Monthly Wrap-Up (April 2018)

Hey … hey … guys …. April is over today and tomorrow … IT’S GONNA BE MAY! I’m sorry. I had to. I’ve never used that GIF before, or done that, so I think that you shouldn’t judge me too harshly. Hahaha. Anyway … April is dead and gone, dead and gone. No, apparently I’m not stopping. Okay, for real though, here is what’s happened on the blog, on Goodreads, and everywhere else in the past month:


The book reviews and other blog posts which I’ve posted in April!
