What can I say about April? All the days are kind of blurring together, aren’t they? Thankfully the weather has been quite glorious for most of the month so we were able to spend a lot of time outside in the garden. With wine. Really can’t complain 😉.
Now if you think I’d be spending all that lovely time in the sunshine reading, you’d be awfully wrong. It’s not that I didn’t take a book outside with me. It’s just that it barely left the table. Watching and enjoying nature, listening to the birds … it all seemed way more fun than reading.
Let’s see what did make it off the shelves this month, shall we?
| BOOKS I READ IN APRIL |
Yep, you’re seeing that right. Ten. A grand total of 10. It’s better than nothing, I guess, but I am beginning to wonder if my inner bookworm / reading addict will ever return. 😅. Four outstanding books on that list though. Feel free to guess which ones they are. (Still no prizes for getting it right, Kelly. 😜)
Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed Hamnet is missing from that list. The reason for that is simple : I still haven’t finished it. 🙄
| WHAT I LISTENED TO IN APRIL |
Set at a boarding school, which is one of my favourite settings, Good Girls Lie was a book I was really looking forward to. I enjoyed it for the most part but overall, it left me somewhat disappointed.
| CURRENTLY READING |
Look familiar? 😂
| BOOKS I BOUGHT IN APRIL |
Oh dear. Even the book buying is going downhill. 😳
| WHAT I’VE BEEN WATCHING |
I gave up on Grey’s, which in my most humble opinion, went completely downhill once McSteamy left. One of the reasons he left though, was to work on The Last Ship so naturally that was next on my list. Really enjoying it too.
