So, this month, I’ve been mixing things up a little, trying to balance out my rereads and my first time reads, which I think I’ve been quite successful with. There’s been so many great reads this month, revisiting old characters and meeting new ones, and I’m so happy with how my Reading Challenge is looking!
Outside the World of Blogging…
I’ve been having quite a productive month, picking up old hobbies as well as trying to be as motivated as possible. So, this month I’ve:
- Visited the Natural History Museum for the Fantastic Beasts exhibition. I’m a huge Fantastic Beasts fan since the release of the first film, Newt Scamander being one of my favourite fictional characters ever, so I was incredibly excited for this exhibition. Needless to say, my family, my boyfriend and I had a great time there. It was a wonderful birthday gift to see them all so entertained and happy too.
- Worked on my writing more, managing my first short story since I was a university student. Needless to say, it took a lot of motivation, but I completed it recently and I’m relatively happy with the first draft. Here’s to many more successful writing months!
