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!
That was April for me! How was April for you? How many books did you read? Which one was your favourite? What are your plans for May? Let me know in the comments below!
