Snippets of a year in April‘s life following the death of her stepfather. These snapshots show her process of mourning, addressing depression, and entering a new relationship. Some parts were moving and the concept was interesting, but the ending really threw me and didn‘t make sense for the diary style. #booked2019 #newtomeauthor

BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job on ✔️a prompt! But sorry it was ultimately so unrewarding. 7mo
Cinfhen Was this NF or fiction ?? You‘re off to such a good start 7mo
Blaire @BarbaraTheBibliophage I liked her writing but to me the ending didn‘t make sense and didn‘t track with the tenor that had come before. 7mo
Blaire @Cinfhen it was fiction. Goes through the year following her stepfather‘s death. Very short chapters 2-3 pages. 7mo
