April 2020 wrap up and May goals

Hello! It it is finally May, and I am so excited! So, I’m going to keep this introduction very short, and without further ado, here is my April 2020 wrap up, and my May goals!

I read 16 books in April. Of those 17 books…

  • 12 were audiobooks
  • 4 were ebooks
  • 0 were physical books
  • Into the Gauntlet, by Margaret Peterson Haddix
  • Vespers Rising, by Rick Riordan, Peter Lerangis, Gordan Korman and Jude Watson
  • The Medusa Plot, by Gordan Korman
  • A King’s Ransom, by Jude Watson
  • The Dead of Night, by Peter Lerangis
  • Shatterproof, by Roland Smith
  • Trust No One, by Linda Sue Park
  • Day of Doom, by David Baldacci
  • Nowhere to Run, by Jude Watson
  • Breakaway, by Jeff Hirsch
  • Countdown, by Natalie Standaford
  • The Hiccupotamus, by Aaron Zenz
  • Hattie Big Sky, by Kirby Larson
  • Louder than Words, by Kathy Kacer
  • Diana Alderoot and the Gilded Mage, by Trista Shaye
  • They Went Left, by Monica Hesse

I wrote 11 posts in April, which is not as many as I wanted, but I’m still happy.

My goals for posting in April were…

  • 2 Other posts; lists, photos… ✅I did 2!
  • 2 Top Ten Tuesday ❌I did 1!
  • 2 WWW Wednesday ❌I did 1!
  • 3 Tags ❌I did 1
  • 3 Reviews ✅I did 4!
  • 3 Let’s Talk Bookish ❌I did 1!

I want to read 30 books in May.

I want to read 15 physical books, and I laid them out here.

I also want to read five ebooks, and listen to ten audiobooks.

In May, I want to write…

  • 3 Top Ten Tuesdays
  • 3 WWW Wednesdays
  • 3 Let’s Talk Bookish
  • 3 Tags
  • 3 Other posts

That’s fifteen posts, and I think that I’ll be able to do that!

In April, I actually wrote a lot! I participated in Camp NaNoWriMo, and actually wrote a story!

My word count goal was 10 000 words, and I reached that, writing a total of 13 978 words throughout the month! I didn’t completely finish the story, though, so I’m going to be working on that throughout May. That’s my creative writing goal for May! I want to finish the novel, and edit it!

Last month I said wanted to write a few chapters of the story I’d been working on, and that I also might post the story that I wrote in French on here. In English and in French. I actually completely forgot about that, but now that I remember I might do it! I didn’t write a few chapters of the story I’d been working on, but instead started a completely new project, which I worked on consistently throughout the month.

So, I’m actually really happy with the writing that I got done in April!

Other exciting things around the blog and in my life:

Well… this month marked exactly one month since I’d seen anyone outside of my family. Then, that one month six weeks, and that time is just increasing.

It’s definitely not been fun sheltering in place, and social distancing from everyone, but I am really grateful that I’m able to be with my family, and that my parents job’s allow them to work from home.


On a happier note, in April, I interviewed an author! And not only was this any author, but this is my favorite author of all time. So you should totally go check out the interview! Because I am so happy that I was able to do this!!!!


I also have had an overwhelming amount of schoolwork, which has been not very fun to keep up with. I started all of my online school this month, and it’s been challenging to change how I’m doing all of my schoolwork. I am getting more used to it though!

Well, that’s all for now! How did your April go? What are some of your goals for next month? I hope that you all have an amazing May!

  1. Seeing the 39 Clues books brings back so many memories! If I remember correctly there used to also be a website related to all the shenanigans that Amy and Dan went through, but it’s been a while! I’m super impressed with how much you managed to read and post while isolating! I know it’s been difficult for me to keep up with both, especially with online classes thrown into the mix!

    I hope you have a wonderful May, and manage to accomplish all your goals!
