Since I started my blog in 2013, I’ve been an academic student. Whether it was as an undergrad degree or completing my post-graduate schooling, I’ve only ever talked about my experiences reading from the perspective of a student. And now that I am finally “adulting” and starting the career that I’ve worked so hard for over the last few years, I’ve noticed quite a few changes to how I read. Below, I’m going to talk a bit about what these changes are and how learned to adapt to them.
One of the main reasons I picked the #ShelfLove Challenge this year was the seasonal discussions it had. It’s a fun aspect and one I think will help keep the challenge fresh throughout the year for me.
Synopsis for Duels & Deception (from Goodreads):
Miss Lydia Whitfield, heiress to the family fortune, has her future entirely planned out. She will run the family estate until she marries the man of her late father’s choosing, and then she will spend the rest of her days as a devoted wife. Confident in those arrangements, Lydia has tasked her young law clerk, Mr. Robert Newton, to begin drawing up the marriage contracts. Everything is going according to plan.
This month has been absolute BANANAS! So little reading, so little blogging and so much work!
See, I started my new job this month and even though I will only be working part-time, I have 6 weeks of full time training to complete. Add to that a 2 hour daily commute: it’s been quite the adjustment. In fact, I’ve drafted a post about the transition from student to adult to be posted in the next few weeks. But I have to say, it’s fantastic not to have to study anymore!
