April 2015 Wrap-Up

I didn’t even realize it was the end of the month already. That’s how utterly and totally distracted I am by finals week and graduation (which is this Sunday oh my god). Once again, I was waaaay behind on my quota for the month, and once again I’m going to be telling myself to shape up, but I GRADUATE THIS SUNDAY (AAAHH) and should therefore have so much more time on my hands to sit back and read a book in one day. I’m actually extremely excited about this prospect.

But, we’ll see how that ends up going when May’s wrap-up rolls around. For now, here is April’s.

I only read two books this month, compared to my three audio books I listened to due to my obnoxiously long commutes to my internship roughly two hours from my home.

Walk to RememberThe first book I read, A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks, was pulled from my TBR jar as my weekly challenge (which you can follow on Twitter if that’s your thing, I have roughly 200 books crammed in that poor jar). I plan on doing a Book to Movie comparison on this one, since I ended up liking the book more than I had thought I would and remember loving the movie, but that will be sometime in the future when movie-watching is a thing I can do with more freedom. If that interests you, feel free to stay tuned! Nicholas Sparks books are also surprisingly easy to knock out in a few hours, so if you’re struggling to complete a goal of sorts, I suggest picking one up. You’ll get through it in no time.

The Amber Spyglass

The second book I read was less of a full book read and more of me finally finishing up The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials #3) by Philip Pullman. I did a review/thoughts post of all three books in this series once I had completed this one, and I have to say, this series was just amazing. The worlds the books are situated in, the differences and connections between Lyra’s and Will’s respective dimensions, the daemons. It was all so interesting, even though I had some trouble getting through the book. The reasons behind that are better explained in the review post, but if you’re debating picking this series up at any point, consider this my thumbs up to go and do so.

And those are the two books I read this month! Keep your fingers crossed for me, I’m going to try (again) to do better in May. Hopefully, with school out of the way and only work to worry about, for the most part, it’ll be an easier thing to accomplish!

Thanks for reading!
