March Wrap up - Book Haul & What to Expect Next Month

Welcome, welcome!

Thanks for stopping by to read my March Wrap up. 
Time is going by so fast! I had a pretty good reading month. I have been reading some long books, so page wise I did pretty good.

I'm slowly reading through my TBR-pile, it could go faster, but I also want to read books that I want to read, instead of only doing requested reviews.

There is a Giveaway to be held on my blog on April 8th for Petra Landon's new book that I reviewed this month.

Hope to see you back by then, because I will be giving away 1 signed paperback copy and 2 ebooks!

Have a great month.
I'm going to enjoy the Spring weather over here, I hope you do get a lot of sun as well. ☀

Unboxing: Celebrate Books - Murder Girls

Yay! Another month, another Celebrate Books Box. This month's theme is Murder Girls. I LOVE the box. It felt so heavy and I'm so happy with all the goodies that are in this box. Have been crying a little bit just now, because the March box is SOLD OUT and I had to wait for my paycheck.. 😢 No unboxing for the March box, sadly. But, I will be doing the February Box; Murder Girls, right now. Let's go!
