April was a super busy month for me. Of course, I was engaged in normal activities like parenting three little ones during a pandemic and my managing my other full time job as an English educator. But also, spoiler alert: I relaunched my book blog as a full-blown website! This was a biggie milestone for me. Motherhood has really made me reimagine my goals and starting this blog reclaims some of them that I had with my pre-Mom identity. If you are a parent of young children you know what I am talking about.
So as I juggled multiple events during this beautiful spring month, my #AprilReads pile ended up being a little lighter than what I had planned. I started a few books mid-month that I am still working on and plan to finish reading in early May. Check out my April Reads Wrap-up below.
