Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2014




I seem to have picked up the pace this month! Which, quite frankly, is a relief. Last Saturday was Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon, so that certainly helped me plow through a few books - a couple of shorter ones, but hey, they count!

I'd say the real high point for me this month was The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. I went into it without any expectations, and was transported to a world that, despite being full of real life, horrible events, was also full of love, magic (not literally) and wonder. It has been awhile since I've been so transported by a book, or wanted to highlight so many passages. It wasn't a long read, but it was an intensely satisfying one.

Here are some of the reviews I posted in April:

Other things you might have missed this month:

    And I managed to avoid any April Fools pranking! I'm feeling pretty good about that.

    What did you all get up to in the past month? What was your best read of April? Share in the comments!

    1. You read a complete series in one month, great job :D I tend to struggle with finishing series in one lately.. I'm not sure what it is. I hope to pick up Champion soon to finish this series too. I hope you have a fantastic May!

      1. Haha! Yeah, it took some doing. I think if a series really grips me I can finish it in a few weeks. This one took a bit more work. What are you thinking of the first couple of books so far?

        Thanks - you too!! :)
