April Wrap Up

Hello everyone! April was a crazy month for me, and a lot happened, some things good, some things bad and I’m not at a very good place at the moment due to the Covid Crisis currently happening in India which has affected a lot of my family members and friends and has just been a hard time.

WHAT I DID IN APRIL

April was a long and hectic month for me since I had a lot of assignments to do which took a lot out of me. I also had some presentations and some exams to prepare for so it was pretty packed with college stuff.

Other than that, I started posting on bookstagram more which was fun but also took a lot out of me. Unfortunately, my bookstagram was deactivated for no reason so I decided to make a new one which you all can follow here:

Lastly, the covid crisis struck India and it’s not been a very good time for me ever since as I’ve been hearing about a lot of sad news from family and friends. Pease try donating and helping if you can, here is a list of organisations you can donate to that accept international payment.

PLANS FOR MAY

I am going to be talking about books by Asian authors in May and recommending a new one each day on my story on my bookstagram as well as saving it to my highlights and dong a collective wrap up for them as a feed post so go follow me there to know these!

I also have exams in May so I need to go study for them and I also want to plan out content for June towards the end of May.

I’ll be doing LGBTQIA+ book recommendations on my Instagram every day on June and various pride posts here as well, so stay tuned for them – I am very excited! I’ll also be doing a wrap for the asian and LGBTQIA+ book recommendations over here on my blog as well, but my asian book recommendations will probably be a little late on here since I’m busy with my exams!

  1. I’m so happy you liked A Gentleman’s Guide!
    I got so excited seeing all the amazing books on NetGalley last week that I requested a number of them, and now I’ll have to spend most of May reading them 😂
    Hope you and your family are keeping safe. Things are so tumultuous in India rn…
