April Wrap Up

April has been a crazy month. I started the month off by coming out of a bad reading slump, and then almost immediately got sick and didn’t read anything for a week. And I’ve spend this past week emptying out my grandmother’s house, which has been absolutely insane. I’m exhausted and sore and my brain is not […]
