April Wrap Up + May TBR

I had high hopes for this month because I had my holiday, however I didn’t actually get much done. Preparing for exams at school once I go back, participating in camp nanowrimo and trying to relax all at once meant I did each thing by half. I didn’t get as much blogging/writing/reading done as I had hoped, but at least I did something. I know it isn’t quite the end of the month yet, but this is just the best time for this post and I doubt I will get too much more done.

For the future, well my exams are coming up in a couple of weeks so I am going to try to get a lot of posts written before then do I don’t need to worry about it but we all know how I am with writing posts in advance. I am hoping to get up some book reviews for books I have read in the past little while so be on the look out for those.

Also note, you can click on any of the covers to go to that book’s goodreads page.

What’s Been Happening?

Hey guys. I haven’t posted for over a month now so I figured I really needed to make that happen. Here is a bit of a summary of what has been going on in my life recently and you can expect regular posts to resume next week.

 

School

I have finished all my exams and gotten most of the results back. I have done pretty well which I am super happy about, I’m glad that it is out of the way. The holidays are close so I will have more time for pretty much everything else.

 

Nanowrimo

I completed nanowrimo despite getting lost and having exams in that month. I wrote an astonishing 8k in one day which for me is an astronomical amount. Now I just have to replot my story so I know what I need to write next.

 

Computers

My computer is in a downward spiral into being destroyed and isn’t letting me open most of my files, I can still use the internet but all of my writing stuff along with to do lists and even school work is completely inaccessible. I have backed it up and can access it on another computer but I need mine to work because I don’t have another one. I have pretty much no idea how to fix it so we’ll see how that goes.

 

Books Read

  • A Court of Mist and Fury
  • The Dream Thieves (most of it)
  • Gemina
  • Rebel of the Sands
