BOOK HAUL

I bought and received several new books in April!

First of all, a big thank you to the publisher and author for sending me a copy of Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold by Iain Reading!IMG_0399

I also won a copy of The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson from a contest hosted by Penguin Teen!

MISCELLANEOUS

This past Saturday, I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon!  I had a really great time, and ended up really reading a lot!  I’m really glad I decided to participate this time around, and plan on participating in the next one (which is Oct. 21, just FYI!).

That wraps up April!  It was still a slow reading and blogging month, but it’s starting to pick up the pace (especially compared to February’s wrap up 🙈).

Thanks for reading!

      • I did too! It was so much fun! 😄I read Since You’ve Been Gone (and loved that one, too), but I haven’t read her other books yet! I agree, they make the perfect summer read. 😍
