March Wrap Up 2017

Goodbye March. As always I’m convinced we’ve skipped a few days or something cause there is no way I believe April has come by so quickly.

Good news. I have a new laptop. Yes, after 7 weeks of desperately trying to save my old one, at the end it decided it wanted to stay broken. It feels weird typing on a keyboard again.

Moving on, March was a solid reading month for me. I finished A Conjuring of Light on the first of the month and that book put me in such a deep book coma I’m surprised I even had it in me to pick up another book. The Shades of Magic series has officially sealed it’s spot at an all time favourite. However, the two other books I read in March were enjoyable as well. Breath of Fire had that same addictive quality to it and Wanderlost has me itching to hop on a flight somewhere.

Top Ten Tuesday: Must Meet Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Not so long ago I wrote a post on my dream book conference panel. We all have authors we’d love to meet in person. Unfortunately for me, most authors that do a UK book tour tend to stick to the major cities, meaning that I’d have to commute at least 2/3 hours to the closest destination. One of these days I will go to a bookish event, so with that in mind here are the authors I’d love to meet.
