March Wrap Up 2017!

March 31. The last day of the month. I was supposed to have a class trip today but it sadly got postponed to the 4th of April 😦 I was looking forward to this trip for today but it had to get moved. But anyway, I think I had a pretty good month, not just referring to all the books that I had read. I made so many new friends (well, got closer to some of my friends) took at least 5 class trips and I got to go to one of my favorite places with them. I made some new internet friends (HEY BRENT!!!) But it’s the end of the month and here is my March Wrap Up!

*I just realize that when I wrote that, it seems like I have a bunch of energy and ate a lot of candy. I promise I didn’t. I might have had a Dr. Pepper but that is it. My body isn’t used to sugar.*

Current Obsessions:

Quantico –
Yes, I did include this show in last months but I am still addicted to it. Season 2 picked back up the other week and we have gotten two new episodes. I am mind blown. I think I yell at my TV a million times about why Caleb STILL hasn’t been in the show yet, and why Ryan is doing some of the stuff that he is doing. I have been hearing rumors that this might be the last season for the show but I am praying that it isn’t because this show is amazing and I don’t know what I am going to do because ALEX AND RYAN ARE BAE. So much stuff has been happening so far and I am so excited to see what happens next because I am addicted, still.

Capture

Sister vs. Girlfriend Videos –
I know this is a really old trend and I was really into them when they first started but for some reason, I have been obsessed with them. I think the other night I watched like three hours worth of them because I had nothing better to do with my life. My favorite has to go to Alfie Deyes with his girlfriend Zoe Sugg and his sister Poppy Deyes. This is the second one in this ‘series’ of his and I laughed my butt off during the video. And I don’t even really watch Alfie Deyes or YouTube in general anymore. You all should go and watch this video because you will enjoy it.

Overall, I would say that I had a good month. I read 8 books and watched two movies. There are probably a few other things that I have been obsessing over but my brain is just not turned on right now!

How was your guys’ month? What was your favorite book you read this month? What books did you read this month? One of your favorite memories from this month? Have you read any of these book before? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Happy Reading.
