April 2021 Wrap Up

April was a pretty subpar month….

April and I weren’t the best of friends this year. And considering I read something ridiculous like 25 books last April, it felt even worse. I fell into a bit of a life slump this month and it showed all around. I missed more daily posts in just this month than I did in all of 2020…. And it was a similar thing over on Instagram.

I also had a really hard time sticking to books and it definitely shows in my stats. I finished 14 books this month but 5 of them were novellas and 2 were a reread.

Teeeeeechnically I haven’t finished this at the time that I’m writing this. But I only have 30 min left on the audiobook and it’s a reread so I already know my rating. So I’m counting it since I’ll probably finish it before the day is over.
