The months just come by and gone so quickly! Turns out I didn’t get a chance to do a wrap up for March as I planned so this month I will have both months. It will be a long list of books like I have always wanted. I always admire how others could read 10 or more books per month!
Here are books I have read & reviewed in March 2021: 10 books! But you know, it’s mostly picture books. I’m amazed just a little because reviewing kids books do take time too. I’ll be more amazed if I can read 10 regular books a month.
March was by far my best read & reviewed month. I was lucky because I loved reading all of them: Let Liberty Rise, A Psalm for the Wild-Built, Curls, Bad Nana, Bloom, The Love Square, Cars Signs and Porcupines, Pepper Page, Something’s Wrong, and Every Waking Hour!

In March, I saw a movie called The Giver and loved it so much that I watched it again. I need to read the book soon.
I participated in some virtual chats with publishers and authors. Not as many as I would have liked. It was fun. I participated in a book’s release by posting daily for a week, doing different activities for the book. I’m mostly active on my Instagram account so come follow me and I will follow you back @howusefulitis
Here are my April 2021 reads and reviews. 7 books! One nonfiction book I started reading since last year. It’s hard reading nonfiction books, in my case.
This April I also enjoyed all of the books that I read: Find You First, Last Gate of the Emperor, Only My Dog Knows I Pick My Nose, Central Park, The Maidens, Gay Bar, and Animal Watching. In no particular order, same as in March.
April I spent some time decorating my book pictures for Instagram. I’m always amazed at some bookstagrammer’s photos. I don’t think I’m creative enough but I’m trying. I probably need to purchase a fancy camera and a fancy photo editing app but for now, I’m just sticking to the basics, my iPhone.
My blog is free, which means free space is nearly getting full. I need to upgrade but I’m nervous about it because I don’t know the process. I need to do it in May or June but definitely soon. If you have experience, do let me know!
May is here and I have spent the first day celebrating my birthday with family and friends. The second day I was out and about shopping. Many stores has good family & friends sales. I also went to receive my second covid shot. Hopefully May 3rd I can just sit down and read!
I do recommend all of the books I have read and reviewed in March and April. See you in May!
