What I Read in April

What I Read in April

I did not read much at ALL this month. Even though I got through 8 books in total which doesn’t seem THAT far off from my goal of 10, many of this month’s reads were short ones (young adult, middle grade, and quick creativity books that were very fast reads!).

2018: A Bookish Year in Review

2018 was a good year for reading! Lots of diversity (thanks to my goal to focus primarily on books written by women and people of color), lots of 5-star reviews (and a few duds, as per usual), lots of library snags and book sale grabs, lots of fun fiction and meaningful memoirs and impactful nonfiction, and just a lot of goodness overall.
