Top Ten Items On My Bookish Bucket List | Top Five Books For New Readers

Basically because I am on my deathbed (not really, just over-exhausted) I never edited and uploaded a vlog that I made for Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke And The Bookish) yesterday. I also decided to expand my vlog participation and take part in Top Five Wednesday hosted by Ginger Reads Lainey (you can find all the participants here)

And so, now I am loading both videos today, hope you enjoy some bookish chatter and such.


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. I loved your videos, April. So for the TTT, one – I would love to go to Prince Edward Island, as well. A coworker of mine, and her daughter, drove up there, a few years ago, and she had nothing but amazing things to say about her experiences. I think she said that they listened to Anne of Green Gables on audio during their drive, and I thought that was a brilliant idea!

    I also have a confession – I don’t hate the Twilight books either. In fact, I actually kind of like the first book. The other ones are okay. I actually get kind of annoyed when people act like anyone who liked Twilight is an idiot. I mean, it’s totally cool if you don’t like it, but respect people’s opinions, right?

    I think you would make a wonderful librarian! The kids and teens would love you.

    And I just love what you said about Harry Potter, and I feel the same way, too.

  2. You’re continuing w/ the vlogs, yay! Please get going w/ GOT series, so worth it. I started listening to the audio books back in September. I’m now on A Dance A With Dragons, just have the epilogue to finish but I’m now huddled in a corner crying because of what just happened πŸ™ My bookish bucket list would consist of reading the entire works of an author like Brandon Sanderson.

  3. So, people you want to meet…Rae Carson, Stephen King – and me and Jen. Haha, I love the company I’m in there πŸ˜‰

    I want to meet you too – preferably WITH Stephen King! I’m sorry Oklahoma is in the middle of nowhere. Sigh.

    The thought of actually reading through all of my unread books basically makes me laugh. I just don’t know if it’ll ever happen.

  4. Hey April,

    This is the first time I’ve watched your vlogs; I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to understand your accent (I’m British. Welsh to be specific, and I usually struggle with accents). I also have hearing difficulties, and currently have a sinus infection, which makes it worse, but I could understand almost all of what you were saying, which is brilliant! I will definitely be watching future vlogs. It’s so much more personal than typing up a list. Thanks for doing them. πŸ™‚

    Also, two of the books you recommended I have added to my Goodreads list. πŸ™‚ The Phantom Tollbooth and The Girl Who…

  5. Prince Edward Island is gorgeous. I’ve been the past two summers. I stayed at Green Gables Cottages and it’s quite a decent price. The red sand beaches are great and you can go see Anne the Musical πŸ™‚
