Bookends: March 2021

You might have noticed that it’s halfway through April and I’m just now putting up the March Bookends post. I’m not sure what’s up with me lately, but I am very much stuck in neutral with writing, including blogging, journaling, and postal correspondence. I was trying to fight through it, but I think for this month, I’m just going to go with it and do a basic list of what I’ve read with links to the reviews on LibraryThing.

The photo at the top of this post is of our foster mice. One of them might be pregnant. We should know for sure within a few days. Apparently they don’t do ultrasounds or pee-on-a-stick tests with mice.

Now onto the books I read in March:

I forgot to add Southland in one of the “Free” spaces.

To-Read for April:

Being that it’s halfway through the month, I’ve already made some progress on this bingo card. Not as much as I probably ought to have made by now given how far behind on my son’s homeschool books I am, but progress nonetheless.

You can see my Litsy profile for status updates throughout the month and my Instagram (@ImperfectHappiness) for mostly not-book-related photos.

What’s on your TBR stack for April?
