March and April Wrap-Up and May TBR

During March and April, I read a total of 9 books (two were short stories).

In March, I read three shorter books. One was a graphic novel, one was poetry, and the other was a nonfiction book. I gave the graphic novel, one star - it was very disappointing for me; and I almost put it down multiple times to not pick it back up.


In April, I listened to the audiobook of Sleeping Giants, and also read two short stories connected to the series. Then I read my first nonfiction novel of the year, Get Well Soon. After that I read two graphic novels, Skyward and Copperhead.

In the month of May, these are the books that I would like to either start and finish, or just finish this month. I also know I have a huge YA ambition of books I want to complete this month, so I don't know how many of these books I will get to.

February Wrap-Up and March TBR

During February, I read one short story collection, four mysteries, and two graphic novels.

The short story collection that I read this month was Her Body and Other Parties, which I ended up giving one star to. Then I got back into the Lady Darby series, and read the second book, the third book, the fourth book, and the short novella that takes place between the fourth and fifth book. The first graphic novel I read was Saga Vol. 8 which was on my TBR for this month. The final book, and graphic novel, I read this month was I Hate Fairyland Vol. 1.


So for the month of March, I'm going to, fingers crossed, finish (up to this point at least) the Saga series and the Lady Darby series, which I am almost halfway through the fifth book.


Along with the Saga graphic novel, there are a handful of other graphic novels that I would like to read during this month, but due to how many I would like to read, I'm not going to list any. And with that being said, the same goes for the pile of Agatha Christie mysteries that I have acquired from my library.

And of course, the big book for the month (and maybe the past months if I can).

January Wrap-Up and February TBR

During January, I read a total of 17 books.

So this past month to kind of start off my reading year, I read a short novella to jump into a series that I am going to try to read this year, and that was One Night with You by Marie Force, along with a teaser scene, Future of Work: Compulsory, from the Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells, which is a collection of short novellas that I also plan to read sometime during this year. Another shorter book that I read was poetry by Amanda Lovelace, the author of The Princess Saves Herself in This One, which was To Make Monsters Out of Girls.


I also listened to a short novella from Lisa Unger, called Burning Girl. This is the second part of a three part novella collection that make up a part of Unger's Hollow series. Then I listened to another Ruth Ware novel, Death of Mrs. Westaway, and I really enjoyed it. Next book I listened to was Binti. You can read my review here. Another thriller I listened to was New Neighbors by Simon Lelic, which I also reviewed here.


I also started three new graphic novel series. One, which is very popular that I have seen mentioned a lot on booktube and book blogs, which is Saga, and I flew through the books in this series that are currently out. The other graphic novel is the first in a new series called Black Bull of Norroway, and I cannot wait to read more of this series because I absolutely loved it. The final series that I started and completed is the Spill Zone, which I also loved.


I would like to read the eight and ninth volumes of Saga. Then I am aiming to complete two big books because I am already behind on that challenge. I am aiming to complete Passage and Shadow of What Was Lost. I also want to complete a nonfiction book this month called Killers of the Flower Moon.
