Monthly Round-up: April

Hey guys! April was another slow month for me, which was disappointing... I was expecting to get lots of reading and work done over the Easter holidays, but it didn't really work out that way. I think the only thing I actually accomplished during the holidays was watching all of Arrow, and then sitting around waiting for the new episode of Arrow... And obsessing over Game of Thrones of course! Though it's been a bit odd lately. Sometimes it is SO on point (the Purple Wedding), and sometimes it's just off (Jaime and Cersei). But we'll see how it goes. Anyway, books!

Books read:
Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens
Captain Marvel Volume 2 by Kelly Sue DeConnick
Avengers: The Enemy Within by Kelly Sue DeConnick
Black Widow: The Name of the Rose by Marjorie M Liu
Paper Aeroplanes by Dawn O'Porter
The City's Son by Tom Pollock
The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell

Total: 8

It doesn't look that bad, but 3 of these are comics, so really I only read 5. They were all pretty excellent, though, so it's going hard a top book.

Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
Paper Aeroplanes by Dawn O'Porter


Book of the Month:

So I couldn't choose between these two. They're both so amazing for different reasons and I love them both! Rooftoppers was also wonderful, but it's Crown of Embers and Murder Most Unladylike that just nudged their way to the top.

I also posted some UKYA recommendations for UKYA Day, and participated in the blog tour for Breaking Butterflies, if you're interested in those sorts of things!

This month I also went to the Dawn O'Porter event at Waterstone's Piccadilly, which was a lot of fun and Dawn had a lot of interesting things to say about stuff like celebrities writing books, religion, and fanny farts. As I said, a lot of fun.

May will most likely be another slow month around here as exams and revision and stress, but I hope to get my mojo back soon. It's been gone since, like, the beginning of this year and it'd be nice to post more than 4 things a month...

How was your April? :)
