About

Oy! I’m April (she/her). Apt descriptions of April include: high school student, night owl, and cow print enthusiast. With a tbr taller than I am, I have made it my personal goal to find diverse books to not only read but highlight (and scream about) both on my blog and bookstagram!

A quick heads up before we begin, I’m going to be talking to myself by making up questions and answering them. No, I do not talk to myself a lot. Well actually, it depends on how you define “a lot.” Anyway… let’s hop right in.

Uh, who are you? That is the question, isn’t it? Well, as a high school student, my favorite ways to practice teen angst are by singing (read: yelling) All Too Well while driving down the highway and picking up sad books to cry and scream about on the internet. Life goals include wearing dramatic gowns with a hidden dagger underneath and owning a library with a slide-y ladder. Did I mention I read? Yeah, I do that a lot. As a chronic overuser of em dashes and fan of the Oxford comma, I probably have too many opinions on punctuation that I put to good use as I write like I’m running out of time. Incorporating random song lyrics into everyday conversation (preferably from musicals and in large quantities) is definitely a side hobby. Alrighty! I think we are now acquainted. It was very nice to meet you!

What genre is your favorite? Ah! I love all of them so much *internal anguish and general indecisiveness* Though I have to say, something about the sharp voice and fresh humor of young adult contemporary just brings me an unparalleled amount of joy. Retelling and fantasy are definitely up there on the list too. So yeah, that doesn’t really narrow it down much, does it?

When will you be posting? I will be posting on the full moon of every month, specifically at 3:13 AM Central Time. To view the post you must drink exactly 4 ounces of liquid gold. Then you must howl at the moon like a wolf while doing the robot in slow motion. Ok, that is a touch dramatic. Basically, the goal is to post once a week, because, you know, school takes up most of my time. Or maybe additional days if I happen to be possessed by the ghost of inspiration.

I am reading and reviewing a lot of my stuff in the late hours of the night. I am running on nothing but caffeine and the fumes from the glorious combination of ink on paper. I will most likely sound like a rambling nerd with a metaphor addiction. Just putting that out there. Interpret as you will.

Also, I am not at fault for any late-night blog post-binge reading or reading induced insomnia. I’m going to put that out there too. I hope you decide to stick around! I’d love to chat (read: fangirl) about books with y’all!

Oh! Before you go, you can also find me at @bookedtillmidnight on Instagram or @themonthenthusiast on Twitter.
