April 2016 Wrap-Up


I was one busy bookworm this month and have reached my new personal best of 9 books in one month – YAY!

Books that weren’t on my TBR:

Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, #3)   Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices #1)   Nowhere But Here (Thunder Road, #1)   26760138   Tone Deaf   With Malice   In the Hope of Memories   Second Chance Summer   Thanks for the Trouble

As always, click on the titles above to get to the reviews (or on the name of the people I read the books with, to get to their reviews if they are up yet) and on the covers to be redirected to Goodreads!


There is not really all that much to say about this month. Work has been work. Reading has been reading (although it went quite splendidly). The only thing out of the ordinary was that I went to my second concert of the year – Florence and the Machine! It was a weird, sort of religious experience. Florence never fails to give a great performance!

Another little highlight of mine was that I’ve written more than 500 posts now – wohooo! I think that’s an accomplishment that deserves a bit of recognition as well.





How was your month? Did you do something exciting? How are you faring with your reading?

  1. Besides the holiday with a weird diet, I’ve had a pretty good month. It’s next month that I’m excited for, though: I’ll probably get my start date for my new job this coming month, and I’ll move into my new apartment soon after that. Things are looking up for me.


  2. I finished my first mission with my new employer, and I survived, so that means it was a good month! As for reading, I stepped out of my comfort zone and was rewarded with great discoveries.
    Here’s to May being a great month!

  3. YASSS FOR NINE BOOKS! And almost all of them were 4 and 5 stars (let’s not talk about Library of Souls hahaha)!
    I really need to read a Morgan Matson book- any would be fine as all of them seem to have fantastic reviews! She has another one coming out soon I think in…May??? (My memory is terrible) called the Unexpected Everything which looks like fun!
    I dabble sometimes in some Florence and the Machine music and she seems like the artist who’s concert would be an experience to say the least!
    Glad you had a great April!

    • Yep, The Unexpected Everything is already pre-ordered and on it’s way to me 😀 All of Matson’s books are great. If you want one about romance read Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, for friendship I suggest Since You’ve Been Gone and for family Second Chance Summer. All of them have an underlying theme of loss, but they are sweet and fun nonetheless.


  4. I would kill to be at a Florence and the Machine concert! Their songs are just so good and the live performances I’ve seen online are amazing. I so need to read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children before the movie comes out. But I don’t know… do you think it’s worth to read it?

    • Florence was amazing! If you ever do get the chance, try and see her. Her energy is crazy!
      Well … I am not a fan of the book series, so I don’t know. They films seem VERY different from the books though … I am not sure, you will probably have to decide for yourself on that one. Many people love it, but just as many think it’s terribly boring.

  5. Well done at reading 9 books! I read 22 this month, but I didn’t complete the progress I wanted to complete in some of the books that I am in the middle of reading.
