Monthly Wrap Up | April 2022

I can’t believe it’s May already! It certainly doesn’t feel like summer here in Canada, but hopefully there’s some nicer weather around the corner. April was a somewhat difficult month for me in terms of both reading and blogging as a more hectic work schedule drastically reduced both the time and motivation to pick up a book or write a review so I’m a little disappointed in not the number but rather which books I did read as there were several major titles on my TBR that I really wanted to get to. It’s a new month however, and I have my fingers crossed that it will be a much better one too! Here are the books I read in April!
