What happened in April? I finished my third semester of graduate school, and the weather was so bad that I had a lot of time to read. I didn’t take any pictures in April because I don’t want to spend more time in the snow than I have to.
Since I’ve been reading so much, my TBR shelf now has less than 40 books on it. I’m hoping that it will have less than 30 by the end of May. I feel a lot less stressed out when I don’t have a ton of unread books sitting around.
Books I Read
I read 13 books in April and got very close to finishing Neal Shusterman’s Unwind series, which was my reading goal for the month.
UnDivided – Neal Shusterman
Hitler Youth: Growing up in Hitler’s Shadow – Susan Campbell Bartoletti
Saving Wonder – Mary Knight
UnStrung – Neal Shusterman
A Guide to being Born – Ramona Ausubel
Poor Things – Alasdair Gray
Best Books of April
Picking favorites was painful this month. I liked so many of them.

In May . . .
I’m going to be taking a blogging hiatus from May 25 to June 5. I have a few posts scheduled during that time, but I probably won’t be looking at the blog very often. I will be in Kentucky for my school residency. If this residency is anything like the others, I will be insanely stressed out and running around like a crazy person for two weeks. The blog will be back to its regularly scheduled nonsense on June 6.
Tentative May TBR
May is going to be busy, so I have no idea how much reading time I will have. I know for sure that I’m going to read these:
UnBound – Neal Shusterman
Travels in Vermeer – Michael White
The Lover – Marguerite Duras
All The Things
All The Things (AKA my TBR pile) = 36 books.
I’m currently reading Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro.
