April Reading Roundup

April Reading Roundup: The 12 Books I Read Last Month

I’m starting a new series on EyesOnBooks, and that’s a monthly reading roundup. At the end of each month, I’ll tell you a little bit about all the books I read the month before, then try to review each of them individually. The April Reading Roundup looks better than I feared. My monthly goal is to read at least ten books. As I’m also a genre fiction author as a full time job, ten seemed like a good enough number to make sure I keep reading in my spare time. This month I managed to read/listen to twelve books, and this is my list

Let’s look a little into the stats!

9 ebooks versus 3 audiobooks

Total pages read: 2687

Lowest rating -2.75* vs Highest rating – 4.5*

In terms of stars, this month had quite a few books that I’d have rated 3 and 3.5 stars. Some I rated lower because they weren’t exactly my style of story or because I found things I disliked in terms of word choices. Neither of these was however an unenjoyable read. I did DNF a couple of books.

I used to never put down a book until I finished reading it. Things have changed in the last couple of years, especially since my reading time is so limited. So, instead of pushing my self to read things I don’t enjoy, I stop reading them and delete them from my Kindle or Scribd app. That said, I don’t want to give bad publicity to any book, so if I didn’t like it enough to finish it, I won’t talk about it.

How many books did you read in April?
