My April Book Pile
April was a long month for me. Between Bug's numerous doctor's appointments, end of school antsiness, and my general hatred of my job, there wasn't much for me to enjoy about reading.
I know I usually talk about my favorite and least favorite of the month but I honestly didn't have any real standouts in April. If I really had to choose I would say Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King was the easiest read. I wish I had known in advance that it was a thriller and not a paranormal type book. It might have made me like it better, but I was a little disappointed when I was expecting typical King.
The overall least favorite for the month was pretty easy to choose. Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas was so boring I felt my hair grow. It took me ages to read this book and the only thing that finally pushed me through was the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. I stayed up late reading on it and finished it the next day.
I realized recently that I think I've only had one 5 star read this year so far and that was 11/22/63 way back in January. No wonder I feel book burnout. I haven't had a great read in months!
