I’m back with my wrapup, on time for once! This was an interesting month of reading for me – I read nothing for two weeks and then binge read for the last couple of days.
I read 11 books this month.
The Summer we Saved the Bees (Robin Stevenson) – 3 // 5 review here!
Half a Lifetime (Judith Wright) – no rating review here!
The Water Babies (Charles Kingsley) – 4 // 5 review here!
Mary Barton (Elizabeth Gaskell) – 4 // 5 review here!
reread The Endless Steppe (Esther Hautzig) – 4 // 5
reread The Story of my Life (Helen Keller) – no rating
Roseblood (A.G. Howard) – no rating (DNF’ed at 60%, but it was a long book so I’m still counting it.)
Life in Outer Space (Melissa Keil) – 3 // 5
reread Throne of Glass (Sarah J Maas) – 3 // 5
The Pause (John Larkin) – 4 // 5
The Anatomy of a Misfit (Andrea Portes) – 3 // 5
about the books…
Only three rereads this month, which is a lot less than usual! I tried to branch out and read five books borrowed from the library. Most of them were a success, except for Roseblood, which I took too long to read and in the end decided that I couldn’t get through.
My favourite book of the month may have to be Mary Barton, by Elizabeth Gaskell. Stunningly written, it portrays life as it was in Victorian England. *slams recommend button*
in other news…
School has well and truly started back, so we’ll see how much I can appear on this blog. Uni is coming into the assignment season, so that’ll be a contributing factor too.
The holidays were wonderful, and far too short! Only eight weeks to go till the next ones *waits impatiently*
That’s really all I have to say. Not a huge amount has been happening. I live a fairly quiet existence.
- sleepovers with dear friends xx
- starting piano teaching again
- my binge reading session of last weekend 🙂
- seeing movies with friends and feeling generally blessed!
What did you do in April?
Keep smiling, and here’s to May!
