Wrap-Up: April 2020

Wrap-Up Cover to Cover book blog kat snark reading books reader

hello, lovelies!

This month … well I’m not going to go into detail. You know allllll about what’s happening this month and the situation that we’re in. I’m lucky enough to have made this an incredibly lucrative reading month! My two-month reading slump ended almost right before this Q-situation began, so I’ve been throwing myself between pages and enjoying my vacations immensely. I read a total of 24 books this month, which amounts to 8,708 pages read! Which is an incredibly high number – and yet 561 pages short of what I read in March. Ah well, not every month can have Crescent City in it, can it?

Hopping on the good news train… I’ve just wrapped up my freshman year of college. It was… anti-climatic, to say the least, considering I turned in my final exam (Marketing, no less) and then turned over to take a nap. Only to get burnt to a crisp because I was in the sun! But I’m happy too be done. I will enjoy my week-and-a-half off before summer courses begin :) What’s new with you? 

Check out some of my fav posts below if you need some of my biggest recommendations to keep you busy 🥰

  1. I just read my first Heather McCollum book – The Beast of Aros Castle and I thought it was a great, fun read. Really quick. Of course, I’m a sucker for highlander romances….
