Reading Review: April 2019

Welcome to my Monthly Reading Review.
This post is my attempt to keep track of how I’m doing with my reading challenges and resolutions.



Last Ones Left Alive by Sarah Davis-Goff

Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield

Sleep by C. L. Taylor

Total Library Books Read This Month: 3
Total Own Books Read This Month: 0
Overall Total Books Read This Month: 3

Total Library Books Read 2019: 11
Total Own Books Read 2019: 2
Overall Total Books Read 2019: 13


It’s a tough choice this month, but I think I’ll go with Sleep by C. L. Taylor. It kept turning the pages, in need of ‘just one more chapter’, and I haven’t read a book so quickly in quite a while, so it was a nice change for me.


My total for this challenge is currently 5 books read. I’ve really fallen behind on this challenge at the moment after receiving an influx in brand new library books, but I’d like to try and add at least a few more to this total. So far I’ve read:

The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding (Poirot #35) by Agatha Christie
The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths
The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas
The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
Taken at the Flood (Poirot #28) by Agatha Christie

This year I’m having a go a something a little different – Beat the Backlist Bingo. I have no idea how many of these boxes I’ll manage to tick but it’s a little extra to add to my challenge.

Book with under 1000 Ratings on GoodReads – 830 for The Stranger Diaries at time of Completion.

Part of a trilogy – The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

New-to-me Author – Kate Mascarenhas with The Psychology of Time Travel

Cover with your Favourite Colour – Taken at the Flood (Poirot #28) by Agatha Christie


So far this year I’ve read 13 books.


  • I think I covered ‘trying a variety of genres’ this month as my reading took in historical, post-apocalyptic and psychological thriller. This latter is definitely something I haven’t read too much of so far, but I enjoyed Sleep so much that I might try to read more in the genre in future.
  • I’m keeping up with my monthly update posts to keep track of my reading.

So concludes April’s Reading Review. See you again next month
