Late March/April Wrap-Up #Books #BookReviews #Music #ReadingChallenge

It’s hard to believe we’re coming into May! This month flew for me. Now that the weather is warming up and all the snow is gone, it’s been a pleasure to spend more time outside in nature. I’m feeling very positive about the upcoming growing season too.

I returned to blogging the second half of March. Because I missed that wrap-up, I’m going to combine everything I’ve posted since coming back. I’ve had a few good months and feel really good about being back here in the blogging community again, especially now that I’ve figured out the block editor. 🙂

Regular Book Reviews from March-April:


Reading Challenges:

I started my own personal 2021 Retelling Reading Challenge since it doesn’t have a host this year. Since I’ve started, I’ve completed 6 books towards this challenge. I do have a DNF (Love in the Wild) which I’ll talk about next week. This means in order to meet the goal, I have 9 books left to read by the end of the year. I’m thinking it’s possible to surpass my original goal at this point.

1. Of Beast and Beauty by Chanda Hahn - Review - 2.5-3***
2. Nottingham: The True Story of Robynhood by Anna Burke - Review - 4****
3. Vasilisa (Old Rus #1) by Julie Mathison - Review - 4****
4. Red Wolf by Rachel Vincent - Review - 4-4.5 ****
5. The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman - Review - 4****
6. The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle - Review - 4****

I’ve completed my Goodreads Challenge early. At the beginning of the year, I set it fairly low at 60 books total. Usually I do 100, but I didn’t want to add too much and regret it later. Hopefully I’ll read well over 100 books now that I’m back to reading full time.

I did a few ‘This Week’s Reads’ posts. Luckily I was able to read almost all of the planned books, with the exception of one that doesn’t publish until December. I decided to wait on the NetGalley books with publish dates past July.


So that’s it for March and April! I’m hoping to have a productive May as well. I’ll be doing a May thyroid health update after receiving a few emails from people asking about my Medical Medium progress. Flower Friday posts will hopefully increase too.

I hope you all had a wonderful April. Happy reading, and have a beautiful weekend!

    1. Thanks so much. The block editor is still such a pain at times. There are pros and cons just like everything I guess. It’s funny because when I open old posts, the classic editor opens up, and then I’m lost all over again. I just need the process to remain constant and I’m good. 😆
