April was a stressful month for me. I think it showed because the only thing I blogged was my March Wrap Up. So I wanted to do something that made me excited to blog again! Thus this post. I’ll still have a wrap up go live so you can know all about my month bookish-wise.
March was a pretty wonderful month. I went to visit friends from college and also to visit my grandparents in Alabama. I read three books but wrote a lot of words for my own story.
The start of my year has been especially thrilling thanks to the introduction of Mystery Thrillers to my reading regimen. I have always been drawn to mystery stories but I usually only read fantasy stories that contained mysteries.
This Top Ten Tuesday topic was surprisingly difficult. Every book that I read that is not set in my surroundings is usually a fantasy book set in a made-up place. I know that there are lots of YA Contemporary Fiction books set in other countries but I don’t usually read those. I know that there are good ones but I feel like a lot of them have spoiled main characters that don’t want to be where they are and I get annoyed. These are the the books that I’ve either read or am interested in reading that are set in another country.
Instead of the actual prompt for this Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) which was “Top ten books on your spring TBR” I decided to make a post all about the spring aesthetics. These are the top ten newer books that look like spring.
This post is inspired by my recent trip to Home Depot. I went with my friends to look at plants when our nursery of choice was closed for the day. I used to work at Home Depot in the garden department and that time made me very interested in plants. Just being there made me very excited for spring and summer! I loved gardening last year and this year I’ll be even more prepared and I’ll also have twice as much space to plant. So these are all the plants I think I’ll definitely be able to grow.
These are all the fantasy reads that I have read so far this year. This includes Red Queen, The Cruel Prince, Strange the Dreamer, Darkfever, The Winner’s Kiss, and The Bear and the Nightingale.
