I read a lot more this month than I was expecting to. I had a bit of a busy month as I had to review for my AP Testing that happening in the beginning of May. I won’t be very active in the next couple of weeks though I do have some post scheduled so I’m not totally MIA. April was a great reading month. I read nine even though I only thought I would be able to read two. I have become more than a little bit obsessed with historical romances over the past month. There a lot of fun to read and go by so quickly I was able to squeeze in quite a few. So here is my month in books.
Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder |Review|
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller |Review|
I didn’t read as much YA that I wanted to, but I did love both of these books and they didn’t disappoint. Daughter of the Pirate King was awesome the premise of the book was so good and I was a little nervous to see if it could live up to it’s potential and it did! Maria V Snyder is one of my favorite authors and I was really excited to read Dawn Study, I had started this book awhile ago but this month I was able to finish it and It was an awesome finale to this saga.
The Historical Romance
The Bride by Julie Garwood
The Wedding by Julie Garwood
Devil In Winter by Lisa Kleypas
Tempt me at Twilight by Lisa Kleypas
I wasn’t kidding when I said I became a little obsessed with historical romance this month. This genre is a lot of fun to read. It’s filled with strong independent women in time periods that generally weren’t kind to them, yet they manage to make their way through. These books are also really funny and are filled with witty characters.
Surviving Death by Leslie Kean |Review|
I’ve read a few non-fiction books this year and this one joins the ranks. The premise of the book was absolutely fascinating. A journalist who investigates life after death, and gathers plausible evidence. It was a really fascinating read.
The New Adult
Wrong Place, Right Time by Elle Casey
Wrong Number, Right Guy by Elle Casey
I read both of these books earlier in the month and they were both really fun to read. They were both contemporary romances with a hint of suspense.
This was my month in books. What books did you read this month?
