The BFR Round-Up March 2022

A bookstack from the Buxton International Festival as featured in The BFR Round-Up March 2022

My best intentions went out of the window during March after feeling unwell for a few weeks. My main focus was improving my health and getting some sleep so I cut back on superfluous stuff for a while. Luckily the rest of the family was a tad more active with Little M appearing on stage, and Al managing to get away for a short weekend break.


My book count was the lowest it’s been for a while with only two books finished. I could only really manage YA/MG due to lack of energy. I enjoyed both.

Books Read (17 books out of 75 target)

  • Patina by Jason Reynolds (4/5)
  • The Strangeworlds Travel Agency by L.D.Lapinski (4.25/5)


The Rovelli stood out for Al in March. I read it earlier this year so it was good to compare notes. The White Tiger was a mixed bag. He’s glad that he read it, but found that it didn’t hang together fully.

Books Read (6 out of 30 books)

  • The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga (3.5/5)
  • Seven Brief Lessons on Physics by Carlo Rovelli (4/5)

Little M

Bits of books and only one full one, The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke.

Books Read (5 out of 28 books)

  • The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke (5/5)

Film and TV

We’re still watching Malcolm and the Middle (yay for lots of episodes!). We also checked out the first episode of Moon Knight – great performance by one of my personal faves, Oscar Isaac.

Days Out

It made a nice change to stay mainly local with trips to the theatre and to a school performance. I’m still building up my reserves so will be taking it easy over the next few weeks, ideally cosying up with a good book or two in April. I’m planning to read at least one of the titles in my the Buxton International Festival bookstack (shown in photo).

Wishing you blue skies and sunshine.

Mel, Al & Little M
