This month in life and on the blog

If February was the month of stress then March was the month of illness πŸ™ Suffered a flare up of my UC -IBD and then after all the auto-immune suppressing meds kicked in I was rewarded with the flu so safe to say I was fed up BUT I did manage to fit in some fun stuff below! πŸ™‚

I celebrated Paddy’s Day for the first time in about 15 years! Soooo Patriotic…NOT! I got to go to my first Parade in Dublin which was sooo cool with my sister, brother in law and nephew and had a fab day watching all the floats and bands and after went to the carnival and convinced my sister to get up on the Ferris wheel! Can you see the fear in her eyes? πŸ˜‰

I also got to spend time with friends in Dublin and got to help with some Wedding planning (no photos tho, it’s a secret!) but got rewarded with some awesomely lady-like Afternoon Tea and a night in my favourite Persian restaurant Zaytoons! YUM!

The sun came out which meant BEACH! So nice to get down there for walks! Ella and Gracie loved it and apparently like to eat sea vegetables…*shakes head*. Of course BEACH also means BATH which didn’t go down too well…

I got to have a fab girl’s night and play hostess to my friends which meant a lot of this…

This month I got…


From Publishers

My first Rainbow Rowell and my first Cat Clarke!!

From Author

I’m really looking forward to both of these. I’ve heard FINDING JUNE is the type of NA I want to read i.e. none of the WTFery that drives me insane and HONOR AMONG ORCS sounds like a solid fantasy!

From Edelweiss


I love military stories and this one sounds amazing!

From NetGalley

18528412 16429619

A Romeo and Juliet retelling and a fab sounding fantasy! Sold!


Not a lot of new releases this month, mostly books that have been on my wishlist for AGES and finally went on sale! Let me know if your thoughts if you’ve read any of these! πŸ™‚

*apologies – no goodreads links for these, WordPress is being a douche this morning and I’d like to refrain from throwing my laptop out the window!!*Β

    I LOVE Second Chance Summer – Morgan Matson is definitely one of those authors on my auto-buy list! I bought If Only this week too – sounds like a pretty good NA!

    Sorry to hear you hadn’t been feeling well last month. πŸ™ That Afternoon Tea looks yum! πŸ™‚

  2. Renu

    Despite the illness and stress glad you managed to fit in some fun! Your niece is ADORABLE! I loved Grave Mercy and the Fire and Thorns trilogy was pretty good, too.

  3. Sofia

    Your dogs are so cute! πŸ™‚ They made me miss my own dog who has to live at my parents for various different reasons. I’m dying to read The Kiss of Deception! The Final Empire, The Girl of Fire and Thorns, and Fire & Blood are also on my TBR list. I’m hoping to get my hands on them soon. Happy reading and have a great weekend! πŸ™‚

    Ugh, sickness. Hope you’re feeling better! Your dogs are too cute. Mine hates to be washed too, but she LOVES when she’s brushed afterwards. And your niece is adorable. πŸ™‚

    Your week was eventful. :DD I am happy yo had so much fun. And don’t even let me star with your book haul. Few that I’m waiting for myself.

    I’m glad that you liked J. Lynn novels – I reviewed first book last week, but I was pretty much disappointed with it. Hype and all…:(

  11. Greg

    Looks like a great time in Dublin! Landline and Attachments both sound great, and Grave Mercy was good I thought. Have a great week.

    Great haul, you’ve got a lot of amazing looking books this month. I really want to read The KIss of Deception, that book looks really great. Also love the look of Cat Clarke’s new book, didn’t know she had a new one out. I hope you enjoy all of your books πŸ™‚ My STS.
