March Wrap-Up and April TBR

March Wrap-Up
You may remember last month that I challenged myself to read 10 classic books during March, unfournately (and rather embarrassingly) I only managed to complete two that I had on the list. These two were Doctor Zhiavgo by Boris Pasternak and Mousetrap and Other Plays by Agatha Christie. However, despite my failings in completing my TBR I did manage to read eight other books, including: Amsterdam and Enduring Love both by Ian McEwan, The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks, Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut, Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare, Cold Hands, Warm Heart by Jill Wolfson, Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans and Stolen by Lucy Christopher. Reviews of a couple of these books will be up within the month.

April TBR
The month of April is going to be crazy busy for me, not only in the sense of reading but with school and other things. Despite this, my TBR list is absolutely bursting at the seams this month. As always * means that I am currently reading this book.

Yep, 25 books there to read in 30 days. Obviously I don’t believe I’m going to get through all of these books, and some have more importance over others. I’m also planning to get reviews up during the month as well as some author interviews, giveaways and other fun things like that. What are you all planning to read this month?


  1. Wow! That's a whole-lot-a books! You should definitely be proud of yourself. Dr. Z is practically a door stopper it is so big!

  2. Surprisingly I've already managed to finish one, so I consider that I'm going well so far! Dr. Z is definitely massive, not as big as the collection of Agatha Christie plays was (750 odd pages).
