Seasonal HighsI've shared quite a few discussion posts in the past few months, which are absolutely my favourite kind of posts to write: on planning what I read, on bookish guilt, on growing up and reading tastes and on change. I shared two birthday book hauls (here and here) as well as a backwards book haul, about what I'm NOT reading.
Spring also marked the return of Marko Monday! I'm going to share one of these posts on alternate months, when I'm not doing the challenge wrap-up post. So, hopefully, Marko will make a reappearance in July!
I read a fair bit in the spring, but my reviews on the blog have been mainly review books. It's been kind of nice to just read other books for pleasure, rather than writing a review, but I'm going to try and share some series mini-reviews soon.
My BIGGEST spring accomplishment (quite literally!) was that I read A Game of Thrones! I shared in this post that I was going to follow Debby @ Snuggly Oranges' reading schedule and it worked! Of course, it helped that I was alternating between the audio and the print versions. Also, I think Marko really enjoyed the deep male narrator with the British accent on our drive ... he sat so quietly and listened to the book! I'm planning to jump into A Clash of Kings in July -- it's a little bit longer, but I think I can do it!
Seasonal LowsThe low point this season was definitely having my blog hacked and losing my design. As I shared earlier this month, I tried to reach the designer who originally made Writer Grrl Reads look so great, but didn't have any luck. So, I decided to take a HUGE leap of faith and I'm getting a whole new design! I'm really excited to see what my blog will look like after its makeover -- so stay tuned for exciting changes on the horizon!
How about you? Did you read anything incredible over the spring months? Anything exciting coming up this summer? Leave me a comment below!
