl Jordan(Bought via Amazon)
Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman(Won from Gone Pecan)

Here's what I watched:
I admit, I watched too much TV(part of the reason why I didn't finish one book last month), and I'm too lazy to list them all.

Here's what I listened to:
Misterwives(I became overwhelmingly obsessed with them.)
Mikky Ekko(His music seriously moves me like no other. I started becoming obsessed when the Paper Towns trailer came out and his song came on and I fell in love.)
The rest of the songs I listened didn't really become an
