March in Review

Wow, it's already April? Holy crap! Summer is coming up sooner than I thought and I'm way behind on my reading goals already! *sigh*

So, for April - I've decided to do a contest. Any meaningful comments you leave will be counted towards the contest. Meaningful means a full sentence or two that doesn't just say something like "great review", etc. There will be at least one winner. All posts in April count except for contest/contest winner posts. Winner(s) will win an April YA release book of their choosing (as long as I can find it). I prefer to order via Book Depository. Here's a post by Wicked Lil Pixie that has all of April's releases.

We will have a daily poem posted thanks to April being National Poetry Month as well as some other features going on. So make sure to leave a comment. :)

  1. Not one of those have I read, though I am yearning for Delirium.

    Happy April Reading!

  2. I want Delirium, too. I think it would make the perfect companion read for XVI by Julia Karr and Matched by Ally Condie, all dytopians about broken views of love.
    PS How do you manage to read so much? *-*

  3. I cannot explain my love for books. LOL. Well maybe I can but it will take way too long! LOL. Where do you find the time to read and blog! I find it amazing how bloggers read and write reviews! I'm only in high school and yet I'm barely reading these days! But you know I'm managing. LOL. I think I need to expand my vocabulary haha!


  4. I really want to read Falling Under. And I am absolutely dying to read Delirium (am going to pick it up from the library tomorrow).

    Zombie Girrrl I am also dystopian obsessed!

  5. I was able to borrow an ARC of Delirium. It is a delicious book. Love no longer exists, except it does! I expect this will be a huge hit.
    I can't wait to read Middle Grade Shorts and Bloody Jack.


Leave some love!
