April has absolutely flown by. After one month filled with work, and one month filled with holidays, it was nice to settle back into a rhythm. At least, a rhythm when it came to blogging. I spent a lot of this month getting various projects and commitments under control, so lets see what fruit these efforts have borne.

Book Haul

I did it. I finally did it. I bought no books this month. And they said I was mad . . .


I spent a fair bit of time this month clearing up my backlog of reviews from the postponed WarhamMarch celebrations, and also managed to put together a pair of Halo reviews that have been germinating for a long time. it wasn’t all about tie-in fiction though, as this summary will show you


I only managed to write one of my planned articles this month, but it was a slight departure for me. My ‘ESSENTIALS’ articles will hopefully be making another appearance next month.

I also crossed the boundary over to OneReadingNurse to make a guest post about a fantasy series I’ve enjoyed recently.


A lot of this month was spent catching up with my SPSFC duties. Happily, we are now at the end of the semifinals, and there is only a short way to go before the finalists are announced.


Whew, that was a lot of links. I don’t have much to add this month, other than to say thanks for turning up to read all of this. I’ve got a rough sketch planned out for next month, but in general I’m going to continue trimming down my existing TBR before committing to anything else major. See you soon, kids.
