Hello Gemmies! Can you believe it's already March? This year is really flying by. The weather has been super warm here in North Carolina, and I'm contemplating a nice beach weekend getaway to read some favs by the water. I had a surprising reading month. I was able to read a total of 18 books in March. This month I set two goals for myself.
1. Continue to read the Chicagoland Vampire Series
2. Start the Zodiac Academy Series
So my first goal went to pot and that is thanks to my second goal (see more details below). I wanted to continue to read the Chicagoland Vampire Series so I can get all thirteen books in the original series and, the first three books in the spin off series read in preparation for the release of book four, Devouring Darkness in September. This also hits one of my yearly goals to read at least one vampy book each month. I wasn't able to do that this month but I can always try again next month!
I have heard so much about the Zodiac Academy series, so for my second goal I decided to start reading the series this month. I intended to only read the first book. Instead I ended up going down a rabbit hole and read the first six books in the series! And then I had the nerve to read the prequel spin off series...Ruthless Boys Of The Zodiac! I'm not a fan of bully romances so I didn't expect to love the Zodiac Academy series at all, and to be honest the first book The Awakening was a little tough to take at times. But man, this story and these characters are so addicting! There is so much drama, action, heartbreak, and twists and turns. There is also a surprising amount of humorous moments. Each book ends on a cliffhanger so be prepared to binge your way through these beauties. There are eight books in total in the series. Books 1-7 are available for purchase now. Book eight will release on December 11, 2022. I literally had to stop my self at book six because I'm too scared to be left on a cliffhanger with book seven (Heartless Sky). I'll do a separate blog post on the series to get more in-depth on my feelings. All I can say is it is freaking great! Same with the prequel spin off series....Ruthless Boys Of The Zodiac.
For my overall reading experience, I had a pretty great start to the year. I really enjoyed everything I read this month. Every title was at least 3 gems and up. Here is the full list of everything I read in March. I usually break up my titles by Manga / Graphic Novels and Books, but I did not read any manga this month.
