April was a nice month. I got to spend more time outside. Which I truly love. My flower garden is doing spectacular this year too. I bought a bunch of new flowers to try out. My son helped me pick out the flowers. The blue flower plant is the one he really wanted, since blue is his favorite color. As you can see I got them planted and they are doing spectacular in the garden. My rose bush is also coming back to life thanks to the Miracle-Gro LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food I got to spray on my plants.
I also bought some set cushions for my plastic chairs outside. Now everyone has a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the backyard and garden.

Well it’s March and the TBR Take Control Challenge has started. If you would like to join or want more information then stop on by the Caffeinated Reviewer, Click Here, to check it out.
I deiced to go with books in my box of books or ones I picked up at the library to read for this challenge. I’m planning on listen to or read 10 books from my TBR pile, Goodreads TBR List!
Here are some books/audios I picked out on my list.
Now I might add others or not even get to these, but this is what I set up for my goal to get me started.
I was born and raised in Northern Indiana. I’m an outdoor sun loving reader living near San Fransisco. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. I’m the owner, reviewer, and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. My favorite animals are horses & dogs. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy. My favorite shifters are dragons!
