Book Review, Monthly Roundup

April Round Up

I hope you are all keeping well and safe, I know that I’ve been MIA a little bit this month but, I’ve not been to good. Here in the U.K. the pollen count has been very high, they say that it’s been the highest pollen count in 70 years. Which unfortunately has really affected my asthma and I’ve been on a high dose of steroids for over a month.

I guess that most of you are still on lock-down like myself. I don’t know about all of you, but at times I’m still finding it hard with the lock-down. Last week the girls had a girls night in, where we all got our favourite tipple and then we all used House Party to see and chat with each other. We all had a really good catch up, we were all talking together for four hours! Yes we women can talk and talk, but we all had a great time, and we will be doing it again soon. We were also laughing that when lock-down is over that we’ll carry on getting together this way instead of going out.

Anyway back to the books now. This April I managed to read 5 books and reviewed 4 books with 5 more reviews to write.  I still don’t seem to be catching up with my reviews as I hoped I would, never mind I will get there.

No Regrets: I chose this cover because it’s so bright and cheerful, which is just what I need at the moment. Plus it makes me want to open the book are read it.

The Trouble with Tabbies: I just love the colour purple so that’s one of the reasons for choosing this cover the other reason is because of the cats. As I love cats.
