My wrap-up post for April 2017 will most likely be shorter and less substantial than my previous monthly synopsis for March 2017 because — cue dramatic pause — I’ve blogged even less frequently this time around. Yep, given my prolonged inactivity, I didn’t think this was possible either.
What I’ve read and reviewed!
Oh, hey! I was able to post two book reviews this month. That’s like two more than March. Insert self-deprecating laugh here.
Whoops. Without further ado:
What I’ve read but have yet to review!
- In My Dreams by Yeyet Soriano
- Tell Me a Story by Tamara Lush
What I’ve written!
Under Shealea writes:

Plans for next month?
What are my plans for May? It seems the universe has decided for me. May is the last month of my fourth year, second semester which means final projects, final exams, and the last batch of deadly deadlines I have to deal with. Busy, busy, busy.
I do have a couple of blog tours lined up for the month, but other than those, expect extremely minor blog activity from me. Just typing that last sentence makes me very sad. But don’t let my prolonged hiatus bring you down! Let me know what’s going on with you and what your plans are for May 2017. I’d really love to know.
