April ate me alive, went by so fast, and also I forgot it in its entirety. Putting together this list, I was like “wait, that was this month?” That’s the kind of brain blur we’re working with!
I did LOTS of reading this month–a lot of arcs, a few longass audio books, and a good chunk of graphic novels I’d been looking forward to–including the first two volumes of Heartsopper!
My big WOW of the month was A Lesson in Vengence–everything I wanted it to be and more!
I also really enjoyed the new Kasie West, Sunkissed. A summer camp kind of older teen romance with a music subplot. Very enjoyable reading!
I did NOT like the new Keira Cass, The Betrayed, or Girl A, really. Everything else was FINE, lol.
In April, I read 28 books! Which is really impressive if you consider the length of Codebreaker alone.
Here’s what I read in April 2021

In May, I’m going to be making headway on my committee reads, a few ARCS from Netgalley I was so excited for four months ago, and maybe ONE previous Book of the Month pick. TBH, I think that’s all I can mentally commit to for BOTM right now. Sigh.
