April Wrap-Up

Hey guys! I can’t believe we are already four months into 2017. It feels like 2016 just ended. Anyway, April was quite an eventful month! I read quite a bit but not as much as i would have liked to though. Although, I had so many different things take place in April so I forgive myself. I read seven books this month. Let’s get into the wrap-up!
