Isn’t it nice having April Fool’s Day on the weekend? I have been oblivious to everything and had a lovely day mostly in the beautiful spring weather. I received my Ninja Book Swap from Becki @ The Flutterby Room today too. You can see what I got over on Instagram but I’m really happy with the books and looking forward to trying the tea (it smells gorgeous anyway).

I don’t feel I’ve been reading very fast lately, but we do have bank holidays coming up, and Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is at the end of April, which give me a chance to get caught up.

The Squeaky Bookish Library challenge for April is all about opposites, so I’ll give it a go. I like that this challenge isn’t the usual prompts. A lot of the challenges I see are very geared towards YA and I just look at them and go blank, despite being a part-time YA reader!

I haven’t sorted out last month’s giveaway winner yet, I’ll be onto that shortly. I’m taking a break from the regular giveaway for this month but I do have a few duplicates, including Wintersong and The Wolf Road, which I will run giveaways for soon.

Let’s see what I ticked off my on my challenge lists:


Read a collection of stories by a woman
Paris for One and Other Stories by Jojo Moyes


Visually Impaired Main Character
Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom
Person of Colour on the Cover
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
