March was a strange month – so much so that I don’t really even know where to begin.
With the UK and many other places in lockdown, things seem indescribably odd at the moment. My job is one that allows me to work from home, and yet I’ve found myself struggling with routine for no reason that I can put my finger on. I have found that a daily walk helps massively with maintaining some peace of mind, and I’m lucky enough to live in the countryside, and so I can get away from it all and lose myself in nature for a little while each day without having to travel any distance at all.
I also found that my blogging mojo abandoned me completely at the end of the month, hence the unexpected break. I’m am getting back into the swing of things now, and highly recommend taking a break if you feel the same – if there’s ever a time to take care of yourself, it’s now.
Anyway, I hope that you’re all ok and that you’re doing whatever you need to take care of yourselves, mentally as well as physically.
Despite my impromptu break, I managed to post nine reviews in March, and the standout reads amongst these were:
My other reviews included:
- Throne of Jade by Naomi Novik
- Three Perfect Liars by Heidi Perks
- Code Name: Lise by Larry Loftis
- Parker Pyne Investigates by Agatha Christie
- The Deep by Alma Katsu
- The Murder Game by Rachel Abbott
I also posted a set of mini-reviews, covering Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara, and The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie.
I appear to have resorted to comfort-buying books during the last month, and my TBR hasn’t really reduced despite me reading slightly more than usual. I can at least argue that I was supporting indie retailers by making use of Hive as well as ordering directly from independent bookshops and indie publishers. I’m such an angel… 😇
