Month in Review: April 2020

Another month, another month in review — template courtesy of Jenna @ Falling Letters! April was a busy month (settling in at home, birthday, blogiversary) and yet fairly slow and uneventful. Let’s see what that meant for the blog!

Books finished:

  • Community Life by Lorrie Moore
  • The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass by Adan Jerreat-Poole
  • Back to Blackbrick by Sarah Moore Fitzgerald
  • Fortune of Wolves by Ryan Griffith (reread)
  • Roy Spivey by Miranda July
  • The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gowar

Discussion posts:

Challenges check-in:

  • 5/10 books read from my chosen TBR
  • 0/2 Austen books read (Northanger Abbey and Lady Susan)
  • 0/1 Harry Potter book read (Deathly Hallows)
  • 8/10+ books I own
  • 6/10+ books on my TBR
  • 219/150 books on my Goodreads TBR shelf

Upcoming in May:

  • Showcasing some Beautiful Bookstores!
  • Some life updates and recaps of Vancouver living
  • Perhaps some more Music Mondays?
  • (Should I put logo rebrand here or am I going to embarrass myself when another month goes by and I’m still not done this? Anyways, I’m still working on this)

I found it reeeally difficult to read this month. A couple of the ones I read above are short stories, and most were carried over from March and I finished them at the beginning of April. But then there were several weeks that I started a couple different books but wasn’t feeling up to reading so I had 5 ongoing current reads at one point.

Hopefully I feel more like reading in May because there are a lot of great ones I’d like to get to! Especially since my Goodreads TBR keeps climbing :/

How was your month? Did you get much reading done?

  1. I read a lot in April but before that I struggled with focus and now that April is over, I have been struggling with focus when reading all over again. So you’re definitely not alone in that…
