Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2018! || Where lots of unexpected (but goood) stuff happened!

Heeeeeey guys!!! How are you all doing??

A looooooot happened this month. April was kind of a turning point in my life and it was quite productive as well. But due to those reasons, I didn’t get a lot of time for reading. Fortunately, all my posts for this month were pre-scheduled, otherwise, I think it would have been totally empty! Neither did I get to blog hop but I am hoping to do so this weekend. (I have like 2k bookish emails to check!! HAAALP!!)

Anyway, now onto the bookish goodness!

Books I’ve read in April:




Books I’ve reviewed this month (Link to my reviews):

4/5 stars

Life Updates:

April was a good month guys. Yes, I didn’t get to engage in bookish activities much but hopefully, I can balance my schedule in the upcoming days. Okay, so the most exciting news is that I got a jooooooooob!! It was actually unexpected but when I got the call that I got in, it was one of the best moments in my life and working as a content writer is so fulfilling. I mean, I can’t explain the happiness I am feeling right now. I am enjoying work so much guys and I finally feel like I am something doing something worthwhile. My team members are awesome and the working environment is pretty good too. I think I definitely got lucky in my first real job. 🙂

I didn’t get to buy any books this month but I saw Ready Player One with one of my most adorable ARMY friend. Gooooodness, that movie was just soo awesome! Review of both the book and the movie is coming up next month, so stay tuned in for that! ❤

I also participated in Camp NaNoWriMo this month. Due to my schedule, I set my goal only to 15k. Right now, I have reached 10k so far but I am hoping to meet my goal by this weekend! This is the first time I am working on a diverse fantasy book called The Boy Who Touched the Moon. You can check out my Pinterest board for this novel here!! It’s off to good start, I hope I can maintain the pace as well as the essence!!



Yaaaaatie I reached my goal of 15k!!! I hope to at least write 10 to 12k each month so that I finish the draft!!

Also, I don’t think I can actively post like I used to. Maybe once or twice a week but I am not giving up on blogging. Never!

What about you guys??

So guys, how was your April? How many books did you manage to read? Which was your favourite read this month? Did you participate in Camp NaNoWriMo? If yes, how was your overall experience?
