April Wrap-Up & May Reading Plans

2018 has been a crazy year so far so my reading time has really suffered.I don’t know when things will calm down, I hope I will have a bit more time at the end of my mid-terms but we’ll see. Anyway, last month I read two books:

Even if I only managed to read two things, both works were very good. My favorite is Borne by Jeff Vandermeer and my review will be up soon. I’m so glad to see it shortlisted for the Clarke, it deserves its spot!

Book of the month


May Reading Plans

Since I don’t know how much I will be able to read this month, I won’t make my plans too ambitious. I want to read and review Disco Sour by Giuseppe Porcaro since the author was kind enough to provide me with an ARC. I would also like to start my 2018 Clarke Shortlist Reading Project but I will make another post about it in a few days!

If I have time, I would like to finish Black Wolves by Kate Elliott since I have been reading this book since January… It is good but I don’t have an ebook version and the physical copy I have is massive and not easy to transport… I just have about a hundred pages left so if I don’t forget, I should be able to be done with it soon. I would also love to read again Ninefox Gambit and Raven Stratagem by Yoon Ha Lee to prepare myself for Revenant Gun, the final book in this fantastic trilogy but I doubt I will have the time. 😦


What is your favorite book of April? Do you look forward reading a particular book in May? 😀

  1. I’m so glad you loved Borne!! ♥️ I adored it and I’m so glad it’s on the Clarke shortlist. I hope your life calms down, I am extremely busy these days too and wish I had way more time to read.

  2. Revenant Gun was definitely one of my favourite April reads 😀 …I didn’t reread the first two before I tackled it (like you, I wanted to, but…) and I found it less tricky to pick up the threads than I did with Raven (where I spent the first few chapters going BUT I THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD until I finally realised what was going on).

    My other favourite was definitely City of Brass – I loved the world-building, the main character Nahri, the conflicted prince Alizayd and I can’t wait for the sequel to find out what’s actually going on.

    1. Haha yes Raven Stratagem picked up right after Ninefox so I was very glad that I took the time to re-read the first! I remember the story pretty well but I love this series so much that I really want to go back to the first two books! But I might do like you and not re-read them, since the ARC of Revenant had been sitting at the top of my TBR for more than a month and I want to know how this is going to end!

      I have only heard great things about City of Brass! I don’t read much YA but this one sounds very good. 😀

      1. I don’t usually do YA either but this one worked well for me – I can see some of the YA romance tropes tiptoeing in, but the world is engrossing enough that they’re not bothering me like they usually do 😉
