April Wrap Up 2015

Back with another wrap up already! April seemed to go by really fast, but thankfully I got so much more work done this month than I did last month and finally got back into writing my second Na Fianna novel as well, which I'm aiming to finish by the end of May before summer starts.

This month I read 9 books, which was way more than I was hoping to, so that made me happy :) (also, I'm hoping to start posting more pictures on my blog, since now I have a better phone camera that makes it sooo much easier to upload pics.)

#1: Downfall (Cal Leandros #9) by Rob Thurman (4/5 stars)
#2: Fairest (Lunar Chronicles #.05) by Marissa Meyer (4/5 stars)
#3: The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff (4/5 stars)
#4: K-9 (Knightly and Son #2) by Rohan Gavin (3/5 stars)
#5: Shutter by Courtney Alameda (4/5 stars)
#6: Hounded (Iron Druid Chronicles #1) by Kevin Hearne (3.5/5 stars)
#7: Call of the Wild by Jack London (3/5 stars) This was my classic book club read of the month.
#8: Half Moon Investigations by Eoin Colfer (3/5 stars)
#9: The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Reese Brennan (3.5/5 stars)

Favorite Reads of the Month

The Replacement

I'll have the reviews for these up sometime later this month so keep an eye out!

I was good with my book buying this month, (because next month at BookCon is going to be ridiculous) even though everything were splurge buys, I only bought four. I found another used bookshop where I got two, and then I made a trip to B&N because I bought my brother a giftcard for his bday (tactical) 

#1: Summer Knight (Dresden Files #4) by Jim Butcher
#2: The Navigator by Eoin McNamee
#3: The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Girl of Fire and Thorns #1) by Rae Carson
#4: Penny Dreadfuls This is a B&N anthology of classic horror stories. It has an awesome selection in it!

Also for those of you not following my Twitter, I finally got my baby hedgehog this month! His name is Horatio.

So next month I will be going to BookCon in NY so there will be a special book haul wrap up for that. I really look forward to sharing my experience with you all. If anyone else is going to BookCon, please let me know!
