Well, reading definitely picked back up for me in April. I found that the key was reading some real low-stakes stuff (romance was my personal life-saver) until I felt like reading my usual fare again. My finals end the first week of May, and then I’ve chosen to take a break from grad school until the fall for a couple reasons. It’ll be nice having a few months where work and personal growth/sanity are the only things I have to focus on! Also good timing, considering our Women’s Prize Squad Longlist.
