I can’t believe it is already May! This past month has flown by and I barely feel like I have accomplished much besides reading, especially since this has been a bad month with lots of migraines. Anyways, here are my stats for April!
- Books Read: 41
- Re-reads: 17
- DNF: 2
- ARC’s: 9
- eBooks: 31
- Audiobooks: 2
- Comics: 7
- Paperback: 0
- Hardback: 1
As you can see I had quite a few 5 and 4 star reads this month. I think this might have been the most 5 star books in one month so far. A lot of those were rereads though because I comfort read a favorite paranormal series.
- 10,888 pages
- 21 hours 13 minutes
Genres and Tropes:
The majority of what I read this month was paranormal romance. This shouldn’t be surprising at this point because that is my main genre.
My tropes were all over the place again but that is because I don’t like to focus on one trope. I also added some nonfiction subgenre’s to this chart because I wanted to track the types of nonfiction books I read and figured they could work under tropes.
As usual most of the books I read this month were purchased eBooks. I did read quite a few ARCs and Library books this month too though.
Most Read Author:
This month I did a reread of two of Shelly Laurenston’s shifter series and I am so glad I did. Laurenston is one of my favorite paranormal authors and I have reread her books multiple times. They are a comfort series at this point.
I also read 6 volumes of the BRPD comics by Mike Mignola. I did read a few more of the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian. I am hoping to get more than three of them read this month.
Goodreads Challenge Update:
As you can see I am close to the halfway mark for my Goodreads Challenge.
