Month in Review: April 2012

Well, judging by the 90 degree days here, I guess we're just about into summer. Of course, it's still technically more than a month away! I have a feeling it's going to be a long, hot summer here in North Carolina! I'll be hiding inside for a few months, as those of you in the North do in the winter. Maybe that will mean some extra reading time for me! Here's what I did in April.

Books Read in April: 4
  1. Drinking from the Fire Hose by Christopher J. Frank and Paul F. Magnone
  2. Off the Grid by Mark Young
  3. Blue Asylum by Kathy Hepinstall
  4. The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
Reviews Written: 5
I wrote reviews for three of the books I read in April. I also wrote reviews for two books I read back in March: Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier and If Walls Could Talk by Lucy Worsley. You can click on the links above to read the reviews.

Year-to-Date Totals:
Nonfiction: 6
Memoir: 1
Contemporary Fiction: 3
Historical Fiction: 2
Mystery/Thriller: 2
Middle-Grade Fiction: 4

For review: 13
For book club: 4
For me: 1

Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge
I read two book toward this challenge during April: Drinking from the Fire Hose and The Devil in the White City. I'm keeping track of my progress on my sidebar.

Narnia Reading Project
I didn't read any books toward this challenge during March or April. I really hope to read the next book during May! I'm keeping track of my progress on my sidebar.

  2. Looks like you had a good reading month, Julie! I need to check out some of your reviews - I've missed a lot of blog posts lately :)

    Enjoy your books in May (how can it be May already?) and stay cool!

    1. Thanks! It was a pretty good reading month, although I wish I was finding more time to read in general!
