March Wrap Up & April TBR

wrapuptbr

Hi guys!!

Last month I managed to only read 11 books compared to more books that I read in January and February, but I did manage to find another favourite author, so all is good πŸ™‚ As for the TBR that I set earlier last month, I think I set a goal too high without taking into account the time that I need to read. Furthermore, sinceΒ I discovered Sarah Addison Allen, I wanted to read more of her stories when I only had one of her books in my TBR but I ended up reading three of her books.Β I think I also need to up my game in reading new releases that are not ARCs. I have a lot of new releases that I wanted to read but I can’t because I have to give priorities to other books. Hopefully in April I’ll be able to read more of that.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s my wrap up:

5 stars Books

First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen | Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen | The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen | Dear Thing by Julie Cohen | The Hearts We Mend by Kathryn Springer (my review)

4 stars Books

That’s What Friends Are For by Marcie Steele (my review) | From Here to Home by Marie Bostwick (my review) | The Rejected Writers’ Book Club by Suzanne Kelman (my review)

3 stars Books

The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble | Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger | How to Get Hitched in Ten Days by Samantha Tonge

As for my TBR, currently, I have 14 books in my list. Most of them are e-ARCs, but some are books that has been in my collection for so long. I am also participating in a couple of reading challenges, so hopefully that might help πŸ™‚

1st Reading Challenge: April 25th Challenge at Aussie Readers Group

I am not an Aussie but I joined the group mostly because I like the challenges they posted and their April challenge is a particularly good one as it is based on April 25th, which is ANZAC day. So for this month, they set the number 25 for 5 categories (title, author, average rating, date added and random), so what you have to do is just go through your GR list and pick the 25th book in the chosen category. I only decided to do 3 out of the 5 challenges, so here’s mine:

#1. Sort by Title – 25th – Going It Alone by Clare Dowling
#2. Author – 25th – Babies in Waiting by Rosie Fiore
#3. Date Added – 25th – Bordeaux Housewives by Daisy Waugh

2nd Reading Challenge: April Challenge at Romance Readers Reading Challenges

This is another group in Goodreads that posts cool challenges monthly. They have a long list of 10 challenges that you can do for the monthly challenges and there are also other challenges that you can participate in. Definitely worth checking out!

1. ‘A’ is for April (read a book from author whose first/last name starts from A): The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
5. April 4 – School Librarian Day (books that you borrowed): Flora’s Lot by Katie Fforde
9. April 23 – Take a Chance Day (authors that are new to you): Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher

Moving on along with the rest of the TBR, these are the two books that I need to read because they’re borrowed.
Open House by Jill Mansell | The Simple Rules of Love by Amanda Brookfield

What have you read last month? And what’s in your TBR this month? Have you read any of the books I mentioned in this post?

Anyway, have a good weekend guys! I’m off to have dinner with the family πŸ™‚

  2. I really enjoyed reading your March Wrap-Up post – there are some fab-sounding books on here that I’m definitely going to be adding to my wishlist! πŸ™‚ I love Garden Spells, it’s one of my favourite books! I’ve yet to read First Frost but seeing you give both books 5 stars makes me think I should pick it up soon now I know it is as good as the previous book. πŸ™‚
