The Monthly Recap: April 2018


Hey guys!

April came and went in a blink of an eye! I think I spent most of this month either working, reading and stressing the fuck out. I was also not in the best mood this month and it ended up affecting my reading schedule. I’m hoping May will be a better month for me overall and maybe I can finally stop being so grouchy. Anyways, let’s just get right into this wrap-up!

Let’s get started!

I read a total of 24 books this month! I am in shock because I don’t even remember having the time to read so many books. I will say that most of the books I read were on the shorter side which I guess is the reason for why I was able to speed through most of them. Most of the books I read this month were on the meh side and I think that’s why I fell into a reading slump during the second half of April. I did manage to finally find a 5-star read and it was Sustained by Emma Chase! This book was so darn adorable and I love it to bits. My favorite reads for this month are The Birthday List, Love and Other Words, Stone, The Pleasure of Panic and Sustained.

Cover Reveal: Folsom by Tarryn Fisher & Willow Aster



The only new release I have my eyes on for May is Jock Row by Sara Ney. I read the prequel to this book a few months back and enjoyed it so I’m excited to see what’s next.


That’s all for the month of April. Let me know in the comments which May romance releases you all are most excited for!

I'm Ari, a local NYC bibliophile and a forever daydreamer. You can usually find me with my nose buried in a book and my head up in the clouds. I am also a coffee addict and a chocolate connoisseur. I fell in love with the romance genre about three years ago and I haven't been able to stop reading about happily-ever-afters, which is ironic because I'm a bit of a cynical romantic in real life, haha. I hope you all enjoy my blog and fangirling with me about all the smutty reads!

    1. Sustained is definitely the best book in the series! It’s so adorable with all of the kids!! The Pucked books are a hit or miss with me. The only one I really loved was Pucked Off but other than that I don’t really care for the rest of them.

  1. I read the first Pucked book and I was so over it by the end. I loved Elle Kennedy’s Off Campus series which featured hockey players and that’s what drew me to Pucked but it definitely fell short for me.
