April Wrap-up

Hey look! It’s May 14th and I’m FINALLY getting around to my monthly wrap up. See what had happened was….no good excuse, lol. I’ve just been caught up with life. Being a “baseball mom” is killling me. 

Overall for April I read 9 books, bought 7 physical books, received 2 Arcs, and bought 5 audio books. I actually started utilizing my library in April so I’ve only bought what really interests me, books I want to reread, or books not available at my library.

I don’t include eBooks on here because I buy an obscene amount of those and I’m not ever in a mood for a self-induced guilt trip. So we are just going to pretend they didn’t happen. That’s how Adulting works right? Just ignore the things you don’t want to think about? 😉



Bookish Stuff




Physical Book Haul:

  1. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Review here
  2. Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
  3. Given to the Sea by MindyMcGinnis – I got this in my April Fairy Loot
  4. Living with the Living Dead by Greg Garrett – I received this as an ARC from Oxford University Press!
  5. Watch me Disappear by Janelle Brown – I received this as an ARC from Random House! I AM SO EXCITED TO READ THIS BOOK.
  6. Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
  7. The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness – so I bought both of these used from Amazon, and the bookstore sent me a hardcover instead of paperback. Normally this would be okay, but it doesn’t match the first two books now 🙁
  8. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas – Review here
  9. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas – Review here

Bookish Items:

I got the bag, the bookmark, the pin, the magnet, the ACOMAF coffee mug, and the notebook all from my FairyLoot box this month! If you haven’t subscribed to their box I highly recommend it! I got this adorable Chip coffee mug from the Disney Store, and 6 new Funkos! Links for those below:

These books were read but not reviewed either because the book either doesn’t fit the scope of this blog, or I haven’t gotten to it yet. I’ve added stars next to the titles to show if I recommend it or not though 🙂

  1. Across the Divide by Stacey Marie Brown (NA, Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy) 5/5 stars
  2. Alex by Sawyer Bennett (Contemporary Romance) 3/5 stars
  3. Garrett by Sawyer Bennett (Contemporary Romance) 3/5 stars
  4. From Burning Ashes by Stacey Marie Brown (NA, Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy) 5/5 stars
  5. The Silent Waters by Brittany C. Cherry – DNF this book. I might come back to it, but it was very cliche up to about 25%, which is where I put it down.

I had intended to do this post as a mini wrap up, but it appears that was not meant to be. So thanks for sticking it out and reading my two week late wrap up 😂
