I feel like I’ve skipped March this year it’s been the strangest month. I’ve been so wrapped up in myself and university work lately that it’s kind of just flown past me but in terms of news the main news I can share with you is that I’m dating someone. I know it doesn’t seem long ago that I was blogging about my break-up but you know what? It just popped up out of the blew and I’ve taken a chance on this guy. We’ve been on a couple of dates and it’s all been very magical, but I can sit here and tell you that I’m happy. Even if it just ends up being a short-term thing I don’t mind, I’m living in the moment and having a great time with someone who enjoys my company too.
As you might have guessed from being wrapped up in my new romantic status I haven’t done much reading this month, but hear me out! I’ve also been swamped with my assignments for university. I have three assignments to do and I’m finished- it’s come round so quick! I’m itching to get them finished and throw myself into some new books I’ve obtained these past few months, I miss reading so much.
I did manage to squeeze in my classic of the month The Communist Manifesto and a book coming soon called The Doubt Factory which I’m going to be part of a blog tour for- so look out for that! I’m glad I could fit these books in because they’ve both given me a reason to find time for myself and not over-do-it with the university work. I can get quite uptight sometimes and forget that I can have a bit of me time and enjoy a good book instead of working my butt off constantly.
The Doubt Factory by Paolo Bacigalupi (blog tour coming soon!)
As a giant book nerd I love receiving new books and I’ve been spoilt this month.
I had a bit of a rough patch these past couple of months regarding my health and so I treated myself to the suitable choice of Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig– I’m SO excited to get round to reading this book next month, as I keep reading countless amazing reviews for it so the hype is up there right now!
Another book I’ve been kindly sent from Cara at HarperCollins is Unrivalled by Alyson Noel (I’ve left a linky link below!) and I’ll be reviewing this one fairly soon with a little surprise for you all so keep your eyes peeled for that!
Then lastly my Kindle has been ravished by Netgalley ebooks and I feel totally spoilt, it’s filled to the brim with my most anticipated books and I’m crying that I’m going to have to hold back for at least another month until I can indulge in them all (again a list is below for you to check out!).
Seeing as my plan for March kind of failed wonderfully, I’ve decided April can be a month of the unknown! I’m so bad with sticking to a plan but to some degree it’s nice not to have one and wait to see what the month unfolds in terms of reading and my social life.
If you couldn’t tell already I am buzzing to finish my first year with the Open University the end is nigh and I have piles of books to be read and I can’t wait to get stuck in. I have a four month break and I’m not going to waste it, a reading spree is happening and I pray I don’t crash into a massive reading slump- eeek! So let’s get these three darn assignments out of the way so I can crack on!
Anyhow this month has been a whirlwind and I’m excited to see what April brings, I have a date with this guy on Tuesday and I’m sick with nerves again but buzzing at the same time. The past couple of dates have been lovely and I’m just giddy from it all, I almost feel like a Disney princess being all girly and daft haha…
Well I wish you all a happy April and I’m excited to share all my upcoming posts with you very soon!
Hugs and love,
