As of right now, my current book count stands at 112 new and 27 re-reads. Seems that I am continuing with my theme of re-reading some of my favorites this year. This month, I re-read one of my all time favorite series, Michelle Sagara’s Chronicles of Elantra. I probably should have read House War (another favorite) first as that is the series that has the next book out (May5), but I’m sure that is going to be the next on the re-read list.
I’m doing a lot of re-reading because I am STILL struggling to find new authors to read that I love. Heck, I’d be thrilled with even just one at this point. Sure, I’ve found a couple of new ones that I like, but I don’t love them and that is getting frustrating. I have grabbed more new books lately that don’t just jump out and grab me when I read the synopsis on the off chance that something will spark when I read the actual book. That hasn’t quite worked yet, but I’m still holding out hope.
Something I realized the other day is that I’m not actually writing very many reviews. While I think it is probably impossible for me to write a review for every single book I read (my current average is about a book and a half a day, so that would be a bit much), I do think I should probably be writing up at least a few more than I currently am. I didn’t realize how difficult it might be to write up something on a book that isn’t either awesome or awful and since I haven’t found much in the first category and try exceptionally hard to avoid the second, that doesn’t leave me with all that much to write about, so I’m going to work on that for next month.
April 7th brings the new release in the Jane Yellowrock series, Dark Heir. I’ve got that one on pre-order and cannot wait to get it. The 7th is also the release day for Diana Rowland‘s latest in the Kara Gillian Series, Vengeance of the Demon. This one I don’t have on my To Buy list, but I am on the waiting list through the library. So glad that I know I’ve got some things on my upcoming reading list to really look forward to.
