Monthly Wrap Up | April 2019

screenshot 2019-01-20 10.30.16

April was a rather slow reading month for me, and while I did get through all the new releases I had marked on my TBR, I didn’t really have a chance to finish as many backlist titles as I would have liked. May is looking up however, with tons of amazing books set to be released over the next couple of weeks, it’s going to be a busy month! Keep an eye out for more ARC reviews as well, coming soon!

And as promised, here are my reading challenge updates:
1. Beat the Backlist: This month, I read 3 books from my backlist, finally catching up on two series just in time for the final book’s release.
2. Year of Epic Reads:

  • Challenge of the Month: CURE YOUR WANDERLUST!
    We want you to stay grounded, but still branch out by reading a book that cures your wanderlust! Let the pages take you away to a land either real or fictional that you’d absolutely love to go to. There’s nothing wrong with a little escapism, right? It’s a tough world out there.
    Chosen Book: Legendary – Stephanie Garber
    It’s like this month’s theme was made for me, because I’ve been dying to travel for a long time but couldn’t because of my hectic university schedule. But now that that’s all done, I have every intention of doing so! That aside though, I decided to stick with a fictional choice for this month’s prompt, returning to the magical world of Caraval and finally catching up on the series, just in time for the last book, Finale, to be released next week!
    Check out my full review here!
