April Reading Wrap-Up

April got away from me. I blame the weather, throwing things off. I don't know how things were in your neck of the woods but the month started with 80 degree sunny days and has ended with just rain, rain, cool, rain. I don't have a good reason why this would make April go any faster, but just go with it.

This was a fun bookish month for me! I went to 2 book signings that I may have mentioned once or twice on here. I joined Alice's The Woman in White readalong which was super fun and I will be playing along again. And I read another challenge book, that same The Woman in White, for Ben's Smooth Criminals challenge.

Stats time!

Really need to work on reading stuff by non-white people. This is getting extra sad. Also I read a lot less than I thought. Or rather, I finished less than I thought. I just finished a book yesterday and I'm more than 1/2 way through Sacre Bleu which I've been reading for awhile but because it's a huge hardback book I haven't brought it on my commute because I like my back and would prefer not to break it.
