We certainly aren’t clear of snow forecasts (have one for tonight). Spring doesn’t happen here as early as the southern states and it’s still plenty cold. March is usually a celebration, however, in that it is Reading Ireland Month, Women’s History Month, and my birthday. A huge surprise in store for me this year when our son and Croatian son joined forces to get me a new cell phone. OMG!! I haven’t had time to play with it yet, but already so jazzed with the amazing colors, photos, and speed. Maybe it’ll read my books for me now!
The CE and I read nine books for #readingirelandmonth21 and I read two for #womenshistorymonth.
We posted seventeen book reviews for March, which included ARCs from NetGalley as well as author requests and my audiobooks from our local library.
The Shortest Day (shortest book – #begorrathon21 *)
The Cotillion Brigade (longest book)
I hit 97,000 views in the month of March, still working toward my goal of 3,000 followers with a ways to go. My schedule has become overwhelming, however, and I’m thinking of taking a breather by exclusively posting reviews from the CE in a concentrated effort to clear the backlog of his reads.
March and April filled up fast and I’ll be laying out a new plan shortly to post reviews. (The CE reads faster than I for sure!) Despite my backlog of his books, I’m still running at 94% on NetGalley and well ahead of my 175 book goal on Goodreads.
Four books for the Audiobook challenge, bringing the total to 12 for a goal of between 20-30—Binge Listener.
Historical Fiction – Four books in March and two considered for Women’s Historical Month.
NetGalley – Nine additional books in March bringing my total to 27 in a goal of 75.

Please let me know if you’ve read one of the above listed books or put them on your TBR and I’m always open to title suggestions.
Apologies to my readers for the awkward format of this post. WP is having fun with me again and has refused my access to the “classic” word editor (again!) I don’t do “blocks” well.
As always, welcome to my new followers—and those who continue to support the blog through your participation, likes, and comments. You help me grow and keep me going. Thank you!
