I'm so excited to start ARC April! My internet's been crap, so it's been frustrating trying to upload this post on time, but I'm glad to finally get some reviews and blogging done :) I have a lot of e-arcs, so that will be the majority of my pile. The books I'm hoping to get through this month include, but are not limited to:


Flawed by Cecelia Ahern

The Atonement by Beverly Lewis

Once Upon a Dream (Twisted Tales #2) by Liz Braswell

You Were Here by Cori McCarthy

These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly

Dying to Tell (Gumshoe Ghost Mystery 3) by T.J. Connor

When by Victoria Laurie

I Almost Forgot About You By Terry McMillan

I started on Flawed last month, but gave up on it because it was a little boring and the plot wasn't building up to anything. It felt like I was back in my elementary school library, honestly. I'm going to pick it up again, and hope that it gets more complex and interesting :) I also started These Shallow Graves last year, but had to stop because it kept reminding me of my own dad's death, and it kept getting mentioned over and over again. Here's to hoping the book can move on from how he died and get  on with the mystery of why he died.

I suppose I should also address what gets me so behind on not only reading, but reviewing as well. I figure I'm behind on reading because I'm in constant stress of trying to make money, as I'm still unemployed and only rely on my little etsy shop for all income. My etsy is incredibly slow, especially this time of year, so I'm constantly trying to think of new things to make and add to my shop. I'm still working on a few ideas, but this takes up time and more importantly energy to want to read and review (which of course, doesn't make money.)
What I do read, I feel like I just want to read for enjoyment and now worry about taking notes from it, and constantly analyzing things for reviewing. I wish I didn't have to constantly worry about making money, because I sincerely miss blogging on my site. I do a lot of "blogging" on tumblr (ok, mainly just posting my book photography and reblogging other's) which is nice because I like the community, but it hardly feels the same as how it use to be here (or how it was before I transitioned from blogspot/blogger to Wordpress.)

I would love any and all suggestions on getting back into regular blogging while not having to stress about money.
