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. Your finished copy of Firelight is lovely. I still need to read my ARC. Happy reading!

  2. I LOVED this vlog so HARD! I think you should swear every week, because I can’t stop laughing, its like staring at The Duff only FUNNIER!

  3. Kathy Martin says

    Nice mailbox! I have a number of the books you bought on my TBR stack. I see you read The Replacement. I got it this week and am eager to get to it. My mailbox is here. Happy reading!

  4. Nice loot, waiting to get my own copy of Firelight but will buy it… Lots of books to read April, enjoy!

    My Mailbox this week

    jackie ^_^

  5. Awesome books this week! I love the cover for Firelight πŸ™‚ I need to buy it, but UGH there are so many good books out right now.

  6. Looks like you got some great books! I always end up with a ton of books when I go to library sales. I agree that $2 books are just too good to pass up. I’m a new follower and here is my mailbox.

  7. Hi,
    I’m a first time visitor to your blog, but when I saw the haul that you’ve listed, I had to listen to your vlog! I’ll be back to look for some of the reviews of the books that you mentioned.

    Happy Reading!

  8. OK drop everything else you are reading and read (in order)

    1. Whale Talk by Chris Crutcher (you don’t even know how excited I am that you got this book. You are going to love it)

    2. The Disreptuable History of Frankie Landau-Banks (Awesome book! Frankie is so cool. Feminist and cool. And she makes up words. Thus she is awesomesauce).

    Oh and I guess Firelight should be next because everyone raves about it πŸ™‚

    I really really want to read the Duff. I need to work on that.

    • I’ve actually already read Firelight, and quite enjoyed it!

      I can’t freakin wait to read Whale Talk and Disreputable History. I think they will be on my October reads. Right now though, I am reading Absolutely True Diary Of A Part Time Indian, which I don’t really want to drop πŸ™

  9. Well you may not be reading but you are buying some wonderful books! :0 They look good! Enjoy!
