Hurrah for readathon! I really was feeling my reading mojo sliding away this month but readathon got me right back on track, with 13 books in total read in April. Although now it means I have lots of review writing catch up to do! A blogger’s work is never done…
I’ve brought back my UK Goodreads giveaway round-ups that were previously on Win All the Books. I will try and do them on a semi regular basis from now on, though they won’t be every week. I will also annouce a Book of the Month each month, based on what went on the blog rather than what I’ve read, mostly as I’ve been reading a bit further ahead than I normally would with advance copies. So if there’s only one review you read each month, make sure it’s that one.
Here’s what made it onto the blog…
Book of the Month:
Uprooted by Naomi Novik
Read and awaiting review:
The Earth is Singing by Vanessa Curtis, The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, The Double Shadow by Sally Gardner, Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan + Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor.
