April wrap up

April was a little slower in terms of reading, because of my sisters illness, but I still managed to get a fair few books read. To be exact: 14 books, making a total of 55 books read this year (well, actually it's already 56, but that book counts towards May!). That's a total of 19,708 pages. Holy shiz, that's almost 20,000 pages! *stares in awe at the number* And yes, I know that 55 books is a ridiculous amount of books and that I'm way ahead of my reading challenge, but I love escaping in books. And I have to say: I've gotten better and better in selecting books to pick up, which means that I haven't read a book that has gotten less than a 3 star rating on GoodReads (big YAY for my newfound selecting abilities - my bank account thanks you). Anyway, here's my (incomplete) wrap up video!

(I forgot to mention No and Me by Delphine de Vigan. Whoops!)

So.. My favorite of this month.. Of course I *loved* The Last Olympian, because well duh, it's Percy! But besides that, I really really loved Sing me to Sleep (bawled my eyes out!) and Nevermore. But honestly, it's been a great month of reading again. There's not a single book that disappointed me and that alone is amazing. I loved Anna, and St. Claire, but I also loved Peeta, Dean, Clary, Eric and of course Georgia. I can't imagine having a better month in reading, but then again.. I wasn't expecting to top March, either.

So tell me.. What books have you read this month? What was your favorite? And have you read any books that disappointed you?


  1. I want to read Anna and the French Kiss!

    I'm ahead of my goal too (but not as much as you!) and will probably have to increase to 75.

  2. Wow!
    Well done on all those books =)

  3. I just remembered I forgot to actually answer your question xD

    My favourites books were The Handmaid's Tale and Between Shades of Gray. My least favourites were The Betrayal of Maggie Blair and Bumped.

  4. Yay! You did great, I think I only read like 10 books in April, I've been so scared to know the exact number I haven't read it.

    My favorites this month were: City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare, The Old Man & the Sea by Hemingway, Plague by Michael Grant, Red Glove by Holly Black & We'll Always have Summer by Jenny Han. :D That's like half the books.

    And for my disappointments, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, I know it's a classic and all, and usually I love classics, but I dreaded this one. It was all very cliché. I didn't like it.

    Oh well, good luck this month!

  5. You have read so many books this year! I'm hearing so many good thngs about The Last Olympian :)
