I went to a garden centre that I hadn’t been to before at the weekend, it’s only like a minute up from the one we usually go to but it’s more for shrubs and trees. I wanted a laurel to replace the grub infested cape fuchsia we pulled down last year, so thought we’d try that one. They had such a good stock of trees and really was not expensive. It’s amazing how small ours lives have become that a new garden centre is such an exciting thing to visit!

Don’t forget I have an international giveaway running to win Β£30 worth of books andΒ I reviewed You Should See Me in a Crown which I recommend if you want a fun and easy read right now.

So I didn’t read much at all this week. I finished Hummingbird Salamander by Jeff VanderMeer for review, and was a bit disappointed in it overall. I will mull over what was missing and write a review soon, promise.

I have been enjoying listening to Future Perfect by Felicia Yap though, and should finish that tomorrow. Which will bring me back to the dilemma of what audiobook to listen to next! I have loads of Audible credits to use up before the annual renewal comes round once more.

Bex is hosting a bookshop crawl readathon from 2nd to 5th April. Go check out her intro video with her TBR and follow updates on Twitter with the #LondonBookshopCrawl hashtag. I want to get some stuff done in the garden over the bank holiday weekend so I probably won’t read all four books on my mini-TBR. I have a lot more unread books from bookshop crawls than this meagre pile, but I’ve not got a great attention span right now, so I’m not going to be ambitious.
