Another month with not much reading completed! All three of this month’s reads were actually ones I was reading on a deadline — either the ARCs were expiring or I had a scheduled blog tour stop! So some stressful reading even if they were enjoyable. Template for this feature inspired by Jenna @ Falling Letters.
- The Valley and the Flood by Rebecca Mahoney
- The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner
- What Big Teeth by Rose Szabo
- Chlorine Sky by Mahogany L. Browne
- Tales from the Hinterland by Melissa Albert
- The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde
- The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner (book tour)
- Considered some bookish jobs with a Top Ten Tuesday prompt
- More current read updates with WWW Wednesday
- Interviewed From Ash and Dust for Music Monday, and shared his new single and album!
- Shared our Pie Day celebrations and some of your favourite flavours
- Took part in a new-to-me meme to compare last year’s read with this year’s
- Checked in with some life updates from the past couple weeks
- 0/13 books read from my 2021 Chosen TBR
- 0/4 read from my 2020 Chosen TBR
- 0/5+ read from books I own
- 6/10+ read from my TBR
- 233/150 books on my Goodreads TBR
In the book community:
- Kit @ Metaphors and Moonlight talked about TTS (text to speech) accessibility in books, an alternative when audiobooks aren’t available, and shared lots of details about the format I was unaware of
- Shruti @ This is Lit wrote an in-depth post about the harmful history of fatphobia in kidlit and her hopes for representation in the future
- Sumedha @ The Wordy Habitat offered a bunch of suggestions on how to format book review posts and types of information to include
Upcoming in April:
- Many more book reviews
- Birthday and blogiversary celebrations (this blog is almost 5 years old!)
- Perhaps some bookstore explorations
Obviously lots of work needed on those challenges, and perhaps I’ll take on some spring cleaning to tackle my Goodreads TBR and get that feeling more in control. Hoping that this month brings more reading my way, and I’m so happy to have taken care of most of my digital ARCs so I can get back to physical reads!
