Well… Clearly things are looking up. I don’t think I have ever read so much in one month before. Or maybe that one summer when I marathoned the Percy Jackson series, I don’t know.

link: my review on Letterboxd
7 books/novels (including 3 audiobooks), 4 comic book trade paperbacks, 12 movies.
Pretty good month, eh? In the movie department, I rewatched all of the Marvel Phase 1 and Phase 2 movies, leading up to the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron (my thoughts on that are coming), and then I was finally able to get back on that reading horse. The discovery of audiobooks helped, I’m not going to lie. Add a couple comic book trade paperbacks, and you got yourself a month where you read 11 things just like that. I’m also pretty happy with everything that I read, at the exception maybe of The Goblin Emperor (read my review to know why).
If you remember, I did an April TBR at the beginning of the month, and as predicted, I didn’t stick to it. I read 2 of the 4 I had set up for myself. Still not too bad.
I feel like I’m coming down with a bit of a book hangover after such a month. I’m writing this on May 1st, I finished The Three-Body Problem last night, and now I feel kinda lost as to what to pick up next. I guess you’ll find out soon enough 😉
