April Wrapup




I seriously almost considered not posting a wrapup this month. I only read two books.*hangs head in shame* I did, however, get the basement apartment finished, found renters and began the process of working on the yard. See! I have a good reason for not reading very much. Anywho, here you go.

The Princess Guide to Life by Rosie Blythe
A self help that sounded froofy but ended up having some depth to it. I liked it




The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
Way too much set up and nothingness for a total let down of an ending. Yuck!




Favorite of the month. I guess The Princess Guide to life, though I didn't LOVE it. Least favorite was obviously the Golem and the Jinni.

Plans for May

I definitely want to read more. I've got Dune to finish for book club and the Read Along. Cress to finish for fun. I got Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen on a whim at the Library and need to get it read and returned, as well.

Also I shall be working more on the yard. It went from looking like this...


To this....



:( Way too much neglect. So I'm doing a complete overhaul. One day I'll post pictures of it finished.
Have a great May everyone!

  1. Don't worry, I didn't read much this month either! Sorry you haven't read any great books recently though, The Golem and the Jinni sounds like it was an effort to get through! Hopefully May will be better for you! (I really liked Cress, so hope you enjoy that).

    1. I'm loving Cress so May should be a much better month.

  2. Surprised you managed to finish two books with everything else on your plate! Renovations are a pain, but so worth it once they're done. And congrats on finding new renters so quickly! Good luck with updating your yard!

  4. Renovations... that's how I'll be spending my summer. I bet it's a great feeling to have one project done (and some renters too). I can't wait to see what the outside is going to look like!

    1. Yes. It's been so nice to see the work done and renters in. I can't wait for the backyard to be done.

  5. You have a pool?! I'm so jealous!!! I want a pool. And, yeah, renovations suck. You're doing a great job, though.
