Repost for @TheAromaofBooks

Well friends, there is only a week left of March! What even! I'm not going to lie, I've been way more into playing Stardew Valley this week than reading, so maybe a new list is what I need to spice things back up 😂 If you're interested in spinning along for April, it's time to think about your lists. Looking forward to seeing what everyone is hoping to read!!

TheAromaofBooks Thank you for the repost!! 2mo

April wrap up report: I read 10 books (one book is not in the stack because it was the #CBBC book). No bingos but I read #BookSpin and #DoubleSpin books. No bingo either for #ISpyBingo I only need to read 2 books by Ruth Ware: snowflakes and the new release Zero Days.
Best book this month: The Home-maker
Liked very much: Joyland, Hercule Poirot‘s Christmas, Memphis and Queen‘s Shadow.

Bluebird Great list! I‘ll be interested to hear what you think of the Shipman book. I first heard of him from my recent read of Madness of Crowds and became intrigued. I read quite a bit on the web and was planning to look for a book about him. 14mo
EadieB @Bluebird The book is on hoopla and is only 31 pages. I heard about him from Andrew when he commented about a true crime book I was reading. He also mentioned about the other book I‘m going to read Fred and Rose. They are more interesting than Shipman and their book is on Hoopla too. 14mo
Bluebird Thanks @Eadie! I‘ll see if my Hoopla library has them 14mo

April 2021 wrap up:
11 books including: #BookSpin #DoubleSpin with a bingo
#Fairytalereadingchallenge #Readingwithmaja
#Aussie and some books from previous readathons were read late. I just want to finish books selected in those activities to reduce my old tbr list.
Some books were not my favorites but not reject here. They were books I wanted to read but I discovered that they didn‘t work for me.

Here‘s what I read in April. All of these books are ARCs that I won from Goodreads giveaways. The only book I read physically was Cygnet but it was a DNF for me. I only read the first 60 pages and I wasn‘t interested enough to continue reading it. I listened to the other books on audio. I‘m happy with the amount of books I read but I‘m disappointed because I only liked 1 book that I read.
