This March has turned out to be the month of change not only for me but for the world. With this terrible Virus that is causing so much devastation. I must admit with everything that going on I have been struggling to read. I have been spending more and more time in my craft room than I have been reading. My craft room is my happy place where my crafting makes everything fall away. I think because I’m making something it keeps my mind occupied more that it does when I’m reading.
In these uncertain times, there are a least a few things we can count on to keep us going and one of them is our love of Books. Hopefully they will take us away from worrying about whats happening outside and take us on a new journey.
So as I said at the beginning of this post I’ve been struggling to read so I haven’t managed to read anything like I hoped I would have read. Basically this March I have only managed to read 4 books. I’m still currently reading one of books from March’s reading list. I and reviewed 3 books with 4 more reviews to write.

So the reasons for this months favourite book covers for the four different categories are:
The Shrike & The Shadows: I chose this cover as it’s it quite Gothic looking and that really appeals to me. Yes I know I go from light book covers to the dark covers.
Moon in Bastet: Now this cover entices because it look magical along with a big Egyptian feel to it.
The Gin O’Clock Club: Well say no more, I love my gin and I just had to choose this cover I think any gin lover would be enticed to pick this book up because of the cover.
Fakers: It’s the green colour of this book cover that catches my attention, it’s such a nice spring, summer colour as well as it also being a very relaxing colour too.
Stay at home and keep yourself and your families safe too.
