April 2021 Reading & Blog Wrap-Up

April was a busy month for both of us, but we both ended up reading quite a few books last month.

Amber rediscovered some old favourites and managed to actually beat Samantha for the amount of books read this month. It’s become a running joke between the two of us that Samantha’s the reading machine of the two of us (And yes, I am aware that I read a lot of children’s books this month, but I take what I can get.)

May will probably be a little light in terms of reading and blog posting, but we are hoping to still get some content out to you! We’re both starting school again on top full time job’s and life, so we’re not sure how much time we’ll have to dedicate to the blog. Once school’s done we’ll be back with lots of blog for everyone!

So, here’s our full April reading and blog wrap-up!

    1. Thank you! And me too. I’ve never been a rereader, but I’ve been reading a lot of old favourites lately. I think I’m in a bit of a reader slump and nothing new is interesting me, so I’m going back to the books I know I’ll love. And it’s fun rediscovering them as an adult.
