2011 100+ Reading Challenge: April
Well, wouldn't you know it, another month is done!
I didn't get as much reading done as I had hoped, but oh well. The year is still young!
22-26. Apothecarius Argentum vols 3-8 by Tomomi Yamashita. The good news: this series is awesome! I loved it! I couldn't put it down. The bad news: The English translated series stopped at part of volume 9. Apparently, DC Comics decided to drop the branch that was responsible for translating the series into English for American readers before volume 9 was released. And of course, that would be precisely when the sh*t hits the fan in the series and you're left waiting to find out what happens. So this means that if I ever want to finish the series, I need to brush up on my Japanese or wait a long time for fans to try and translate it themselves. [sigh] But it was good nonetheless!
27. She Climbed Across the Table by Jonathan Lethem. This was a very interesting book and a fast read. In a nutshell, it's Alice in Wonderland in a university physics department and that summary probably doesn't do the story justice. It was sent to me by a coworker in CT and when I started reading the first few pages, I was like, WTF?! But I couldn't put it down. So I kept reading and before you know it, it was 4 am and I had finished the book in about 7 hours. I say give it a chance, you might be pleasantly surprised!
28. Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning. FINALLY finished the series. And it was totally worth the wait! It answered all of my questions, had a great ending, and left me on the edge of my seat the entire time.
So that's my list for this month! I wish I'd read more, but May is another month!
