A Farewell to March

Hey there, folks! How ya doing? Having a good day? Loving the weather where you are? I guess I should use this time more wisely and wrap-up March. Because not enough has gone on in April, so far, to talk about yet.

Ah, March. Where the last vestiges of winter go to die (at least in Georgia) and spring attacks with a smattering of pollen. My reading started off like a high-speed grand prix and ended with a soft pfft. I read four novels and the latest issue of Saga. The real win was that I loved all of them. Quality over quantity and all that.

Books read:

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Three Souls by Janie Chang
Saga, Volume 3 by Brian K. Vaughn

I spent most of my time watching, talking, or writing about The Walking Dead. I’m sure you’re shocked. April has been spent coming down off the TWD high and returning to normal life. What else happened? Let’s see…a whole lot of nothing. We did our taxes. Ate at some good restaurants. And spent a lot of time working. We attended the auto show. Be jealous.

With all that nothing going on, Jimmy and I were able to spend far less money than usual. We’re paying off my car in May (FINALLY) and another small debt as well. A major win for adulthood. Okay, I’m gonna quit putting y’all to sleep and sign off.

Happy Apriling, dearies!

    • I really enjoyed (will have a full review tomorrow) but it suffered a bit under the weight of having a lot of historical events and issues to discuss. Still a solid 4 star read.

  1. How did you find Burial Rites & Half of a Yellow Sun? – I want to read Burial Rites especially as it’s one of the short-listed for the Bailey’s prize.

  2. Congrats on your adulthood debt payoff! That’s such a satisfying feeling. I just finished paying off my student loans last month. It took 10 years and we still have my husband’s, but it felt so saisfying!

    • Congrats on no more student loans!! I have about 5/6 years left on mine since I didn’t start paying until I was 25 and took some deferments went I went through some grad courses. ONE DAY.

    • I haven’t read everything that Adichie’s written. I know most people really love Half of a Yellow Sun, but I personally preferred Americanah. I’d say read the synopsis and go with your gut.
