I managed to read a bunch of books this month! I'm so proud of myself, and I think I was only able to do so because a) there were days where I was reading a couple of books at a time, and b) I took part in the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon!

  1. I really want to read The 5th Wave. I hear it's really good! And the cover of ARC light is so pretty. Code Name Verity was really great too. I enjoyed the historical aspect of it. And those twists at the end!!!

    1. I quite enjoyed The 5th Wave! I liked the main female and her love interest. He was great! I'm DYING to read Code Name Verity, Tatum made me so jealous when she got it!

  2. Thirteen books isn't bad Amber!
    And whoa Tatum, you read 17 books this month too! :D
    Which reminds me, I have to read Code Name Verity sometime soon.

    1. It's definitely not bad. It's way better than I was expecting! Ermehgerd, I NEEEEEEEEED to read Code Name Verity.

  3. oooh, you guys were on a role in april! I am glad you read Where You Are Amber! I must go read your review now!
    And wow, Tatum, 17 books? nice! I am glad you read Onyx, you should definitely pick up Opal! I just read it last week and it was awesome!

  5. I can't wait to read The 5th Wave, so glad you enjoyed it! Arclight has been getting some rave reviews too. Great reading month!

  6. Ooh, Arclight beat out The 5th Wave! I'm pretty sure most people would not agree with that call. They were actually pretty similar reads for me, oddly enough, like they had the exact same issues. Also, girl should go to the first guy she crushes on in neither of them. Just no to that. No, no, no.

  7. Wow! You guys had a productive reading month! Hopefully May will be just as successful!!!
