Book Haul|| April.



My book haul for April is pretty small. I somehow did not buy any books besides a couple of e-books! The only physical books that I got this month were two ARCs that were sent to me from publishers (one was a Goodreads giveaway win). Here are the books that I got this month. You can check out a full list of the books that I own over here. There’s links to different pages on my blog that show my e-books and my physical books. *I do need to update these pages since it’s been a few months.* 

From Publishers:


Faith Taking Flight by Julie Murphy
The Invention of Sophie Carter by Samantha Hastings

I am really excited for Faith Taking Flight (Goodreads giveaway win) and The Invention of Sophie Carter. They sound so good and I can’t wait to read them. They are being published in July, so hopefully I can read them soon and get a review up for you guys! 🙂



The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver

The Outsiders is one of my favorite books and while I do own a print copy, I wanted to get the e-book when I seen it on sale. Now I can carry it around with me everywhere. 😛 I reread it a lot, so money well spent. I plan to read it again in May. I’ve been wanting I Wish You All the Best so bad, so I was stoked to see it on sale as well.

What new books did you get in April? Have you read any of the ones that I got? Feel free to link me to your haul post, so I can check it out!

I spent the morning catching up on all of your blog posts and comments. 🙂 Hopefully, I don’t get too behind again. If I missed anything, please feel free to link me to your posts and I’ll check them out. I should have my April wrap up posted in the next few days.

Book Tag|| Goodreads.



It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a tag, so I decide that today was the day. I’m not sure where this tag originated from (if you know, feel free to let me know, so I can credit!), but I seen one of my friends answer these questions in in their journal and decided to do it on my blog. It’s a Goodreads survey (or tag), so all my answers go along with what I have on my Goodreads account and speaking of Goodreads, feel free to add me as a friend. 🙂 Here are the questions & answers:

What are the five newest additions to your to-read list?

I have two shelves of books that have books that I want to read and these are just from the books that I do NOT own yet.


Something is Killing the Children by James Tynion IV
The Aosawa Murders by Riku Onda
Love, Creekwood by Becky Albertalli
Bridge of Souls by Victoria Schwab
The Cat I Never Named by Amra Sabic-El-Rayess

What are the five oldest additions to your to-read list?

I have two shelves of books that have books that I want to read and these are just from the books that I do NOT own yet.


The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson
Willful Machines by Tim Floreen
Blood Red Road by Moira Young
Lamb to the Slaughter by Karen Ann Hopkins
The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by David Shaun Hutchison

How many books do you have listed as read?

I currently have 594 books marked as “read”! That’s pretty crazy to me, honestly. A little shocked that I have read almost 600 books. Blogging definitely helped with that, because before I started blogging I wasn’t reading nearly as much as I do now.

How many books are in your to-read-list?

I have two different shelves of books to read, so total together I have 1089 books on my to-read list. I know I probably won’t get to the majority of them in my lifetime, haha. I kind of want to go through my Goodreads shelf at some point this year and remove some. I actually think that is one of my goals for this year that I talked about back in January.

Are there any authors who are more heavily represented in your have read list?

A few authors that I have read a lot of books from are Rick Riordan, Mitch Albom, and Colleen Hoover.

Are there any authors who are more heavily represented in your to-read list?

A few authors that I want to read a lot of their books are Morgan Matson and Kasie West. I own a lot of their books and haven’t read them and the ones that I don’t own, I have them marked on my “to-read” shelf.

How do you sort your books?

I have a few shelves that I sort my books into. I have the standard “read” shelf and then I make shelves each year for audiobooks that I’ve listened to. That way I know what was audiobook and what was not. I have the standard “want to read” shelf and then I have another shelf I created called “TBR books I own” of the books that I want to read that I own.

Do you participate in the 2020 reading challenge?

Yes, I am participating in the 2020 reading challenge. I currently have my challenge set to read 50 books this year. It was 60 at the beginning of the year but I had to lower it, because I haven’t really been reading as much as I usually do.

Do you participate in any discussion groups?

Nope, I don’t think I have ever participated in the discussion groups on Goodreads before.

How many books have you read so far this year?

So far, I have read 17 books. 16 books I read myself and one audiobook. I’m actually kind of bummed that I haven’t read more books this year. I guess 17 is still decent though and the year is not over!

How many books are you currently reading?


I am currently only reading one book, which is Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) by Lev A.C. Rosen. So far, I really like it.

Do you write reviews? Do you read reviews?

I write reviews on my blog and then I copy them over to Goodreads afterward. I do sometimes read reviews too.

Any other Goodreads feature you use?

I don’t really use many of the Goodreads features other than rating books, shelving books, and sometimes the Giveaway page.

Do you follow any interesting authors or other people worth mentioning?

I don’t know? Haha. I just follow some of my favorite authors over there like Rick Riordan, Mitch Albom, Colleen Hoover, Veronica Roth, and Morgan Rhodes.

