In Review: April 2018

In Review posts are a chance for me to catch my breath, note that I am actually making progress towards my Goodreads reading goal, and give each month’s blog posts a little extra love. (I normally post these on the last day of the month, but yesterday got away from me, so it’s going up today instead.)

After a truly hellish few months, April felt like the sun breaking through the clouds for me. I didn’t read or blog as much as I would like, but I still managed to break my own record for most posts written in a month (12!). I read some great books, and respected my own time and energy enough to set aside one I loathed. I even updated my review archive to include archives by genre and star rating as well as title.

I can’t wait to see what May brings! In the meantime, for your skimming pleasure, here’s my April in Review.

I read 6 books this month:

  • White Chrysanthemum by Mary Lynn Bracht (Goodreads)

  • Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen (Goodreads)

    1. Yes, I really enjoyed it! I’m writing the review today and it’ll go live tomorrow or Thursday. I’ll have to work backwards to A Prayer for the Stolen sometime because Jennifer Clement is fantastically gifted.
