How did we get to March? I’ve been in a reading slump and have had lots going on in life at the moment. We’re still intermittently looking to buy a house and it’s been way too stressful, so we’re on a break from that at the moment. I’m hoping it calms down soon, because I’ve been quite stressed lately. Hopefully I’ll be able to read and blog more when things calm down a bit, but all I want to do when I get home from work is lie in bed!
I’m also hosting the #AusYAChallenge on Instagram, showcasing Aussie YA books for the month. It’s been great getting recommendations so far and sharing some amazing Aussie reads. We really do have some talented authors! Check it out here.
OZYAY Radio Segment
Last week, I had my 2nd radio segment which was lots of fun! Seeing as I’ve met the girls already, this time we had more of a laidback discussion with each other about the books which was good. It’s lots of fun chatting about books and I still can’t believe that I get to be on air! If you missed it, you can catch up on below.
The next segment is on the 3rd of April, and we’ll be covering You’re the Kind of Girl I Write Songs About by Daniel Herborn, and Yellow by Megan Jacobsen! Check back for more details!
February Wrap Up Video
In my monthly wrap up video, I talk about the 7.5 books I read during the month, with mini reviews on everything. Would you believe that I still haven’t gotten the hang of booktubing? This is actually my third take of the video, I moved from my living room where I kept on getting psyched out by random neighbours walking past to the study where the lighting wasn’t great. Anyway, I finally got there in the end. Hope you enjoy!
Books I read during February
The Diabolical Miss Hyde by Viola Carr – Review

Jenna had a bit of a slump too, but she still managed to read heaps of books!
Aila had another stressful February but she read some awesome books!
