Reading Queue: April

The Reading QueueHi there!

As of today I’ve officially been a mom for a month! I have to say that it’s pretty darn challenging…but also very, very awesome as well! Colin and I are getting to know each other a little better every single day.

But as I said, it’s a new month which means it is time for a new Reading Queue. I co-host this monthly event with Jessica at Books A True Story, so be sure to visit her blog (and her Reading Queue) too!


How I Did Last Month

I had no idea what to expect reading-wise during my first month with a newborn, but I was pleasantly surprised! I managed to read three books during March. I already loved audiobooks to begin with (which you already know! haha), but I can see that they’re going to be my main source of reading material in these early months because I can “read” and be hands-free!

My April Reading Queue

I have high hopes for this month because I hit the mother load when I visited my local library the other day. I found a bunch of new titles on audiobook! I couldn’t believe some of them were just sitting there on the shelf! I was like “WHAT?! NO ONE HAS CHECKED THESE OUT YET?!” It was awesome. So here are the titles that are in my plans for the month – all are audiobooks.

  1. I hope you are loving being a mom! And getting some sleep! He’s so adorable with all that hair :) Audiobooks and maybe even an ereader are the way to go with a newborn. I’m impressed you read anything! I want to read Shadow Scale, too. I’m curious about Red Queen. I’ve seen it every where but I haven’t seen many reviews … Have fun reading this month. You’re awesome :)

  2. Audiobooks are the best. I LOVE them. For some reason Ruby Red and the rest of the series have escaped my attention, I may have to rectify this issue ;)

    Shadow Cabinet was a ‘meh’ for me, but I went into it with different expectations and really thought it was the final book in the series, so when I wasn’t getting my conclusive ‘THE END’ it threw me slightly.

    Enjoy your books, and your adorable new baby

  3. I’ve heard a lot of moms of babies say that audiobooks are definitely the way to go for reading, especially during feeding time. Glad your library has lots :)

    I am reading Red Queen too! I started it before spring break, but didn’t take it with me, so I plan on picking it back up after I finish my current one (Queen of the Tearling…weirdly both have Queen in them!).

    • Hey there! Yes I love the overdrive app! I still stop by the library though to have something on deck for when none of the books I want are available on it. :) So far, this month hasn’t been as productive regarding reading because we’ve had lots of family in town..we’ll see!
