March Wrap-Up

Well, this will go down in the books as the weirdest March ever, I’m sure. I was never really a fan of dystopian novels and now that it feels as if we’re actually stuck in one, even less so.

As a part-time hermit, nothing much has changed for me. Except that the other half is home a lot more and that really cramps my style ๐Ÿ˜‚. But at least I don’t have to socialise, so there’s that.

Reading-wise, I may have mentioned it before and it looks as if a lot of you are on the same boat, but it’s just not happening.


Nine books. In an entire month. I don’t even recognise myself anymore.


Two, and not making much progress with either one of those. I’m going to have to add a third one too because I have blog tours coming up this month.


What can I say? It’s a hobby. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ


With thanks to Avon, Orenda Books, Headline and Titan Books.


This is what happens when I don’t read ๐Ÿ˜‚

That’s it for March. I predict April will be much of the same. The lockdown measures our government has taken have been extended to April 19th and I expect they will be extended again when that time comes. We are supposed to go to a family lunch thing near the end of the month, with about 40 people, half of which I don’t even like, so to be quite honest I’ll be a happy bunny if that doesn’t go ahead. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Stay safe, stay home, keep laughing if you can and take excellent care of yourselves! โค๏ธ

In the meantime, I shall leave you with this :

Team McSteamy ๐Ÿฅฐ

Until next time! xx

    For someone who isnโ€™t reading as much you are doing an excellent job of not running out of reading material ๐Ÿ˜‚ xx

      Should that have come with a warning? ๐Ÿ˜‚

      I know, right?! I keep seeing this meme pop up saying how reading and buying books are two different hobbies and I guess that’s true in my case ๐Ÿคฃ

      I have not watched Ozarks, no. No new episodes of Virgin River and I suspect there won’t be a for quite a while, with all that’s going on.
