A quick glance at what we’ve been up to this month!

 

LISA’S LATEST HAPPENINGS

I’m so excited to say that I had a really great reading month!  FINALLY!!  I haven’t read this many books in a month in a very long time.  And I’m even more happy that I really enjoyed every one of them!!  I even had several five-star reads this month.  April wins for awesome book month for me!

How has your reading been going?  Have you found any new and awesome books lately?

FAVORITE OF THE MONTH

Alex, Approximately

It was really hard picking only one favorite this month, but after quite a bit of consideration I just had to go with Alex, Approximately.

MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO

A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3) Until It Fades The Names They Gave Us

BECCA’S LATEST HAPPENINGS

When it comes to reading each month I have taken on the quality over quantity method! The truth is I just can’t read as many books as I used to and that’s OK! So I lowered by Good Reads Goal (so it would stop stressing me out!) and I choose what I really want to read next. I am not keeping up with ARC’s as much as I would like but I am doing the best I can 🙂 After all, reading is for enjoyment and is not a job right? I read 6 books this month and I really enjoyed them all! I’ll take that as a win!

FAVORITE OF THE MONTH

How to Make a Wish

How to Make a Wish was such a beautiful and emotional story and it really touched my heart on such a deep level so I have to choose that as my favorite 🙂

BOOKS READ

Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3) This is War (The Checkmate Duet #1; Travis & Viola #1) This is Love (The Checkmate Duet #2; Travis & Viola #2) This is Reckless (Checkmate #3; Drew & Courtney #1) This is Effortless (The Checkmate Duet #4; Drew & Courtney #2) How to Make a Wish The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)

BOOK CRUSH OF THE MONTH

This is Reckless (Checkmate #3; Drew & Courtney #1)

As you can see I binge read the entire Checkmate series in April and I loved every single page! Travis and Drew definitely both make my Book Boyfriend list! If I have to pick just one of them, then it has to be Drew. I’m a sucker for a good guy… and a police officer 😉

MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO

A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3) The Crown's Fate (The Crown's Game, #2) Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices, #2)

    I had to come to the realization that I couldn’t read as much as I did my first year blogging. It’s hard because I want to, and I feel disappointed in myself that I don’t read as many each y

  • Thanks for the shout out girls!

    Lisa: I’m dyyyyying to get my hands on Alex, Approximately as soon as possible. I adored Night Owls and just need more.

    Becca: How to Make a Wish is high on my priority this month so I hope I love it just as much.
