Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

How has your week been? What have you been reading?

This time next week I’ll be in London having finally seenΒ Hamilton. I’m super excited but I’ve got a lot to do to get ahead. I hope to have everything ready so I don’t need to worry about posts next week but, knowing me, it probably won’t happen. At least I should get a bit of reading done on the way down and the way back. A two-hour train journey is always good for getting ahead on the old reading challenge. Truth be told, I’ve been very bad this week. I’m not even halfway through my current read so, from the look of it, I won’t be ready for a review this week either. June clearly isn’t my reading month. But nevermind.

So, it’s that time again. That time of the month where I cover up the fact that I don’t have a book to review yet by discussing the books I read last month. It’s the perfect crime. And I don’t think I did too bad a job in May. I thought I’d done really badly but I forgot about a few quick reads early on. When I say early on, I mean May 1st. I got a couple of NetGalley books done and dusted on the first night of the month and promptly forgot about them. It safe to say my great start didn’t continue all month. I did pretty well until about halfway through when I slowed down. I haven’t had a lull that bad all year. But I got through it. And I’m determined to catch up this month. Unfortunately, my first read of June looks like it’s going to be a slow one so I’ve already paused that and moved on to something else!

Creatively Content: Week 4 #cs_thelifeofpages

You know I love books. I’ve been photographing books since 2014. It’s my weird little hobby. It gives me something to do with my spare time at least. So, when this week’s Creatively Squared challenge was #cs_thelifeofpages I was beyond pleased. But then I decided I couldn’t spend the week just doing what I normally did. What would be the point? These challenges are supposed to be a way to improve my skills and help me become a better content creator. And, as my engagement is proving, it’s probably something that needs work! So, I decided to try and have a play with Photoshop. Something that I’m trying to practice with a bit more. I’ve still only got basic skills but I think I did okay.
