This month has been absolutely crazy– I hosted a challenge for the 24 Read-a-thon, was featured by another blog, read for ARC April, started listening to audiobooks, got into multiple comics/webcomics, and was retweeted by Jesse Williams. It was a great month for experimentation, and I’m hoping some of these things stick with me in future months. Check out my Book and a Beverage feature here, if you haven’t already! I talk about what I’m currently reading, and what’s coming up in May!
Teas I’ve been obsessed with:
Natural Hibiscus, by The Republic of Tea: Surprisingly, someone left two full containers of this tea out for grabs at work this month, and I’ve been obsessed ever since! Its naturally caffeine-free, and is fruity without being incredibly sweet.
Egyptian Mint, by Zhena’s Gypsy Tea: To be honest, I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to green tea. I’d like to be the kind of person who says they enjoy authentic green tea every day, but that’s just not me. This minty green tea, though? Perfect. It’s one of the few teas I have that come in a bag, making it easy to drink at work.

It feels like I wasn’t as productive as I could have been this month, but writing this post showed that I got a little more done than I thought! I still am in the middle of two ARCs, and have one more review to post from Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon!
