Monthly Reflections #3: March 2012

Photobucket
Hosted by: Christian Bookshelf Reviews

March wasn't as exceptional as January and February but it wasn't anything to sneeze at either! I read 15 books, wrote 26 blog posts including 6 book reviews, and joined 1 one challenge. I tried to read more but we had a bunch of stuff going on almost everyday so reading wasn't as high a priority!

Books I Read

My favorite book is a toss-up between The Wedding Dress and The Chase. They were both amazing and wonderful books to read!

Reviews I Wrote
The Shadow of Your Smile by Susan May Warren
Washington's Lady by Nancy Moser
The Messenger by Siri Mitchell (CFBA)
Dawn Comes Early by Margaret Brownley (Booksneze)
The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck (Booksneeze)
The Chase by DiAnn Mills (CFBA)

Challenges Progress
I just wrote a full update post! Check it out HERE.

Blog Awards
My first!!!!!

I was awarded this by Melanie and I was also tagged by her!


In April I Hope To:
I decided to set much more realistic goals this time!
Read at least 15 books
Write at least 8 reviews

Congrats on so many posts! Your review to total posts ratio is an encouragement as I didn't write that many review either. March was just busy! Bayou Brides looks neat. And how do you get that nice collage of covers? Please share your secret!

Rina I use a free photo editing download called Photoscape. You can download it here:

After finding and saving book covers on google images I just use the combine option which is simply a drag drop and save process!

I wish I had read that many books in March! I finished my ninth book a couple of hours ago (just making my goal)!

The Chase was great and I really want to read The Wedding Dress! :)

Thanks for participating in Monthly Reflections, Abbi! :)

Thanks Abbi! Just realized you'd answered my question last time too, somehow I never saw it. Sorry about that. That program works great, love how easy it is to make a collage.

No problem Rina! I know isn't it AWESOME?!

You read some wonderful books for March! I have one to recommend to you: Love to Water My Soul. I'll be posting the review this week.
Thanks for the tips on the cover collage... I bet I use it in the future. :-)
Have a lovely Easter week and happy reading.
