The Sunday Salon.comHappy May! Hm, as I type this I realize I haven’t done a Sunday Salon post for a while. Two orders of business for today. First, I’ve decided to take the next week off. I’ll be visiting family, so I won’t get much reading done anyway, plus I think I could use a break. The only thing I’ll be posting is the Reading Buddies discussion for Animal Farm by George Orwell on Friday. After that, I should be back to posting the following Monday. Have a wonderful week!

Second, it’s time again for another monthly review! Here’s what my April looked like:


Looking Back: April

Total books read: 9
Total pages read: 3,425 (almost double any other month, thanks to the Readathon and the Chaos Walking series…whoa!)
Favorite book: I loved seven of the nine books I read, which is great! If pressed, I’d probably have to choose the Chaos Walking series, though.
Least favorite book: The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon, hands down.


Total audiobooks listened to: 4
Total hours listened: 33 hours and 27 minutes
Favorite audiobook: The Imposter by Damon Galgut (read by my favorite, Humphrey Bower!)
Least favorite audiobook: Probably Freakonomics. It was interesting and well read, but I got a little tired of statistics.

  1. Wow! How on earth do you get so much reading done, and what is Chaos Walking? I only managed to read 5 books (most of which I enjoyed immensely) which is good for me. Looks like you had an amazing April – hope your May treats you just as well.

    1. Chaos Walking is a young adult series by Patrick Ness. Kind of dystopian fantasy esque. Not really sure how to classify it, but it deals with good vs. evil and a planet where information is even more omnipresent than ours!

  2. Hello!!! I am fellow member of Chicks on Lit on goodreads! I found your blog there. My April was only OK. I didn’t get to read as much as I wanted. But I know May will be great!

    1. Hi, Angie, thanks for stopping by! Sorry I’ve been a bit absent…May has been a busier month than I’d anticipated.
