April Wrap Up

apr16wrap up.png

I want to start this post off with a celebration because look at what Inked In Pages achieved this month!

50 Follows!   200 Likes


Also yay for the accidental colour matching of the gif to the badges!

Both of these achievements seem crazy to me because I started this blog about mid March which wasn’t that long ago. So to have gotten that many followers and likes in only a month and a half is insane to me! Thank you so much to every single one of you for being so warm and welcoming.

Now, onto your regularly scheduled monthly wrap up.

What I hauled

Guess who managed to actually stick to their book buying ban this month?! It’s probably mostly because I did a lot of shopping and spent too much money on things that weren’t books… But let’s pretend it’s because I have good self control.

While I didn’t purchase any books, I was lucky enough to win two giveaways. I got a copy of Sarah J. Maas’s The Assassin’s Blade from a Tumblr giveaway and now my Throne of Glass collection is complete. I also won an ARC of This Raging Light by Estelle Laure in a Twitter giveaway hosted by Aila @ One Way or An Author.


I also downloaded While My Eyes Were Closed by Linda Green and The Only Exception by Magan Vernon. They were both free from the iBooks store so downloading them doesn’t count as breaking my book buying ban, right?

What I read

I didn’t do as much reading as I did last month. I’ve been on such a roll with reading the past few months that I’m surprised I haven’t been hit with a reading slump yet. I’ve probably jinxed myself by saying that though!

Other shenanigans

I got to see one of my favourite bands, twenty one pilots, for the fourth and fifth times at the sideshows they played in Sydney while they were here for Groovin the Moo (a regional music festival in Australia). I will never not be amazed by their live shows because they put on such an amazing performance. If you don’t know who they are (and I’m sure you do, their song Stressed Out has been playing everywhere recently) you should definitely go check them out.

How did April go for you? Did you do much reading?  Did you spend more than you should’ve on books?

    Congrats on your blog achievements! 🙂
    I did not read as much as I wish I had but I got lots of new books, which is exciting because I had never bought or gotten that many before. it sounds like I bought an entire library, haha. But I’d never been able to get many books before and now that my blog has taken over a big chunk of my time (and life, let’s be honest) it feels great to add new titles to my shelves, either virtual or physical. One of them is the second book in the Throne of Glass series, I finished the first in April and can’t wait to get to the second in May.
    Yay for seeing your favorite band. I’m waiting for a friend to come back from Australia to talk him into doing new gigs because I miss our nights at the pub xD

    Ahh, congrats Vivian!! You seriously deserve it ♥

    Great reading month!! And yay for sticking to your book buying ban!

    Also I’ve only seen Twenty One Pilots once like two years ago when the opened for Paramore, but they were so amazing. Their live presence was absolutley incredble especially considering back in 2014 no one really know who they were but with their performance it felt like they were headlining. I’m so glad I had the chance to see them at least once, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to add to it eventually haha. So glad you had a great time 😀
