April 2017 WRAPUP

I’m back with my wrapup, on time for once! This was an interesting month of reading for me – I read nothing for two weeks and then binge read for the last couple of days.

I read 11 books this month.

about the books…

Only three rereads this month, which is a lot less than usual! I tried to branch out and read five books borrowed from the library. Most of them were a success, except for Roseblood, which I took too long to read and in the end decided that I couldn’t get through.

My favourite book of the month may have to be Mary Barton, by Elizabeth Gaskell. Stunningly written, it portrays life as it was in Victorian England. *slams recommend button*


in other news…

School has well and truly started back, so we’ll see how much I can appear on this blog. Uni is coming into the assignment season, so that’ll be a contributing factor too.

The holidays were wonderful, and far too short! Only eight weeks to go till the next ones *waits impatiently*

That’s really all I have to say. Not a huge amount has been happening. I live a fairly quiet existence.
