April was such a good reading month! I did two major readathons, OWLs Readathon and End Game Readathon (hosted by Kari and I), and successfully completed both. I even read some things that weren’t on my TBRs for my readathons, and read some short stories with my English 11 class. I read 21 things this month, which is pretty good if you ask me! I loved almost everything I read, so I really can’t complain about it all that much.

***Disclaimer: I received a free early access copy of Romanov by Nadine Brandes from NetGalley and Thomas Nelson for review purposes. Thank you so much for opportunity.
I was so excited about Fawkes that you should’ve seen my face when I learned Romanov was going to exist! The Romanovs were such an interesting family and all of the mysterious circumstances that surrounded their true disappearance. The speculation of Anastasia living, the rise of Leninism ,and just the general misfortune upon them is so interesting and heartbreaking.
**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Romanov by Nadine Brandes is an alternate history version of the execution of the Romanov family, the last royal family of Russia with magic.
I set a resolution this year that went something along the lines of “Read more of what you already own.” This month I did terribly on that resolution. I treated myself perhaps a bit too much. However, much of what I purchased was from a sale in the Kobo bookstore, so at least they won’t take up a huge amount of space on my bookshelf.
April is going to be a busier reading month for me. Well, I normally read a lot, but I don’t normally plan as many books as I have planned for this month. However, I don’t normally participate in readathons and this month I am participating in two. In case you missed my previous posts, I am co-hosting the End Game Readathon with Kari, and just participating in the OWLs Readathon. I’m a little late to writing this TBR, so a couple of my reads for the readathons are done and I have already had to make a couple of changes from my initial TBR. So this will be my updated TBR, and yes, I will still be including the ones I’ve technically already finished. Let’s get to it!
