So er, remember how I took last month off blogging since I was going to be super busy, and figured I’d then use any free time to get loads of reading done? Well somehow I read more this month than I did last… I did have a week off work, and I pretty much just got to spend that whole week at home doing whatever I wanted, so that inevitably will have helped. I also picked shorter books this month, which somehow always seems to lead to reading more pages overall (yeah, I don’t really understand how or why that works either, but looking at my past goodreads challenges, shorter books always seem to lead to higher total page count). Admittedly I also didn’t blog huge amounts, so it’s not too surprising I read a bit more than usual I guess.

Watching & Gaming
This has been a fairly light TV month – we’ve caught up on Nashville, and are slowly beginning to catch up with Agents of SHIELD, but that’s about it really. Movies-wise we watched Now You See Me 2, which I thought was okay, but I think that might be it?!
In terms of gaming, I played a bit of Sims 3 for the first time in ages, and we’ve also played some Mario Kart on the Nintendo Switch.
– Didn’t track at all again this month. Pretty much haven’t tracked since I was doing weekly recaps, so might be time to consider either bringing those back or ditching this section…
