I spent some extra time off work in doctor’s appointments and in the hospital with the husband after his surgery so I got some extra reading done. (He’s recovering nicely.) I finished 20 books.
They were set in:
- Texas, New Jersey, Washington, Kansas, New York, and Iowa
- The Bahamas
- Hong Kong
- and various imaginary lands
- Adult General Fiction
- YA Fantasy
- Adult Urban Fantasy
- High Fantasy
- Graphic Novels – historical fiction and nonfiction
There were 17 unique authors:
- 11 were women and 6 were men
- Non – United States authors were from Sweden, Australia, and England
- 6 of the 17 authors were POC
- 1 book was originally not written in English
Book mail this month
I received a package from England for the Ninja Book Swap.
My OTSP Secret Sister sent me an Easter box.
Hanging out and reading Shadowshaper on Easter
I debated the weirdness of Atomik Aztex and won a bundle of weird ebooks.
Foodies Read is going along nicely. If you read any books with food as a major plot point, link up with us for a chance to win another foodie book. The link up goes live on the first of each month and can be found on the sidebar.
I love swaps so I signed up for this one:
Book Expo America is in May in Chicago. I’m a discussion leader on one day and I’m going to be an onsite correspondent for Armchair BEA. I’m looking forward to that!
Sounds like you had a nice month and I’m glad to hear that your husband’s recovery is going smoothly. I love the selection of books you’ve posted about and how diverse they seem to be in setting, genre AND author! Hopefully this month will be great for you too!!
Seems like you had a great month 🙂 I love your photos! The Easter box looks awesome.
I really want to start The Others series and the Mercy Thompson series! And I love that you read books set in so many different countries. I love reading books set in other countries but don’t find enough of them :-/
The Others series is so good. It is one of my favorites right now.
Sounds like a nice month of reading! I have Rejection Proof on my wish list, so hopefully it’s one you enjoyed. haha I do like books set up like that one though – where people test something out for a year or something.
I’m a sucker for books about people trying something new for a set time. Rejection Proof was good. Hope you enjoy it. Here’s my review of it. https://www.spiritblog.net/rejection-proof/
Looks like you had a great month! I started the new Patricia Briggs, but novels fell by the wayside in March. I am determined to do better in April!
Wow you’ve read too many books last month. I’m planning to read 15 books this April and hopefully I can finish that. 🙂
