This is a once a month feature (obviously) where I to look back and admire all the books I’ve read and provide my readers (you guys) with the opportunity to access any reviews you may have missed. I realize I’m a few days late for an April Recap, but I’ve never done one before and I really didn’t want to wait until next month to start.
This has been one of the best months of reading that I’ve ever had. I have to thank The Broke and the Bookish for hosting their Top 10 Tuesday feature because, about two months ago, they provided the topic “top 10 books at the top of my spring 2013 reading list“. I compiled a list of books that I was most excited to read and then promptly realized that ARCs, sequels, and the endless list of my TBR pile would keep me from reading those books for many months to come. How stupid is that? The books I most want to read take a backseat to my “obligations”. Anyway, I decided that from here on out I would focus my reading on the books that excite me most and not on the endless list of books that I feel like I “should be reading.” Unfortunately, since I’m only just reading it the top books on my list now, most of the reviews won’t be posted until May. Even so, I did get in quite a bit of good reading last month.
So without further ado, here’s a look at Aprils reviews (you can click on the covers to read the full reviews):
Fair Game by Patricia Briggs (5/5 stars)
Eve and Adam by K.A. Applegate and Michael Grant (3.5/5 stars)
The Ghost King by R.A. Salvatore (5/5 stars)
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire (4.5/5 stars)
Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck (2/5 stars)
The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abe (4/5 stars)
And my Favorite….
Fragments by Dan Wells (5/5 stars!)
There you have it! There were a couple I didn’t really care for, but for the most part this is a collection of fantastic books. It also oddly represents my reading habits, as you can see it’s a bit scattered and from a few different genres. It’s difficult to choose a favorite but I landed on Fragments as the best book on the list, but barely. The one that will stick with me for years to come is The Ghost King, so it gets an honorable mention.
