So this is my wrap up for April a week late because well… I’ve been shunning all responsibilities. But here goes nothing 😀
So what did I do this month when I wasn’t really present on the blog? Well, it was the one year anniversary of me choosing Christ and being baptised – and I took the day to remember that choice and think about it. I didn’t really celebrate though.
I was in the biggest reading and blogging slump that I have ever been in in my life. I had no preparation on how to handle this.
This month was also the school prom which I did go to this year. I didn’t go all out and buy a new dress or anything (I used one of the church dresses I already own) and it was okay. The prom itself was kind of boring but the company was great.
There’s this pretty epic guy who has become pretty special to me lately 😉
My older sister came home for a bit and as a family we went to see Kung Fu Panda 3. It was good, but not as great as the previous two have been. I also went to the cinema most this month than I have in a long time, also seeing Civil War (pretty good! I was impressed. Team Iron Man all the way) and The Jungle Book too (which was brilliant! I can’t wait to talk more about it.)
I went up to the North of Holland for a holiday with my family and my best friend came along too. We went to three museums – a house development, a prison and a prehistoric one. We went to the cinema there and to this amazing zoo where I took a lot of pictures. Expect to be seeing them come up as Olivia Snaps soon!
I shouldn’t really be complaining because seven books is a decent enough number. But I just didn’t really feel it this month. I had so much time to read so much more and I just couldn’t. Anyway, here they are.
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adieh – That took me by surprise! There was a lot of hype and I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did. I read the whole thing in a day. Before the slump, of course.
King Lear by Shakespeare – This was required school reading. It was a decent play but disappointing because I expected to like it a lot more than I did.
The Secret History by Donna Tartt – This was a buddy read with Noelia @ A Day in Bookland. I loved Tartt’s The Goldfinch so I was looking forward to this a lot. But there were a lot of issues with the pacing and the story wasn’t nearly as good as I hoped. Such a shame. It dragged.
No Love Allowed by Kate Evangelista, Mail Order Brides by many authors, Death Wish by Megan Tayte and The 13th Continuum by Jennifer Brody are all ones I reviewed.
Because it’s pretty much the same as last month with only a few little changes, I’m just going to show you a photo and not list anything! Sorry but #laziness.
