I’m shocked at how quickly March went by, and at how many books I read this month. It certainly didn’t seem like a lot, but I read 15 books. I think it was the Harry Potter rereads that made it feel like I didn’t read much, since I went through those slower than usual.
As far as a book haul, I was bad this month. I hadn’t planned on buying any books, yet I did. Multiple times. But, I like my purchases so I don’t regret it. However, I think I should go into a book-buying ban for the next month or so. At least until after my birthday in May.

I’ve been watching Wizards of Waverly Place as my nostalgia show. Honestly, this was in the height of when Disney shows were good, just before it plummeted. It was one of the few shows I liked to keep up with in high school, as Alex Russo was relatable then and still is now. You know, minus the wizard part.
I get a lot of laughs from this show still, and it’s making me want to watch some of the older Disney shows I loved like Lizzie McGuire, That’s So Raven, Even Stevens, and more. Once I get through this show (and a couple of favorite episode replays) I’ll start on those other Disney gems.
Keeping with a wizard theme, I’ve been re-watching the Harry Potter films here and there this month. Some I’ve actually sat down and watched, but others I used as background noise while I was reading. In fact, I replayed a few after watching to use as background noise. It was fun to watch films 3 – 6 as I read those books this month as well, so it was fun to do the movie comparisons.
I would actually say though that it was reading and watching Harry Potter that got me into watching Wizards of Waverly Place, as it’s not doubt the show was inspired by the tales of The Boy Who Lived. I guess we could say I’ve had a magically mischievous month.
That’s all for my March Wrap Up. I have to say I pretty much enjoyed it all – the books, the shows, the movies. I’m looking forward to some books coming out in April, as well as Secrets of Dumbledore, and hopefully some warmer weather!
What did your March look like?
