Wow, March is really over? I have passed through the majority of this month in a total daze! My brain seems to think that WFH means “slacking off as much as possible” 😅, especially towards the end of the month. But I also blame that laziness and inability to focus on the purchase of a Switch Lite and Animal Crossing New Horizons… *cough* It was one of the best non-bookish decisions I’ve made in a while and I ain’t mad about it but also, *welp*, real life is just so miserable compared to setting up on a deserted island and building my own community with fun fluffy neighbours?!
But I digress (that’s also happening more these days)! I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s going to say that I’m feeling weary AF with all this negative energy and news… Living with my nan also does not help. You’d think that spending all my time at home being surrounded by books means that I’ve been making progress in cutting my TBR down. That’s unfortunately not the case when you’re a mood reader like me 😔 Still, I managed to read 15 books though the majority were read before mid-March!

I don’t even know what to say about March that I haven’t already said in countless posts this month. My reading momentum at the start of the month was great — especially since I was running off the “blog tour read energy” I had going from the previous month. I started to slow down once the blog tours for the month finished and that obviously became worse with the whole pandemic and purchase of my new console! Peoples, this pandemic has not only sucked away my physical energy but my mental energy too. I’ve been so exhausted this month despite doing almost nothing. Maybe I need to start getting physical at home by running around the house a few times? 😂
My favourite read from this month was Words in Deep Blue. It got me so hard in the feels but really made my appreciation and love for the power of words come to life. It’s such a beautifully written story and the author also writes a very realistic portrayal of grief and the process of “overcoming” it. I would highly recommend it!
I’m really hoping the pull to read comes back to me soon because otherwise I’m gonna be mad screwed for my April blog tours and eARCs! 🙃 We’re going to remain optimistic though!

I hope that everyone has had a good reading month despite the craziness that’s unfolding worldwide. I hope you’re also all staying safe and healthy wherever you are! Here’s to a better month ahead 🙂
