Monthly Rewind: April 2015 + May TBR


April in one word:

Fun


I laughed a lot in April. Not so much at the beginning but the rest of the month was good. This month just made me happy and there are a few reasons to this, but most that I will keep to myself. It was just a good month overall.

I'm glad I was able to remain pretty active this month (surprisingly!) and posted more than I thought I would. I even posted four reviews! That's quite a feat for me. I'm really looking forward to this month.
5 Things that happened in April:

1. My brother turned 18! I know this isn't about me but it happened (he also got his drivers license!)
2. I got a box of ARC's!
3. I changed the layout of my blog again!
4. I signed up for a few different runs (one of them is happening tomorrow!)
5. I went to an 80's night at a bar (for the second time) and had the most amazing time



New books on my shelf

Let's talk about all those lovely books pictured above. That box of ARC's! I was really excited about this because it was unexpected, it contained 5 YA books that sounded amazing and it had been a while since I received a few books that I am really excited about!

For review:
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
Etherworld by Claudia Gabel & Cheryl Klam
Everything That Makes You by Moriah McStay
Every Last Promise by Kristin Halbrook
Wrong About the Guy by Clare LaZebnik
Gifts:
The Merciless by Danielle Vega


Purchased:
The One That Got Away by Bethany Chase


I hadn't purchased any books in a while but when I read the synopsis and reviews of The One That Got Away, I immediately ordered a copy.
Reading Goals: 

For the month of April, I only finished How to Say Goodbye in Robot and made a good dent in I'll Give You the Sun but haven't finished it. I did mark one DNF which I will be discussing later in a roundup of Unfinished Reads. So I may be setting my goals a little high (as usual) for the month of May.

The One That Got Away by Bethany Chase (currently reading)
I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson (currently listening to)
Deadpool: X Marks the Spot by Daniel Way (currently reading)
The Duff: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger
Everything That Makes You by Moriah McStay



Overall it was a good month and I am definitely ready for May :) Hope everyone else had a great month too!
