Ah, April... The one that will be remembered as The Month In The House.
The month of total lockdown.
The month of not going into offices, schools, shops, visiting family - nothing.
The month of nothing.
Or, it could be forever known as the month of binging watching Disney Plus, of Joe Wicks PE, of baking and staying safe.
Yeah, I like the second option better. It's much less depressing.
Plus, lots of reading was done!
In April, I read 16 books!
Four of them were kid's books but since I spent the beginning of the month in a Coronavirus induced slump, I'm happy dancing right now!
My favourite book of the month is super hard to choose but I'd say probably How To Dance An Undead Waltz.
My least favourite read was one of the kid's books - Pups On The Run.
I'm pretty happy with the progress I'm making towards this year's reading challenges but my audiobook challenge took a massive hit due to working from home... I usually listen while commuting. 😔
Audiobook Challenge is at 4/20
New Release Challenge is at 15/30
An increase of 7 this month! Needless to say, I'm beasting this challenge this year.
Nine more books off the backlist last month! I'm happy with that.
Retellings Challenge 1/10
Bookish Resolution - Shut Up & Read It 2/16
Still haven't got to any of those super old NetGalley books.
Bookish Resolution - Nuke Netgalley (pt.2) 3/21
Nothing cleared off this batch of review reads either... But so many added.
*hangs head in shame*
Bookish Resolution - Read The Series 1/12
I'm thinking 12 series was a bit ambitious... Or maybe naming the series was the ambitious part for I've read two series that aren't on my targeted list in the past 6 weeks... Meh.
Bookish Discussion Challenge 2/10
One more discussion posted!
This is my most relaxed challenge as I just wanted to start posting the odd discussion on the blog so anything between 1-10 made me happy and now I have two so, yeay!
I posted 17 blog posts in April.
I think my favourite was the Book Titles That Would Make Good Band Names post.
That's it from me. How was your April?
