Due to being in lockdown, I’ve turned to books as a way to escape. In this post, I discuss each book in April that I read as well as my brief thoughts about them. Overall, I had quite a good reading month. Not just in terms of number of books read but I read a couple new favorites. Keep reading to find out what I read the past month.
Booktube is a great space to hear other book lovers gush about their favorite books or explain why they didn’t enjoy certain ones. Personally, I enjoy watching booktube to get recommendations on books and to hear thoughts on books I want to read. Of course, what Booktuber channels you enjoy will greatly depend on the kind of books you like to read. For example, some channels have high quality videos but are focused on romance or YA contemporary novels – genres I’m not into.

March was a hectic month to say the least. But with all the stress that came in March, I did often use books as a means to escape and distract. Perhaps too much. At times I was juggling four and five books at a time! So, here are all the books I finished in March and my non-spoiler thoughts on them.
February is the shortest month of the year and I had several days where I didn’t read a word. So I expected numbers wise for it not to be a successful month. However, as it turned out, I read more than I did in January. I didn’t love many of the books I read in February, but that’s all part of the reading process. So if you’re curious to know which books I read in February and what I thought of them, keep reading.
In the latter half of 2019 I reignited my love for reading. Especially during the summer, I read a lot more books than I had in the past couple of years. However, I didn’t end the year as strong. So, in January I committed to reading/listening to more books and get into reading again. Thus, if you are interested in reading about what I read in January 2020, continue reading. Don’t worry, no spoilers!
When tackling reading this month I had one goal in mind: finish all or most of my unread physical books before I move. Gearing up to move abroad is stressful, especially for an overpacker like me. I knew I didn’t want a bunch of books weighing down my suitcases or taking up valuable space. Thus, I tried to read as much as I could and did not hesitate to DNF (did-not-finish) a book I wasn’t enjoying. Want to know about the books in August I read (or didn’t) this month? Continue reading.
June was an awesome reading month for me. I listened to some audiobooks and read awesome books physically. July started off a touch slower and at one point I didn’t know if I’d even read two books for the month. Glad to say I did pass that point and while I didn’t check out an amazing number off books for the month of July, I still consider it a success. If you’d like to know what I read as well as a small, spoiler-free review of the books, keep reading.
