Hey y’all, I’m back with my April wrap up! I’m going to be transparent here. This has been a terrible month for me mentally. It’s shown in my blog, in how I’ve few posts, and how long it’s taken me to respond to comments. Just getting out of bed is hard some days and I’ve just been in a bad place.
However, I ended up reading more than I thought I would. I do have quite a few lowly rated books, but I’m just grateful I’m still reading.
I’ve been watching a lot of ATEEZ videos on YouTube and playing Wylde Flowers on my iPad. If you have Apple Arcade, definitely play Wylde Flowers. It’s so cozy and I’ve already finished it and restarted it from the beginning.
Here are my top songs and artists of the month!
I have been watching Kimi No Todoke on Hulu. I remember reading the manga about halfway through and I needed something cute to watch. It’s cute and I forgot how innocent the two main characters are.
Now to the main reason for this post, the books! I read 24 things in April.

What was up with this April? You’re not alone in feeling down this past month. I did, too. I hope May will be better for you and the funk will lift. It’s no fun. At least you got quite a few books read. I am not surprised that Pavlov book wasn’t your favorite. I enjoyed it, but I wasn’t sure what you would think of it. I’ve only read a couple of her books and they’ve been good for me. What I really love is her series with Willow Aster. It’s more a Meghan Quinn type of humor. I would recommend those (they’re KU), if you like that type of romantic comedy. The first is Wanted Wed or Alive. I thought each book got better and funnier.
Sending hugs and positive thoughts your way for an amazing May!
I will look more into Pavlov’s books because I enjoyed her writing. Have you read Frayed by her?

No, I haven’t read Frayed, but I think I might have it? I can’t remember. I’ve only read this new one and I listened to Legacy. I thought that one was pretty good. And the GD Taylors series with Aster that I ADORED. Like you want to smile a lot, read that series.
You always impress me with the cheer number of books you read!
I still don’t know where I get all the time to read lol!
I am sorry to hear that April was such a hard month for you. March was like that for me, so I definitely understand. I hope May brings better rewards for you! You picked up some great books though I see!
I hope May brings both of us some good reads and feels.
I’m so sorry April was so bad for you, Kayla. 😦 Sending you lots and lots of love and I really hope May is better!
