About April (Books&Wine)

April is in her 30s and created Good Books And Good Wine. She works for a non-profit. April always has a book on hand. In her free time she can be found binge watching The Office with her husband and toddler, spending way too much time on Pinterest or exploring her neighborhood.


  1. Holy cow that's a lot of books, lol!!

    I liked what you said about not being a loser and knowing what people are talking about, lol! I feel the same way a lot of times. But there's just too much to read everything!

  2. Jessica (BookLover) says

    I don't wanna be a loser and not know what people are talking about! lol
    I still want to pick up City of Bones. Actually, I want to pick up a lot of books!

  3. Hmm. I mixed on this one. I love Jane Austen, but Mansfield is my least fave (by a loooooong shot. It's the only one I haven't read more than once, though I do own it and have been meaning to give it another shot). Also, I am one of the naysayers for City of Bones. I read it and it was okay enough for me to read #2 (and I likely will read #3), but the writing is seriously flawed in my opinion.
    As for the rest, looks like a good haul. I think I'm going to end up being powerless in the face of killer unicorns too. Plus, as I've said before, I am a sucker for a good cover.

  4. You got a lot of books. I want to read Rampant, it sounds really good. City of Bones is amazing! Absolutely love her books. Hope you enjoy all your books.

    Happy reading!

  5. My speakers have gone so I can't hear any sound on vlogs. 🙁 That's a good list though. I'm desperate to read Rampant – a unicorn book that actually sounds good! I loved City of Bones too.

    I have to say, I found Mansfield Park pretty dry. It seemed a lot more sombre than other Jane Austen novels… one of those books where I feel like it's an achievement when I finish it.

    You got a bunch!

    Happy reading.
