As you probably noticed, I really only posted book reviews this month, and not too much else. I have come to the conclusion that time management will just not be my forte for a LONG time...because even though Tater Tot is getting into more of a routine (helpful!), he is getting busy busy busy. Which is a lot of fun, but you know, busy. And Small Fry continues to happily run circles around me (even managed to dislocate an elbow this month...oh THAT was fun! Slow down, child!!).
|Holding up his arm in triumph after the doc popped his elbow back into place. Trust me, there had not been smiles for MANY HOURS before this! Oy.|
So my plan for now is to mostly focus on book reviews. I AM still reading, and I love to share my reviews (that's the reason I got into this in the first place, right??). So at a minimum, I will keep up with that. When I can do more, I will. I have a long-term goal of *hopefully* participating in the fall Bloggiesta in September, and perhaps I can make that my turning point. :)
Anyway, to recap: In March I read/reviewed 5 books:
Above by Isla Morley
Sous Chef by Michael Gibney
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
Two Sisters by Mary Hogan
Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
And, I talked about my brief bookstore side-trip to Strand in NYC (heaven!).
Last month, I focused way-heavy on ARCs...how did I end up with so many after saying I was taking a break from them?? Part of this is because, as you may remember, my next TBR book baggie pick was Gone With the Wind, and truth be told...I am intimidated. So many pages! So much hype! My challenge for April is to at least start it. I CAN DO EEEET!
Oh, and in other news, I am leaving for sunny Florida for a few days, as my stepbrother is getting married this weekend. WOOHOO!! Looking forward to our first plane trip with the boys. Very excited to celebrate with family...and experience weather above 50 degrees!! Probably not much reading to be done on this trip, but who knows...maybe traveling will tire out my two little buggers? Extra nap time? :)
How was your March, reader friends?
