The Month That Was... March 2014

So my blog passed its three year mark in March but it was otherwise a fairly slow month. It's definitely not a slump, just the natural slow down that can only be expected after a few years (or people get co-bloggers which is something I don't want to do, this is MY blog and I'm selfish ;)). I read eight books over the month and one was titchy.

Of course, April brings the infamous Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon, so I might just get caught up.

In other news, I booked a holiday! A week in Tunisia at the end of May, woohoo! I also watched season one of Orange is the New Black after reading the book. Pondering whether to blog about that or not. I'm looking forward to the new series which goes on NetFlix in June. I started watching Lost Girl and Grimm too... and next week Game of Thrones is back on telly! So yeah, this might all explain why I'm reading less.

Here's what made it onto the blog...

Reviews:




Read and awaiting review: The Kraken Wakes by John Wyndham + Wolf by Mo Hayder.

Blogged about:

I wrote a poem out of search terms for World Poetry Day and celebrated my blogoversary with a few words of advice. Christian Schoon also dropped by to tell us all about the starships in his Zenn Scarlett series.

Lots of new books:

  1. Lots of new books for you this week! :D Bird Box looks so creepy:') have not read a good creepy book in a while.

    I got The Geography of You and Me on Netgalley. I have heard pretty good things. I am picking it up soon! :)

    Have a great week and enjoy all of your new books! :)

  2. Looks like a good reading month for you! One of these days I swear I'll actually read ORange is the New Black. LOVE that show. I also read the Jennifer E Smith book, which was cute. Not substantive, but it was a good palate cleanser in between heavier books for me. Like a cucumber-mint sorbet.

    1. I don't do spoilers in reviews. Mixed opinion really. Depends what you want out of the book.

  5. I'm really glad you said the thing about being three years old (um... your blog, not you. I assume you're at least 12!) and things slowing down a bit, because my blog turned 3 in January and I've done the least blogging ever this year and I've been feeling bad about it. But I feel better now, so thanks!

    p.s. YAY Orange is the New Black!! Did you love the series? You loved it right?
