April Recap!

What a month. Spring is finally here, and the bulbs have bloomed. If you follow me on Instagram (@bookbuglove), you know I’ve been taking all the flower pictures lately.





The crazy thing is, I missed all this gorgeousness last year. I was so focused on how cold it was, that I didn’t even notice the spring time bloomz. It makes me sad for my last-year self. Oh well, I guess. Live and learn. Now I know that the light begins to shine at the end of the Midwest Winter Tunnel starting in April. And you know what? I can live with that.

As for books… I reviewed a fair number in April. (Click on the cover to see each review.):


Often I Am Happy

Indoor Green Living with Plants

The New Rules of Work


Eat Pretty

Anything Is Possible

What's Wrong with my Houseplant

Honestly, it was a pretty great month for books. A few were poopers, but I really enjoyed Born Anxious, Often I Am Happy, The New Rules of Work, and Anything Is Possible.

It was a solid month for music, too. Leela James just released a new album.

So did Frank Ocean. I’ve been listening to Lens on repeat. Basically nonstop. My family is annoyed.

Also, I recently realized I might be in love with Sturgill Simpson.

I don’t know, man. I’m feeling pretty good about life right now. I mean, I’ve got some personal stuff going on that is slightly depressing, but I’m still really looking forward to having a good May–and a good few months beyond that. Lots of books queued up to review. Trips planned, concerts scheduled. I’m just excited about another summer in Chicago.

  1. I’m glad you been enjoying the outdoors. My allergies have been killing me, so I’ve been a teary-eyed mess. I have also read a few good books this month and some that were, not so good. It happens. Hope you have an even better May!

    Ps: Thanks for telling reminding me to listen to the Frank Ocean album. I just keep forgetting, cause there’s so much amazing music coming out right now xxx

    1. You’re so right about the music. There’s been a lot of good stuff lately. I love it! I’m sorry about your allergies, though. I’ve been the same way–and I never used to even have allergies. It’s just been a bad year for everyone, from what I can tell. Some days are so miserable… Sending you healing vibes. I hope they pass for you soon.
