April Wrap Up

April!

In April I read 10 books for a total of 3,339 pages and an average of 111 pages per day. I had an excellent month and thoroughly enjoyed most of my reads, most notably Gone with the Wind. Woof! After 2 months I finally finished that wonderful beast (and yet last month I still read more pages).

Reviewed:

Piratica III: The Family Sea by Tanith Lee
First Sentence: Finally Art Blastside went upstairs to see her child.

Armstrong & Charlie by Steven B. Frank
First Sentence: “Guys, we should go in.”

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
First Sentence: Scarlett O’Hara was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when caught by her charm as the Tarleton twins were.

A Pocket Full of Murder by R.J. Anderson
First Sentence: Propped on the flour-dusted stand, the Book of Common Magic looked as innocent as the ordinary cookbooks tucked behind it.

Hyperbole & a Half by Allie Brosh
First Sentence: It seems like there should be some sort of introduction to this.

A few thoughts on Goodreads:

Agents of Dreamland by Caitlín R. Kiernan
First Sentence: Here’s the scene: It’s Thursday evening, and the Signalman sits smoking and nursing a flat Diet Dr. Pepper, allowing himself to breathe a stingy sigh of relief as twilight finally, mercifully comes crashing down on the desert.

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken
First Sentence: It was dusk – winter dusk.

Saga vol 7 by Brian K. Vaughan

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Patterson
