April Wrap-Up

I can’t believe we’ve reached the end of yet another month. In just 2 days time it’ll be May, although the weather doesn’t show it unfortunately. Reading-wise April has been a productive month for me, as I managed to read 5 books and 1 short story. When I first set myself a reading challenge back in 2011 I managed to read 20 books in the course of one year. And now, only 4 months into 2013, I’ve already managed to read the same amount of books as I did in the whole of 2011 so I’m pretty pleased with that 🙂

The books I read this month:

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie (to be reviewed)
The Boleyn King by Laura Andersen
Fast Times in Palestine by Pamela J. Olson
Rose of Fire by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Who on Earth is Tom Baker? by Tom Baker

This month I had also intended to visit the town of Cluny, because I love history and it’s supposed to be a really lovely town, but due to the bad weather I didn’t manage to actually go there. So better luck next month I guess. You can read more about Cluny and its historical heritage here and here.

I did manage to visit Lyon last week. It’s a beautiful and lively city neatly wrapped around the rivers Rhône and Saône. It has lots of wonderful shops, beautiful architecture, and an abundance of nice cafés and restaurants with delicious food. The weather was beautiful that day, so I managed to get some lovely shots with my iPhone (I’d forgotten to bring my camera).

So that’s all from me for this month. I’m already curious to see what May will have in store for me 🙂

  1. I should add The Shadows of The Wind to my tbr pile. So many people have said great things about it. Ohhh your pictures are so beautiful and the weather seems to have been great!! I know that Lyon has a pretty good football team. I can’t believe four months of this year has already passed. It’s gone by so quickly! But hopefully the weather will be nice soon. Do you have any plans for May?

    1. Shadow of the Wind is one of the most beautiful books I’ve read in a long time, if not ever, so I definitely urge you to read it. I think you’d enjoy it as well 🙂

      The weather was really great, but in just 2 days time temperatures have dropped from 26C to only 4C, which is just insane (and I now have a massive cold thanks to the sudden change in temperature). Lyon is a wonderful city, and so beautiful, though I don’t know much about football. My cousin is a big supporter of their football team though.

      So far I don’t have any plans for May other than working (just got myself a new job), and more reading of course 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
