Month in Review: April
April has came and went and I am so ready for hopefully some nicer weather in May! Bring on the sunshine :D This month was a whirlwind of some INCREDIBLE books, specifically with male protagonists, so I was on a role this month:
What I Read:
Dorothy Must Die by: Danielle Paige- 4/5 stars
The Outsiders by: S.E. Hinton- 5/5 stars
Devil and the Bluebird by: Jennifer Mason-Black- 3/5 stars
Frayed by: Kara Terzis- 4/5 stars
Cinder by: Marissa Meyer- 4/5 stars
The Raven Boys by: Maggie Steifvater- 4/5 stars
The Dream Thieves by: Maggie Steifvater- 5/5 stars
Favourite book: A toss between The Dream Thieves and The Outsider's. Both of these books were magnificently crafted, that I honestly couldn't pick one over the other!
What I Blogged:
This month was the month of Conversations in which the fantastic meme hosted by Geraldine and Joan launched! The most recent Conversation, 15 Year Old's and 50 Shades of Gray, was my favourite post this month as I had so much to talk about!
I also participated in Nefarious Tales, a week-long Villain Blog Tour hosted by Mishma! It was so fun to talk about all things evil and the twitter chat was great as well! I talked about Harry Potter Villains.
Favourite Blog Posts of the Month:
Geraldine asks if 15 year olds are too young to be reading 50 Shades
Cee discusses women and book prizes
Megan shares her amazing support system
Annika randomly rambles about her similarities to the characters she reads
Mishma hosted a villain week blog tour!
Blogger of the Month:
This month I'm highlighting a non-bookish blog to switch things up! My cousin Megan, who also graciously designed my blog header, has a wonderful lifestyle and mental health-driven blog in which she shares inspiring posts and personal stories. Most of her posts are related towards strengthening mental health, and she puts such heart into her posts! So, if you're looking for a great lifestyle blog, check out Megan @ Megan Inness!
Personal Stuff of the Month:
I WON A WRITING CONTEST! Technically, I got in third place, but it was a huge accomplishment for me and I'm so proud that I got this far. I even won a giftcard to Chapters Indigo! Book shopping, here I come.
The physical copy of my book finally arrived! The book I wrote for NaNoWriMo finally came and it was so surreal! I'll cherish it forever.
I'm still in school, I still hate math, but hey, what can you really do? TWO MORE MONTHS!
That was my April! How was yours?
