Read and TBR for March and April

Well hello April. I can tell you how mine started… with a rubber snake under my pillow! And three snickering little boys after I screamed. 🙈 Sigh. I’m still planning my retribution…

Well March was a busy month! I restarted teaching and, because I clearly don’t have enough to do, I also started an online course. The course has been super interesting, at least, and teaching has been going well. I’m noticing though that students seemed to have handled last semester being online a bit better. This semester, they’ve got the tech down better but there’s definitely an added layer of fatigue that wasn’t as pronounced last time around. I suspect it’s because there was an expectation of being back in the classroom to some extent.

In terms of reading, I got another 9 books in this month. Yay! I also got a little two-seater to add to my ‘reading area’. Now I just have to figure out how to set up the area! Lol. Maybe then I can get back to reading my physical books.

Here’s what I read in March.

Read and TBR

The Cozy Mysteries were Freaky Seas, The Witch is Back, Weddings and Whodunits, Only the Strong and Murder at the Races (which is also a historical fiction). The romance stories were The Secret One and Noah. There were two Contemporary novels (family drama/ romance) in Family Secrets at Hedgehog Hollow and It Had to be You.

A whopping seven of these books came via my Kindle Unlimited subscription. I definitely got good use out of that investment this month! Sadly none of these books came from my Kindle backlog or my physical bookshelf. But two of them were from my NetGalley collection!

Keeping it light and sweet through April. I’m keeping up with some favourite cozy series, checking out a couple much adored romance stories and signed-up for blog tour. I should easily be able to get through this lot!

The Cornish Midwife by Jo Bartlett

A Hex For Danger by Esme Addison

Sparks and Landmarks by Trixie Silvertale

Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Freaky Mage by Amanda. M. Lee

An Offer From a Gentleman by Julia M. Quinn

What about you? What are you looking forward to reading this month? Feel free to share links to your April reading lists in the comments.

  1. A good selection! I want to do a post on my reading. I just finished reading THE HIDING PLACE by Paula Munier, a third book in the series, all are extremely good. Another was KNITTY, GRITTY MURDER by Peggy Ehrhart. I did enjoy it but was disappointed with minor comments on cooking, eating, and knitting.
    I am reading a trilogy by Susan Wittig Albert, about a reporter from her China Baylis series. I hope the schools can go back to the schools. Stay Safe!


  2. Happy Easter to you too, Nina. Great to hear you’re back teaching although can completely understand the student fatigue. Looking forward to hearing your verdict on Family Secrets at Hedgehog Hollow. Great to see you’re going to be reading Jo Bartlett’s The Cornish Midwife. She’s just joined the same publisher as me and is one of my writing besties so excited to see how she does. Have a fabulous April x

  3. HA–a snake under the pillow–definitely sounds like three little boys. how you do it all, i can’t imagine. glad teaching is back–i’m trying to decide if the students are happy or not about that. i’d assume most are happy to be back in a classroom with a teacher that is present.

    1. It’s a trip. Lol. They are with their grandparents for a week so that’s a lovely break.
      Well looks like another full semester at home. Fingers crossed for September to go back out.
