And finally, a little life update:

This post is SO overdue, but March has just been kind of a doozy of a month so far! The end of February was so chill and productive for bookish stuff that I fully expected to get back on track, but apparently it was just a quick reprieve before the beginning of March. 😅 Anyways, most of February was still non-stop home renovation CHAOS, but we finished up most of that at the end of February and the last week of the month was very nice and quiet! Honestly, I don’t even remember most of last month because we were so busy and exhausted 24/7. 😂 I’d love to give a more exciting life update here, but… that’s what I’ve got! 🤷‍♀️

How was your month? What was your favorite book you read or hauled, or what was something nice that happened in your life?

    1. I can’t wait to see what the renovations will end up looking like at the end! Also, seriously, how do you keep up with all the review copies and staying on track? I feel like I’m drowning in old arcs that I haven’t requested anything new.

      1. Thank you lovely! Omg, I’m not on track AT ALL lately and it makes me so sad 😭 but I find that keeping a spreadsheet helps, and I request a lot fewer ARCs than I used to, which also lightens the load so much!

    1. You’ve had such a great month for hauling books! I absolutely loved When Sharks attack with Kindness and I’m glad you enjoy it! I hope for this month you can take some time to relax, unwind, and take a little bit of a break from the home renovations! 💜
