Authors I'm dying to Meet...



Bear with me...

Hi, everyone! I know I haven't been posting as regularly as I used to. Back in the beginning of March in my TBR post, I told y'all I was going to be pretty busy at work. I'm starting to get into the groove of things and hopefully I'll be posting more frequently in the near future.

The main reason for this post is to talk about my new theme. I logged onto Blogger tonight and noticed new, beautiful, modern themes! Of course, me being me I was impulsive and changed to a new theme without a second thought. (Don't worry, I backed up my blog!) I absolutely love my new theme but all of my old posts have my old font, colors and all that jazz. Oh, and I can't seem to sync my Disqus to my new theme. 😔Please bear with me while I sort everything out! Hopefully, I'll get it all sorted out in April and be ready to rock soon afterward.

I'm super excited about my new theme and to be posting again! How's your Spring going so far?

March's Monthly TBR

My goal last month was to read a whopping eight books. I ended up reading 3 and a half. I worked a lot more hours than I had anticipated at my job and things have been hectic lately. For the month of March I'm going to add most of the books I didn't get to in February and that's pretty much it besides a short story. On Monday I'll be taking on a new department at work and for the next two to three months my attention will be focused on getting that together. Hopefully, everything pans out and my expected timeline works out. 
Well, without further ado here's my TBR for the month of March...

No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now, the idyllic kingdom has been immune to his many violent conquests. To keep the visit friendly, Princess Amrita has offered herself as his bride, sacrificing everything—family, her childhood love, and her freedom—to save her people. But her offer isn't enough. The unthinkable happens, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, who was kept by Sikander as a slave and managed to escape amid the chaos of a palace under siege.
