April Wrap-Up and May TBR

Hey Bookends,

It is so hard to believe that it is already the month of May, I’m]’m going to be out of school in about four weeks!!! I read a total of four books this month, it’s not great but I just keep getting distracted during my reading hour. Half of those books were books that were on last month’s TBR though so I am happy about that. I actually don’t know how much I will read this month because it is time to start getting ready for exams at the end of the month. I did participate in 3 read-a-thons this month. The #TBRTakedown 3.5 (TBR & Wrap-Up), The Spring Into Horror Read-a-long (TBR& Wrap-Up coming soon), and The Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon (TBR & Wrap-Up coming soon). So with that being said, let me tell you about the four books I read.

  • First I finished Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen which I gave 2/5 stars.
  • I then read Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin and gave it 4.5/ 5 stars
  • Next I picked up Trigger Warning by Neil Gainman which I gave 4/5 stars.
  • Finally I read Station Eleven by Emily Mandel and gave it 4.5/5 stars.

Now it’s time for my TBR, which gets bigger and bigger each month because I am not reading enough.

  • The Paris Wife by Paula McLain ( From January)
  • The Doomsday Conspiracy by Sidney Sheldon (From February)
  • Ordinary Grace by William Kruger (From March) (Currently Reading)

So I am going to start another section, and I know what your thinking. Ivy, you barley finish your TBR as is. But wait, the other two books I read this month would have been under this section. And because I am planning on reading them and I want to feel good about myself. I am going to add a Read-a-long section. I want to read books a long with the goodreads group Readwithfriends so that is why I am adding this section.

  • The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
  • The BFG by Roald Dahl
  • The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
  • Anne of the Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
