Wow. Actually a fairly review heavy month. And I thought I was actually doing kind of badly with that. But I reviewed five or six books this month... maybe seven, looking back now, because I reviewed a couple that I read last month, too. O_O Wow.

Anyway. I actually read a little less than I would have liked this month, but that was mostly due to the gigantic flare of all my illnesses this month that took me out about halfway through. I have had to withdraw from study (I am feeling okay about this because I needed to rest more than anything) and have spent about a week and a half just kind of... trying to recover. I am still not back to 'normal operating speeds', but I am doing pretty okay.

One of the biggest surprises this month in terms of my reading was Song of a Captive Bird, which came in my (birthday) PageHabit box (I am not affiliated with PageHabit, I just really love what they do...). Having the annotations by the author was amazing and made the whole reading experience just that much more wonderful. I didn't expect to, but I absolutely sped through this book and really loved it. 

I am already doing pretty well so far in April, I have read about three or four books, so I am hoping for that to continue even though my brain is kind of dead lately! Wish me luck.

Love to all who read.
