BOOK CHAT: April 2018 in Review

It's my final monthly review to get myself all caught up ... at least in this area!  Let's take a look at the month, and then I can mark one more thing off of my to-do list!

As I mentioned yesterday, APRIL proved to be another month of chaos.  We had track and piano and Girl Scouts and meetings and more.  It had me begin counting down the days of how much of school remained, and anxiously awaiting a break to get in a little rest and relaxation.  This weekend is finally the weekend that I get to do just that, and I only have four more days left of work.  Well, sort of!  I do have some workshops and meetings scattered throughout the summer, but that's not too bad.  But, now I'm getting ahead of myself.  Let's move to the usual wrap-up . . .

The TOP PIC for the month was actually the TOP PICS for the month.  The first one was the latest progress on my library bookshelves.  Aren't they gorgeous?!  The second is from the library book sale that I was helping to set up.  Nothing beats being surrounded by books!

The number of BOOKS READ for the month improved over last month, but not by much.  I had three total this time, compared to the previous month's two.
  1. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
  2. Dragons at Crumbling Castle by Terry Pratchett
  3. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle

My FAVE BOOK of those read was probably Dragons at Crumbling Castle by Terry Pratchett.  The book was an audiobook collection of short stories.  I didn't enjoy all of them, but there were some really great imaginative treasures within.

MAY will pretty much be my final month of work before my summer break.  I am greatly looking forward to a break, and will power through this month the best I can!

YOUR TURN:  How was your month of April in reading?


  1. Just so you know it says April in your post title and May in your post!! And I haven't read Terry Pratchett yet but its on my list!!

  2. I am totally counting down until summer (6 school days) except that the day after school lets out, my sister and her four kids head out, with her leaving after a couple of days and leaving the oldest two kids behind for another week and a half! So I actually will have less rest while I parent three kids instead of one. Of course, they're 14, almost 14, and 12 so it's not like they will need me that much. Still, I'm preparing ... by putting together book stacks for them. ;)

    1. Kristen M. ... Awesome!! I hope that it has gone well. I'm curious about what those stacks look like!
