My very good friend and fellow blogger Ebony changed her blog name from The Book Bee. She now calls her blog "Paperbacks & Protagonists" what a cool blogname!

I read my very first new adult novel, and I loved it!

I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award, see my post here and who I nominated, I really appreciate Michelle Reed taking the time to nominate me and I can't express how honoured I felt.

I turned 17 March 2. and I got a bunch of books! (Birthday Book Haul: Part 1 | Part 2)

I went back to reading books for pleasure, you can read all about it here

I reached 50+ followers/readers and I'm so proud! ^^

I hosted my very first giveaway! 

Instagram! I joined instagram back in February, but I didn't really use it - that changed this month though! If you want to know which books I get, which book I am currently reading or just finished, sneak peaks or anything along those lines, then follow me (I follow back).

Everything else

Clare-a-thon which takes place from April 17th to April 23rd. You can sign up here if you want. It's just your normal read-a-thon but this time you have to read ONLY Cassandra Clare books. I am going to be reading the Infernal Devices trilogy and maybe continue with Mortal Instruments... I am not so sure about though. 

I am also looking forward to the #YearAThon. The theme this month is re-reads, so I am hopefully going to continue re-reading The Order of the Phoenix (which I started in February) and maybe re-read The Half-Blood Prince. 

Our last bookclub meeting! This is kind of bittersweet because I am sad that it's already over, but I really enjoy these meetings and talking to all of these wonderful people. 

(if you click on the cover it will take you to their goodreads page)

The TBR Jar pick for this month was: How to Love, and I am very happy about that! I really really want to read it!
I know I put The Well of Ascension on my TBR last month, but I never got around to it because it's so massive.. For the month of April I've made a schedule, so I have to read 25-35 pages a day and when the month is over I will have completed it!
I also have to read How to be Good by Nick Hornby for my bookclub and me and Ebony from Paperbacks & Protagonists are doing a readalong with These Broken Stars.

How did you do this month?
