Month in review: March 2020

So…March was…strange (as I’m sure you can all relate to). My husband and I are now on day 20 of quarantine, and I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I worry about things like finding a new job and being able to go to my friend’s wedding this summer. I also miss hanging out with friends and going to my favorite community spots, and I feel general anxiety over the state of the world. But in the grand scheme of things, I am only moderately inconvenienced by the quarantine, and (although I feel spoiled saying this) some positive things have come out of the extended time off – like realizing that it actually isn’t too complicated to work remotely, and having more time than usual for yoga and reading.

Books read:

Books in progress/April reading goals:

I’m currently reading Actress by Anne Enright. So far, I am loving the author’s writing style; the plot has not compelled me as much as the writing, but I’m not very far into the book so things can still change. I also plan to read Red at the Bone, The Most Fun We Ever Had, and A Thousand Ships this month.

Posts that stuck with me:

I also want to shout out the bloggers who are reading through the Women’s Prize for Fiction longlist! It has been wonderful to read their takes on the novels, and to feel a sense of bookish community. You can find some great WP longlist coverage on Rachel, Callum, Gilana, Naty, Hannah, and Corey‘s blogs.

  1. Thanks for the shoutout! March was really crazy, but I’m glad you’re doing well by spending time on your hobbies and working from home. (I saw a meme going around at the start of the lockdown about how all those meetings really could have been e-mails and I couldn’t agree more. I mean, I’d still rather have meetings than the virus, but I hope things’ll change on that front if we do go back to work…) Also, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before but your cats are adorable! 😆 I have a cat myself, mostly white with grayish-black spots. He also loves boxes. As usual I look forward to your reviews and hope you have a great reading month in April. 🙂

    1. Thank you! That is SO TRUE about all those meetings that could have been emails haha. In general, I think (or hope) that a lot of things can change after the virus is managed. And aw thank you, being a cat mom is such a joy haha. Hope you have a great reading month in April too!
