April 2021 Reading Wrap-Up

You can buy all of these books from Amazon.

This month was definitely a reading month for me. I don’t think I’ve read as many books this month as I have done in any other month before, hence why I decided to make this blog post. I’ve made a definite dent in my Spring 2021 TBR pile and I wanted to share with you guys today about all the books I’ve been reading this month.

Women Don’t Owe You Pretty by Florence Given:

I’ve seen a few people post this on their Instagram’s and I’d also read a few reviews on blogs before I decided to purchase it. This book definitely opened up a door to me to non-fiction books and I’ve since purchased more non-fiction. I really enjoyed reading this book despite not being used to reading informational books. I’d definitely recommend this book as it covers such important topics such as feminism, lbgtq+, along with privilege and so much more.

Notes On A Nervous Planet by Matt Haig:

I’d read Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig and I really liked that book so it made sense for me to purchase Notes on A Nervous Planet and I’m glad I did. The short, to-the-point chapters made it an easy read and I really liked what it had to say about topics such as anxiety in the modern world.

Good Vibes, Good Life by Vex King:

Another book that I’d seen a lot of people talk highly of was Good Vibes, Good Life by Vex King. As an introduction to self-help it’s key reading and it covers topics such as self-love, the law of attraction, raising your vibration and so much more. I’ve reviewed this book on my blog if you want to take a look at it.

Healing Is The New High by Vex King:

Vex King’s latest release is all about overcoming emotional turmoil and I found it extremely helpful. It’s full of information on how to best help yourself as well as practices delving into your limiting beliefs and where they come from as well as meditation practices. I didn’t do all the practises as, personally, I’m not yet ready for them. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and it left me feeling more motivated to make positive changes in my life. I especially enjoyed the visualisation exercise found in one of the later chapters.

101 Essays That Will Change The Way You Think by Brianna Wiest:

I’m still currently reading this book, but I know I’ll finish it within the next few days so I’ve included it anyway. I’m really enjoying this book so far as it’s definitely giving me stuff to think about. I really enjoy the format of the book being short chapters as it makes it great to just pick up, read a bit, get your thoughts going and then put down for a little while.

Onto poetry:

The Mermaid’s Voice Return In This One by Amanda Lovelace:

Not my favourite poetry book I’ve ever read, but I enjoy reading different types of poetry to see how other people go about expressing themselves. I love the concept behind this collection of books – the princess saves herself in this one, the witch doesn’t burn in this one and the mermaid’s voice returns in this one, but it’s not my favourite poetry.

Pillow Thoughts 2: Healing The Heart by Courtney Peppernell:

I‘d actually reviewed the Pillow Thoughts book series before and then I realised a few weeks ago when I was looking at my goodreads that I hadn’t actually finished the 2nd book in the collection. I really enjoyed this book series as the poetry is so relatable and warming. I definitely recommend adding it to your TBR if you’re into poetry.

The Moon Will Shine For Us Too by Jennae Cecelia:

I’ve read a lot of Jennae Cecelia’s work over the past few months and I enjoyed them all, some more than others sure, but this is one of my favourites by Jennae Cecelia. I finished this book in about 20 minutes, I only wish it was a longer book.

So those are the books I read in April. If you have any recommendations for poetry books please let me know in the comments below as I can’t find any I like on Amazon that I haven’t already read.
