Monthly TBR/Wrap-up

Hi book nerds! Somehow April disappeared and it is now May 1st. I still can’t believe how fast this year is going. I feel like I’m never going to catch up. April was a highly stressful and busy month for me. There were a lot of things that were still in transition for me but I do see a little light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve managed to sit down and organize my thoughts to actually plan some things out in my bujo so I feel a little less of a mess. That’s a start, right?

Let’s dig into the April wrap-up and then we can go into some of my plans for May.

April 2018

Books Read: 17

I participated in two month long reading challenges this month, Spring Into Horror and the O.W.L.S. Readathon. My wrap-up posts for both readathons will be going up here on the blog this week.

DW 2019 Project Total: $64.00

I am happy that for the most part I read books that I already own. Now if I could just stick to my quarterly TBRs then I could give myself bonus money. That didn’t really happen this month but there’s always May.

So what are my reading plans looking like for May? I haven’t really talked about it much here or on the channel but I have set a personal goal to read for at least 30 minutes everyday. I’ve missed a couple of days here and there, but for the most part I’m sticking with it. I’m going to continue this goal for May. I’m hoping if I successfully make this a daily habit that I can make a dent in my TBR.
Speaking of TBRs, I will be trying to get some more of my Spring TBR completed. I only managed to check off one of my Spring TBR books in April. I will be starting my Summer TBR in June so I need to try and complete as many off the list as possible this month. If you want to check out my Spring TBR you can watch the video below.


I am also co-hosting round 4 of BorrowAthon this month. You can check out my announcement video below for more information. I will have a separate TBR for BorrowAthon going up on the channel closer to the week of the readathon.


As for the channel and blog, I’ve been outlining and planning things. I did some brainstorming for blog and video ideas. Since things have settle down a bit at home I’m planning on going back to my filming and blogging routine. That means I will actually have content going up this month. What? I know, I’m excited too.


I went ahead and extended the giveaway from April. I didn’t have time to promote it so I wanted to allow a bit more time for everyone to enter if interested. Check out the giveaway here.

That’s it for my April wrap-up and May plans. Let me know down in the comments what your reading plans are for May. Will you be joining us for round 4 of BorrowAthon?  If you did a TBR post I’d love to check it out so please leave a link.

As always keep on reading and stay book nerdy my friends!

  1. I hadn’t heard of BorrowAthon before, but it sounds amazing. I’m going to go check it out, but I’m definitely in 🙂 can’t wait! And great video 🙂 I’d be way, way too scared to do videos and talk!

      Oh my gosh yes! I had to practice a lot to get comfortable talking to a camera. Even after 2 years it still feels weird sometimes.
