Hey there, book cult!
I hope March has been good to you. For me, it’s been a bit of both. I got pulled under a dark storm-cloud of anxiety, stress, and depression for a little while, but I’m doing much better now, thank the gods. Also, I’ve been trying to get caught up on so much and get some energy back into my life. With the sun now being back on our side, I feel like I’ve got a shot. LOL. We’ll see. I’m just glad the storm is passed because it was touch and go there a bit.
That being lifted off my chest, I want to get something else out real quick. I want to bring attention to the nasty hate crimes that are hitting my country at the moment. From police brutality to racism to actual hate crime. It is utterly despicable and deplorable what is going on and I implore you to open your hearts and treat others with kindness. we live in a world where we don’t have to make things this way, this dark. This is a country that has been built upon many cultures and races. We need to move forward not be falling backwards like this. Lift others up, stick up for them. We are still struggling with a pandemic, we shouldn’t be hurting others on top of it. Live with an open heart.
End of the “real quick”.

Favorite book this month: The Book of Life was definitely my favorite. Sure, it took me almost all month to read it, but it truly swallowed me whole and I got so lost in the magic, romance, and incredible storytelling. It was so beautiful.
Least favorite book this month: Escape Room had so much potential and yet it just fell flat. Sometimes that happens.
See you, loves, next month!
More to come soon…
