Monthly Rundown: April 2015

Posted May 1, 2015 by Bonnie in Monthly Rundown / 2 Comments

So April kind of sucked. Life got in the way big time in the way of reading and I somehow managed to only read 9 books the entire month which is pretty obscene. I still managed to post 14 reviews though. Not sure how that works and can’t be bothered to figure it out. lol It is what it is.

Favorite of the Month: The Stars of Summer by Tara Dairman
This book is beyond adorable and is quickly becoming an all-time favorite series. Sure it’s middle grade but Gladys is the absolute cutest and she cooks the most delicious sounding foods!

Least FavoriteThe Sunlit Night by Rebecca Dinerstein
I actually had to read this for a review for a magazine publication so it was pretty crappy I disliked this as much as I did. I feel I’m just not cut out for ‘literary fiction’.

Biggest SurpriseWhen We Were Animals by Joshua Gaylord
Remember the zombie book The Reapers are the AngelsSame author. When I learned that I went crazy to get myself a copy. Most impressive story. Strange. But very impressive.

Biggest DisappointmentAn Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I had crazy high hopes for this one and maybe my expectations just got the best of me. Either way, this one was nothing like I anticipated.

Reading Plans for May

May marks the second month of Bookish Bingo and since I accomplished filling only 5 squares, I’ve got some catching up to do. I’ve got some exciting reads lined up though. Yep. I’m binging Scarlet. So. Excited.

    • hahaha Yeah 9 sounds like a lot but is not my normal amount read. I work like 55+ hours a week now so free-time is not happening often.
      I have high hopes for Undertow and more Sarah J. Maas is always welcome. 😀
