Monthly Rewind ~ April 2017

Posted May 4, 2017 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Monthly Rewind / 36 Comments

Monthly Rewind is exactly what it sounds like. A post to summarize the past month: Books read, my quick takes on them, top posts of the month, what I have been watching and what’s coming up. I will be linking up to Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s Monthly Wrap Up Round Up.

Break from Books
  • April was kind of a tough month but it did get better as it wrapped up.
  • The kids started tennis lessons and they were adorable.
  • We had a lovely Easter with family.
  • The new season of Catastrophe came out on Amazon and binged the crap out of it.
  • I was still knitting just not as much.
  • My exercise got back on track towards the end of the month.

Tentative April TBR


Will Try and Squeeze In

What’s Ahead

May doesn’t hold too much for me. Just Mother’s Day and some kids parties. I am hoping the nice weather we have had keeps up and we get a lot of time outside. I have been doing well with excercising so I hope I can carry that into May as well. I am trying Le Tote – a subscription clothing box and we will see how that goes!

How was your April? What was your favorite book from the month?

  1. Sorry to hear that April was a tough month… glad it turned around, though. My sister knits and trie to teach me. It did not go well. LOL I just saw an author I follow on INstagram rave about The Light We Lost. I immediately checked it out on GR and loved the synopsis so I’ll probably give it a try eventually. I’m hoping I enjoy it more than you did. Attachments… I need to do a reread of that one, too. It’s tied for my favorite RR book. I just love it.

  2. Tennis lessons sound like the cutest thing ever! I’ve never really thought about them but I think my son would enjoy tennis. He’s really coordinated but doesn’t love group sports so that might work. Sorry April was tough but hopefully May will be more relaxing and better. I have a Le Tote subscription and really like it. It’s a fun way to try out different things and expand my closet a little. I do have a hard time finding things in summer because there doesn’t seem to be that many light weight options but they’ve gotten better in the last year so I’m hoping this summer goes better. If not I’ll just put it on hold because I love it the rest of the year.

    • I would never had thought about tennis unless my daughter’s teaches taught it. It is really cute though. I remembered you liked Le Tote. They had some cute things and I am excited. I am glad there is an option to put on hold!

  3. Hey you!

    I was just told about the show Catastrophe so that’s on my list to watch but I’m glad to see that you like it.

    Looks like you had a fabulous reading month (any month with Dean DiLaurentis is a fabulous reading month)

    I’ve got my fingers crossed that you’ll have a better May, Grace. Hugs!!

  4. I am sorry that April started out tough for you. I hope May looks up. You did really good on the reading and blogging front. I really need to fit in more exercise. I would walk more but I have more dogs than I can walk by myself and my husband always wants to call it quits way before I do. My teenager acts like I am punishing her when I make her go with me. I need to work in a few walks all by myself I suppose.

    Happy Mother’s Day!! I’m hoping to receive books for my Mother’s Day gifts. I just received Goodbye Days and want to read it soon. Your May TBR list looks really fun and 12 books is awesome to read in a month.
