Notice anything new?
That’s right, My Midnight Musing has a new look. It is so exciting to finally find the time and energy to change things up.
There’s still a lot of tweaking to be done, so any feedback on what works and what doesn’t is much appreciated. No going back, now.
April has felt like a world of its own as we’ve adapted to this “new normal” and continue to adhere to lockdown rules. It’s been quite nice to have the time to catch up with little projects that have been left on the sideline but work still calls, and fortunately, it can be done at home.
I also celebrated my birthday at the end of the month and was lucky to see some glorious sunshine and my family kindly treated me to prosecco and pancakes at home.
The goal for April was to write more original content. From discussion posts to reviews, listicles, and everything in between. It’s been fun, if not time-consuming, and there’s a lot of pride in what’s been produced. Here is what went down on My Midnight Musing in April.
- 10th: Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer, #2) by Laini Taylor – 4 Stars
“The subtlety of their development was both moving and natural as we unravel the fears and regrets of our most beloved heroes.”
- 26th: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang – 5 Stars
” It’s authentic and original as we explore the tender passion of two vulnerable souls that find love and strength in themselves and each other on this gorgeous journey.”
TV & Film
- 12th: Midnight Movies: Movies to Marathon During the Lockdown
- 17th: Midnight Movies: Assassin on the run, time-hopping serial killers, and wedding chaos
- 30th: TV Talk: Castlevania & Vanity Fair
Waiting on Wednesday

Read, catch up on my TV shows and films. In an ideal world, I could do it all, but it’s a balancing act, so we’ll see where my moods take me. If the sun still shines in my little corner of the world, I’ll likely be roped into the garden with the family when I’m not working, but it’s nice to see our veggie patches and garden looking so lush, so I welcome the work.
However, the biggest goal for May is to create more original content, just need to get researching and writing. Let me know if there’s anything you’d specifically like to see on My Midnight Musing.
