The Month That Was… April 2016

+ International Giveaway

Readathon is great for getting caught up with the reading but not so good for review writing. I think I’ll use the bank holiday tomorrow for a big blogging session (although I may get drunk at the pub quiz tonight and spend tomorrow lying around instead, it’s 50/50).

I read some fantastic books last month and I look forward to sharing my thoughts on Laura Lam’s bonkers book, False Hearts, soon. On the personal front, we’re a little bit closer to moving but still don’t have a date. Honestly, buying a house takes so long… but I do feel a little bit less stressed now we have the mortgage offer.

Good news! The monthly giveaway is back, just enter below to win one of the pictured books. It’s open internationally (non-UK winners will get their prize ordered from Wordery, a non-Amazon-owned retailer who offer free international delivery) and you don’t have to follow to enter. But if you do claim extra entries, no cheating or all your entries will be disqualified.

Here’s what made it onto the blog…
