Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2022

  • When the Reckoning Comes by LaTanya McQueen (★★★☆☆)
  • The Justice of Kings by Richard Swan (★★★★☆)
  • A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer (★★★★☆)
  • Sundial by Catriona Ward (★★★★☆)

MONTHLY TOTAL: 4
YEARLY SO FAR: 17

Not too many books this month, but the number is deceptive, because I DNF’d FIVE whole books in April. Granted, I thankfully didn’t make it super far into any of them, but still, that was a lot of time spent reading that amounted to nothing.

  • Dead Silence by S.A. Barnes (★★★☆☆)

MONTHLY TOTAL: 2
YEARLY SO FAR: 7

Two!! I read only two books this month, and one of them was a novella! In my defense, for most of February I was in Egypt, hanging out with family and generally vacationing, and I’ve never been very good at reading whilst on vacation. I also spent a while trying to get through OUR WIVES UNDER THE SEA but ended up DNF’ing it nearly halfway through because I was bored.

An okay start to the reading year in terms of numbers, though I’m already four books behind on my Goodreads challenge, alas. But I read some great books, which is all that matters.
