Hello everyone. Another month has wrapped up and I am honestly baffled by how fast the time has gone. April was a slow blogging month for me and I think part of the reason for this is because April was just so busy for me. To start, I said goodbye to 21 and hello to 22. Naturally I ate a lot of cake and stocked up on my books. On top of that a lot of family friends had an occasion to celebrate so it’s definitely been hectic. In my March Wrap Up the only two books I planned on reading were Salt to the Sea and Wolf by Wolf. I can proudly announce that I did read both of those books but sadly that’s all the reading I actually did so I’m hoping to read a bit more this month.

May To Be Read List
I was quite proud of myself for sticking to my short but effective tbr list in April and because my family and friends know me so well I received a fair share books to add to my to read pile. My priority reads for May have to be The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater (my copy FINALLY arrived this morning) and The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner.
In non bookish news I have been making steady progress in my Walking Dead marathon and all the characters basically need a hug.
April was a busy month in my life but slow in terms of blogging.
How has April treated you? What books are you excited to read this month?
