February/March Wrap-Up and April TBR

Hello!

Today I am here with a double wrap-up for February and March. February was a very bad month for me, not in terms of books read – I escaped into books more than usual – but I was very deep in lockdown blues and had no motivation to write reviews, or do much of anything and at the time I didn’t want to wrap-up what had felt like a dismal month. March has been much better, especially since I got confirmation of when I will be back at work (19 days and counting… yes I am keen to go back to work), and that has brought renewed motivation and a feeling that things are finally moving in the right direction.

Outside of books, D&D continues to be the highlight of my weeks (albeit stressful at times) and I am slowly getting back into the saddle with DMing too – something my squishy party might be regretting as they got blown up at the end of last session (they forgot to check for traps). While renewed motivation is helping on the writing front as well as I stalled quite a lot in February with the general feeling of meh that was prevailing at the time. I’m also trying to set myself the goal of talking about my book at least once a week somewhere on the blog or twitter, because I am terrible at self-promo (and it is the part I am dreading the most of releasing it into the world) so I figure I should try and build it up, so we will see how that goes.

Wrap-up

Looking Ahead:

(not comprehensive)

On the upside, with all the reading I’ve been doing I’m now down to the last four badges with the Spells & Spaceships SFF Badge Collection and I am hoping to get to the last ones in April with the following books.

  • The First Contact Badge – Shards of Earth by Adrian Tchaikovsky
  • The African Inspiration Badge – Son of the Storm by Suyi Davies Okungbowa
  • The Big Screen Badge – The Witcher by Andrzej Sapkowski.
  • The Collector 2021 Badge


April 1st also marks the start of the Witcher readalong organised by Alex across at Spells & Spaceships which I’m really looking forward to, as it’s both my first readalong, and I’ve had the books on my shelf for far too long!
