March Check-In

We're a quarter of the way through the year now and I can hardly believe it. The next time I do one of these, it'll be finals week.

I was hoping to beat out last month's record but I didn't quite make it. Though, there's still today left. I did start a new WIP, Siren, but I'm considering scrapping it because I'm not feeling the voices. I have two male main characters and they both sound the same to me. I do think the concept is worth saving for later.

Read: 6
This is a new record for me this year, bringing my total up to 13. At this rate I'll only make it to 52 books for the year so I'm going to have to step up my game. This month included Seraphina by Rachel Hartman, Miguel Street by V.S. Naipaul, Waiting for Snow in Havana by Carlos Eire, and The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.

Watched: 1
I didn't quite realize how horrible I was doing with this until now. I watched John Carter while it was on TV one day and it's quite strange but not as horrible as it's reputation suggested. I've been watching more movies than this, but all ones that I've already seen.

Things I've Never Done: 
I couldn't think of anything new for this month, and then I remembered last week I learned how to give rats injections which is definitely not something I've ever done before.
