I have a BookTube Channel where I talk about Australian books. I only got one video posted this month, though I intend to get a bit more on top of it in the coming weeks. 

Favourite Bookish Photo:

So this is more about the book I’m writing than any that I read during the month, but I didn’t do any book posts! I’m really pleased with where my Camp NaNoWriMo project took me, though. The MS is now at 60000 words and I love the direction it’s taking!

You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.

Currently Reading:

Physical book: Nothing at the moment.

Ebook: I am reading an ARC of Lucid by Kristy Fairlamb, which came out last week. I usually don’t pick up ARCs after their release date but I follow Kristy on Twitter and the book was Read Now on NetGalley and here we are. 

Audio book: I am about a third of the way through Enchantée by Gita Trelease. I don’t mind it but I think it’s going to take me a while to get through. 

Planning to read next:

I’m going to pick up The Things That Will Not Stand by Michael Gerard Bauer and get back into my Children’s Book Council of Australia 2019 Notables challenge. This sounds like an interesting one and it’s quite short, so I hope I will get through it quite quickly. 

What are you reading? 🙂

    Congratulations on your writing. That is impressive progress. I have been thinking of working on something new since my last book but it’s been years now and I am yet to even begin. I think a writing challenge will help me get started.

    You had a good reading month in April. I hope your May will be even better. Have a fab new month.

      Thank you! It’s been a really long time since I have made this kind of progress on writing and had the possibility of actually finishing a first draft.
