Potential April Reads

Potential April Reads

Hi everyone! Hope we’re all doing fabulously on this Friday. I thought I’d pop in and talk about some of the books I might be picking up this month once I finish my current read. I’m not calling this a TBR because I don’t want to feel obligated to read any of these or feel as though I can’t (or perhaps more accurately, shouldn’t) read something not included here. So potential reads it is.

Good morning, everyone! Saturday is the 7th annual Boston Teen Author Festival and I am EXCITED. This year is the 3rd time I’ll be attending and it’s sure to be just as amazing as the past two years have been! Admittedly, there are not as many authors attending that I’ve read this year, but that’s probably because I have been seriously slacking with my reading this year. However, that does not mean that I’m not super excited to attend – I definitely am! I figured today I would talk a little bit about the festival ahead of the big day and try to explain to you all why the heck I’m so excited. Be sure to keep an eye out for a wrap-up of the day too – that’ll be posted sometime within the next week or two!

As I started trying to figure out for myself why that was, I figured I might as well make a post about it and share my thoughts with all of you, as well as get some input from my lovely friends and readers, too.
