March 2018 Recap


First let me just wish everyone a very Happy Easter!


I know not everyone celebrates, to be honest we don't really either LOL, but in my family any excuse to eat chocolate is a party we can get on board with. Today is a double celebration in my house really because it's also my birthday. I'm always an April fool but it's not often that my birthday hits Easter too! I have to wish Sammee from I Want to Read That a huge happy birthday too since she's my birthday twin :o)

Anyway, I hope everyone is enjoying the Easter holiday and getting to do something fun over the long weekend!

March Events:


A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to the Andersen YA Book Brunch where we got to meet two of their fab authors, Emily Thomas and Julia Gray, and find out about all the exciting new releases they have coming out over the next few months. We were given a fabulous goodie bag and the chance to pick books from the stacks at the back of the room so of course I came home with some exciting new additions to my to read mountain. I've already read Crossover by Kwame Alexander, a boo that is totally different to my normal reads but one that I really loved, so watch out for that and more reviews coming soon.
