Monthly Recap {April 2017)

Hi, everyone! I'm so happy that Spring is finally here in full swing! It was another super month and I didn't get as much reading done as I had originally planned. I ended up reading three books last month. I've decided to not beat myself up about it and just go with the flow. After I get through a few ARCS I'm going to just pick up whatever I feel is right, it seems I get a LOT more read that way. 

What about you, are you a planner or feeler when it comes to reading? 

Well, here we go...

Other Bookish News...

I recently discovered the tv show about Anne of Green Gables. Have you all seen this show yet? So far I've only watched the first episode but it's oh so good! Anne is brilliant! I also plan on watching The White Princess soon! I watched The White Queen a while ago when it first came out and LOVED it!

And my favorite news... Interview with the Vampire is becoming a TV show!! I'm so freaking excited! Now I am ashamed to say that I have not read the books but I plan on reading at the first one before the show premiers.


  1. I have a plan of what I am going to read but it usually push it aside because I don't feel like following it. I guess that I am a mood reader. I am trying to just let myself pick a book out of what I need to read lately and it seems to be working. Have a great May!

All About That Cover: The Awakening (The Vampire Diaries #1) by L.J. Smith - An oldie but a goodie!

"All About That Cover" is a weekly feature that focuses on the differences between various book covers of the same book, such as cover changes, covers from different countries as well as special editions. 
Original Cover vs. TV tie-in edition

I don't know about y'all but I will always love the original cover. There's just something about YA book covers from the 90's. Notice the raven feather, too bad they didn't give Daemon shifting powers in the show!
