March Achievements and Highlights
Posted every single day this month! This is the second month in which I have managed this (the first being September) and I only managed September because I had August off to schedule lots of posts. I feel like I’m starting to get better as as blogger, at least in terms of organisation!
Ran a giveaway for 5 copies of the first book in the Mina Scarletti series.
Read ‘Who let the Gods Out?‘ by Maz Evans to ~150 children on World Book Day, all of whom sniggered and enjoyed themselves hugely.
Completed all my parents evenings in one piece, included one conducted in Chinese!
Dd my second author interview with Haley Sulich, the author of Crimson Ash.
Attended an event in Waterstones Piccadilly where I got to meet Holly Black and Jen Campbell – a brilliant evening! I was really inspired by both these authors talking about the dark side of fairy tales.
Celebrated World Book Day ( a week late due to the weather – snow!) and dressed up as The Mad Hatter. Pretty proud of my homemade costume although still a little unsure if I should be worried over how easy it was to make it from my existing wardrobe…
FINALLY restarted my bullet journal after taking a bit of a break during January and February, due to not taking it with me over Christmas holidays and a busy time at work.
Won 4 books in giveaways – Brightstorm, Girls who rocked the world, Prisoner of Ice and Snow and Suffragettes and the Fight for the Vote. Feel incredibly lucky!
Finished off my month by taking a trip into London where I went to the British Museum for Living with Gods, a fascinating exhibition about various beliefs in supernatural around the world (ends April 8th!), took a wander around several secondhand bookshops (Judd Books, Skoob Books, Oxfam Books), visited the London Mithraeum (A Roman temple underground near Bank Station!) and stocked up on Harry Potter merchandise from Primark. I had a brilliant day and it was a lovely way to start off my Easter holidays.
Blog gained over 370 followers and over 1.7k views, which has made me very happy.
Favourite tea: Still drinking lots of the Super Green Tea Tropical flavour and also loving Green tea with Gingerbread which is great for these chilly spring days.
Watching: Being Human (UK version). I watched the first few episodes of this years ago, when I picked up the DVD of the first series when living in China. I loved it so not entirely sure why I never watched the rest of it, but it has appeared on Netflix so am re-watching Series 1 and planning to continue. Character-driven story make this a favourite!
