MountainKat | 23505 comments Let's reflect on the best and worst of the previous month's books.....

I know I can get so focused on what is next that I forget about all the wonderful books I read for the previous month's challenges! May is here! One third of the year is over - I'm not kidding here! Time is moving at light speed and I'm sure I'm not the only feels that way. There never seems to be enough time to do everything I want to, though I do manage to squeeze in some reading. (Thank goodness for audiobooks!) How did April treat you? Did it go by in a flash for you too?

Did you discover some gems last month? DNF a few? Find your new book boyfriend or a heroine who personifies TSTL? Come on, we all want to know! Was April a great reading month for you?

MountainKat | 23505 comments I read a lot of really good books last month, but only one got 5 Stars - Red Dirt Heart 3 by N.R. Walker. It was just wonderful and I can't wait to read more!

The other stand outs included:

When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn - Not my favorite of the series, but the epilogue made up for everything!
Bay of Sighs by Nora Roberts - Love her trilogies, they work for me.
Luscious by Lexi Blake - Sweet little addition to the series.
Calculated in Death by J.D. Robb - Hard to believe this series stays so good, but it does!
Roman by Sawyer Bennett - So glad this series continues, I am so enjoying them all.

No duds for me last month - yay!

Marsha Ramnanan | 2 comments Best read - The Lion's Lady (Crown's Spies, #1) by Julie Garwood
this was just such a funny and well-written book and reminded me of why I started writing.

Not in love with: City of Dark Magic (City of Dark Magic, #1) by Magnus Flyte
but it was probably because the blurb made me expect a totally different kind of book
