Phewf! What a month. I know that all of us seem to feel the months flying by but I honestly couldn’t tell you what happened to March. I’ve barely read a thing and I’ve barely had time to spare a thought for the blogging that I’ve not been doing. I left my previous job because I wanted more challenging work and wow have I got it. I’m unbelievably busy and I love how much I’m learning and the experiences I’m getting. But that doesn’t mean that I’m not missing reading and talking about reading, because I am. During one particularly cranky evening, I even contemplated just throwing it all in and resigning myself to the loss of my little space on the internet. And then I got an email about the upcoming, wonderful releases from Gollancz and realised that I was being ridiculous. So here we are! Still quiet for the foreseeable future I expect but still here.
I can sum up my reading from this month in one sentiment: why am I still reading Tess of the D’Urbevilles?! I don’t hate it but it’s not exactly a relaxing read and my efforts to read something alongside it just resulted in me reading something else for a while. To be fair, it was Running Like A Girl and I loved it so it was tricky to put that aside for Hardy. I had planned on powering through the end of Tess over the weekend but I was out on Friday night and Saturday night and creating a vegetable patch in our back garden with Boyfriend on Sunday so that didn’t quite happen.
I almost don’t want to type the numbers…
Books read: 1 and a half…
Pages read: I’m not sure, to be honest – 240 pages of Running Like A Girl and maybe 200 of Tess?
Audiobooks listened to: 1 and 2 halves (of different books, hence not “2”)

And that’s about it for March. Hello, spring! May you contain many more books!
