Dear May - Sincerely, April


Because apparently I'm doing recap posts again.


- I had quite a reading slump this month. I think I only enjoyed about three of the books I read? Plus, since one of those was over 800 pages (@ Stephen King: why), I didn't get to a lot of the good books I was hoping I would get to. But I DID read:


- Mary Poppins is a thing that happened. I loved doing crew for my school's musical - this is my fourth time participating in a school performance in some capacity - but man, MP is a long show. Four highly stressful 2.5 hour performances plus a slew of 8 hour practices takes it out of you, lemme say.

- Have a mixtape.



- I WILL FINISH KARISSA GOLDLOCK'S GUIDE TO (ALMOST) UTTERLY EVERYTHING IF IT KILLS ME. You know that MG steampunk pirate novel that was supposed to be done in December? And then in January? And then in February?
Yeah.
It's still not done.
BUT IT WILL BE. I SWEAR.

- I will also maintain straight A's if it kills me. Okay, maybe not in chemistry. Might have to settle for an A- there. I'd like to strangle whoever thought calculating equilibrium concentrations of weak acids and bases would be a fun thing to invent, please.

- SO MANY EXCITING RELEASES. On the movie front - Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Guardians of the Galaxy 2. On the book front - Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh, The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich, and Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia.


What were you reading, writing, and listening to this month? What May releases are you looking forward to? Other May goals? Comment. I made a special banner inviting you to comment. Don't hurt the banner's feelings.

Namarië,
Ellie

  1. *sends lots of motivation and encouragement to finish your WIP* You can do it! Keep at it and you'll finish soon! Which of the three books did you enjoy? I'm hoping Hunted is one of them as I plan on reading it sometime. :)
    My May goal is to finish editing another 20,000 or so words in the second draft of Golden Revenge. It's in the editing phase where I wish my books weren't so long! XD

    1. Thank you, ahhh! I liked 11/22/63, A Good American, Letters From Fr. Christmas, and the Fairyland book (so four, I guess). I didn't HATE Hunted, it just felt pretty repetitive and unoriginal at parts.

      Best of luck!!
