April Wrap Up

April was another decent reading month for me. *tralaalaaa, yes I’m very consistent, cuz I have read 4 books every month since January*

    Let’s just jump into the wrap-up, shall weee? 


    *linked to my goodreads reviews*


      1. Book Review: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
      2. Book Review:The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon 
      3. Book Review: Sita’s Sister by Kavita KanΓ©

      I had a satisfying month of blogging in April! Plus, I introduced a new feature on here! *Anj’s Ramblings* Yay! I’m so darn happy because this feature will let me share things with y’all that I don’t usually talk about (that is: things I’m passionate about, things that irk me, stories about myself and lots of other stuff). That aside, WE HIT 100 FOLLOWERS THIS MONTH! As part of the EXPECTO PAAPAARTAY, I have a thank you post up, in which you can comment your questions and I’ll give you the answers in a blogpost! CLICK HERE TO ASK YOUR QUESTIONS *-*

       Blogposts posted this month:

        As I am a Litszomaniac, I love listening to music. *a lot* So, here are the top 5 songs I listened to, on repeat, this month:

        • ALEXANDER HAMILTON by Hamilton (ya heard right. I’m just getting into their stuff and I swear it’s heavenly)
        • BLOOD, SWEAT, TEARS by Harper. (I discovered this last year and I loved it. So, an old favourite back from the dead, I guess? )
        • DESPERADO by Rihanna (hear me out, you guys. This song will make you feel badass. I swear)
        • PHIR BHI TUMKO CHAHUNGA by Arijit Singh (God. Bless. Arijit. Singh. I have no interest whatsoever in reading any of Chetan Bhagat’s books or watching the adaptations, but this song from ‘Half Girlfriend’ is simply mesmerising ahh)
        • KUTHU FIRE by Vidya Iyer (yup. I’m late)

        Diverse books read: 1

        Readathon Participated: Well, in the Tome Topple readathon, I didn’t even start a tome. Forget reading the whole thing. Plus, I felt lazy and I backed out of the Dewey’s 24 hour Readathon. I had achieved success in the readathon last year, but this year, not so much. Riya (a Nick name by yours truly) and I had a chat about it yesterday and yeah Riya, I can see you grinning πŸ˜‚


        I don’t have a fixed TBR for this month, but, I didn’t end up finishing a lot of books which were in my TBR for last month, so, I’m hoping that I get to them this month. 

        Ah it’s coming out on May 2, what perfect timing from Anj’s side *she read The Hidden Oracle in April*

        Also, look at this thing I designed! NOTHING TO BRAG ABOUT, BUT YEAH, IM TRYING TO WORK OUT MY BUTTON! Hoping to set that up soon! 

        THAT’S A WRAP! Hope you guys liked reading this post! 

        Until Next Time,

        1. SO I SAW HAMILTON AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERED. Well except for RR and The Dark Prophecy like AAGGHHH CHILDHOOD AUTHOR THAT I’M TOO BROKE TO BUY BOOKS FROM. And yayayay for 100 followers!!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ I’ll be sure to stop by and ask a few questions. πŸ˜‰ And AAAGAGHGH THAT BUTTON IS SO PRETTY AND AESTHETIC HOW


          1. OMG IKR. I need to hurry up and listen to all the tracks soon. AND SAMEEE I’M TOO BROKE TO BE PRE-ORDERING OR EVEN BUYING ONE OF HIS BOOKS #lowkeywanna And thank you so much, May! That took me hours to create! (Finally, I get a praise from the aesthetic queen herself) πŸ’›

            1. I’ve listened to the whole soundtrack (in one day) three times before, and it’s… magical. Nothing like that feeling. *gets crazed look in eyes* I NEED TO DO IT AGAIN. And sigh my library is so slow at getting new releases and it’ll be freakin December by the time I catch up on all the great releases. *cries* BUT HOW. IT’S… SO AESTHETIC.


