Over the last few weeks, our lives have started to look a little different. Like many others, our life and travel plans have been put on hold indefinitely. And who knows how long it will be until life starts to go back to normal… Still, March wasn’t a totally bad month!
We still managed to celebrate one of our favourite days of the year – World Book Day! Mini read a selection of board books while I got stuck into A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder which I loved. (I’ll be talking a bit more about that in a bit, promise!)
We finally bought Mini a trike! This is something we’ve wanted to get him for ages but the hefty price tag put us off. And then I had the genius idea to look at Facebook marketplace and there were loads of good secondhand trikes available – at a fraction of the price! We got this blue and green SmarTrike for only £10! What a bargain! Plus Mini loves it – everyone wins!
Okay so I’m a bit behind on my MCU movies. Okay, I’m way behind but I’ve made a point of finally watching Endgame. And oh my goodness. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard and cried so hard in the same few minutes. Talk about an emotional rollercoaster.
My Netflix pick of the month is… Champions! It’s a one season wonder (sobs) but I felt that it was at its natural end anyway. Basically it’s about these two brothers (Vince and Matthew) whose lives are turned upside down by the arrival of Vince’s teenaged son, Michael. Oh and they run a gym!
I love pretty much anything that Mindy Kaling has a hand in and this was no exception. The cast are brilliant – many of whom you’ll recognise from other sitcoms!
I was desperate to see this at the cinema but we just couldn’t swing it so we pre-ordered it instead. In my opinion, it was a gazillion times better than the original Frozen movie. There was more of a storyline, more humour and an incredible 80’s inspired soundtrack.
As always, you want to remember to watch until the end because what you’ll find there is the best part. Honestly. The best part of the entire movie.
A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder
by Holly Jackson
I’m new to the whole YA mystery scene but I’m loving it! In A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, Pippa is convinced that a closed-case is anything but. She doesn’t believe that Sal killed his girlfriend Andie five years ago. And she’s determined to prove it – for her A-Levels, of course! But if Sal didn’t do it, who did?
This book is as intriguing as it sounds. I was hooked from the first few pages and was gutted when it ended. Luckily there’s a sequel coming out very soon!
One Of Us Is Lying
By Karen McManus
If we’re going to compare the two, I didn’t enjoy this as much as AGGGTM but it was still a five star read for me! Five students have detention together and one of them doesn’t make it out alive – but who is responsible and why?
I’m not overly keen on multiple narratives which is my only real gripe with this book. And to be fair, it was easy to overlook it after a while! I had suspicions early on about the murderer but doubted myself with every new twist and turn. Definitely one to read if you enjoyed Pretty Little Liars!
