Monthly Round-Up for April
April has, as always been a varied and busy month – I have been in three countries (England, Northern Ireland and Wales), working full-time and reading as much as possible around that! I have attended a few bookish events, including the wonderful YA Shot and have gained some new books for the shelves – probably more than I should have, whoops!

April Achievements and Highlights
I went home for part of the Easter holidays and, despite having a cold, managed to relax, see friends and family, visit some historical sites and lots of bookshops!
Attended YA Shot in Uxbridge which was an amazing experience. I also, FINALLY, got up the nerve to say hello to some of the lovely book bloggers who I know from Twitter and blogging. Turns out they’re just as nice in real life!
My blog has gained more views already than it had in the entirety of last year – whoo hoo! I know that views aren’t everything but I am glad that someone out there is reading and enjoying my posts
I now have over 400 followers and over 2000 views, which has made me very happy.
Finally started using Instagram – please feel free to follow me or leave your links below as I am really enjoying finding new accounts to follow.
Thank you to everyone for reading!
Favourite tea: Have been drinking lots of Green Tea with Jasmine, as well as the entire Steamed Green Tea range from Twinings. Yum!
Skincare: Loving the Vitamin Facial Spritz from Superdrug’s B range – smells yummy and makes my skin glow!
Watching: Went to see A Wrinkle of Time and Ready Player One in the cinema – I loved Ready Player One even though it was different from the book. On the other hand, I was bitterly disappointed in A Wrinkle of Time because I had worried about how the weirdness of the book would translate to screen and it…just..didn’t…
I have not watched any TV this month – has anyone got any recommendations?
