April wrap up + favorites

Hey there!

April was a weird a month for me, and I bet for a lot of people as well. It felt like it dragged on forever but was also gone in a blink. I feel like I didn’t do much, or even read much, despite finishing 6 books. It was also a bit of a mess when it came to my posting schedule, but I’m working on that. 

Anyway, during April I participated in 2 read-a-thons and finished 6 books (by the end of the month I was halfway through another book, but that one will be featured on May’s wrap up):

  1. The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan (★★★★★)
  2. The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee (★★★★)
  3. The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky by Mackenzi Lee (★★★)
  4. Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater (★★★★)
  5. Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire (★★★★.5)
  6. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray (★★★.5)

  • My average rating was 4 stars
  • Formats: 
    • Audiobooks: 4
    • Physical books: 2
  • Languages:
    • English: 5 books

GOOD OMENS Soundtrack: Amazon on SpotifyGood Omens: I read this book last year because I knew there was a tv show coming out and I wanted to watch it afterward. However time went by, I got busy, and I never watched the show. Taking advantage of all the free time now on my hands, I finally binged this show and it was just as good as I thought it would be. Such an amazing adaptation! And the cast was fantastic, as I knew they would be. The humor in this is exactly my kind of thing and it made me so happy! 

PDF Crochet Pattern for the Funky Fringe Pillow Megmade with | EtsyCrochet: Again, with all that free time, I needed something to keep me busy. Crochet not only gives me something to do with clear goals, but it also relaxes me. It’s also a great thing to do while listening to an audiobook, would highly recommend. During April, I started and finished my first big crochet project – I made a sweater! It turned out very pretty despite being my first project and now I can’t wait for it to get colder out so that I can wear it around. It’s so soft as well!

That’s it for April. The lockdown is still going strong where I live, but apparently it’ll be lifted this month. I hope you’re all well and healthy wherever you are!

Until next time,

juli
