It’s now April, which means we’re a third of the way through the challenge. In addition to this, it’s also a very special month for my co-host Kay Cassidy, whose first book The Cinderella Society was released this month. I was lucky enough to read The Cinderella Society last year and absolutely adore it. It’s the epitome of chick lit – fun, flirty, and with a great message. To celebrate her release, Kay will be our featured author this month and we’ll be chatting with her tomorrow (Monday, April 26) at 8:00 pm EST. I hope to see you all there!
Okay, now for a quick update on my reading. This month has been very kind to me in terms of the challenge. I read three of the seventeen titles already on my list and added another, giving me grand total of six books read.
One of the books, The Summer I Turned Pretty, is one I’ve wanted to read for quite awhile and am so happy I had the chance to read it for the challenge. It was fabulous, breathtaking, and wonderfully written! You can read my full (gushing) review of it here. In addition to that I also read Breathing by Cheryl Rene Herbsman, which is another one that has been on my reading list for quite awhile. I was once again pleasantly surprised, finding it to be not only a great chick lit read, but also very deep. Both of these books had great voice and explored the psyches of some great young woman.
My other reads this month include: Runaway by Meg Cabot and Scandal by Kate Brian (a participant in the challenge!). Both of these were the newest installments in some of my favorite series and, surprisingly, they both ended up being some of my favorites of the series.
That’s all the progress I’ve made this month. Now, what about you? Link your reviews and/or check-in posts to the Mr. Linky below.
See you tomorrow evening!
