April Wrap-Up!

monthly wrapup

Hey everyone!  It’s time again for another monthly wrap-up!  April just flew by for me, and I have a feeling that May will, too!  I’ve only got about two weeks left in the semester, and then I’ll be on summer break and I am SO looking forward to it.  This semester of college has been a killer for me, especially in the past month or so.  Because of that, I didn’t get to read or blog quite as much as I would have liked in April.  I’ve got high hopes for May, though, so we’ll see how it goes.

Altogether, I finished 2 books last month.


– The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde (ebook) \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo (ebook) \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Way You Make Me Feel really exceeded all of my expectations.  This book was so sweet, summery, and heartwarming.  I absolutely loved it!


Breakfast at Tiffany’s: A Short Novel and Three Stories by Truman Capote \\ ⭐️⭐️1/2

Just One Day by Gayle Forman \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2



I only bought one book in April, and that was The One Memory of Flora Banks.  It was a signed copy, and on sale at Target; I just couldn’t resist!


This month was a little quieter than March, despite that though, I still managed quite a few posts.

Here’s all the TTT’s I participated in April:


I also participated in a couple of Waiting on Wednesday’s:


I also participated in The Way You Make Me Feel blog tour!  I shared my review, some of my favorite quotes, and a giveaway (which is still open until tomorrow, I believe!)

Lastly, I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon!

That wraps up my April!  Hopefully I’ll get a bit more reading done in May, but overall, I still had a pretty good April, just a busy one.

Let me know how your April went!

Thanks for reading!

  2. I read Maurene’s novel too, and thought it was cuuute! Now I just need to read her “I Believe in a Thing Called Love.” It too sounds and looks really sweet.

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Theresa. 🙂
