Monthly Round-Up

March’s Monthly Round-Up

March felt very long after that quick February we had, and I’ve had a very bookish month!

For starters, I attended London Book Fair for the first time! I work for a very small, niche publisher, and a contact of ours was kind enough to give us some free tickets, so I popped along for a day and caught some fantastic talks. The sheer size of LBF is a little overwhelming for someone like me, in their first publishing role at a tiny, tiny press, but it was so exciting to see lots of publishing professionals talk so passionately about their work!

As for reading, this month I conquered my NetGalley ARCs and got back to cracking on with my TBR pile, starting with the biggest and most intimidating book on my list: Simon Sebag Montefiore’s The Romanovs. It took me all of March to read, only finishing it up a few days ago. I’ve been reading a bunch of other books alongside it, so let’s take a look at my reads from the past month.

Note on Camp (Goodreads Mini Review) – 3 stars

Vagina: A Re-Education (Review) – 5 stars

The Tyranny of Lost Things (Review) – 3 stars

Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit (Review) – 3 stars

Social Creature (Review) – 2 stars

The Island (Hidden Iceland #2) (Review) – 3 stars

The Romanovs (Review) – 5 stars

Norse Mythology (Review) – 4 stars

I also read Olivia Gatwood’s debut poetry collection, New American Best Friend, but I only read it yesterday so I haven’t had a chance to review it yet (spoiler: I loved it). Keep an eye out for the full review next week!
