Monthly Update: April 2014

On my blog I plan on doing monthly updates. These updates will happen at the beginning of every month or at the end of every month and they will include:

  • What I’m currently reading
  • All the books I had read the previous month
  • What I plan on reading this month
  • How I’m doing with my Goodread’s reading challenge
  • A list of books I had bought last month
  • And my TBR (to be read) jar pick

TBR Jar Pick:

The book I picked from my TBR hat was actually Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick. You can see me picking Crescendo from my TBR hat on my Instagram @mybookacademy. I read Hush, Hush sometime last year but I didn’t have Crescendo on my bookshelf yet so I had to give the series a break. After a while though I completely forgot about Hush, Hush so I’m very excited to pick up the books again!

April was a pretty good reading month! Though I will admit I’ve been buying too many books. I mean 12 books in ONE month, crazy! I’ll probably cut down on book buying and wait a while before I go back to the bookstore, which shouldn’t be hard because I don’t exactly live near a bookstore… Oh and yes! I have a TBR jar, well it’s a hat because I didn’t have a jar…but anyways, I always have a hard time picking what book I want to read next so I decided to make a TBR jar to help me when I’m stuck and don’t know what to read. I’m picking one book out of the hat every month because sometimes I actually know what I want to read and don’t want to feel overwhelmed  *cough* City of Heavenly Fire *cough*

Thanks for reading! I hope you also had a good reading month!

Goodbye April. Hello May.

Happy reading fellow bookworms!

Let’s be friends!