This was a lot of fun to do and I would love to see your answers as well. So, if you want to do this tag, feel free to link me to your posts. || Hopefully, I will catch up with your posts and reply to comments this weekend. 🙂 I am hoping to finish my current read today (or tomorrow), so I want to spend some time reading today. If I can get this finished, maybe I will have time to squeeze in one more book before the end of the month. *fingers crossed*

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.

Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About.


It’s been almost a year since I’ve done a Top Ten Tuesday post, yikes! 😛 I couldn’t resist doing this one though. There are so many books that I read and really like or really love and either don’t review them or don’t talk about them too much afterward. So, I figured I would highlight some of those books this week by doing TTT today. These are in no particular order. All titles linked to Goodreads.


My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher
Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall
The Fallen Star by Jessica Sorensen
Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple
Ghosted by Rosie Walsh


Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey
Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley
The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
The Witch’s Daughter by Paula Bracken

What are some of the books that you enjoyed but rarely talk about? Have you read any of the books on my list? Feel free to link me to your TTT post, so I can check it out!

I felt pretty accomplished yesterday because I finally caught up with my WordPress reader by reading and commenting on your posts! I was definitely a bit behind. If I missed anything or anyone, please feel free to link me to your posts so I can check them out. 🙂

WWW Wednesday #70.


WWW Wednesday is a weekly MEME hosted by Taking on a World of Words. Simply answer the following questions. 🙂

The three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

*All books linked to Goodreads below.


I didn’t realize that it was Wednesday and I wanted to do this post since last week. I guess the days are just blending together. I would have had this posted in the AM, but since I forgot…here it is at 4:30pm. 😛 Here is what I’ve been reading this week and what I hope to read next.

Currently Reading:


The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams

Everyone seems to be talking about The Bromance Book Club series, so I decided to finally read it. I am about a third of the way through it and so far it’s alright. I don’t have any complaints, but I’m also not that blown away by it just yet. Guess we’ll see what happens.

Recently Finished:


My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell

I finished reading My Dark Vanessa the other day. I liked it and gave it three stars. It was hard to really rate this one, because of the subject matter. At least for me it was hard to rate. I did like it though. It was sad and heartbreaking, but also creepy and so messed up.

Reading Next:


The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James
The Toll by Neal Shusterman

Honestly, I’m not really sure what I plan to read next. I’m just going by how I am feeling this month. I am trying not to put a lot of pressure on myself with last month not being so great for me. I have a few ARCs I may read and I also have these two e-books checked out from the library, so possibly one of these or the April ARCs that I have, or even something completely different. I have no idea!

What are you currently reading? Recently finished? Reading next? Have you read any of these books? Feel free to link me to your posts, so I can check them out!

I’ll catch up with your blog posts soon! I am trying to get back into the swing of things even though it’s taking me a bit longer than I want it to. 🙂

Wrap Up|| March.



I mentioned in my previous blog post that March was a rough month for me. The entire situation with COVID-19 has brought me so down, as I am sure it has for so many other people in the world. I already have hella anxiety about so many things and have been feeling down about life in general for months now, so throwing this into the mix has messed with me so badly. It’s been hard for me to focus on anything, especially reading. My reading and my blogging took a really bad hit in March because my mental health just hasn’t been there. I haven’t really been sleeping that great either, so there’s that too. I was really disappointed in myself as well that I didn’t read as much as I would have liked, but my mind has been elsewhere. Animal Crossing: New Horizons came out on March 20th though and that has been a light for me, so I’ve been escaping there. I am really crossing my fingers that April is a better month on all fronts.

Anyway though, here is my March wrap up. You can find a full list of these books and the other books I read this year over here. All will be linked to Goodreads below and I will also link to individual blog posts for them if I did a review.

Physically Read Books:
These are the books that I read myself (not audiobooks) throughout the month March.


Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett – 4 out of 5 stars
Infinity Son by Adam Silvera – 2 out of 5 starsReview
Wild at Heart by K.A. Tucker – 3 out of 5 stars

I finally read Starry Eyes and it was such a great book. I had so much fun reading it, it was cute, and I really enjoyed the characters. Infinity Son was a pretty bad let down for me and I only thought it was “okay”. There were some things that I liked and some things that were surprising, but it just didn’t live up to my expectations and didn’t blow me away. I was so excited to read Wild at Heart, but sadly it wasn’t as great as the first book. I was bummed out about that. I also couldn’t really stand Calla this time around. She bugged me so much for some reason. Overall, I gave the book three stars because while I didn’t love it, I still liked it and was happy with the ending.

What books did you read in March? Have you read any of the books that I read? Feel free to link me to you wrap up post, so I can check it out!

There were a few other books on my March TBR that I never got a chance to read because I was (and still am) in this huge reading slump all month. Hopefully, I can get the chance to read those soon. I’m trying to just take it easy and not set too many expectations for myself right now (especially not a set TBR) until I get out of this weird headspace and out of this reading slump. I think I just need to focus on other things more right now or I may just completely lose my mind. :/ I will catch up with your entries at some point today or tomorrow. I’m not feeling good today, so I am just taking it easy.
