March & April Wrap Up

March & April Wrap Up 2018

Hi everyone and welcome to May! I’m so sorry that I haven’t been posting many blog posts recently. I’m still struggling with personal issues, mostly my chronic pain. I hope to keep up with blogging more in the coming months. In this post, I’m going to be sharing the books I read in the months of March and April. In March, I finished 7 books and a total of 3,273 pages (which includes the pages of the books I DNF’d). In April, I only finished 4 books with a total of 1,510 pages. I hope I’m able to read even more this month!

Books Read in March

Illuminae Files series

  • Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (reread) – 5 stars
  • Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (reread) – 5 stars
  • Obsidio by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – 4.5 stars



Books I DNF’d in March


I decided to DNF Nice Try, Jane Sinner at 39% because I wasn’t connecting with the characters and I really didn’t like the writing style. Others might enjoy this book but it just wasn’t my cup of tea. As for Meet Cute, I decided to DNF it pretty quickly. It’s an anthology and I read the first few stories but wasn’t absolutely loving it so I DNF’d.
