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.

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.

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.

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

Time for another laptop update. Well, it’s fixed but it’s on its final breath so now I have to get myself a new laptop. Technology well and truly hates me.

I’m still recovering from A Conjuring of Light so I’ve yet to pick up another book. I have plenty of books I plan on reading so hopefully I can get out of this book coma soon. Here are the 10 books that are on my Spring to be read list.
