March 2022 Wrap-Up
What a difference a month can make! If February left me feeling slightly gloomy and struggling with reading, March makes me full of hope and love for all things bookish. At the time of writing, I am sat with the windows wide open, the sun is shining and it is warm outside. My lovely husband and I enjoyed a day in London and went to see The Play that Went Wrong, which was an absolute hoot, made even funnier by the world's most giggly child sat behind us. We've also been doing plenty of gardening and have been enjoying a lot of coffee and cake on the terrace.
Book wise, I joined a Classics Book Group, Anna Karenina is progressing slowly but I am very much enjoying reading it with my friend and I got to celebrate the last in the series of the Shipyard Girls. A series which has been very close to mine and my family's heart
Books Read and Reviewed in March
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
- A Line to Kill by Anthony Horowitz
- A Rose Petal Summer by Katie Fforde
- Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
- Three Cheers for the Shipyard Girls by Nancy Revell
Year to date
13/50 books read so far this year. I am happy with this amount. Life has been mad.
Favourite Book of the Month
It has to be Three Cheers for the Shipyard Girls. A fitting end to a wonderful series.
5 Star Reads
2 this month, Wuthering Heights and Three Cheers for the Shipyard Girls. It was so great to read Wuthering Heights again and I was definitely swept back into the passion. Our reading group were split on it though.
Big Read Challenge
Who even am I, I've only managed to read 2 BBC Big Read Titles this month! 18/100 titles on BBC Big Read list read.

To Be Read
By my reckoning, I have:
- Books to be Read on Kindle - 3 Books
- Big Read Books - 11 Books
- Physical Books - 22 Books
Grand Total - 36 Books.
Some people have given up buying books for Lent. Madness!
Looking Forward To
We celebrate a lot of family birthdays in April which will be lovely, I'm also looking forward to a long weekend off my work at Easter. Over the years, I've really come to love Easter. I now have an Easter egg tree, Easter mugs and enjoy all the Easter food. My lovely husband despairs sometimes. Whatever you are doing I hope you have a great month and that March has been kind to you.
