April 2022 Reading Wrap-Up

Another month in the books and April is firmly upon us. March had its highs and lows, but overall I’m pleased with it. I was down a bit after injuring my back. Fortunately that didn’t last too long. We got our chickens moved into a new coop. We planted some vegetables. We got a new mower, tiller, and a new dryer. And I have to mention that I also started watching the beloved Bridgertons in March, too.

I didn’t use a TBR for March. I was just in the mood to mood read, and I guess it shows that I was enjoying it because I read a total of 30 books. Now granted, I did get a lot of extra reading in while laid up with my back injury. Let’s see what I got read ~
