March was a busy month for me – turning 25, preparing for Ramadan, and the ever-so-tiring process of job hunting made it very difficult to really pick up many books this month. I managed to get 3 in and ended up enjoying all of them! Expect reviews for everything!
- Arthur and Teddy are Coming Out – Super wholesome and super sweet. It is a tale about a grandfather and grandson coming out simultaneously and learning to deal with the reactions of their community. Teddy was kind of an arsehole for most of the story, but his grandfather Arthur’s story was so good.
- All Systems Red – I looove finding books through my mutuals on Twitter, and the Murderbot Diaries just kept cropping up over the past few months, so I just knew I had to start this series. The hype was definitely worth it.
- Infinity Gate – I requested this ARC a while ago and never found the time to finish it. This one certainly surprised me and had me gasping at many moments as well.

March is also my birthday month, and since last year, I’ve made it an art tradition to make a birthday art piece with myself and Kamisato Ayato (from Genshin Impact) – since we share the same birthday! I drew this live on Twitch – I like doing art streams occasionally when Im not playing games – come check it out! I did draw a lot more, but I haven’t finished them yet since I tend

A feature section to highlight my favourite posts from my fellow bloggers that were posted this month.
- Fevered Star by Rebecca Roanhorse Review by Lila!
- From the Drafts to Published: Interview with Lauren Thoman – Maddie’s interview!
- Webtoon Wednesday: My Husband, My Sister and I by Stitch (The ads for this webtoon have been relentless. I didn’t think I would enjoy it, but it’s a sort of story that is basically a trainwreck that you can’t keep your eyes off)
That’s it for this month! Tell me what went on in YOUR life this month! What sort of things was important for you this month? New obsessions? New TV shows? Or book? Any new song recs (I’m always open to new music!)? Best books you read this month?

I really need to dive into the world of Murderbot. I’ve never been a big fan of classic scifi, but this series sounds so interesting and I keep only hearing more and more raves. Good to know you enjoyed it too! Also LOVE your art!!! I hope you had a phenomenal birthday 🙂 Here’s to a wonderful April!
