April 2020 Reading List

IMG_1681Is my April book stack almost as tall as my pupper dog Sadie? Yes, yes it is. Is this all the books I want to read in April? No, no it’s not. Not included in this stack of books are my April Book of the Month picks and all the eARCs I need to get to reading.

With COVID-19 self-isolation running through the entire month of April now, I’m hoping the best thing that comes out of it is more reading time! I’m starting out April with 30% of my 2020 reading goal being completed and I’m hoping that I can get to at least 40% completed. That means I need to read at least 10 books in April. I think I can manage that!

Book Club & Buddy Reads

Lets Read Rant Repeat Book Club Pick

Bookstagram is such a wonderful community and I have met quite a few folks that I now consider to be friends. One of these is Jordan from @readwithwine and together we host a Virtual Book Club @letsreadrantrepeat. Our aim is to read a variety of genres, constantly switching it up to ensure we are reading something everyone will enjoy. Each month we choose 1 book that can be practically any type of story. We host a group chat with fellow book lovers on Instagram, where we can talk about the book as we read. At the end of the month (a specified Sunday at 7pm CST) Jordan and I get together for wine & an Instagram Live discussion. We generally invite guests from our group chat to share their thoughts on the book as well!

Our April Book Club Discussion will be held on Sunday April 19th at 7pm CST. Head to our Instagram @letsreadrantrepeat to join in the discussion. This month we’ll be reading:
