My city is now under lockdown and only essential services are operating. Household help will be on paid leave for now. Let’s see how much time (and energy!) that leaves me with for reading this week.
I read 2 novels last week–both for blog tours by Rachel’s Random Resources. They were fantastic reads that I enjoyed very much! I started a third book, also for a blog tour, and it’s going well.
I’m grateful for all these feel-good books because it helps keep my mind off the rising number of cases. I also intend to check my social media less to keep my anxiety from blowing up.
iRemember by S.V. Bekvalac
Genre: Dsytopia, Science Fiction
iRemember is amazingly good writing by a debut author. She has conveyed the mind-altering effects of narcotic substances in such a compelling manner using only her words. Her futuristic world is a place of intrigue and double-crossing, where extreme state surveillance makes it impossible to even have bad memories. The book may be a little difficult to get into, but once you find your groove, it only gets better.
My rating: 5 stars
My review will be posted on March 30.
New Year New Guy by Angela Britnell
Genre: Contemporary romance
I read this book in one sitting, staying up all night because it is just un-put-downable (and I know I had to finish it this week!) It is a bittersweet, heartwarming tale of two people, who are scared to commit because they have been badly singed by their abusive pasts, come together and find love in each other.
My rating: 4 stars

The Cornish Confetti Agency by Daisy James
Genre: Romantic Comedy
I still can’t get over how beautiful the cover is. I had taken part in the cover reveal of this book. Since then, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I began yesterday and I should be done in the next 1-2 days.
Other than these, I have three books to be read for blog tour reviews:
