MARCH WRAP-UP: Another Hard Month, But Two New Favourite Books!

Hello, everyone! March has been a month of so many ups and downs I’m exhausted just thinking about it. My brain was very overwhelmed with everything that happened, so that I started falling behind on my reading, especially in the ARC department. I spent all of March feeling like I had to constantly play catch up, which made me want to read even less. Thanks, brain, very helpful! However, March also brought me two new favourite authors and books: Victoria Lee’s The Fever King, and Katherine Locke’s The Spy With the Red Balloon, which I both highly recommend.

I didn’t DNF anything this month, but I decided to create a new Goodreads shelf for books I’ve started but don’t have the brainspace to continue at the moment. I don’t know why that didn’t occur to me sooner, but it felt good to move my paused books from the Currently Reading to the Paused shelf, since I don’t want to DNF them. Overall, I read 9 books in March, which isn’t bad at all, but I hope I manage to read more in April!

Frida of the Month

Frida dog, a small brown dog with long fluffy fur, is curled up into a loaf, eyes mostly shut, with her tongue peeking out

I swear she does things other than snooze, but she’s just so cute when she’s snoozing! Look at that blep.
