It’s now May. It was April. I have a month left in my graduate program. I am slacking on blogging. I’ll keep trying, but my posting habits PROBABLY won’t pick up much until June. My reading, on the other hand, has been doing really well. I’ve got lots of books that I’ve read and loved from the last month!

I read roughly on-pace for April as I had for March, which is good because it felt like I read a ton less. I got a handful more ARCs read (though I still need to review them… I’m cringing at all of those “review forthcoming!” notes that are still forthcoming because I’m a tired mess…) I’m anticipating May to be probably about the same, and I’m really hoping that once the middle of June hits I’ll be able to read even more! (Extra good thing considering I’m still making my way through my NetGalley ARCs… Whoops.)
On The Personal Side…
I’m one month from graduating. I’m just tired. What have I been doing for the last month, even? I’m kind of drawing a large blank.
I went to the 2018 Oregon Library Association conference, which was cool because it was my first library conference. Extra points for location — it was located in my area so I could just take the bus from my house to get to the conference! No hotel costs! Yay! Travel is so expensive.
I’ve been re-watching Queer As Folk (US) for the last week-ish and I’ve gotten partway through season 4. It’s been giving me a lot of feelings that I hadn’t had while watching it last time, and it’s affecting my current WIP (possibly for the better?).
That’s about it… April has been rather uneventful. I’m not sure if this is a good thing. Oh well!
What were you up to in April? Any good reads?
