Month In Review

We made it through March!  It's a tough month, where you can see Spring in the distance but the cold weather and snow is still trying to stick around.  Thankfully, it looks now like we can put winter behind us!

I fell into a bit of a reading slump during this month but thankfully I was able to finish with a bang and I feel very content with the reading I did in March.  I'm hoping to keep up this run, as there are so many fantastic books I want to read this month.

This month there are a lot of great books coming out that I'm looking forward to reading.  I'm very excited for Sophie Kinsella's new book Wedding Night.  I will also be reading Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 as it was picked for the Toronto Public Library's One Book for the Keep Toronto Reading Festival.


  1. Great month, woot woot! I've got Eighty Days on tap next and I'm hoping I like it :)

    1. Thanks, I really hope this month is the same! I hope you enjoy Eighty Days, there's a lot to read, but it's a pretty cool book.
