Monthly Reads: April 2013

Monthly Reads highlights the books I've got in my TBR for that month. It's a way of sharing the ones I'm excited for and trying to relieve the pressure of "having" to read an ARC or new release.

Happy April, all! Every month, I do an absolutely insane amount of books I want to read, and I can never, ever get there. And that's fine, that's the point of the monthly reads. Some I'll get to, others I will that aren't there - there's no pressure. March was such an insane month (there wasn't even a Monthly Reads post because I knew it would be impossible) that I kind of lost a lot of reading mojo. Which is also fine! But I'm approaching April with a revised outlook: a simple amount of books because I need to find my flow again. Very few obligation/review books.

    Catching Jordan and The Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality were really cute books! They were just the sort of contemporary I was craving a few weeks ago, and I definitely hope that you enjoy them both.

    The Sea of Tranquility and This Is What Happy Looks Like are also coming up for me, and I look forward to reading both.

    I can not wait to hear what you think of Dare You To! Also, I have This Is What Happy Looks Like sitting next to my bed. I was staring at it longingly for a while, when I was supposed to be reading my library book. I have too many library books out now, but I think I'm going to take a couple days to really dig into my books and get through them, because there are SO MANY that I want to read.

    This Is What Happy Looks Like and Invisibility look amazing! Can't wait to read. I'm also pretty excited for Dare You To. Can't wait to see what you think of these pretties!

    Happy Reading,
