Whew! My April 2023 reading month was an absolute whirlwind in the best way possible.
If I thought the previous three reading months were good, April definitely blew them out of the water. I read 27 books this month, which is tied with December 2021 as being the most I’ve ever read in one month. Now, I will say that a lot of the books I picked up were graphic novels, and I had my fair share of rereads, which helped me fly through. But this was one stellar month.
I DNF’d (did not finish) 2 books (The Co-Op and The Cartographers), both of which I will probably pick up again in the future. I reread 7 books, including all of the Heartstopper graphic novels, which make me so dang happy – especially with the news about season 2 of the show! The stand-out titles were definitely Happy Place, Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers, and On the Come Up. Honestly, with how wonderful April was, I’m somehow even more excited for May! I might not read as many books, but I have high hopes for them all.
Keep on scrolling to see my ratings for all 27 books I read during April!
