Hello, lovelies! April has come to an end, so I have another month of reading to wrap up for you. This month I want to try something a little different. I’m still going to share how many books, which books, and what format I read them in. But I want to do a bit more with my wrap up posts. I’m going to try it out this month and see how it goes.

This is one of the new things I want to try this month. Each month I’d light to highlight some of the content I’ve posted that I’m excited about or pleased with. So, I will be doing that here. Since this is new, I’m going to highlight posts from January until now, but in the future, I’d like to just highlight some of my favorite posts and reviews from the month I’m wrapping up.
