It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 30): 04/30/18

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 30)
Hosted by Kathryn of Book Date.

It's the last Monday of April. I've read 29 books, so a book a day on average for the month. As the year progresses, I'm focusing more and more on newly published books. I have a bunch of books I've purchased in the last two months that I want to read. I have, so far, read thirty-one newly published books. That accounts for a quarter of all the books I've read so far.

This weekend I think most movie goers were seeing a certain Avengers film. We, however, went to a re-screening of Labyrinth.

I'm finishing an arc at the moment, but in the past week, apart from another arc, the other books read where ones downloaded to my Kindle that have been sat there for a while. Have a great week.

Cross Country Cat looks cute, and Title Wave looks like a fun cozy! Paper Girls too... sigh I still haven't gotten to those.

Cross Country Cat is an older picture and the start of a series about a Siamese cat and his adventures with his human family. The entire series remains popular.

You had a great month in April. I didn't do nearly as well. I'm hoping May will be better. I love the covers of your books. Everything, especially the ones with cats, look great. Enjoy and have a great week!

My April list is here if you want to see the whole thing. All the reviews and all the books I read. I hope in May you get to read everything that you want to.

I have been seeing the Mrs Bird book around a lot. The Clockwork Boys looks good too. Enjoy all your books and have a great week.

My copy of Dear Mrs. Bird only arrived last night. I thought I had bought it ages ago and then realized I hadn't. The Clockwork Boys is a typical fantasy adventure story with steampunk elements.
