You’ll be seeing reviews of pretty much most of them in the following months as I schedule them. In the four months, I’ve been home, I have read 168 novels. Not a bad number, I do not think.
Okay, so if you are a faithful follower of Bibliophilic Monologues, you will know that I post something every day whether it be reviews, art or any article that caught my eye. I try to schedule stuff a month or so in advance because it makes things easier. I am still going to be doing that but there may be instances when I am not able to be as much on my game as I used to be because school’s starting.
I am starting my first year of MACL (Masters of Arts in Children’s Literature) and while I do not have much of an idea about the difficulty level of the program, I have been told that Grad school overall is demanding. If you have been to grad school, please let me know.So please forgive me if I forget to schedule stuff.
I am going to introduce a new feature on BM, starting from next Saturday, called Grad School-isms where I will share my experiences in Grad school, anything of interest, pictures, grumblings, whinings – fun stuff like that. Sundays will be free for all where I will post anything that I want to. Weekdays will, once again, be dedicated to book reviews but I honestly don’t know how many books I am going to be able to read and review once school starts. Soo, I guess we’ll take it a day at a time?
Check back later today for a book haul post. Thanks for reading!
