April Wrap-Up

Guys! This month I read so many books. And I really loved almost everything I read! This month I read a grand total of 15 books! A round of applause, if you please because this is a new personal record for me! So let me break it down a little for ya. I read:

  • 5 Middle Grade, 7 Young Adult, 3 Adult
  • 1 audiobook, 2 Graphic Novels, 12 Physical Books


I have no idea what caused me to be such a voracious reader last month. I think a bit of it had to do with the fact I knew I’d have an organic/biochemistry refresher course for May and reading will have to take a backseat. So my body/mind just naturally consumed books like they were peanut butter and chocolate (which is the best combination in history). I learned a few things this month. 

  1. Percy Jackson is AMAZING and maybe I don’t dislike MG as much as I thought. Can’t wait to read more Riordan.
  2. I am not a graphic novel person. While I can appreciate the beautiful artwork, I can’t get into it. At least I tried and now I know this about myself as a reader.
  3. Neil Gaiman is a legendary audiobook narrator. And Norse Mythology has way more comedy than I previously believed. 
  4. I have joined Samantha on her Falling Kingdoms bandwagon. That story is like crack.
  5. A List of Cages mentally destroyed me. Please read this book.

In April I read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians complete series by Rick Riordan, books 1-3 in the Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes, Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough, A List of Cages by Robin Roe, Red Rising by Pierce Brown, Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten, The Wicked + The Divine by Kieron Gillen/Jamie McKelvie (Illustrations)/Matt Wilson (Colorist), Clayton Cowles, Giant Days by John Allison/ Lissa Treiman (Illustrator)/Whitney Cogar (Colors) and Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. 

How was your reading month for April? Have you read Rick Riordan and which series should I start now, Magnus or Apollo? I hope to have reviews up for some of these soon!
