April 2013 Rundown and Upcoming in May
May 3, 2013 § Leave a comment
So… April was an interesting reading month for me. With the end of the semester I’ve been spending lots of time on papers and presentations and the like and less time reading for fun sadly. What I did manage to read was an interesting batch though.
The first book I read was a continuation from March, Nobody’s Perfect, the fourth book in the Rescue Me series by Kallypso Masters. I was really excited when I actually got to this book and I have to say it didn’t let me down.
The second book I read was Fever by Maya Banks, the second book in the Breathless trilogy. I knew this book would be… gritty, is the best word I’ve got, but it was amazing, I loved it. Now I’m stuck waiting until AUGUST for the third book. I hate waiting.
Suicide Note by Teresa Mummert was the third book I read which was less than fantastic, unfortunately. I’ve reviewed it here, along with another of her books if you’re interested.
I also read Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren in April. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. I’m kinda ‘ehh’ about the book to be honest.
Around the middle of the month I got an itch to read some more of Lora Leigh’s Breed books, so I read four of those this month, one of which was a re-read. I read:
- Mercury’s War, #16
- Christmas Heat, #17 (which is actually a novella)
- Styx’s Storm, #22
- Navarro’s Promise #24 (the re-read)
I’ve been jumping around in this series for the last couple of years, but I’m finally filling in some gaps and forcing myself to go in order for the rest of it, because OMIGOSH, the stuff that happens. O.O
In April I also read Things Are Going to Slide by Rangeley Wallace as part of a book tour and I loved it!
I satiated another bookish curiosity by reading a cheap-o copy of Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire that I picked up during my trip to the used book store recently (look out for the book haul this Sunday ’cause…. ZOMG). It was good even if that book will win every single award for most dysfunctional relationship ever. It was good enough that I’d like to pick up the companion novel Walking Disaster if I can find it cheap enough.
And last but not least… I started re-reading a series that I first read about ten years ago because I finally replaced the books I was missing and then I just HAD to read them. So last month I got through the first two books of the Sweep series:
- Book of Shadows, #1
- The Coven, #2
I’m unsure how I’ll review these books at this point, but I’d like to because of the different way it looks at witches (as opposed to say, Harry Potter).
What will May bring?
I’m reading a few books right now actually, I’m on book 7 of the Sweep series… yes I’ve read books 3-6 in the first two days of May, lol. I’m also reading King of the Class by Gila Green which is really interesting. I’m definitely liking that one. The last book I’ve got going right now is Coyote’s Mate, the 18th book in the Breeds series.
To be honest, I don’t know exactly what else I’ll be reading this month yet because I have my last two weeks of school and SO many new books and there’s so much temptation and feelings of, ‘I MUST READ THIS!!!!’ I can say that I’ll probably finish the Sweep series seeing as I read them in a couple hours a piece and because they’re addicting! Other than that, it’ll be a surprise for all of us I suppose, lol.
What did you read last month? Anything good? Anything in particular you’re looking forward to this month? Inquiring minds would like to know.
