April has ended and I can honestly say – I felt like I didn’t do a whole lot of reading this month, even though I clocked in at 10 books…
I suppose it’s because a lot of the books I read this month just felt really long…or took me a while to finish. But it’s all done now.
Here’s the breakdown:
Book Rating/Page Count:
- Total Pages: 2,963
- Total Books: 10
- Total Read Harder Challenge Books: 4 (Hidden Figures, The Man in the High Castle, Home Fire, & The Whale Rider)
- Total Reading Women Challenge Books: 2 (Hidden Figures & Home Fire)
- Total Our Shared Shelf Books: 1 (Fierce Femmes & Notorious Liars)
I definitely made a concerted effort to up my Read Harder Challenge reading. I’m glad I decided to double up and read books that applied to both Read Harder and Reading Women. I covered a lot more ground that way.
Most of the books I read this month were pretty “meh” but I did really dislike one of the books and really love several books. I’m hoping next months batch really blows me away. I love reading books that light a fire in me or spark new interests.
Favorite Book This Month:
I really, really loved Hoang’s follow up to The Kiss Quotient. It was such a cute story and I had such a blast reading it! It’s definitely one of the best romance novels I’ve read ever and I’m probably going to be re-reading it because I enjoyed it so much!
Least Favorite Book This Month:
I was deeply disappointed by this book. I haven’t posted my review yet, so I won’t go into it too much, but I was expecting something better based on the premise and was really let down. I didn’t like the characters, I didn’t like the story, I didn’t like the writing. It failed me on numerous counts. Stay tuned for the review. It’s going to be interesting…
