Month in Review - April

I always enjoy reading blogger’s monthly recaps. It’s a great way to see what you’ve missed, notice trends and see how books compare to each other. I stole this idea from Imagination in Focus, one of my favourite blogs to follow.

Number of Books Read: 5 – slow month
Favourite Read: The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan
Least Favourite: After by Amy Efaw, it was actually really good but I read a few GREAT books this month.
Most Original Idea: Steel by Carrie Vaughn, loved the pirates
Best Character: Sophie from Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins, she’s so much fun to read.
Best Villain: zombies from The Dark and Hollow Places
Best Supporting Character: Cal in Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins, I love him!!!

April was such a slow reading month for me. I spent almost all of my time either packing or driving back and forth between cities for the move. Now that I’m settled, I’m hoping May is a little more productive (for reading).

'The Dark and Hollow Places' was good, but I didn't like it as much as the other ones. It was just a lot darker in tone, I found... I mean, it's the zombie apocalypse, so I'm not sure how else you could have it, haha, but I guess I also didn't like Annah's voice as much as Mary or Gabry's.

We all have slow months! I haven't read The Dark and Hollow Places yet, but I'm dying to! :)

I agree Ashley, her voice just wasn't as good as Mary or Garby's. I think I'm getting tired of main characters who are so insecure.

Welcome back Melissa :)
