April Recap

Life lately
I've officially been at my new job for a month, May is tomorrow and I finally don't need my winter coat anymore?! Where has the time gone! But it feels great. Warmer always makes me happier plus it feels nice to not feel like such a newbie at work anymore (although I really still am!). And every week, I've had at least one outing with friends – usually involving ice cream – so there's a lot to be happy about. I'm still super focused on the goal I've been tackling lately which is health and fitness. I've actually been meal planning, bringing lunch to work most days and trying to eat better so I can indulge when I want to. The working out part is still what I struggle with most though. I've been doing YouTube videos this past week but I really do miss my Friday morning zumba classes. When I'm home, it's just far too easy to be a couch potato, especially when I'm binge-ing a new show. And if you follow me on Twitter, you know that I finally started watching This Is Us. I was just never in the mood for it but O M G, it has lived up to the hype so far. I finished Season 1 last week and am excited to start Season 2.

Book Reviews

Read but not reviewed
  • The Case for Jamie (Charlotte Holmes #3) by Brittany Cavallaro - 3 stars; I've been a huge fan of this series and was so impressed by the first two books but this last one just fell flat for me. Honestly if I didn't feel such affection for Holmes and Watson, I would've rated it lower. 
  • High Voltage (Fever #9) by Karen Marie Moning - 4 stars; I've always struggled with Dani as a main narrator (I'm 100% a Mac & Barrons girl) but this took me by surprise. It was slow going at first but it went in such an unexpected direction and I was totally invested. 
  • I Knew You Were Trouble (Oxford, #4) by Lauren Layne - 3 stars; I love how consistently enjoyable this series is. If you like office romances and quick reads, I'd recommend this series.
  • Sightwitch (The Witchlands, #0.5) - 2 stars; I really wanted to like this book since I shipped Ryber and Kullen despite the little we knew about them. But I just found this novella to be so boring and disjointed. And because of how Ryber was written, I preferred her as a secondary character rather than a main one. The best parts of the books were definitely Kullen (when he finally appeared) and a side story from the past. 

How's your month been?


  1. Meanwhile I'm still wearing my ski jacket! I probably won't be shedding that until the end of May, England is still pretty cold for me. We had a mini heatwave at the start of April and now the weather is just confused, sometimes it rains, sometimes it's too warm to function. :(

  2. Oh man, this was the month we hit up Black Tap together? I'm now craving a milkshake.
