I am very sad to say that I have had to go back to a blended wrap up and TBR because I have once again had a disappointing reading month in April. Admittedly, I was aware that this month wouldn’t be amazing for reading, as the main priority was always going to be organising my house move and making it my home. That is one thing, I definitely did achieve.
So over the course of April, I only read two short stories, both from a collection on my Kindle. ‘Candace’ and ‘Alicia’ by Michelle Miller are from a collection of short stories all about the power of women. I downloaded them for free on my Kindle, although I’m not sure if they are still on the deal, I really do recommend you checking them out. While I loved ‘Alicia’, ‘Candace’ just felt like it was lacking. I know they are short stories, but it just felt like it was still just a scene within a story. There are still six more short stories within the collection, so will hopefully get through them all in the next few months.
With April behind me, I am going to hit the ground running again in May. I have my comfy sofa back to be my main reading chair, and I’ve set up a cute little TBR shelf in my bedroom. Although I still have loads of books to bring over from my Dads, I have loads here that I can not wait to pick up.
I don’t want to try and push myself too much, so I think I am only going to pick out four books to try and get to this month. The first will definitely be my current read, ‘My Mother’s Daughter’ by Ann O’Loughlin; I will be reviewing this on the 14th of May, so keep your eyes open for that. This is a family saga based around the idea of babies being mixed up at birth, its currently a better read than I was expecting.
Another that I have already started on my Kindle is ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ by Kevin Kwan. This got a lot of hype not that long ago, and from what I have read of it already, I can completely see why. So far its a fun, easy, light hearted read, perfect for reading around doing this in the house.
Next is a book I have had on a few TBR’s now, and that is a reread of ‘Truthwitch’ by Susan Dennard. I read this a while back, and really want to continue on with the series, but first I need to refresh myself on what happened. I believe I read the audiobook before, so this time I am going to actually pick up the physical book.
Finally this leads us to the twitter poll. I am sorry that I forgot to ever actually put the poll up for April, so a couple of these books are carry overs. So this month you have the choice between; ‘Obsidio’ by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, ‘Library of Souls’ by Ransom Rigs, and ‘Ruin and Rising’ by Leigh Bardugo. Make sure to head to twitter to have your say.
What are you planning to read this month?
