March was a really good month for me. I read five books and finished the tenth draft of my WIP which has now officially moved into the stage of ‘final draft’. It’s going to be hard to recreate that kind of a success because I’m also doing CampNaNoWriMo, but I’m not going to be less ambitious because of it.
In April, I’ll try and read these five books
- The Hate U Give: I’ve talked about this several times on my blog, most recently in my Waiting on Wednesday post. THUG has been (and will continue to be) the most anticipated and hyped YA in a long time. And from what I’ve heard it’s a fantastic and important read, so I’m really excited to finally be able to read it for myself.
- Goodbye Days: This one is a very contemporary read. It’s about Carver, who causes a car accident by sending a text to one of his friends. Three of his friends die in the car crash. I’m expecting this one to make me feel like an emotional train-wreck but that’s okay. I actually prefer those kind of books. Sadistic? Perhaps.
- Stargazing for Beginners: Meg juggles taking care of her baby sister while trying to win a competition to get a chance to go NASA headquarters. Oh, and her rival is a boy named Ed. I’m sensing a cute romance. And even if it doesn’t, it’s got NASA. That’s all I need.
- The City of Saints and Thieves: About a refugee from Congo. “Four years after Tina’s mother is found shot to death, Tina becomes an expert thief. When she finally gets the chance for revenge, she learns how dangerous the past can be.”
- Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda: I know, I’m kind of late to the party, but better late than never right? I’m reading this while I (impatiently) wait for The Upside of Unrequited.
What books are you reading this month?
See you soon,
