I’m really happy I read 7 books this month! Things are still moving slowly, and that’s okay. I’m getting the books read that I need too and enjoying a handful of others. Excited for the second half of the year.

Y’all. This month started out so great, then I got really sick for a few weeks (NOT COVID, don’t worry y’all) and the last half just plummeted. I’m not in an awful book slump where I can’t even get myself to read a few pages a day.
I know its not a huge ordeal to stop reading for a bit, and this too shall pass, but it’s still weird not reading so many books. I’m focusing solely on the ARCs I’ve already received and titles that I’ve already pre-ordered so I can try to at least keep up with those.
I dd manage 17 books in the first chunk of April, and some good titles at that!
My favorites this month were:King of the South, Dark Skies, Voyager, Elantris and a A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder.
My least favorites were:The Kingdom of Back, The Two Lives of Lydia Bird and The Honey-Don’t List.

There we have it! My reads for April. Were any of these books you read too? See some favorites? Lets talk in the comments!
Does March feel like it’s been going on forever? Even more than January? While practicing social distancing for the last 2+ weeks, I honestly haven’t seen the inside of anything but my house. Hence, a lot of reading happened.
I broke my monthly record and it 26 books in never-ending March. Unfortunately, I also dolled out more 2 stars than I ever have too. But you win some, you lose some! Still plenty of good reads.
My favorites this month: House of Earth and Blood (NO SURPRISE), Undercover Bromance, Dragonfly in Amber, Until it Fades, The Giver of Stars, A Voice in the Wind, and Aurora Rising.
My least favorites this month:Five Dark Fates, Lucky Caller, Of Curses and Kisses and The Stars We Steal
