April Wrap Up & May TBR

So, as per usual, things this month did not go according to plan. But I feel like that's okay because it's pretty much a given, right? And also, I read 9 books this month. Whaaaaat.

GOODREADS: 34/50 [+9]
ALPHABET: 17/26 [+2]
SERIES: 4 complete [+1]; 7 ongoing [+2]


Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3) by Laini Taylor

Uglies (Uglies #1) by Scott Westerfeld
172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad
Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick

With the exception of the Laini Taylor book (which is still on order at my public library and I am first in the queue and I might scream if I don't get my hands on this book ASAP) I am sort of putting myself on a library ban.

Let me explain. I was out of town a few times in April and on two of those occassions I went to Chapters and bought a ridiculous number of books. Like, I acquired 10 books on two trips. And then I went to Comic Expo and bought a pile of graphic novels. And the space on my bookshelf is actually becoming an issue again. So. I feel like I need to make a serious dent in my physical collection before I move on.

I also did something interesting this month where I basically marathoned a trilogy from start to finish. I'd never done that before really. And I think after I post a series review I'll probably be making a post on the marathon aspect as well. It was intriguing and I have some thoughts!

So yeah. How did your April go? My calendar has freed up again, so I can't wait to get my blogging back to semi-normal. Let me know what you read and we can chat in the comments!
