March Wrap Up and April TBR

Divider

Posted April 1, 2019 in Roundup Tags:

Happy April!! I thought I would do a March Wrap up as well as an April TBR. This also gives me a chance to reflect on my reading so far in the first 1/4 of the year.

March Reads:

Favorite Reads of March:

I had a few additional reads that I didn’t review on the blog, but on goodreads (mostly short reads).

April TBR:

Here are the books I have on my schedule for April-

  •   Mad About Moon by Melissa Foster
  •   Lord Have Mercy by Lani Lynn Vale
  •   No Other Duke But You by Valerie Bowman

So, as you can see, I don’t have many ‘required reading’ books. That means I can ‘hopefully’ get in some TBR books. But, here is my problem-I can’t decide!! How do you decide what to read when you don’t have a schedule? I cannot decide! Part of the problem is I have hundreds of unread books on my kindle, dozens on my iBooks app, and shelves of unreads books. I cannot even seem to narrow it down. Anyone have ideas? I have thought about a TBR jar-has anyone tried this?

Here are a few books I might want to read in April:

  •   Some of my Netgalley backlist like Ryder by Diana Gardin, In Her Sights by Katie Ruggle, Leopard’s Run by Christine Feehan
  •   The Carpathian series by Christine Feehan (I have read the first 5 or so, but would like to continue)
  •   The Hades Hangman series by Tillie Cole (I read book 1)
  •   The Winner’s Curse Trilogy

So, lots of 4 star reads…Also, I haven’t reviewed any of my DNF’s on the blog yet (I usually wait until I have a few of them and make one post), so that number isn’t quite accurate. But, overall, this is a pretty good representation of my 2019 reading year so far!

  1. I hope you find some fun books to read this month. If it’s not a review book, it can be tough for me to choose something because I have SO many unread books that I want to get to – sometimes it’s whatever sounds the best at the moment, but I do think a TBR jar would be fun.

  2. It’s hard since there is always so much I want to read. I have a couple strategies. One is being a mood reader, I pick a genre and pick one there and then the next one is a different genre. I don’t have much backlog ARC only a couple but I guess I would pick one of those. Then I’d just rotate between those options. Because Reading is doing a series in a month so I would save the series for that in May and do some of the older ARCs and TBR in April.

  3. I go to all on my kindle then look at the page number. I go to random.org and type in the 1-511 and it gives me a number I then go to that number and I do another random 1-6 because whatever section it lands on it will usually give me six books. That how I randomly pick what to read next
    As far as physical books. I wrap a couple and have my toddler choose one for me blindly, then I reuse the wrapping.

  4. it looks like you had a great month of reading in March. I just love Christine Feehan so I hope you enjoy reading more of her Carpathian series. And I did love books 2 and 3 of the Hades Hangman series by Tillie Cole. So I hope you enjoy those.

    When it comes to books in my TBR, I just look over what sounds good to read. I am a bit of a mood reader so I grab up whatever sounds good.

  5. Oh my gosh, trying to decide what to read when nothing is jumping out at you… ugh. (Such first world problems, right? LOL) I’m a total mood reader so when nothing is grabbing me I sometimes just skip a day of reading until something starts to sound good. Still so annoying, though.
