March 2021 in Review

Updated: Jul 14, 2021

Month 2 in my UNO reading challenge, and I ended up reading a lot for it. On top of all the books I read for the challenge, I also picked up a lot of graphic novels, manga, and short a lot of them.

Here are all the statistics for the month!


I read a total of 14 physical books, 6 audiobooks, 19 graphic novels, 36 manga, 2 webcomics and 26 short stories for a total of 103 books and roughly 15,160 pages.

I ended up DNFing 6 books this month Here are all the books I DNFed this month and why:

  • The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty - couldn't get into it

  • The Graveyard Book Vol.1 by Neil Gaiman - was boring

  • Kindred Graphic Novel by Octavia E. Butler - was hard to read

  • The Removed by Brandon Hobson - didn't like the subject matter

  • The Project by Courtney Summers - cults aren't for me

  • Trace Vol.1 by Nasty Cat - bad translation and art

Here are all the books I read this month. If you want to check out my reviews, click on the pink links!
