April Wrap Up

Reading time 4 mins

Welcome to my Monthly Wrap Up!

I feel like April went by really fast. I didn’t get as much reviewed as I would have liked, but I did manage to get some May releases reviewed. I got so much done this month! Not reading wise, unfortunately, but in my home. I painted my bookshelves and my book room is now my favorite place in the house. We also put together a play set for my kids. I am looking forward to warmer weather here, it has been rainy and cold for most of the month.

I posted Wrap Up Videos Almost Weekly:

    I don’t have too many books to read/review for May, but I had a TON for April and I’m still making my way through them. Only a few more left, but that has taken a lot of my focus. I’m glad most of my May reads are published at the end of the month though, so hopefully I can still get them posted this month and then go from there. haha

    Sounds like you had a productive month! That’s awesome.

    And yes, I AM going to BEA! I don’t know if I told you, or if you saw my post on my other blog, but I’m so excited that it’s worked out. My sister is coming with!

    Yay for getting a lot done – even if it wasn’t books! I am looking forward to warmer weather too and maybe less rain. Good job on your challenges!

    April has just gone by in a flash, I was the year to go quickly up to my holiday on the 26th September then it can slow down.

    I am so glad you read The Fireman, it was such an excellent read, will check out Flamecaster out of nosiness!
