April Wrap Up!

phonto-30

Ya girl forgot that April was ending. Oops. Let’s go wrap this month up.

Books I’ve Finished

I read 9 books. Which is all right for me, I guess – I really wish I read more, especially because I was off school for most of the month and I’m drowning in ARCs.

Book Haul

I got all my books in one fell swoop, and I made a post about it here. I’ve been fairly good when it comes to not purchasing any more new books? I’m on a Ban, I say, though I might (probably will definitely) buy the Six of Crows collector’s edition if I see it while I’m in the UK.

Posts I Loved

Not Books

  • I wrote a post for The Mighty about how non-autistic folks should listen to autistic people. I’m generally happy with how it’s been received, except for the autism parents who feel it’s necessary to start screeching about how their autistic kid is ruining their lives. Miss me with that ableism sh*t.
  • I am so into Game of Thrones right now. Sansa Stark for the Iron Throne, MY queen of the Seven Kingdoms. 
  • I haven’t seen any movies, but I am pumped for Detective Pikachu (but probably won’t be able to see it until June).
  • I’m leaving for Ireland on Wednesday! and I’m going to be abroad for a whole month! This is the longest I’ll have been away from home, and alone at that, so I’m quite nervous about the whole thing, but I’m just as excited to hit the ground running and start sightseeing. I might do travel posts, since I’m visiting, uhhh, 7 cities across the UK and Ireland this month.

So that about sums it up! Now I’m going to pack and freak out about my huge to-do list before I leave.

  1. Looks like I pretty good reading month! I’ve heard nothing but good things about Descendent of the Crane. And Dread Nation was one of my fave books of last year! 😀 Hope your May is wonderful, and WOW, have fun in Ireland!!!

    1. Thank you!! Descendant of the Crane is SO good. I also loved Dread Nation a lot – definitely one of the most interesting books I’ve read all year! I hope your May is great too!

  2. You should definitely do some travel posts! You could take photos of landmarks/landscapes and what books they remind you of or what books you imagine to be set there if they were made into a movie! What cities are you going to in the UK?

    1. Yeah, I might do that; Ireland is home to a lot of classic literature, which is pretty exciting. I’m going to Belfast, Cork, Dublin, London, and Edinburgh, and a few other stops in between probably, which should be fun 🙂

      1. Yeah that’s true! And also a lot of GoT is filmed in Ireland so that’d be cool to see! And ooooh sounds so fun, hope you have a good time☺️

        1. Thanks! I hope I get to visit some of the sites GoT was filmed, if I do I’ll definitely show it off lol

  3. Oh my goodness, that is so sweet! Thank you for the shout out! You had a fantastic reading month, lots that I either have read and enjoyed or are on my TBR. Only one that was a disappointment for me on your list was Pride sadly. I’m curious as to your thoughts on it, since your review is right in the middle!

    1. No problem!! Yeah, I was disappointed by Pride as well, I wanted so much more out of it than I got 😦

  4. Looks like you read a couple of great books! I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Girls of Paper and Fire, but I’ve yet to add it to my TBR. Maybe I should fix that. I hope you have a great time in Ireland!

    1. Thank you! You should definitely fix that, GoPaF is SO good 😉

  5. Thank you so much for including my post! I’m glad you had such a good reading month and managed to give some great ratings. I hope you have fun in Ireland and wish you the best of luck when you’re abroad ❤
