April is always that month that makes me excited for spring. Of course, it’s the rainy month before the real spring begins, but I love the rain. It’s also my anniversary month, so I’m in a little bit of a lovey dovey mood.
Aside from Easter and our anniversary, this month will be another one of sitting at home and reading books. Here’s a few of my plans:
- Now that more donation-based store are allowing for people to bring in their donations, I can finally get rid of mine. You may know this infamous wall of books I have in my reading nook. Well, that’s actually all the books I’m trying to get rid of. Yep, those are the books I don’t want in my collection. I’ve just been keeping them in that space and using them as a prop for photos, but I’ll be getting rid of them soon. I’m going to a few neighborhood Little Free Libraries and stocking those up. The rest will be donated to the Goodwill and to the local used bookstores. It’s finally time to liberate those books.
- Since it’s also my anniversary month and more fruits come into season, I’ll probably doing some baking. It’s crumble time! I love making crisps and crumbles from the fresh berries and fruit at the local supermarket. I love making these because they’re easy, my husband loves them, and you can make them with pretty much any fruit you can find. Oh, I absolutely love some delicious fruit pies.
- I also have a variety of book promotions, launches, and Indie Bookstore Day at the end of April. It’ll be a great month of books and I’m excited to start a new month with a fresh perspective.
Here’s what I plan to read:
- Hail Mary by Andy Weir
- The Fifth Season by NK Jemisin
- Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller (did everyone read that article about Booktok?)
- Victories Greater Than Death by Charlie Jane Anders
- Kindred Spirits Book Club by Amy E Reichert
- Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas
I also have a bunch of books I’m calling my “second string” for when I finish this first group of books. I’ll share more once I’m ready to share those. Hope to have a great spring! I’ll chat with you more soon.

I will come out and say I read the entire Broken Earth trilogy and thought it was one of the most amazing works of fiction I’ve ever read. Excited for you already!
Oh, you’ll feel so light when you can get rid of all those books! Charity shops aren’t open here yet but I’m really looking forward to doing the same. Hope you have a great reading month!
