April 2013 Reading Wrap-up

With May here it’s time to take a moment and look back at the reading that was done in the month of April. This month went by at a fairly regular pace, we had a bunch of late winter storms near the end of the month which put a damper on just about everything including reading. But beyond that this was a good month book wise, I acquired a lot of new books, had the chance to participate in my first read-a-thon and updated my blog a bit. This month I read thirteen books which officially puts me three books over my original reading goal for the year. I need to up that goal now at some point though I’m not quite sure what to set it at yet.

So what did I read during April?

  • In Bed With A Highlander by Maya Banks
  • Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
  • Queen of Swords by Katee Robert
  • Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
  • Ghost Planet by Sharon Fichser
  • The Shining by Stephen King
  • Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
  • The Autobiography of Billy The Kid by Ralph Estes
  • Farewell, Dorothy Parker by Ellen Meister
  • Song of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy
  • A Deadly Judgement by Jessica Fletcher
  • The Young Black Stallion by Walter Farley
  • Lenore: Swirlies by Roman Dirge

So which books were my favorite? Well this month I really enjoyed Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Touch of Power, and Farewell, Dorothy Parker. These three books were really good and I would definitely recommend them to others. My last favorite book this month was The Shining, I just hated it throughout the entire darn thing and found myself once again disappointed with a Stephen King book that was supposed to be one of his best.

Outside of reading this month I attended a library buck-a-bag sale where I bought a lot of good books, I watched two and a half seasons worth of Friends and began the long job of spring cleaning, which will probably be done in another week or two as some things need to wait until the snow melts away. Overall April was a good month, though I could have done without those winter storms and I look forward to what May has in store.
