Rowena’s Monthly Recap: March 2020

Posted April 15, 2020 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

The Monthly Recap posts are a way for me to take a look back and reflect on my previous month in books. From the books that I read, the books that I got, and the books that I need to read. I always lose track of what I have, what I need to read and I need these posts to keep me honest with myself because I be forgetting shit. I also need a list of the reviews that I wrote/posted each month because one of my goals is to write a review for every book that I read. Listing these out every month helps me.

So here’s what my March 2020 month in books looked like.
