At the end of March, I was so positive about the whole quarantine situation and then I hit the end of April…… On a good day, I am OK. I can work through it and be fine. But I have bad days as well where I just can’t even. If that is you too, you are not alone.
Did I read more this month? Yes! Did I review more this month? No! But that’s OK. I built myself a little bit of a back list for reviews so that when life does get back to normal or for when I hit some book slump, you, my reader, will not suffer.

Awards and Superlatives
Awards and superlatives are selected by me and only me. I’m not the Academy Awards nor do I claim to be. These should be taken light and halfheartedly because they are fun….unless you are the actual author. Then, they should totally be taken seriously. Totally.
Favorite Book of the Month: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas
Most Shocking Ending: The Woman In The Mirror by Rebecca James
Most Likely To Make You Laugh: You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle
Most Likely To Re-Read: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas, Wild At Heart by KA Tucker, and You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle
Other Bookish Fun
Most of my posts are book reviews but I do have a few other gems, too!
I introduced a new monthly book list called Top 6. This post will feature six of the most anticipated books for the upcoming month. If you missed it, here’s the link: Top Six Anticipated Reads: April Edition
Are you looking for a new book? Would you like some suggestions? The In Need of a Book Recommendation? post lists ten books that I have read this year and absolutely loved. This article covers various genres like romance, thrillers, fantasy, contemporary fiction, Young Adult, etc.
And lastly, if you are an avid follower, you know that there is going to be at least one monthly plug for Book of the Month. I cannot help it. For every new member that signs up, I get a tiny commission. You can get your first box for $9.99 plus tax using code TAKECARE.

Upcoming ARC / Book Reviews and Other Fun
The following is a list of books I have read in April but have not reviewed yet. You will see them in May!
- Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson (as part of the #threefriendsbookclub on Instagram)
- The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez
#threefriendsbookclub Buddy Read News: May’s book will be The New Husband by Daniel Palmer. Join the buddy read fun over on Instagram!
What’s a buddy read? It’s a small discussion with other bookworms on a chosen book. Basically, it’s virtual book club. Ours is really low key and informal, too. We don’t want any pressure!
One more item before I go, most of the books I read / review can be found at my Amazon store front: www.amazon.com/shop/jm_bibliolater. So if you have the budget and are wanting a new book, go check it out.
