Hello everyone! How has April been for you? I've had a very busy and emotional month - especially towards the end - but I'm not going to go into much detail about it because I still get a bit teary whenever I think about it. But I've still had a fabulous month. I had my first experience of Jury Duty (which I got dismissed from, woo!) and I had a night out with the girls from one of the libraries I work in which was hilarious - and also pretty teary.
Bookwise, in April I read 11 books - 2 of which were re-reads - and I had a fantastic reading month. I didn't rate a book lower than 4* in April which I'm extremely pleased with. I read some pretty great books.
My favourite book of the month by far had to be Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I fell in love with Simon's story and his relationship with Blue. It was beautifully written and had one of the most adorable romances ever. Alberalli also dealt with some more serious issues and she did a fantastic job. I'll be recommending this book for the rest of the year now.
So in May I'll be celebrating my 22nd birthday and I'll also be off on holiday to Rome with my fiancé on Wednesday! We decided to treat ourselves for our birthdays since we're only a few days apart and I just can't wait! I'll also be taking part in Bout of Books the day after I get back from Rome, which I'm really looking forward to.
So, that was my April wrap up!
What was the best book you read in April and what are you dying to read in May?
