April In Hindsight: Bookish Conquests and Other Things
Happy Friday World!
Can you believe that April’s sped by already? I sure can.
This month was odd for everyone. People stayed and worked at home, and that has caused something of a strange situation. Time doesn’t really seem to exist the same way it did before, and while my state is due to open most businesses back up by May 15th, I’m already dreading going back to work.
Hopefully that won’t happen until June. I’ve had some real issues this month maintaining work-life balance with all the overtime I’ve been working, and quite frankly, I’ve had enough. At some point you just have to draw the line and say ‘no more.’
Work drama aside, this month has actually been really good for me. Let’s take a deeper look, shall we?
April was a really strong month for me in terms of writing.
This month I finished polishing up the entire first act, which is now ready for alpha reading.
This past week I also started my edits on the second act, but unfortunately only got through the first chapter due to how much work I’ve been putting into my dayjob. Still, I’m very hopeful and ready to continue the adventure!
While I go through my edits, why not find out where all the Reaper madness started with my debut novella?
If you like chills, thrills, Halloween, or creature features this book is for you!
It’s available on Amazon free for members of Kindle Unlimited. Check it out!
On the bookish side of things this month, I really outdid myself! I read 8 books and 4 short stories.
Almost every single book and short story read got at least a four star rating from me, so if you are on the lookout for a great book recommendation, definitely consider these or check out my reviews below.
Movie & Series Conquests
On the watching side of things, I think things went pretty well. I was able to review six movies/series.
I really enjoyed five out of the six movies and series I watched, with the odd one out being Girl on the Third Floor. If you’re looking for some great movies and series, definitely check these out!
That’s a Wrap!
All right, there goes the month of April. How was your month? Did you read or see something in my conquests? Do you have any recommendations for books, tv, or movies? As always, feel free to comment!
Happy Reading and Watching, everyone!
