Whew. April was quite the slow reading month, and the way my May calendar is looking, it seems I won’t have much time for reading next month either! I did finish three books and two were ARCs, which always helps me feel accomplished. I am currently in in the middle of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which I started in mid-April and then set aside to read an ARC.
What a mediocre reading month! March was a rough month. I expected to get so much reading done during Spring Break, but adult responsibilities and National Boards and family obligations dominated that week off from school. Nothing I read this month “wowed” me or captivated me and frankly I had a hard time even picking up a book to read everyday.
I am currently still reading The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden and an ARC of The Killer In Me by Olivia Kiernan. I am very close to DNFing The Bear and the Nightingale though. There are way too many other fantasy books I want to be reading, plus ARCs I need to catch up on.
February was not a great reading month. It started out strong with a tense, fast paced thriller and popular contemporary, but after those two books, I fell into a reading slump/hangover from those amazing books! Nothing compared to the first books I read in February, but I still managed to finish four books this month. My goal during school months is to read four books per month, which averages out to a book a week. Audiobooks are really helping me meet that goal right now as I finish working on National Boards and survive the stretch before testing season begins!
My goal this month was to read four books, and I am happy to report I exceeded my goal with the help of audiobooks. January’s reading started off strong but then after my first three books, I had some very disappointing reads. But by the end of the month, I had read one of my most anticipated books of 2019 and ended the month on a high note.
