IT IS APRIL!! Wooh! One more month down, and yet so many more books left to read! Here’s what we loved this month.
We consume so many books in a month, that we don’t always get the chance to talk about all of our favorites. So, we’ve decide to set aside a monthly post specifically for talking about our favorite reads that would have otherwise flown under the radar.
Even though my reading felt quite sporadic this month, I still manage to finish more books than normal. That could just be attributed to the sheer amount of graphic novels I plowed through, but I’m taking it as a win anyways. March was a busy month for me and reading is reading, right? Anyways, since I read so many graphic novels this month I thought I would talk about the ones I enjoyed the most, which were the graphic novelizations of the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. I somehow managed to snag a copy of each book across my assorted libraries, and read them all basically back-to-back. It was quite enjoyable. Well, once I got used to how they had to edit down each plotline to fit into books with fewer pages. I do think the reason I enjoyed them so much is because this will (most likely) be the last good, new interaction I have with the Percy Jackson series. It also doesn’t hurt that the art style is so vibrant and pretty to look at. I quite enjoyed it, especially since the visuals (& plotting) don’t deteriorate the source material at all, like *cough* some other adaptations that will not be acknowledged… *cough* Lol I do hope that Disney+ TV show turns out alright though.
March was a very slow reading month for me. I still read a lot, but I was so busy that it took me longer to read books and I had a hard time reading anything besides romance. I DNF’d a book that I had been “reading” for a month because I stopped wanting to pick it up. I DNF’d another book because it mentioned a virus and um, no thanks. Usually I don’t like writing about a book that I plan on writing a review for, but only one book stood out to me this month which was Love at First by Kate Clayborn. This book was lyrical and so soft. It’s a character driven novel that is slow paced, but so beautiful. I cried three times in the last third and see myself rereading this one throughout the years to come. It also is influenced by Romeo & Juliet which like…maybe I’ll reread R&J before I reread this because 98% of the references went over my head!!
What were some of your top reads this month?
