Reading Review: April 2020

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.

MY READ OF THE MONTH

A Different Kind of Evil (Agatha Christie #2) by Andrew Wilson.  Pretty much no contest on this one as it’s the only book I’ve read and finished this month.

BEAT THE BACKLIST

My total for this challenge is currently 9 books read.   So far I’ve read:

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
The Six by Luca Veste
Hercule Poirot’s Christmas (Poirot #20) by Agatha Christie
Stoker’s Wilde by Steven Hopstaken and Melissa Prusi
The Poison Song (The Winnowing Flame #3) by Jen Williams
The Colour of Magic (Discworld #1) by Terry Pratchett
Dracul by Dacre Stoker and J. D. Barker
The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg
A Different Kind of Evil (Agatha Christie #2) by Andrew Wilson

Beat the Backlist Bingo is making another appearance this year. I have no idea how many categories I’ll manage to complete but it’s a little extra to add to my challenge.

           

              

Borrowed it for the cover – The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. I wanted to read this from the moment I first heard about it, but I’m using it for this category because I never got tired of looking at the cover. I also think this may be a contender for the category of a top 10 read of the year.

Released in the 2010’s – The Six by Luca Veste

Written before 2010 – Hercule Poirot’s Christmas (Poirot #20) by Agatha Christie

Wish you had read it sooner – Stoker’s Wilde by Steven Hopstaken and Melissa Prusi

Book you never finished before – The Colour of Magic (Discworld #1) by Terry Pratchett

One word title – Dracul by Dacre Stoker and J. D. Barker

Genre you never/rarely read – The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg

GOODREADS

I’ve read 11 books so far this year.

GOALS

  • My Beat the Backlist challenge is ongoing. So far I’ve read 9 books.
  • I’ve finally picked up my first audio book, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, read by Jim Dale. It’s ongoing at the moment.
  • I’m continuing my monthly update posts to record my reading and any challenge progress I’ve made.

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

    I’ve never heard of this Beat the Backlist bingo, it sounds so fun and really encouraging to reduce your unread books! I’ve been hearing about Dracul for a while now, it sounds really intriguing. Might be a fun read alongside Dracula!
