Book wise, April had me showered in awesome reads ! I was able to knock out four reviews. I may have been able to squeeze out another one but April almost whacked me down a few times. So yes, April on a personal level has been hectic. Many trips to the clinic with the kids and a basement full of water. This lead to major excavation work around the house. It’s a headache but at least I have my books to retreat into when things get crazy.
Here is a recap of the books I’ve reviewed this April :
The Fall of Lisa Bellow by Suzan Perabo
Beyond the Wild River by Sarah Maine
Beartown by Fredrik Backman
The Hell of it All by Bob Kroll
I’m currently reading Beneath the Wake by Ross Pennie published by ECW press. Oh, and before I forget – I’ve decided to participate in Bout of Books. Last I checked, there were 112 of us bibliophiles signed up. It’s my first time participating, but I’m liking that it is low stress ! This is the official blurb in case you want to give it a try :
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
I also saw this real nice Instagram hashtag : #belovedbooksproject, showcasing our beloved, broken, worn and much used books ! Here are a few of my shots in case you missed them on Instagram. As always, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read me.
