Earlier this month (or it could’ve been last month), I made a post where I listed which books I hoped to purchase in the month of March; and I am proud to say that I purchased 6 out of those 9 books AND MORE!
March was a fun ass month! There were multiple book events that took place, as well as the Fall Out Boy concert and Melbourne Comedy Festival (which runs until mid-April).
Okay so long story short, I was sick on the day of the Tin Heart Book Launch, rocked up at Dymocks in the city – which is literally heaven in the form of a book store – and picked up 6 of the 9 books I had listed in my March Books to buy post plus one more which was recommended to me by Shivaun Plozza on twitter.
Books: Scythe by Neil Schusterman, Untidy Towns by Kate O’Donnell (recommended by Shivaun Plozza), Frankie & Tin Heart by Shivaun Plozza, The Wren Hunt by Mary Watson, Ida by Alison Evans, White Night by Ellie Marney (because I missed the launch).
I also purchased both Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman, and Ice Wolves by Amie Kaufman at the Obsidio Launch where I had them signed and personalised.
Books Sent to Me!
I was also sent a book from Bloomsbury this month!
I received Piecing Me Together by Renée Watson which is a Middle Grade novel that I’ve seen a lot of hype about mainly on BookTube because of its diversity.
I’m really keen to dive into this one as I am unsure of what it is about, choosing like always to go in blind.
Books I read!
StoryTime Wednesday Revamp!
There’s this little idea I had a while ago to post stories on Wednesdays related to books, but that didn’t happen properly until two weeks ago. I have started to actually post short stories! There are 2 stories already posted; Long Legs Flies, and Dissociation.
You can read the stories by clicking the link to the story you want to read above! I hope you like them, and I promise my writing will improve as the weeks progress. These stories are practice for the book I’m actually writing titled The Inversion!
Stay Happy, Healthy, and have a Lovely Week!!
Thank You so much for reading! I hope to see you all back here on Monday 🙂
