April Wrap Up

This was one of those hectic months where i thought i wasn’t going to get any reading in at all but i ended up at my monthly average anyways. Talk about a busy month though, with the big move, applying for jobs and finding a new schedule i have been having trouble keeping up with all my posts lately. Hopefully, by mid-may, i will be all settled in and back to normal. I love this community and i don’t want to take time away from it, just bear with me in my catch up!

Probably the most exciting news for me is i have received my first ever physical ARC. I was so ecstatic when it came in the mail, i just couldn’t believe it!! The book is Heart of Thorns and its one that i have had my eye on for a while now. It sounds so incredibly cool, you guys should totally go check it out.

    I have been seeing the Jack the Ripper series everywhere! I think I’m going to have to break down and read them, seeing as everyone seems to love them so much 🙂
