Oh my book loving friends…. what the heckin’ heck was April???!!!
March was all about reading and blogging and blogging about reading and what a successful month it had been book wise and then April came and I fell spectacularly from grace.
In what was the grandest of book slumps I managed to hit an all time record low of reading – one book.
It didn’t even rock my world.
This is going to be a very (very) small post this month. Don’t even worry about making a cup of tea to read it. A thimble shall do.
I received The Confessions of Frannie Langton as an ARC and my review is here.
My goal for April was to read the two ARC’s that I needed to get through – The Confessions of Frannie Langton (as above) and The Doll Factory which is pending and stuck in mental limbo at the moment.
Suffice to say, April was not my best reading month but life, oh life, got in the way and so something had to give. It was either reading or sleep people and I chose sleep.
My blogging hasn’t been awesome during April either and I was slack on the blog hopping and I’m behind on replying to comments on my posts but I will get to them – I swear it.
My plan is to take a brief hiatus in May and I aim to use this time to try and get ahead of future posts and catch up on my comment replies.
As to that one book I read in April? I gave it a 3 which is not bad so I guess April can at least have a happy reading average.
Let’s not go there.
Anything other than one book will be an instant success for May. I still have The Doll Factory to read and I still aim to read it but I think I’m going to just see how I go.
Which is what I said about April and we all saw how far that got me…
I worked. Like a lot.
My brain didn’t want to read after exerting itself and even over Easter when I had a four day break I didn’t use that time to catch up on reading but spent it eating my body weight in chocolate, drinking gin and taking multiple 2 hour naps.
It was awesome.
I saw Endgame though so that happened if that counts? It totally counts.
