So here we are another month another wrap-up. Lock-down is lifting but I still find myself reluctant to leave the house, I’m not quite ready to test my rocky social skills on acquaintances and strangers, but this is causing a fair bit of fomo and I could really do without it. I did buy a pair of quad-rollerskates though in an effort to try and bring some sort of exercise back into my life, I wish I could bring back the head-space that had me loving the gym back in February 2020 but we’re going to try learning something new instead. I’ll keep you guys updated on my progress!
Post-wise I actually posted more than normal this month, hurrah for a busy month! I’ve updated the Publishing Work Experience Master Post, alongside all the loveliness below so don’t forget to take a look at that too.
What I read in April
Can you tell that Rule of Wolves and the Shadow and Bone Netflix series came out this month because I can. Basically, I put everything off and re-read the Shadow and Bone trilogy and the Nikolai Duology, and if I’m honest I might get through the Six of Crows duology next month because who cares about my to be read. It’s been nice to be back in this world with some of my favourite characters and these books are just so easy to read.
The nice part is that I made it through both my currently reading books for this month! Detransition, Baby and A Dark and Hollow Star were two very different books and hopefully my reviews of each book with show up next month.
I’m currently making my way through The Poppy War, and loving the exquisite and kinda effortless world-building that Kuang is giving me. I’ll also hopefully be kicking Threadneedle off my to be read and if I have the time it’ll be reviewed this month too, fingers crossed for a rare quick turn around so I can get it done in time for the books publication.
To be Read
Soooo my arc backlog is starting to stress me out so May really will have to be “raise my Netgalley percentage month” because I’ve let it build up. You’ll have seen these three before but we’ll be trying to get through two arcs Hall of Smoke and The Cup and the Prince, alongside the last of my Women’s Prize for Fiction to be read No One is Talking About This.
Well that’s what I’ll be getting up to in the month of May! Hopefully I’ll be bringing you reviews of some of the books I read last month, and some new publishing content as we get called back to the office. Talk to you next month ❤
