In the month of April I read 5 books, 4 were print/eBook and one was an audiobook. I did start another book but have not finished it yet. I decided that I was going to give audiobooks another chance and the story that I listened to actually worked well for me. I’m not sure that I’m going to continue with audiobooks though. As always the books will be listed in the order that I read them with Goodreads links.

My 2017 year in review is brought to you by my Goodreads Year In Review and some of my own statistics.
This month I am quite pleased with what I read and how much I read. This month I read eight books, six of them were graphic novels and two of those six I had to read for class. I will edit this post later with graphics, stats, and links to the reviews. I am also in the process of redesigning a few things. As always, books are listed in the order that I read them.
