April 2015 Roundup

Well.  Life in April was hectic… I started my new job, took a family trip to San Antonio, had out-of-town company come to visit, and have spent free time on other hobbies besides reading and book blogging, namely watching baseball and working on a new cross stitch project.

I kind of predicted that April would be a down reading month for me and boy, was it ever.  I only read four books, which isn’t super terrible, but it is the lowest number of books I’ve read in a month since last May and even when I liked a book or recognized a book was good, I just didn’t find myself wowed by anything, which is always a disappointing place to be.  I also did absolutely no blogging and have been coasting by on reviews I wrote back in March.  I don’t anticipate the reading slump will last, but the blogging slump, I’m feeling less sure about.  We’ll see.

Books Read:

Before I Go by Colleen Oakley

I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson (audio)

In the Works: I’m currently reading Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty and I’m listening to Nine Uses for an Ex-Boyfriend by Sarra Manning on audio.  I have a couple more books checked out from the library that I hope to get to and maybe I will drag myself out of the reading blahs soon.

Blogging-wise I have reviews scheduled out for the next few weeks, but I haven’t really had time or inclination to get caught up on writing reviews or scheduling any other sort of posts.  (Even getting this one up has been challenging.)  I might take a break for a while, but I’m still thinking about it.

Other than that, I’d like to take May as a time to lay low for a while and catch up on some quiet time.  That might be a pipe dream, as the semester is ending which equals super crazy time in a household with one professor and one higher education professional.

What’s going on in your reading/blogging/regular lives?
