August 2020

I’ll admit that it feels strange, doing Monthly Wraps again. I sort of did one to cover my hiatus in this Weekly Wrap, but the last time Hail & Well Read had a proper Monthly Wrap was all the way back in May. It’s August 2020 now, though, as much as we’d all like it to just…not be 2020, which means it’s time to give it another go!

Monthly Wrap || April 2020

April 2020

I both can and can’t believe we’re at the end of April already. Why did March last a thousand years but April is already over? I need an expert to explain this. Please. Help me make sense of the passage of time, or I’ll be forced to do it through highly personal wrap posts.

Oh wait. That’s what we’re already here for.

March 2020

I think we probably all feel the same when I say March 2020 has been more like 31 years than 31 days. It’s been an exhausting, uncertain month, and continuing to create proves difficult. Which is understandable. COVID-19 doesn’t leave us with free time. This isn’t built on choice.

But I’m doing my best to make sense of things as they are, and I hope you’re finding ways to do the same. For now, for me, that means sticking to routine. And in this particular case, it means doing the usual Monthly Wrap.

Some things can still stay the same, thank goodness.

February 2020

It always feels strange when a Monthly Wrap falls on the same day as a Weekly Wrap normally would, but here we are! Today’s post is two wraps for the price of one, and it also means February 2020 is over.

Can anyone answer why January takes a thousand years to go by, but with February, you blink and you miss it?

Monthly Wrap || January 2020

January 2020

The January 2020 Monthly Wrap is special not only because it’s the first of the year, but because it’s the first on Hail & Well Read! There’s a lot to cover, what with all the changes this month, and we’d better get down to it. Best to be quick, so we can get ready for all the things happening in February… πŸ‘€
