Kadijah Michelle (kadmich) | 2176 comments Love the PopSugar challenge...I will be adding that one to my feed. I hope a bunch of us join in because sometimes that's the only way I can find ways to fill in some of them ('borrowing' titles from others). I love how we are all willing to share in the feed.

Stephanie | 316 comments In April, I didn't do what I hoped for, but still not too bad. I read 2,104 pages in a total of 6 books! I had a couple of favorite reads this month:

Insatiable (Insatiable, #1) by J.D. Hawkins & The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1) by Rick Yancey

Insatiable was definitely a guilty pleasure & I absolutely loved it!
I have a feeling The 5th Wave for probably be my new favorite series.

Also another one I didn't think I would like that hugely surprised me was Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple .
It made me smile so hard :) Really happy with what I read this month.
