April18WU

Happy May bookworms!

Even though we are only 3 days into the month of May, things are already looking up from April.  After 6 LONG months of a hard winter, warmer weather seems to have arrive in Ohio.  Time to break out the shorts & t-shirts and put away the coats & sweaters.

April was an off month for me.  I definitely didn’t get as much accomplished as I had hoped, both in regards to reading & blogging.  Actually, April was my smallest reading month thus far this year.  I read a total of 7 books, which is a tad under my average of 10 books per month.  Despite not having a big quantity reading month, I did have a good quality reading month.  I even handed out four 5-star ratings!  If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I am not one to hand out 5-star ratings lightly.

Which books received the coveted 5-star rating? Read on to find out…

Bookish Weekly Wrap-Up: 4/9 – 4/22/18

Hello bookworms!

I know I am super late to get this post out, but this is pretty much the first time I’ve sat down all weekend.   Yesterday we spent our day at the lacrosse fields for my son’s tournament, and today we took advantage of the nice weather to get some yard work done.  It seems that spring has finally decided to show up here in Ohio… better late than never I guess 🙂

Books I Read for #WomensHistoryMonth 2018

WomensHistoryMonth18

March was #WomensHistoryMonth here in the United States.  What is Women’s History Month?  Basically, it’s a month set aside to honor women & their contributions throughout history.  Much like what I did for #BlackHistoryMonth2018, I wanted to try and pick up a few books that centered around women’s history & women’s issues…

Bookish Weekly Wrap-Up: 4/2 – 4/8/18

Hello & happy Monday bookworms!

I typically try and get my weekly wrap-up posts up on Sundays, but here Monday is already.  The weather here in Ohio is really starting to get me down.  Last week there was snow, flooding, high winds, tornados, more snow… The fact that it is April 9th and I am still scraping snow off my car in the morning is straight bullshit.  It seems as if April is the new March around here.  I’m ready for some SPRING weather!

I finally got to do some blog hopping last week, but since I’m so behind on everyone’s blogs, it is taking a while.  If I haven’t made it to your blog, fear not!  I will be catching up with everyone this week for sure 🙂

Anyways, let’s see what I did get accomplished last week…

Goodbye March & hello April!

April is such an awesome month, don’t you think?  I mean, I guess I am a little bias since it is my birth month and all.  I will be turning 29 for the 3rd year in a row, and I must say 29 still feels great 🙂

Anyways!  Let’s see what I read & accomplished in March…
