I really feel like I got back into the swing of things with my reading in April, which has made me really happy. Although it doesn’t seem like I made huge progress based on my results above, I managed to incorporate reading back into my daily routine and that’s what’s most important to me.

I had started reading I Let You Go late last year, but hadn’t managed to finish the entire thing. I’m glad I finally got around to finishing it because it was an excellent book and something I’d highly recommend picking up. I was less impressed with The Girl Before, but I’ll be discussing that further in my review later in the month. I think listening to the audio version really let the book down in this case.

I also started reading IT by Stephen King this month, which I’ve made quite a bit of headway with but I feel like will end up being a two-to-three month reading adventure because it’s so long. I’m really looking forward to the film coming out later this year, and I think it’s one of the best possible source materials to be transalated into a film. I watched the trailer recently, and it looked so amazing that it inspired me to pick up the book. I feel like a lot of Stephen King’s words are done an injustice when a film adaptation is made, but this one looks incredible, and seems to have an amazing cast. All I can say is I’m glad the phase of people dressing up like clowns and running around the neighbourhood appears to be well and truly over.

I fell quite heavily into a reading slump in February, but thankfully having a week off work and some time travelling helped get me back into the swing of things in March. February felt like a bit of a slump-y month in general, and I think that was due to be not being able to find a proper work/life balance. Hopefully I have that under control now, and April will be far more successful for me in a few different areas of life.

Honestly, the reason I didn’t get around to read all of the books on my January TBR this month is because I saw that Final Girls by Riley Sager was up for review on Netgalley. I’d heard so many good things about it, so when I was offered the change to read and review the book it jumped to the top of my TBR pile. I’m happy with my reading this month, and I’m glad I found a way to include audiobooks in my daily routine. Having said that, February is going to be pretty hectic for me at work so I probably won’t have as much time to listen. Here’s to February reading!
