Monthly Wrap Up and TBR

I cannot believe April is already over. It definitely flew by on my end. I am still adjusting to my new role so I am not 100 percent back to blogging as much as I wish I was. 

Leading in to the summer I am hoping to read more books and am looking forward to peppering in more light, fun reads. 

Before I talk about what May will bring for me reading wise I have to recap April. 

The books that were on my list are:

A Night to Die For by Lisa Schroeder (goodreads)
Anatomy by Dana Schwartz  (goodreads)

I also had some ebooks that I hoped to read:

The Club by Ellery Lloyd (goodreads)
Birds of California by Katie Cotugno (goodreads)
Groupies by Sarah Priscus (goodreads)
How to Fake it in Hollywood by Ava Wilder (goodreads)

Here is what I managed to read in March:

Heartstopper: Volume 1 by Alice Oseman (goodreads)
Fresh by Margot Wood (goodreads)
The Club by Ellery Lloyd (goodreads)
A Night to Die For by Lisa Schroeder (goodreads)

I managed to read four books this month. I am going to call that a win because my work/life balance has not been great recently. 

My #PopCultureResolution book for March was Saga: Volume One by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples, which I managed to read and will review soon. The movie was A Star is Born and that has already been reviewed.

Here is what I hope to read in May:

Anatomy by Dana Schwartz  (goodreads)
I Kissed Shara Wheeler by Casey McQuiston (goodreads)

I also have some ebooks that I am hoping to get to:

Birds of California by Katie Cotugno (goodreads)
Groupies by Sarah Priscus (goodreads)
How to Fake it in Hollywood by Ava Wilder (goodreads)

My #PopCultureResolution picks for this month are Heartstopper by Alice Oseman. I had switched it and Monstress in my reading list because my library hold of Heartstopper took a bit to come in. I have already read it and it is amazing! My review is up if you want to read it. My movie is Funny Girl. I am excited to watch it soon! 

Next up is an update on my two reading challenges:
