April Updates

Wow, and here we are more or less at the end of another month…well, there’s still a few days to the month, but there’s a reason why this post is going live early. I guess what really struck me this month was how Easter has already come and gone; seems like yesterday it was the start of Lent. Well, the weather is slowly but finally getting nicer outside, which is a plus.

  1. Books reviewed this month include: Kate Clanchy’s Selected Poems (review), Federico Garcia Lorca’s In Search of Duende (review), and a re-read of Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach (review). You can check out all the books I’ve reviewed recently in the book review tag.
  2. No ARCs were reviewed this month! You can check out all of the ARCs I’ve read and reviewed to date in this tag.
  3. For this month’s So You Want to Read…, I focused once again focused on Poetry as part of National Poetry Month. You can check out that post over here. For all my previous recommendations under this feature, check out this tag.
  4. On a final note, you may have seen this post go live on your feed earlier today but I am going on hiatus as of today, April 25th until May 8th. I’m actually hopping on a plane later this evening and will be on vacation during that time. So no new posts until May 9th. In the meantime, you can follow me on Instagram as I will occasionally post photos as to what I’m up to across the Atlantic 😛

And that’s about it from me and the blog for the month of April! Wishing you all a wonderful May, and be good while I’m away 😛

Happy spring! Well, the weather’s been up and down over here but at least we’re slowly moving towards warmer weather…Anyhow, it’s been another one of those busy months for me both on and offline (moreso offline); I’m still working out some kind of schedule in which I get back to comments in due time. In the meantime, here’s what has been going on at the blog:

February Updates

Goodness, it’s already the end of February and two months into 2017? Seems like yesterday I was just getting ready to celebrate another blogoversary! Anyway, I hope everyone had a lovely February; mine was fairly busy, a shock considering I was thinking it was going to be a quiet one, but anyhow, here’s what has been going on at my blog in the meantime:

+++

  1. Books reviewed this month include: Vivienne Lorret’s When a Marquess Loves a Woman (review), J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun (review), and Elena Ferrante’s Troubling Love (review). You can check out all the books I’ve reviewed recently in the book review tag.

  3.

  4. And finally, I celebrated my tenth blogoversary earlier this month (see post). I can’t believe it’s been ten years since I first started steadily book blogging. Thanks again to everyone who commented and celebrated with me, and congratulations again to Wattle in winning my wee book giveaway! I hope you enjoy the title you selected 🙂
