April 2017 Month in Review

April 2017 in review banner

This post is linked up at the Monthly Round-Up Wrap-Up @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

Oof, how are we already a week into May?! The past few weeks have seen my energy diverted into apartment hunting. I have heard a lot about how hard it can be to find a place in Vancouver. Thankfully, I signed a lease yesterday! Now, I can put my time back into reading and blogging. I managed to skip ahead of my reading goal thanks to the 24 hour read-a-thon, during which I finished the final book in a trilogy, read three middle grade novels, an account of the 1913 Arctic disaster of the Karluk, and started two other books. I think it was my post productive read-a-thon 🙂
