Since Pyras and Dracas have spent three months on my tbr-list and I failed to read them, I had a book-buying ban in May. This is my worst imaginable punishment because I’m totally addicted to buying books. Still, somehow I sort of managed to stay true.

That’s what happened in April, because I thought that Easter would be a great excuse to buy tonnes of new books. Well, it’s my one and only treat after all.
In April, I hardly had the time to read thanks to university. Admittedly, my reading list was utopian and hardly manageable, but I always like to plan more and hope that I would take it as an incentive to read more. Now, I have to transfer the still utopian list into May, whether I want it or not. I hope that I will have more time to read due to the holidays and can work off a few books at least.
