Is it just me or did April FLY by? Meanwhile March felt like a million years.
Anyway, my month had absolutely no structure and was spent mostly finding enjoyment in hobbies and not putting pressure on myself to be productive. This worked out fairly well for me reading-wise, as I read 13 books this past month. I have some reviews from this past month that still need posting, but once they’re all up they’ll be linked here.
Aside from reading more books than usual this past month, I also discovered two new all-time favourites. Burn Our Bodies Down and The Midnight Lie! Both sapphic and incredibly well written.
I anticipate my reading will slow down a bit come May, as I’m starting my full-time summer semester, which will be my last full semester of my MLIS (after, I anticipate a co-op placement then just finishing one course online. The co-op was originally going to be during the summer, but like everything else, has been postponed. I’m glad I can get more credits in and continue with classes while everything else is on hold at least).

I also did really well in not getting any new books. I purchased one (well, and pre-ordered some that will be coming May/June) to support some sapphic spring releases that are being impacted by the pandemic. But hey, I’m happy to say I did a pretty good job at working on bringing the physical tbr down this month!
