APRIL WRAP UP POST

What a month April was-with all the crazy weather we had:Snowing one day and next day it hits 60!!
I think I did pretty good, though compared to other bloggers, I barely read-LOL. I think they DEVOUR their books-just kidding. Anyways here is what I accomplished this month:
Books Read/reviewed: 2 finished and 1 DNF.
I finished Beneath the Texas Sky by Jodi Thomas
Beneath the Texas Sky. I also finished and reviewed Desperate Girls by Laura Griffin- a new to me author but someone I wanted to read for a while-and have just ordered 2 more of her books!!
DESPERATE GIRLS-LAURA GRIFFINIt has pre-order links-as this won't be released until August (which I didn't know before I posted review-LOL). Ah well,this is definitely a great read.

Blogs visited in April-898! 
Contests won-5!
Goodreads contests entered:196
I did 4 Stacking the Shelves, 1 Friday 56, 2 Top Ten Tuesdays, and 2 It's Monday What Are You Reading? memes.
I did one countdown blitz for Michelle Mankin's Oceanside:
Countdown Blitz-OCEANSIDE.
I had one giveaway that no one entered. 
I signed up for one tour for the end of July.
I got my first subscription box-The Nerdy Post-My First Box-The Nerdy Post. Which I really liked.
I did 3 book tags, The Yakkety Yak Book Tag, The Book Blogger Confession Book Tag.
I have just signed up for Amazon Prime, as I earned a $10 Amazon GC from Survey Junkie-so I naturally ordered another book, then I got a $25 GC so I just had all kinds of fun ordering, so Prime is definitely worth it, as my one order will be here by Friday!!Love it.
I feel like I got more done than what I've posted!!
Well this is my monthly wrap up post. 

Thanks for all my visitors and followers!!

  2. Wow, you've been busy! I can't believe it's been snowing in some parts of the country. Here in the Phoenix suburbs, it's been a little overcast but mostly just hot!

    Thanks for visiting my blog today. I appreciate it :)

  4. This has been a crazy crazy spring. Saturday I was at an outdoor wedding and had to come up with a last minute outfit because I'd planned for spring and when the day came it was threatening upper 30s! And now today, 3 days later, we have AC because we had a near record high of 87°!

  5. Looks like you had a great April! I'm in awe of how many books some bloggers are able to read in a month. Lately I've been lucky to manage 1 or 2 read by the end of the month, lol. Thanks for stopping by my wrap-up post! :D

  8. Ah so you have been busy with entering giveaways, I usually forget about them! I've thought of Prime but living overseas I think its not so much of an advantage. Happy May reading.
