April was a slow month for me, compared to others, because though I started off strong in the first few days, soon I was pining for The Raven King. It became so that I was only listening to audiobooks of the first three in the three weeks that preceded it’s release, and barely could start another book without leaving it midway. This led to a constant 5 books being on my currently-reading, at any point of time. I took the slump in stride and waited patiently for my copy to arrive. No such luck yet, but since I had also pre-ordered the audiobook, that alleviated my longing much. But then after that, I made up for lost time:
So, finally I read 21 books in April, 19 full-lenth, 1 was an audiobook re-read, and another was a novella.
Only seemed to fit the criteria for the Backlist Challenge.
Since this is a point-based challenge, I’ll break it down
Mirror King (#2 of Orphan Queen) – 2 pts
Champion (#3 of Legend) – 2 pts + 10 pts bonus (for completing the series)
The Raven King (#4 of The Raven Cycle – 2 pts + 10 pts bonus
Cruel Crown (#0.1-0.2 of Red Queen) – 1 pt
Glass Sword (#2 of Red Queen) – 2pt
The Ruby Circle (#6 of Bloodlines) – 2 pt + 10 pts
Progress: 104/51 points
I would recommend all the five contemporaries I read this month.
- Orphan Queen series
Progress: 5/12 series
4 series-enders read
Progress: 14/7 (Expert series reader)
No progress on this front
Progress: 8/15 audiobooks
Well, that has been my April, and I look forward to the challenges in May. Not to mention the new books that will be arriving – I may gone a little overboard with my book buying this month.
How has your April been? Read any good books?
