The Month That Was... April 2020

Lockdown continues, food supplies seem to be getting back to normal and I've finally managed to concentrate on reading some books!

I've been lucky enough to be able to take my exercise through bluebell woods which are a short walk from my home. I've seen a lot of people missing them this year, but the lack of visitors is probably doing them good. The rain held off for most of April too which has really helped, it's easier to be isolated in the sunshine than when the days are dark and gloomy. I am trying to be positive because I do have it easy, but I also have little wobbles now and then.



Not so much progress on the writing reviews front but I'm going to try and ease back into that in May. At least for things I super loved, like Middlegame and A Good Girl's Guide to Murder. Please poke me if my blog is still empty half way through May!

I've been enjoyed reading Kelley Armstrong's Rockton series too. I felt a bit like I'd burnt out on her books after Cainsville went a bit down hill, but I love the premise of this one and it's not fantasy so it's a bit of a change, even if the male lead is so Clayton!

I bought 28 books in April but lets not dwell on that... I've been playing games as a distraction too, Two Point Hospital, Tropico 6 and Jurassic World. I tried watching Devs, but it was a bit slow, intriguing but slow. No wonder I'm not writing reviews, as I'm still working full time too.

  1. Gorgeous bluebell woods! I've never felt luckier to live within easy walking distance of the sea, although sometimes you go to walk somewhere that would be a really quick walk along the road but because of the way the coast goes it takes twice as long! I think I finished two books in April, so go you!
