The first quarter is gone, but I have exactly the same feeling as I had last year, that the year only just started. I hope I will shake that feeling off once the spring finally comes. Officially it is here, but I think no one told the weather. It was an average month reading-wise, I could not find anything that would hold my fancy for a while, until my mum recommended to me A Gentleman in Moscow, which I read with huge pleasure and it definitely helped me get back on the reading track. Writing though was not so good, for most of the month I did not feel like writing and I decided not to force myself, as it always shows in the quality of my writing. I decided silence is better than mediocre posts or reviews. I also broke my new year’s resolution and did not visit Persephone Bookshop in March, but I plan to catch up on the progress by visiting two bookshops in April, this will be the proper start of spring!
Happy Easter everyone! And Happy Prima Aprilis! What a nice coincidence this year!
How was your first quarter? Did you get off to a good start of the year?