        2. Gosh, how did you know I was grinning? Thanks so so so much for the mention XD i really want to read The Bone Season after your review, and I just so agree with you about The Vile Village, can’t wait for you to read more of that series. I’ve read all of them apart from book 13, the last and THE CLIFFHANGERS ARE KILLING ME. Lemony Snicket is truly awesome! OOH, love the button – it’s gorgeous!


            1. Haha, yeah, and you made me smile even wider when I read that you knew I was grinning πŸ˜€ I know. It would have made sese to just get the box set, but I decided to collect each book 1 by 1 and the 13th is missing. #wow


            2. Aren’t all bookworms broke? I don’t understand how people have massive hauls, my hauls are like max 6 books πŸ˜€ Libraries are the best but the worst because they have FREE books but then sometimes they don’t have the boo you’re looking for. #bookworms sturggles


        3. I love “Alexander Hamilton”! I’ve been listening to “Welcome to Oblivion” by Madina Lake, “Na Na Na” by MCR, and “All Signs Point to Lauderdale” by A Day to Remember. ❀

          All the Light We Cannot See is a "maybe" read for me, so I look forward to hearing your thoughts! I hope to get to The Thief by Stephanie Landsem, Mexico City Blues by Jack Kerouac, and Commonwealth by Ann Patchett in May πŸ™‚

        4. Oh man, that button is AWESOME. I wish I could’ve made a better button but now I just can’t make my bitter button better. *get that one?*
          Plus, congrats on 100! Trust me, YOU DESERVE IT.


        5. Ahhh what a lovely wrap up! I don’t even know where to start πŸ˜€
          Ok, first of all that little button thingy is ADORABLE! I am currently working on new graphics for my blog and I WISH mine looked like yours!!!
          Also, the Hamilton soundtrack/mixtape….. oh my – I am so in love 😍
          And yay for reading The Bone Season! It was on my TBR this month but I never stick to it anyway lol so I didn’t read it! And I see those Rick Riordan books EVERYWHERE and I just really need to get around to read them!!!!
          Again, what a lovely post ANJ ❀️❀️


          1. OH GOSH! THAT’S A LOT OF PRAISE, JACKIE!! And that button has become a superstar in just 24 hours. Siriusly. Ah the struggles for having beautiful graphics. I’ve been very indecisive on which one to pick *right from the theme* every now and then. AND YAAS I’M GOING TO BE MARATHONING ALL OF HAMILTON’S SONG SOON!

            Hey, trust me, Uncle Rick is the DA best. You need to pick one of his books sooooon. ALSO PICK UP THE BONE SEASON. PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR SPRINKLES.

            1. Siriusly hahaha why have I never seen that before πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
              I always have this pretty idea for a graphic in my head and when I try to create it……. um, let’s just say it never turns out the way I imagined :’)
              ALRIGHT ALRIGHT I WILL!!!! Who can say no to sugar sprinkles?! πŸ˜›

        7. CONGRATS ON THE FOLLOWER MILESTONE!!πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ And ahh I love Apollo so much! I totally adored that sequel, so I hope you like it too. And omg I love Lemony Snicket’s books so much ahhhh. I was rereading them for the show but then stopped. I should keep going. πŸ˜‚ They were absolutely my childhood favourites, eeep.
          I hope you have a good May!


          1. *PTERODACTYL SCREAMING THAT CAN BE HEARD FOR MILES* Gosh. THE QUEEN HAS COMMENTED ON ONE OF MY POSTS. GOSH. HOLY HEPHAESTUS PLEASE HELP ME. Ah Cait, I’m so happy right now. I LOVE YOUR BLOG it’s so beautiful and pretty and you’re such a sweet person too. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜­β€ *happy tears flowing*


        8. So, I’m really bad at keeping track of what other bloggers are writing. I saw this post only now, bad me.πŸ™ˆ

          I really need to read All the Light We Cannot See too! All these ARCs take up too much time and there’s no time left to read the existing good books!πŸ˜“
