As usual, I read a lot more books this month than I actually posted about… This made me think that maybe I should include a separate category for “read” books to go alongside my “reviewed” books. I’ve seen a lot of other bloggers do this, and I actually kind of like it, but have been hesitating to do it myself because of an irrational fear that no one will want to read the reviews if they already know what’s coming. The key word is “irrational” because I’m so far behind in reviewing the books that it really doesn’t matter. Although, there are a few books that I reviewed immediately, so then there’s the problem of “double dipping.”
I think I’m putting far too much thought into this.
Anyway, here’s a look at this fantastic month of reading and reviewing:
While I didn’t get a lot of reviewing done, I certainly got a lot of reading done. The two week vacation certainly didn’t hurt me on that front. I LOVED all of these books, so it’s really difficult to pick a favorite, but I think I’d have to go with Silver Shadows. Interestingly enough, my least favorite read this month was Heir of Fire (Gasp! Blasphemy!). It just goes to show the caliber of books I’ve been picking up lately.
Dualed by Elsie Chapman – 2.5/5 stars
Feast of Fools by Rachel Caine – 4/5 stars
Defy by Sara B. Larson – 4/5 stars
Spirit’s End by Rachel Aaron – 4/5 stars
Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey – 4.5/5 stars
Sadly, I didn’t review nearly as many books as I plan to, but with the release of the first issue of our magazine (The Creative), the amazing cruise to Alaska, and my commitment to my new office job, I’m cutting myself a little slack. As much as I love Rachel Aaron, my favorite book reviewed this month was Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey.

Looks amazing, eh?
Did you have a good month in reading? Did you like seeing the books I’ve read alongside with the ones I reviewed?
Wow! Looks like you have had a great month! Both in the books you have read, and your personal life too!
Thanks April! Yeah, I’ve been really spoiled – best month ever, lol.
