March TBR and Goals {2020}

Is it really time for a new monthly TBR? Didn’t I just start February’s? So much happened in February this year, but it still doesn’t seem like it ought to be time for March! Alas, it apparently is, so here is my (maybe-)TBR list and a few goals for this month.

Have you started thinking about gardening yet? In truth, I don’t think I ever really stopped thinking about gardening this winter. Although I know that I will be much busier once we start planting, I’m really looking forward to trying some new things this year! I just need to finalize which new things I’m going to try this time, and which need to wait. Hopefully I will have this figured out by the end of March.

Do you have a favorite book set in Ireland or by an Irish author? This year is my first time participating in an Irish Readathon (and I decided to take on two!), and I was surprised how difficult it was to find books for it. Of course, I’ve read a few of the classics by authors such as James Joyce before, but finding contemporary books that fit my taste is much more difficult than I anticipated! If you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them.

Until the next chapter,

Jana

  1. I’m always thinking about gardening! We can really get anything into the ground until the end of May, but we’ll be able to plant some seedlings and put them under grow lights soon. Yay!

    Good luck with your challenges and goals!
