Books I Read This Month (April 2017)

Dreamland - Sarah Dessen The Collapsing Empire - John Scalzi

Hope everyone had a great reading month!

At this point I am almost at the 50 percent mark for my reading goal for the year! I plan on reading at least 337 books. At this point in time I have read 155 books/comics/graphic novels.

This year I went easier on myself and am not doing that many challenges. Last year got a bit too much for me.


This month I read 29 books.


I honestly did not read a book that really knocked my socks off this month. I am just going to go with "Dreamland" though since it is a book I can see myself re-reading in the future (which is what makes a book 5 stars to me).


My least favorite book was "The Collapsing Empire". I got burned so badly by some of the new releases this past month that have been getting tons of hype. Between this one and "The Bone Witch" I am going to make sure that all other new releases I get, that I try to obtain them from the library first.
