I didn’t get to read too many books in April. I was in a reading slump and only finished three books in the last two weeks or so. I did participate in A Very ARC-ish Readathon hosted by Aimal @ Bookshelves and Paperbacks. I only read one arc but I’m happy to have least completed the challenge.

Book Review: Mirror in the Sky by Aditi Khorana
March was another great reading month! I liked all the books I read and was able to finish a book I started back in 2016 (Beyond the Red). I’d wanted to read at least 8 books, but I’m still happy with 5 – reading the same amount as the previous month is better than less. My favourite March read was a tie between Beyond the Red and The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. The latter is so good! It didn’t just inspire me to tidy up but I actually made progress.

Book Review: A Tail of Camelot by Julie Leung
February was a great reading month! I was able to finish one of my most highly anticipated reads of 2017 – Windwitch by Susan Dennard. This was such a great sequel ❤ I also read this super cute middle grade novel called A Tail of Camelot by Julie Leung. Definitely recommend, even if you don’t read MG that often. I’m also trying to read the 2017 Canada Reads shortlist and was able to finish my first book – Fifteen Dogs by Andre Alexis. I really enjoyed it, but I’m not sure if it’s the one book Canadians need to read now. I hope to read at least two more of these books in March (there’s five books on the shortlist).

Book Review: Seriously Wicked by Tina Connolly
So January flew by really fast! I didn’t get to read a lot of books, but I hope that changes in February. It feels like I only read one book because the other two were plays I read for a class. I never read plays and find them hard to rate so if you follow me on Goodreads, you’ll notice I didn’t add a rating or review. I was slightly happy to find out, as I was adding Concord Floral to my Goodreads read shelf, that it was a Governor General’s Literary Award finalist for 2016. When the finalists were announced a bit ago, I’d made a Goodreads shelf with them all. I was only really planning on reading the fiction, YA lit and non-fiction titles, but it’s nice reading more.
Seriously Wicked by Tina Connolly – the first in the series, this was so funny and such an original and modern take on witches and magic. 100% recommend you check this one out!

One of my goal’s for 2017 is to finish the 16 books I already have on my currently-reading shelf. These are all books I started in 2016 or earlier. I plan to read one book I started before 2017 and then I get to start a totally new book. I’ve been somewhat successful, I started Seriously Wicked back in December and then started and finished Windwitch in 2017. I’d love to know how you’re tackling that huge TBR pile. See you next month!
