April 2020 Recap & May TBR



Hi everyone!

I hope you're all healthy and safe. It's taken a while for me to get used to this new normal, but I think I have settled into a routine that helps me with my productivity. Of course, not every day is a success and I have days when I just have zero motivation, but I have to tell myself that it's okay. Feeling guilty about it is getting me nowhere. Besides working and studying, I've been doing a lot of baking. My classmate is actually one of my neighbors, so thankfully I've been able to share my baked goods with her. So far, I've made mini cheesecakes (success!), brownies from scratch (fail!), cream cheese cookies (success), and lemon drizzle cake (success!)! P.S I did not make these all in April - some of these were made in March! 😅

As far as reading goes, it's been okay considering everything that's going. I've been reading the Psy-Changeling books. I only have two books left in this series then I can catch up on the spin-off. It's brought me so much joy and it's just such a great series! I am very behind on my ARCs though so I'm hoping to play catch up this month.

Here are my reading updates:
