March Month in Review // April Preview

March wasn't the greatest month in terms of reading. I've been going through a reading drought, so I haven't fallen in love with any of the books I've been reading the last three weeks or so. I even picked up a book I KNOW I love and re-read my favorite scenes and was all MEH. That's how you KNOW it's bad. ^^;; I might be out of the drought now, though, since I was able to fully embrace a Kasie West book this past week and be sad when it was over! *cheers*

Because of the drought, I'm pretty far behind on my reading for 
Fairy Tale Fortnight. I've always reviewed a book every single day in previous years. I don't know if I can do that this year, especially since three of my books were during my MEH drought. *sigh*

But even so, there's still SO MUCH to share with you. Wait until you see the authors we have lined up to drop by and the books we'll be featuring. I'm so excited about so many things!! I'm so glad it's finally April!
Fairy Tale Time!!!!

Are you ready for FTF? It will be held from April 20th to May 3rd this year!!!

Here's a peek at my toppling fairy tale list of DOOM:

TOTAL: 15 Books (and 2 shorts/novellas and 2 graphic novels)
{**A couple of these were skim-raed at times because I was in my slump and going through the motions of reading. Some of these books, I know I'd love if I wasn't in a slump because I ALMOST could. I won't tell you what was when, though! And not ALL of these are slump books! ^.~ }
