April Wrap Up

April has been a slow month for me, with not much to report. Although I think it’s been my biggest unsolicited review book haul since I started blogging, so maybe that’s something. Wrestlemania was on near the start of April and for non-wrestling fans it’s basically like the Superbowl but bigger. It was a great show considering all the top talent injuries the company is dealing with, although one of my favourite Superstars, Brie Bella, retired so she can have a family with her retired Superstar husband Daniel Bryan. My favourite wrestler and first major crush Sting was inducted into the Hall of Fame which was pretty cool because he’s had to retire from in-ring wrestling due to a bad neck injury. I watched a ridiculous amount of TV this month thanks to Netflix including Full House, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 2, My Little Pony season 5, and Utopia season 2. I also saw Zootopia at the movies which I think was quite a good film. I just don’t have much to report on the book front!

I do however have a small change to make to the blog schedule. I will no longer be doing No Post on Sundays. Yes, it was a freaking fantastic title for a really great feature, but it actually took a lot out of me to collect all of those discussion posts together every week. From now on, No Post on Sundays is simply going to be a link dump of interesting content as part of the Monthly Wrap Up at the end of each month, and that means Sundays will be freed up for other content. The last No Post on Sundays will occur tomorrow.
