Stephanie’s April 2019 Wrap Up

Posted May 4th, 2019 by in Wrap Up / 2 comments

I’m borrowing Lauren’s (Bookmark Lit) format to do my monthly check ins. This girl has her numbers down to a T and I adore her for it!

April was a bit of a weird month for me. I started out not being terribly motivated about blogging. I’m not sure what changed but all of a sudden I was really motivated to start blogging again. I’ve been working through a new schedule and prioritizing blogging each day. I try to get my blogging done before work or on my lunch break. That really seems to be working for me as it leaves my nights free to spend with my husband and read.

I bought a MacBook on the 28th and I am in LOVE. I don’t know why we didn’t make the switch until now. Actually I do. The price. To be honest it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. The HP laptop I was looking at was only $50 cheaper (the price for the MacBook dropped by $100 the very next day and Best Buy price matched their own sale!). I decided I was going to start leaning more on the library so that it doesn’t hurt *as* much.

I’ve been on a huge reading spurt towards the end of April and into the beginning of May. I’ve also picked up reading/listening audiobooks again and I’m really enjoying them. I’ve been both more strict and more fluid with my reading for the last few weeks as well. Makes zero sense right? Well I picked out books that were already in my possession. I’ve stuck to that list. However, when a library hold comes in I let myself be flexible enough to fit in the library read. It’s been really nice!

At the beginning of April I really didn’t have a TBR so I can’t really check in with it. May will actually have a check in. I promise!

      It really is isn’t it? I wish I knew what caused certain times to be better for me than others. I have to be in the right headspace for audio books. If I can’t concentrate on the story I can’t listen. Lately they’ve been working though!
