Welcome to the April Wrap-Up! April 2021 has been so strange for me, but it’s been amazing for figuring out more about myself and what I want in life. After leaving the Bachelor of Education in October 2020, I’ve been having epiphanies regularly on who I am and what I want. It makes me wonder when it’ll be over, or if it will be, but I’m enjoying the process.
First order of business, as always, is the list of books I read this month!
– Rogue: Untouched (eBook) by Alisa Kwitney
– The Final Six by Alexandra Monir
– The Cold is in Her Bones by Peternelle van Arsdale
– Bone Crier’s Dawn by Kathryn Purdie
– Cress by Marissa Meyer
– House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig
I’m proud of myself for getting through this many books this month, though I’m hoping for more books next month. I’m partway through Fable by Adrienne Young and that’ll be the first book I finish in May at this rate. The update on my yearly goal is that I’m at 31/75 or 41% of the way! According to Goodreads, I’m seven books ahead of schedule so I’m not worried about the pace I’m at right now. As of today, the year is only 33% of the way done. I’m still hoping that I can read 100 books, but we’ll just have to see how I do in May.
I’ve been writing my novel here and there, but most of the time I’ve spent on my novel is building characters and rewriting the plot. Several tremendous ideas have popped into my head that finally answer the questions I’ve been struggling over since the beginning. I hope I can begin writing large portions again in another month.
I loved all the books I read this month (and you can expect reviews of some of them coming soon) but I want to pick my favourite at the end of every month so that I can build a top ten for the end of the year. For April, I’d say that my favourite was House of Salt and Sorrows, with Bone Crier’s Dawn as a very close second. I’m so excited to read more next month, and if you want more reading updates, check out my TikTok, @litandleta! I’m nearly at 1000 followers, and then I’ll start looking at doing live chats with my lovely book friends over there.
Thank you to every single person who visits this page and keeps up to date on my reading and writing life. I am grateful to each one of you, even if you’ve only been here once. Happy reading!
