April Reading Round-Up

rdg-roundup-001

We are already at the end of April – with all the showers, that will bring May flowers. April has been a healthier month for my husband and I and it has ended with good news – my knee replacement takes place May 31st.

It’s time to share what I have been reading this past month.  I will summarize how I did with each challenge as well.

The total read for April was 33 books.   Here is the breakdown:

Fantasy -7

Urban fantasy – 3

Paranormal – 6

Time travel – 1

Romance – 6

Historical romance – 2

Mystery – 1

PB – 7

I continue to record in more detail where the books originated – from the library, on my TBR shelves (bought/gifted or won) or an e-book. Here’s the breakdown:

Library reads – 20

TBR/owned books –5

E-books –8
