April ’18 Wrap

April was a pretty quiet month for me at 16 books (I typically average 20-25). I hit a major fantasy slump, and then it progressed into a full-on everything slump. I spent about 2 weeks of this month reading a max of 50 pages a day. That said, over the last few days, I’ve gradually come out of that slump, and I still had some pretty good reads this month.

(By the way, I read five books for the ApTHRILL challenge!)

    1. Oh, I’m actually still in the middle of it! 🙂 I’m definitely not DNFing it – it’s way too good for that. I hit a BAD fantasy slump in April that made me slow down on it big time, but now some friends of mine are starting a group read of it later this month, so I agreed to set it aside and resume it with them in a week or two!

      1. Haha aww, no, it totally just varies based on the person! Like, I don’t know if this sounds silly, but if I’m used to reading 20 per month, 15 feels like a slow month to me – but my fiance is used to reading 3-5 a month, so when he hits 5 books in one month, I’m legit like, “OMG!!! THAT’S SO AWESOME!” and totally cheering for him bahaha! Honestly, I just love hearing about people’s reading wraps and goals! ♥

      2. I totally get this! I’ve honestly always been a slower reader so when I see people with large wrap ups, i just have to remind myself that I’m not them so we’re gonna read a different amount of books each month (plus everyone has good months and bad months) hopefuly I’ll be able to read a lot more this may since I’m now out of school for the summer 😊

  1. 16 books is still a lot to read and you read some awesome books too!
    Also, I can’t wait read your review on Throne of Glass! I’m currently listening to Heir of Fire on audiobook and its great!

      1. Haha right? I don’t think I ever finished a full audiobook until last fall! Right now I’m working on one called A Head Full of Ghosts by… Paul Tremblay, I think is the author’s name? I needed something new to listen to on my drive home from swimsuit shopping, so I found it on the Libby app and it didn’t have a wait on it. I thought it’d be okay but now I’m HOOKED! I was even listening to it while doing laundry today lol!

  2. It kills me that your slump month ends up being twice as many books as a good month for me. I mean, it doesn’t kill me, but I am envious. 🙂 I had a pretty bad slump (reading and general) this month as well. Hopefully May is better for both of us! ❤
