April Wrap Up

April has been a pretty bad month for me reading wise. I almost made it to reading 3 books this month, but then I stumbled at the last one. I’m hugely disappointed with how little I’ve read between February to now but I blame working full time, studying and then trying to have a life in the little free time I do have available. I have 5 exams in the next 3 months which I know doesn’t sound like a lot but when there’s so much to learn and revise, it takes up so much time. I just can’t wait for YALC at the end of July because that means it’s finally over for 6 months or so!

Reading total: 2          Books this year: 18

I had a bit of an ambitious TBR for April based on what my reading has been like the past two months. Here are the books I had on my April TBR:

1. Finish Orphan Monster Spy

2. The Smoke Thieves

3. The Beast’s Heart

4. Legendary

5. City of Brass

6. Truly Devious

I managed to read 2 of them! I’m currently just over half way through The Beast’s Heart which is ok, but the narrative style is a little bit too over the top and unnecessary. I’m hoping to finish it relatively soon as I have a couple of other books I’d like to read in May, including Legendary! Whether I will actually read them though, well, that’s another story..

Onto the books I read this month:

Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen – I wrote a review on this that you can find here!

The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green – My review of this book is up now! You can catch the review here. I was pleasantly surprised by this one!

So there’s my April wrap up. How many books did you read this month? Did you have a good or bad reading month?
