My March

march1Hello! How is it the end of March already? What happened? o_O Anyway, this is my recap post for March – you can see the February edition here.

Spring is finally here! If you’re following me on Instagram, there are a few photos from my walks and such. I try to go for a walk every day because I want our baby to be outside as much as possible, and I did go out in winter as well, but some of those walks were really miserable for me (the baby was fine, he was all bundled up and protected in his stroller, while my extremities nearly froze).

In baby news: He will be seven months old tomorrow. I think we are currently waiting for some more teeth to make their appearance because of all the finger-chewing, fussing, and drooling. Yay for teeth, boo for fussing, poor thing doesn’t know what’s happening to him, of course. Pears are currently a huge favourite. He’s slowly figuring out how to crawl on his hands and knees. Stackable cups are wonderful. We also managed a few dates (sans baby) so that’s great!

In personal news: I had a neurological exam last week because I’ve been having some really bad headaches – turns out they’re migraines. YAY. Ugh. I’m supposed to keep a migraine diary now, writing down stuff about the headaches I get. On the up side: I had a CT scan of my head done and I received the images: SO COOL. Apparently, my nose is slightly crooked, who knew?! :D And I saw pics of my brain – the swirly parts and all. I’ve never had this done before (excepting an x-ray for my dentist) so I was pretty amazed.


The best read of the month was undoubtedly A Darker Shade of MagicI’ll write the review as soon as I get my thoughts in order. Other memorable books I read this month were Shadow Scale (review) and The DUFF (review), so not a bad reading month all in all. I tried to organize my TBR pile and I hope to read more of the books I already own in the months to come.

Tough Travels


The books I got:

  • darker-shade-magic-schwabA Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab. Amazing, I tell you. Go read it now. (purchased, paperback – so pretty).
  • Driving Mr. Dead by Molly Harper – this is a novella in the Half Moon Hollow series and it’s classic Harper – funny and entertaining (purchased for Kindle).
  • Animal MagnetismAnimal Attraction and Rescue My Heart by Jill Shalvis. Have I mentioned that her books are my catnip? Yeah… I still have some more to read but I’m saving them for later (purchased for Kindle).
  • The Abduction of Julia by Karen Hawkins – this is an old favourite; I read it ages ago but decided to buy the Kindle edition because it was on sale. (purchased for Kindle).
  • hidden-huntress-danielle-jensenHidden Huntress by Danielle L. Jensen – I read Stolen Songbird but never got around to reviewing it! I liked it a lot so I was really excited to find that I was approved for the sequel on Netgalley! Thank you, Angry Robot! Also, the cover is gorgeous, don’t you think? I love all the details.

This is all from me. Now tell me, how was your March?

What was the best book you read? Did you watch anything interesting?

I love hearing from you! :)

  • Sounds like you had a good month, minus the migraines. I suffer from those too, in fact, most of my family does, and it seems that the worse thing is trying to figure out what triggers them. They can be very specific. Hopefully your migraine diary helps with that.

    • Yes, I saw – it could be CHOCOLATE. Gah! Anyway, I’ve started doing yoga again, which might help, plus trying to get more sleep (not easy with a baby), and hopefully the headaches will calm down.
      Otherwise, March was pretty cool! I love spring – it’s my favourite time of year.

  • Wow, well your month has had it’s ups and downs hasn’t it? Sorry to hear about the migraines, I used to get some really bad ones a couple of years back, they’ve definitely improved, I always found stress and being tired tended to bring them on more so I attempt to sleep as much as possible and avoid stressful situations. Hope you manage to find a way to avoid them as much as possible. I have been loving your instagram though, I am such a lurker on there because I suck at picture taking, so it is always fun to see everyone elses.

    • Lurking is cool. I’m a major lurker myself. What else is there to do on Instagram? ;) I’m getting into the habit of snapping pictures but I’m still at some 20 followers so it’s more a personal hobby than a serious blog-related tool.
      As for the migraines – I started doing yoga again so there’s that, but sleeping more really isn’t up to me – it depends on the baby’s allmighty will (you’d be surprised how many things do, nowadays) ;) But I’m not complaining, that’s how it is!
