Monthly Book Report ~ Month 3 of Year 2019… A little hiccup in the challenges!

Posted April 2, 2019 by Michelle in Monthly Book Report / 4 Comments

Well I might have killed it when it came to reading but I was in such a weird genre shift that my challenges sort of got pushed aside. Really at this point my goal is to read, challenges are just motivation so if I stray a little I am ok with it.

I was in a steamy reading mood and found the perfect author to help me with that. Most of them were quick reads but I loved them and plan to read a few of her series book at some point, might be a plan for the summer months. Right now I am falling back into fantasy and oping to read some shelf books especially with Dewey 24 hour Readathon coming up the first week in April. I know I can’t do the entire 24 hours but even reading 2 books that day will make me extremely happy.

April will be a good reading month, besides the readathon I will also be going away and this vacation is going to be a just relax vacation so I am hoping to read a few books while I am away, I also hope to listen to an audio book since we will be driving to Florida.

Book I read

April TBR List

I am picking 5 books that I am hoping to read this month…

One of the audio books I want to listen to is The Priory of the Orange Tree or I might do Six of Crows since I heard it is a good listen.

  1. That’s okay about getting a tad off track last month. You got a nice stack read and can reset for April reading. Yeah, that antho you’re doing does look huge. I’m reading through one now and hope to get one more done by the end of the year. I use challenges to help motivate me, too.

    Happy Reading in April and enjoy that vacation!
