March really came and went like it was nothing. I found it to be quite the busy month, so I didn’t read as much as in previous months. I’m still doing alright though, I believe, seen as I finished the Lovelight series up to the latest installment.
- In the Weeds by B.K. Borison (4.25 stars)

As per usual, click on the covers to get re-directed to Goodreads, where you are always welcome to add me as a reading buddy! OR find me on StoryGraph, which I adore more and more as an alternative. My own reviews you’re able to find by clicking on the titles in the list above, if there are posts for them.
My page count buffer, the one I so happily talked about last month, is gone in its entirety and then some. I’m still ahead or on track with the number of books I’ve read, I’m just massively behind in terms of pages. We are talking about something in the hundreds here …
I have been VERY consistent with my reading in March though, because The StoryGraph did me a solid and introduced the streak feature. You have to actively enable it on your profile, but it allows you to set a goal of how much you want to read per day and then help create a regular reading habit. I’ve read at least 3-4 pages every. single. day. in the past month and now have the stat sheet to prove it.
I’m not sure I have all that much to tell you about life in general. I’m trying to use my leisure time for all the things that bring me joy without exhausting myself. It’s a delicate balance, but I’m trying to make plans and get out there – the sunnier weather sure helped! But what else is new …
I Got a New Phone
For others, this might seem like a not-so-special occasion, but I’ve had my previous phone for more than 7 years and it was still working fine! The only problem was that I couldn’t really take high quality pics with it or update certain apps, because the model was just too outdated. So, I sprung for a new phone and now use my old one as a music player still. Because, 1) transferring all my music would take up so much storage and 2) I like to listen with headphones that have cables and new phones don’t have no way to use an aux cable anymore???
Daisy Jones & The Six
I’m not joking when I say that this show dominated my month! I was listening to the album up and down for weeks and still have most of the songs stuck in my head. If I could have the cast go on tour as the band, you would 100% find me there and I’m not even usually a person that goes to concerts (except for a few select artists).
The book was always my least favorite TJR book and I’ve made no secret of that, but it really came alive for me getting to hear and experience the music. I don’t have the imagination to “hear” the songs when they are just described to me in a book and this helped me, personally, so much.
Also, look at me channeling my inner Camila!
Writing Sprints with Marie
Marie has been one of my closest friends for the longest of times and I’m so very proud of her constant endeavors and her passion for writing. She’s so consistent and I really admire that beyond anything, because I have been FAILING in the writing department myself. But, she was gracious enough to do some writing sprints with me in March and it has been such a great motivator!
I have no idea if you’ve been here long enough to remember BUB, but it was my first NaNoWriMo novel and I even finished it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s totally terrible and needs so much work, which is why I’m back to editing/completely rewriting it. Clearly, I can’t stick to one project at a time, so I’m just switching between them however I like …
