  4. Great wrap-up! I’m glad you enjoyed Skyward, and To Best the Boys! My favorite read for April was The Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan! I absolutely loved that book! Hope you have a wonderful May! 🙂

      I also loved The Wicked Saints and I can’t wait for the sequel Raven!!

  5. I MUST get caught up on the Shatter Me series! I still need to read Restore Me and Shadow Me before I pick up Defy Me. And now I see that there’s another novella coming out in October. Ack! Must read faster! 🙂

  11. It’s been a busy time….I just scheduled our April wrap-up for tomorrow, whoops. I was thinking of starting with Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson but that book you just read looks so good, choices ack lol.

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      Hahaha exactly Jen, choices !!!

  12. I didn’t read as many books as usual in April. Some favorites were Ghost Mine and Stoker’s Wilde.

      Well Laura May seems really bad so far so I bet I’ll beat you this month!

  13. While you had a productive month reading and reviewing, I only read 5 books, which was 2 more than March. I really hit a slum. Maybe when I can get out on the balcony to read, in the sun, it will be better. 😀
