Another month, another look back at how my last month of reading went. April was a pretty busy month for me personally as I made trips to Denver and Los Angeles to see family for various reasons, but thanks to a couple of plane rides, I still managed to stay on pace towards my 100 books read in the year goal. This month I had a book to read provided by a publisher, the chance to finally finish one of my incomplete series, a couple of unknown authors, and a couple novels by a favorite.
The list of books I finished in April:
- Paradox Series: Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach
- The Hellequin Chronicles: Crimes Against Magic by Steve McHugh
- Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know Of) by F.J.R. Titchenell
- A Coming of Age by Timothy Zahn
- Deadman Switch by Timothy Zahn
- The Seafort Saga: Patriarch’s Hope by David Feintuch
- The Seafort Saga: Children of Hope by David Feintuch
- A Sword Into Darkness by Thomas A. Mays
- The Churn: An Expanse Novella by James S.A. Corey
Somewhat surprisingly, Fortune’s Pawn was probably my favorite book of the month. I love all of the books in The Seafort Saga, but Fortune’s Pawn was an awful fun time while I was reading it. I think I really had been starved for some light-hearted sci-fi action and didn’t really know it. The same could be said for Crimes Against Magic, it was good fun, exciting characters, and off the beaten path for me personally. Looking back on the month, I have to say none of the books were disappointing, which isn’t always the case. Usually I have one or maybe two that really didn’t do it for me, but not this time.
I was really happy that I managed to finish the final books of The Seafort Saga after so long of trying to get that series completed. Those books might not be for everyone, but I really liked them a lot, and now I can say I’ve read them, and that I’ve finished off one of the bigger uncompleted series on my list. It’s all smooth sailing from here now, right?
