April 2018 Wrap-Up & Favorites

April is coming to an end… A great month because it was Saint George’s here and I was able to buy more books than usual! However, I’m feeling worried because I think I’m becoming more of a slow reader. Last year I used to read about 12 books every month! What is happening to me?

☼ Books I Read ☼

Stasi Child – David Young

All The Beautiful Lies – Peter Swanson

Tangerine – Christine Mangan

In The Cage Where Your Saviours Hide – Malcolm Mackay

Birthday Girl – Matthew Iden

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society – Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows

Every Single Secret – Emily Carpenter (Soon)

Again, a good month overall. My favorites were the following three. I really enjoyed them, although none of them will make my favorites list this year.

Good morning! I hope March was a great month for you all. I read 8 books and I’m pretty happy with that number, as it’s my monthly goal. But I watched a lot of tv shows and movies too, so that’s why I didn’t read more… 😳

January 2018 Wrap-Up & Favorites

Hello and welcome to my first wrap-up of the year! First of all, I want to apologize for the my lack of posts and interaction this past week… My grandma died on Sunday night and on Tuesday my company decided to shut down and fired all of us.
