What have you been reading this week?
March is never the best reading month for me because it’s my birthday month. I tend to have busy weekends, which means less time for books. This year, I’ve also felt really rotten. I’ve self-diagnosed myself with Covid so many times because of how bad I feel. Thankfully, all of my lateral flow tests have been negative. If I can just get rid of this cold, I should be able to get back on track in April.

- FILM REVIEW – West Side Story (2022)
I love a musical but I’m not exactly a huge West Side Story fan. It’s not the musical itself but I guess I’d be wary of anything based on Romeo and Juliet. But I had to check out Spielberg’s remake. Especially now it was on Disney+. Did it change my mind about the film? Check out my review to find out.
- BOOK REVIEW –Mother For Dinner by Shalom Auslander
Earlier this month, I asked my Instagram followers to pick my next book based on the opening line. This was the one they chose. I was excited to read it but picked it up at the start of my cold. Meaning progress was slow. I finally finished it this week. Check out my review to see how it was.
- Mother For Dinner by Shalom Auslander
In order to finish this on time, I had to get the audiobook. I listened to the second half at work on Monday. I wish that I’d been able to read it all but it just wasn’t working out. It’s a shame because this book was so funny. I needed to read it when I was in a better frame of mind.
- Black Dogs by Ian McEwan
I didn’t post a review on Friday but I was planning on doing it. Although, I knew my current read was going to happen. So, I listened to this Ian McEwan audiobook on Friday. Not my favourite by the author but interesting.
- Loki by Louie Stowell
I was very interested to see how this worked out. I love Norse mythology anyway and I love seeing how that is written for a younger audience. This one is mixing the myths with books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which seemed like a fun idea.
I think I’ve been quite good this week and not bought anything. I’m going to try and keep it going in April. Although, I have got a few pre-orders on the way. I don’t think they count.
- Modern Family – Still watching this again. I don’t know whether it’s an American/UK thing but I don’t find this show funny per se. It is sweet though and I like the characters.
