Show & Tell – April Reading

Between #MGCarousel’s book bingo and binging on #IndieApril reads, I packed in a lot of pages during April. An accomplishment, considering I also managed to write 30,000 words for Camp NaNoWriMo (yay!). Oh, and I’ve been plugging away at #36daysoftype on Instagram. It’s been a wild month.

(links will take you to Goodreads)

Title Starts with ‘A’: Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
Pick Your Prompt (#IndieApril): Where the Woods Grow Wild by Nate Philbrick
Science Fiction: Legends of Zita the Sacegirl by Ben Hatke

It makes me very happy that all three of the books on my bingo board are predominantly green!



Designed as a way to spotlight and celebrate self- and independently-published authors, #IndieApril seemed like the perfect excuse for me to read some of the indie books that have been lurking on my Kindle.

The Weavers’ Blessing by Beth Wangler (YA fairy tale fantasy)
The Confectioner’s Guild by Claire Luana (YA, fantasy adventure)
How to Catch a Unicorn and Other Misadventures: A Humorous Romance Anthology (general, clean romantic fantasy & humor)


Where the Woods Grow Wild by Nate Philbrick (MG, fantasy adventure)
Goodbye Winter by Linda Marie Crawford (women’s fiction short story, contemporary grief)
Marked by Stars by Forthright (YA short story, fantasy lore)

I also did a thread on Twitter to highlight some of my absolute favorite indie published books if you’re looking for recommendations!


What’s Next?

I’m so excited to participate in Middle Grade Carousel’s #BookADayMay challenge. 31 days, 31 books. Admittedly, they’re going to be SHORT books, but it’ll go a long way toward my Goodreads goal.
