What I Read April 2017

I had a pretty good reading month.  Work does pick up this time of year but I continue to stay on track and enjoy my reading time.  My husband and I are still reading one book a month together and that has been fun!  

I participated in Erin's 6.0 Challenge from January to April reading 10 books that fit into specific categories.  It was fun and I look forward to the next challenge.

Book Review: Open When... Letters to Lift Your Spirits

Looking for a Gift Idea?
9781607749646 (450×256)


 I loved the size, artwork and uniqueness of Open When. If someone you love has been sick, had a new baby, graduated from school, gotten married, or you need a way to say "thank you" Open When would make a sweet gift.  I enjoyed opening up each letter and reading through the special messages.  
 I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
