April 2021 Reading Recap

Another month of reading has come & gone.
I somehow got quite a bit of reading done compared to the last two months, might be because of our super strict lockdown restrictions & the meh spring/winter weather but I ain’t complaining. Plus I am thankfully still on track to hit my 55 book goal or maybe even surpass it yet again, which is amazing.

So with April coming to an end, here is my fourth Reading Recap of 2021:

2021 Reading Challenge
– 18/55

Currently Reading:
All About Us by Tom Ellen

Completed in April:

  • The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
  • Woman On The Edge by Samantha Bailey 
  • Lola & The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
  • Dare to Lead by Brene Brown
  • Shipped by Angie Hockman
  • In A Holidaze by Christina Lauren

My Thoughts:

  • The Midnight Library: So this one was recommended to me by one of the girls at work. She loved it & hyped it up, so I took a crack at it & unfortunately it just wasn’t my cup of tea. I don’t think it was one thing per say, but there was something I just wasn’t a fan of unfortunately.
  • Woman On The Edge: OMG, I read this in like a day I think, it was so addicting & just so good. I want to say it’s a little bit of a thriller, & you have to slightly pay attention since it jumps between two women. But it’s easy to differentiate them, but omg it was so good.
  • Lola & The Boy Next Door: This one was okay, it is the second book in a series which I had no idea. But other than that it wasn’t bad, a little predictable & a total teen read but it was a light read.
  • Dare to Lead: This was a leadership book, & I actually listened to it on my daily walks. I really enjoyed it & have definitely learned a lot, especially since I am in a managerial role, it was really insightful & educational!
  • Shipped: Alright, so I loved this one. I read it in maybe two days, it was so addicting. It was predictable, light – beachy read, which I already love, but also just had me hooked. I did learn a whole lot about not only marketing roles (as described in books) which was funny because I am currently in a marketing role, but also the book was set in the Galapagos (which is on my bucket list) which was nice & refreshing since that isn'[t a location most books are set in. But I 10000% think this should be on everyones must read lists for summer, if romance/beachy reads are your thing. 
  • In A Holidaze: I have been on hold to get this book for MONTHS, so despite it being a ‘christmas’ book, I finally got to read it. I found it pretty hit or miss, some parts I enjoyed other parts I didn’t but it happens! I did find it to be a pretty quick read & i’m glad I finally read it & got it off my to-read list!

Have you read anything worth recommending?
Let me know in the comments, I’m seriously looking for new books! 

Also do you have Goodreads? Let’s be friends, I love seeing how everyone is doing on their challenges & what your reading!
