I’ve written and rewritten this opening paragraph a few times in an attempt to make March sound like it was way more exciting than it really was. But no, it was just March, and just like every other month, I read as many books as I could. And just like this non-extraordinary month, this is just a normal, non-extraordinary recap of the books I read. But at least there’s double the books than last time, so that in itself makes this recap a little more enticing, at least for me.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

Author: Maya Angelou

Genre: Autobiography

Description: The first of several autobiographies, Maya Angelou shares the story of her childhood in I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

So quick announcement. Earlier this month I went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and had my love of Harry Potter aggressively reignited. As a result, I’m reading the Harry Potter series. Again. For the 3rd time. Because why the fuck not. Anyways. Because of this, my posts this coming month might be a little different. Maybe I’ll write a review about all the books? Maybe I’ll write about how Harry’s character progressively becomes more and more sassy with each book? I don’t fucking know yet. But I’m just warning you that this coming month I will be Harry Potter trash. It’s up to you if you want to find out what that means.
