Monthly Wrap Up: April Edition + Book Haul + May Tentative TBR💜

Good afternoon, everyone!
Happy Monday. I hope your week is off to a great start! I got to sleep in a bit this morning and it felt amazing. I finally have a day off so it feels a bit like a Saturday. As always, I still have some work stuff to do and I have a meeting so it isn’t like a real day off but I am just happy that I got to sleep in and the day is “slower” than usual.

Today’s post is a monthly wrap up post where I will re-cap the month of April from a bookish standpoint with a few miscellaneous things thrown in! This post also has a recent book haul and a very tentative TBR. I am not sure it really counts as a TBR… it is just a list of books I am hoping to read this month. 😂 I hesitate to call it a TBR because I might not even stick to it 😂 #MoodReaderProbs

Overall Reading Goal Update
33/100

Total Books I read in April: 9/10

Books I Finished
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
Crave by Tracy Wolff
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
Brave by Jennifer Armentrout
A Touch of Darkness by Scarlet St. Clair
The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer Armentrout

Book(s)I DNF’d
The Stand by Stephen King – I think I am going to just press pause on this book for right now. I feel so bad since my best friend recommended it to me, but it just really isn’t interesting me at this time.

Top 3 Favorite Reads of April
The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer Armentrout
Crave by Tracy Wolff
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh

TV Shows I Watched/Started Watching
Shadow and Bone😍 (planning to finish the show either today or tomorrow!! Be sure to watch out for my review, which should be coming some time this week!)

Foods I have been loving
Trader Joe’s samosas
Trader Joe’s blondie bars

I generally do not shop at Trader Joe’s because it is really expensive but they have a few things there that I just love and you can’t get them anywhere else! The employees there probably laugh at the fact that I literally buy, like, three boxes of samosas and a couple boxes of their blondie bar mix 😂 What are some of your favorite baked goods to buy (at any store)?


Book Haul
Blessed Monsters by Emily A Duncan
Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead
Unspoken by Sarah Reese Brennan
Crush by Tracy Wolff

Tentative May “TBR” (or books that I am hoping to read this month)
Crush by Tracy Wolff
A Touch of Ruin by Scarlet St. Clair
Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead
Blessed Monsters by Emily A Duncan
Unspoken by Sarah Reese Brennan

May Reading Goal: 10 books
May Blog Goal: Participate in more book/blog tags and post more book reviews even if they are short and sweet!
