Monthly Wrap-Up | April 2020

A green banner designed to look like ripped paper with tape on edges reads "monthly wrap-up." On either side of text is an illustrated image of a stack of books and an orange & white cat winking.

Thank goodness April is over! I swear, this past month felt super short and too long all at the same time. It’s been a stressful month and getting through quarantine has been such a challenge. I’ve missed my library so much and working from home has been such a difficult adjustment. Things have been a bit overwhelming, but I’m so grateful books exist. Being stressed makes me read more, so I am glad to report that I managed to read X books in April!

Here’s the wrap-up of everything I read, featuring my favorite covers of some of my reads this month!

Young Adult

Middle grade



graphic novels & comics


Format break-down

In April, I read a total of 24 books. Here’s the format that I read them in:

  • 2 were physical books – both were ARCs
  • 8 were audiobooks checked out from my library (via Hoopla or Libby)
  • 14 were eBooks
    • 6  were eARCs
    • 1 was an eBooks that I purchased
    • 7 of those were eBooks that I checked out from my library (via Hoopla or Libby)


What was your favorite book you read in April?

Happy reading! Ari

  1. Ari, you had a fantastic reading month!!! How did you like Something to Talk About and The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires?
    I have Four Days of You and Me and Late to the Party on my tbr for this year, not sure yet, when I’ll get to it. 😀


      1. OMG Something to Talk About was an ultimate slowburn – fortunately I’ve read some before by Mariana Zapata and I wasn’t too shocked by it, but I didn’t expect it to be this slow either – lol


  2. Wow you read a ton of books! I’m especially loving the YA novels you read. Hope you have a great May!


  3. Clap When You Land is high on my wish list as I just recently read and enjoyed The Poet X. From the Desk of Zoe Washington was so good and my copy now has a signed bookplate thanks to the author who had to cancel her in person events. I can’t wait to read her next books too.
