Month In Review: April 2017


Wow! The end of April really sneaked up on me.  This was a better reading month for me than March.  I ended up reading some great books.  I also completed my goal of finishing the currently published Outlander series.  It’s been quite the journey reading that series. I also read some ARCs this month but none of them wowed me.  Last week I found myself in the mood for some audiobook listening so I checked out a few Nicholas Sparks audiobooks from my library to listen to at work.

# Books Read in April: 9 (including 1 DNF)

In other news, if you follow my bookstagram account you may have noticed that I haven’t been active on it for awhile.  It’s been about 5 weeks since my last post on there.  I have decided that I really want to simplify some of the things in my life so I will no longer be using that account.  I am going to go back to posting all of my bookish things along with everything else on my personal account so feel free to follow me over there if you don’t already 🙂

  1. Awesome haul! I love that you got some Tarryn Fisher books.
    I totally understand about simplifying your life. I had a separate Instagram for my weight loss journey at one point but it got to be too much of a pain to have two accounts. I just started posting everything on my personal one, too. 🙂

    • Yeah! It was such a pain trying to go back and forth, especially with Instagram constantly logging me out of one or the other.
      I’m really excited to read the other Tarryn Fisher books I got! I loved F*ck Love so much!

  2. Sounds like a great month! The end of April snuck up on my too, ack. I like that we both read A Gathering of Shadows 🙂 And I’m impressed you finished Outlander! I still need to read Written in my Own Heart’s Blood. Currently reading The Bone Witch and so far I’m liking it, but it’s slow going… we’ll see if I end up finishing it. I can’t wait til you read A Conjuring of Light, it’s so good!! I think Geekerella was my other favorite April read.
