What can I say about April beyond the fact that Endgame ruined me? There was a lot happening in April. We had the Easter holidays aka the weekend of glorious sunshine, the battle for Winterfell, Avengers: Endgame, and I celebrated another year of life. I can’t say 25 feels all that different, but my quarter life crisis has now been validated. I had a lot of fun in April. I went to the Aquarium, treated myself to some shopping, cried my heart out to Endgame, played a lot of card games, and soaked up the sun (when it decided to show its face.)
However, on the reading front, I didn’t make a whole lot of progress. I mentioned in my March Wrap Up that I had started reading Strange the Dreamer, and while I’ve been reading every now and then, I did not succeed in finishing the book. That doesn’t mean I’m not enjoying it, but I have long accepted that I take longer to read books now than I did in the past.
Nevertheless, here is a summary of April’s blogging month.
14th April: Mood Reading Influences
TV & Film
19th April: What I’ve Been Watching – Fish-talking superhero, charming adventure in Corfu, and Winter Has Come
Favourite Posts in April
Apologies for my inactivity on the commenting front, but I do read them and will try and be better at commenting. For now, here is a list of my favourite posts in April.
Briana @ Pages Unbound provided some stellar advice on how to revive and bring traffic to old blog posts.
Krysta @ Pages Unbound wonders if we really need a New Adult section?
Margaret @ Weird Zeal explains to us why she doesn’t like writing negative reviews.
Beth @ Books Nest debunks some book blogging myths.
Roxanne @ An Average Life discusses her problem with anthologies.
Finish reading Strange the Dreamer. That is my number one goal for the month, but I would also like to get back to scheduling posts instead of hastily writing them up on the day or night before.
Beyond that, I am literally just going to see where the road takes me and play it by ear.
What was your highlight in April?
Any plans for May?
