Happy First Day of April! Whereas March feels like it’s hanging somewhere between winter and spring, April confirms it is now spring. I don’t know about everyone else, but my seasonal depression gets bad in March when the weather won’t decide where we are. The beginning of April has always made me hopeful. It’s the end of the university school year, the beginning of spring, and celebrating Easter is just around the corner. I’m not religious (Wiccan pagan, actually), but you can bet that I’ll be watching Jesus Christ Superstore on Easter Sunday just like my gramma does. The songs are unbeatable.
As I’ve done every other month, I’ll start with a list of the books I want to read this month and go from there:
– Rogue Untouched (Tab) (April 6th deadline)
– Go the Distance (Tab) (April 13th deadline)
– Elantris (keep working on it)
– Cress by Marissa Meyer
– Space Opera Catherynne M. Valente
– Fable by Adrienne Young
– Cold Falling White by G. S. Prendergast
– The Electric Kingdom by David Arnold
– The Cold is in Her Bones by Peternelle van Arsdale
– The Final Six by Alexandra Monir
– House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig
– Bone Crier’s Dawn by Katherine Purdie
I know that this is quite the list, but I want to make up for reading fewer books in March. The book I’m most excited about this month would have to be Bone Crier’s Dawn because I loved Bone Crier’s Moon so much. All of them look great for different reasons, and I’m so ready to read all of them.
As for my writing goals for the month, I’m joining Camp NaNoWriMo and continuing to work on my novel project from last November, which I got to 50,000 words on. This month, I’m hoping to add 25,000 words and begin planning my first rewrite of the entire novel. I’ll make some updates throughout the month to let you know how I’m doing with that.
Finally, I’ve got some other random goals like making TikTok videos I talk in them and working out more, but those aren’t as interesting for the followers of this blog. Thank you all for reading this post and following along with my reading and writing journey!
