April Wrap Up 2018

We’re already a third of the way into 2018 and here comes my obligatory where has the time gone statement. April was super busy for me this year. To start, I took on a load of extra shifts at my job which was great but also exhausting, especially since I also have a second job as well. So, usually, by the time I’d get home I’d be so tired, I wouldn’t even attempt to open my laptop. That means, I also wasn’t as active on the blog, which I’m still so sorry about. My blog hopping game has been terrible recently so if you’ve posted something you’re proud of feel free to send me the link so I can read them.

I also celebrated my 24th birthday in April. I worked in the day but treated myself to an abundance of cake and Chinese food in the evening. It was a very relaxed birthday.

The good news is that I also read a whopping 2 books in April. This is a big deal since my prior record was just 1 book per month, so I’m slowly getting my reading mojo back. I read Say You Remember Me by Katie McGarry which was raw, realisitc, and emotional. It was the perfect book to get out of this funk. I also read Invictus by Ryan Graudin. This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2017 and it definitely lived up to my expectations. I love how Graudin explores the consequences of time travel and the character dynamics were incredible. 

Here’s a summary of April for all of you.

April Wrap Up 2017

Goodbye April. You were awesomely chaotic. I might be biased but I do believe April is the best time of year. Spring is in full bloom, the air feels fresh and I celebrated my 23rd birthday. It might be early but I’ve already entered this quarter life crisis mode! Adulting is hard.

So to celebrate the big day I was treated to a nice haul of books so my collection of unread books has increased in size…again. I also found myself in a self-induced food coma, it was a treat day. 😉

In other news I also started another job in April. That means I am working a total of 3 part time jobs now and it’s as chaotic as it sounds. I’m holding up so far so we’ll see how it goes.

Sadly, I didn’t have the best reading month and due to my busy schedule I spent the duration of April reading The Winner’s Curse. This book was beautiful and heartbreaking and I am happy I gave it a chance and terrified of the rest of the series.

April Wrap Up 2016

Hello everyone. Another month has wrapped up and I am honestly baffled by how fast the time has gone. April was a slow blogging month for me and I think part of the reason for this is because April was just so busy for me. To start, I said goodbye to 21 and hello to 22. Naturally I ate a lot of cake and stocked up on my books. On top of that a lot of family friends had an occasion to celebrate so it’s definitely been hectic. In my March Wrap Up the only two books I planned on reading were Salt to the Sea and Wolf by Wolf. I can proudly announce that I did read both of those books but sadly that’s all the reading I actually did so I’m hoping to read a bit more this month.
