February was a killer month. I’m wildly productive when I’m single; so I guess silver linings and all. I have been devouring books, writing loads, experimenting and having more fun with my Instagram, planning more exciting blog posts, and having some wild nights out in Berlin with beautiful people. I also read out a nonfic piece at the No Filter zine birthday party.
March is going to be an absolutely massive one, too. I’ve got so many exciting things going on – the launch of my book club, seeing my friend play at Griessmuehle, my London friends visiting, and then… Australia! So much packed into one month, but I’m also aiming to keep up my reading roll, write bucket loads (that 24 hr plane trip should help), and devise some fun Aussie posts for the blog.
March TBR List
February was a BIG reading month (here’s my February book wrap up, by the way). I’m hoping March is just as big. Here’s what’s on my list for the month:
- Throne of Glass, Sarah J. Maas
- Sapiens, Yuval Noah Harari
- The Goose Girl, Shannon Hale (reread)
- The Gap of Time, Jeanette Winterson
- Shadow and Bone, Leigh Bardugo
As I mentioned, I managed to write buckets of my current novel, Brew Books, in February. It was just one of those things where I got to a really good, juicy part, and I just wanted to keep writing. Hopefully I can keep up the momentum in March. Oh, by the way, if you want to read Brew Books (as I’m writing it – so literally as a first draft), you can read my latest novel on Wattpad.
I also want to get out of my current medium a bit more this month and delve back short story writing. After editing a friend’s short story submission, I realised how fun a neat few thousand words of prose can be.
As well as reading and writing loads, I’ve gotten into the momentum of writing book reviews for the books I read. I find it so helpful because to be honest, I read loooads and sometimes I look back on books I’ve read a few years ago and can’t really remember what I thought about it. I probably won’t write book reviews about every.single.book but if I feel strongly about it (in a good or a bad way) I’ll write about it.
This is hardly a goal but I’m going to Australia at the end of this month for the first time in three years! I can’t wait to see old friends and catch up with everyone.
