#MonthlyWrapUp: April 2021

Apr 2021 Monthly Wrap Up

April was hectic for me!

I almost started a new job but that didn’t work out in the way that I wanted it to and then I did start a new job but that job is technically a month-long project rather than an actual job. I finished all of the training for the second job a couple of days ago and my project deadline is the 30th of May so I have plenty of time. (Saying that will probably come back to haunt me but whatever.)

As for reading, I managed to read five books. The beginning of the month was great and I had three very quick reads but my reading slowed down and I got stuck on Agatha Christie’s Cards on the Table in the middle of the month. I’m still not sure why because I enjoyed the book but these things happen. 

I do have a blogging update for May but I’ll put that at the bottom of this post.

Blog Updates

In May (and possibly June) I’m going to scale back on blogging a bit. This is just because I’m in the process of submitting my PhD thesis! I have too much paperwork to do and I need to do more proofreading and plagiarism checking and other stuff so I need a break from the blog posts that require more time and effort.

I’ll have one book review up per week because they’re already written and I also intend to post two other posts in May. There will be no Shakespeare Saturdays or Monday posts in May but I hope to reintroduce them as soon as I submit my stupid thesis.

Stay safe, everyone!
