March 2019

March has been a crazy month of trying to get my paperwork sorted for my PhD's year milestone, starting my big year of fieldwork and trying to get my hand fixed. There's a reason we call it Mad March here...

February 2019

February is an insane month. It is the month of my birthday. The month of Valentine's Day (which isn't quite as important to me). And the month that I seriously get back into my study life. Which has meant that I have been hammering the short stories a lot more. They're a lot quicker to read, and I don't get as wrapped up in them when I am trying to be a productive member of society...

January 2018

It's a new year... so hopefully that means that I'll start finishing off some series that I started a while ago... although... maybe not this month!

December 2018

I’ve been a little book crazy this month… mostly with the buying of books over the Christmas sales. But still… it’s all meant that I’ve not only got lots of new books on my shelf, but also lots of new books to sink my teeth into. Standalone stories Wolfish in Sheep’s Clothing by Marta Acosta…

November 2018

Incredibly busy this month. And exhausted. And freaking out because there are so many snakes. So I read lots and lots and lots of short stories late at night to try and help myself sleep...

September 2018

September has been crazy for me. I have had my major review, I've been doing fieldwork. And I've had a few social things on. Basically, I have been feeling exhausted, slightly mental, and incredibly productive.

July 2018

I start my fieldwork next month (hopefully) which means that I have been spending a lot of time sorting out the things that I need for this. So I've found that I've read a lot of novellas, and easier tales this month. They're a great, short way to distract myself. If I get too hooked into a full novel, well, then I seem to struggle to actually put the books down...

June 2018

This month I have been writing my first paper / literature review for my PhD. I have written my research proposal (somehow scarier than anything I've ever done before) and just in general felt overwhelmed and stressed. Which tends to mean I read a little more than usual... so it was kind of good, and kind of not so good...

May 2018

I seem to have had a month of headaches and migraines this month. I still managed to read, but it certainly wasn't as enjoyable as it has been in the past...
