Reading Wrap-Up: April 2017

We had a truly rainy April here in the south. As I write this, it’s been raining for THREE days. My kids are going crazy, my dogs refuse to go outside, and my cat stares forlornly out the window (like most of us). But, that said, I had a great reading month, with some really amazing five-star reads. Check them out below!

Reading Wrap-Up: March 2017

It’s hard to believe March is over! The days go slow but the years, or in this case the months, go quick. I read 6 books in March, taking me to worlds with Napoleonic era dragons, another dragon who doesn’t eat the girls he takes, and a futuristic France where a girl meets a wolf. What is this madness? Read on to find out.

Reading Wrap-Up: January 2017

I dedicated much of the month to planning my latest writing project, and ended up reading several wonderful resources on writing. I also read a few autobiographies, which was definitely a step outside the norm for me. Check out my January reads below!

Speaking of reading, it was another excellent reading month for me, with a total of 8 full length novels and two short stories under my belt. Read on to find out what I read and what I thought.

Reading Wrap Up: April 2016

readingwrapupI’m going to be honest – April was a weird month for me. I spent the rest of the year tearing through books, about 9 or 10 a month. But this month, I hit what felt like a creative wall. Between revisions for “The Runaway Queen,” and starting a new project for Camp Nanowrimo, I had a hard time reading. I also had a sick kid on Book Club night, so I didn’t get to go talk about Rebel Belle last month, which was a real bummer.

I did read a couple of great books, and I also started beta reading through Goodreads, which has been a fun adventure that I’ll save for another post. So while the list is shorter this month, it has some quality reads in it. I also discovered a couple of awesome podcasts during my reading slump that I’ll write about below.
