April 2020 Monthly Wrap-Up

April 2020 TBR

At the beginning of March I was looking forward to vacation and some rare family time – especially with my oldest in college. Little did I know that a couple weeks later we’d start our journey of having more family time than I ever imagined possible again. So, I’ve been doing my best to focus on appreciating that.

But, I still love my reading, too, and let’s face it, it’s a great escape – especially if you can find the right books! I’m really looking forward to completing my O.W.L.s in April, but I’m looking forward to a lot of other books, too. Here’s what I have planned ~ all very subject to change depending on my moods. LOL! But, I’m a list maker….

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date. Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.
