What I’m Up To
March was a full month for me! The first half of March I was on spring break, but I came back to school on the 19th, which coincidentally was also my birthday. School has been busy, but it’s great to be around friends and semi-warm weather.
What I’m Reading
I don’t normally read nonfiction, but I was given this book as a Christmas gift and I’m always excited to learn more about art history. So far, I’ve been loving Krysa’s vibrant profiles of female artists, which are each paired with an artistic prompt for the reader to explore individually.
What I Blogged About
Reflections on Turning 16: I turned 16 on March 19, so I took the chance to reflect on my growth as a person and Book Reviews by Ava’s growth as a blog.
Fruit of the Drunken Tree by Ingrid Rojas Contreras: Contreras’ novel debut was incredible and her chronicle of two teenage girls during a time of intense civil conflict was both gripping and poignant.
I know, I know, only two posts this month! I am so sorry, but I have been very busy with school and other things. April will have weekly posts and reviews, I promise.
What I’m Looking Forward to in April
April 2: Defy Me by Tahereh Mafi hits shelves. I’m a little hesitant to read Mafi’s latest because I thought the series had a nice conclusion 5 years ago, but I’m excited to give it a shot.
April 9: How to Make Friends With the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow comes out. Glasgow’s latest is about a girl coping with the loss of her mother, and as someone who has experienced that, I’m curious to see Glasgow’s take.
April 14: The first episode of Game of Thrones Season Eight is released! I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan, so I can’t wait to see what’s in store for my favorite characters this season (I’m rooting for Sansa).
