Hello my lovelies. Welcome to my April 2019 Monthly Wrap Up post.
Sundays are the perfect day for me to sit back and catch up on life – both on and off the blog – so I’ve decided to write a monthly round-up post today and link it up to The Sunday Post, a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme.
The Sunday Post is a chance for us to share news, to recap the past week on our blogs and showcase books and things we have received. To share with you what is coming up on our blogs for the week ahead and don’t forget, this meme is also the perfect opportunity to check out other bloggers and read some great blogs. So, once you’ve read my post, why don’t you hop along to some of the other amazing blogs taking part in this week’s The Sunday Post.
So what have I been up to this month?
We’ve had Easter and a lovely long weekend. The weather started off a bit temperamental but pulled it off in the end with some warmer, sunny days. It’s always nice to have the time to spend these precious moments with my family and catch up with friends.
I’ve been browsing the blogosphere much more this month too and I’ve found lots of lovely new (to me) blogs to follow. It’s keeping me busy and I was worried that I was spending more time on other blogs than I was on my own. However, writing this post has set my mind at ease – I haven’t abandoned you, dear followers, I actually published quite a few posts this month…
- A final update on a completed March Reading Challenge – Cosplay Cuties
- Some interesting posts re-blogged from around the blogosphere – Helpful audiobook tips ~ Helpful tips about ARCs ~ An aspect of reading I hadn’t considered
- My weekly Friday Finds posts –5th April~12th April ~ 19th April ~ 26th April
- And finally lots of book reviews: Dark Alpha’s Claim by Donna Grant ~ Pecan Pies and Dead Guys by Angie Fox ~ Shadows in the Mist by Jeri Westerson ~ Touch of Smoke by Karissa Laurel ~ Hidden Blade by Pippa DaCosta ~ Covet by Felicity Heaton
I’ve been planning what I want to share with you next month, some of my ideas have come to fruition and I’ve added a few posts already to my schedule…
- New Book Releases
- Author interviews and Spotlight posts
- A final updates on the completed April reading challenge
- More weekly Friday Finds posts
- and of course, lots of book reviews!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I take part in the Goodreads Annual Reading Challenge and have also joined in with challenges from the book groups I belong to. I thought that I’d use this post to update you on my progress to date in all the challenges that I’m (foolishly) taking part in…
Vampire Wars Team Spike I’m honoured to be on Team Spike with Alison (team captain) and Stacey. Sadly, Darcetta has left our team 🙁 but we’re happy to have the awesome Elaine join our ranks. Thanks for stepping in Elaine. XxXx
6 Monthly Challenges:
Poker Face – 1st January to 30th June
Good grief! What was I thinking?! Lol!
As you know, I review books on this blog that I’ve bought, as well as ARCs (Advance or Early Reader Copy) that I’ve received from authors or publishers both directly and through NetGalley. (I’ve finally got my NetGalley addiction under control.) But I thought that I’d share with you the ARCs that are still on my TBR list.
These books aren’t being released until June, so I’ve still got plenty of time to read them. *phew* Thanks to the wonderful authors, publishers and NetGalley for the opportunities they give me to read books and feed my reading addiction! 😉
And finally this made me smile; it’s why I publish book reviews and I just had to share it with you.
So, now you’ve read my post, why don’t you hop along to some of the other amazing blogs taking part in this week’s The Sunday Post. If you’re taking part too, don’t forget to leave your comment below with a link to your Sunday Post so I can visit your blog and check out what you’ve been up to.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Bye for now. x
