April 2015 Goals

I'm quite ambitious with what I'm planning for this month, yet instead of apologizing I'm just saying in advance I might not finish reading them all! ;) 

I think I did quite well on March (Goals / Recap) considering the stress and endless To-Do lists.. This month I don't have anything special besides private lessons I'm taking to remind myself of a very important course I totally forgot from my B.A. (that would be necessary for my M.A.). But I don't think it would really interfere with my reading or rather I hope not! :) 

Basically what we have here it's a mix of a lot of things I'm really pumped about!

Crash & Burn (Cut & Run, #9) ★ ★ ★ ¾
This past two months (February-March) I've been re-listening and re-reading the AMAZING MM Romance / Suspense Cut & Run series in wait for this very last installment. I'm totally and absolutely pumped about it (while also being scared and sad to let go of Ty and Zane..) yet before I delve into it, I still have to re-read the one before last (though it wasn't my favorite..)

Finding Purgatory ★ ★ ★ ★ 
I love Kristina's writing, this book might only be her third published work but I added it to my immediate list as soon as I heard it was out. HIGHLY recommend "Duplicity" and "One to Tell the Grandkids" by her. I'm not sure if it's even a Romance novel or some sort of coming of age on the New Adult spectrum but I'm excited anyhow :)

While the previous installment wasn't exactly what I was expecting, the BDB series is still one of my absolute favorite Paranormal Romance series. Also I'm really interested of finally getting iAm and Trez's story. 

The Shameless Hour (The Ivy Years, #4)   ★ ★ ★ ★ 
Are you ready for Bella getting her HEA? I am! I'm always ready when there is a new book by Sarina. I absolutely ADORE her New Adult series "The Ivy Years". Last month the 3rd book in the Contemporary Romance series "Gravity" was out and I was really excited to read it, I'm really happy I'm getting a new book by her so soon after! 

There You Stand (Between Breaths, #5)   ★ ★ ★ ★ 
Christina is definitely a favorite, on the auto-pre-order. I LOVE the New Adult Between Breaths series and can't wait to read this one. Unlike the previous ones in the series this one is a MM New Adult. 

Tristan & Jared (Market Garden #1, #2, #6)   ★ ★ ★ ★ 
[Quid Pro Quo, Taking It Off & Payoff]
Nick & Spenser (Market Garden #3, #4)   ★ ★ ★ 
[If It Flies, If It Fornicates]
Capture & Surrender (Market Garden, #5)   ★ ★ ★ ★ 
I read two books by Witt and Aleksandr together - the first being "Unhinge the Universe" and the second "Hostile Ground" both left me wanting MORE! So now I'm returning to reading them together in this series. These are mostly short novellas, two bundled up into two couples and two are individual read. 

Scorpion (Memory of Scorpions, #1)   ★ ★ ★ (DNF 55%)
Lying with Scorpions (Memory of Scorpions, #2)
A Taste of Poison (Memory of Scorpions, #3)
One of my yearly goals for 2015 is read as much as possible by Aleksandr. I LOVE his writing, his characters the journey they go through to get to their HEA together. 
I started adding all of them to my "to read" list, but as I went looking for them (I usually organize all the books before I even look for them online and from where I can order them since I do the lists WAY in advance) I realizes some aren't available anymore.. 
Lucky for me, just this week Aleksandr published a "Taster Anthology" with all his individual work containing author notes, synopsis as well as a few chapter from each novel. Go check that out! I'm going to go through it next month to see how to organize the next ones. 

A Different Blue   ★ ★ ★ 
The first book I"ve read by Amy was the New Adult novel "Making Faces" which made a HUGE impression on me. I loved every inch of it. The characters both the main ones as well as the side characters where beautifully written and the plot was sensitive and felt very genuine. Later on I tried more by her and I can't say I was as impressed as I was with my first read but this one was also highly recommended to me so I'm really hoping it would be as good.
I had this book on this list originally but as the month went by I saw that I'm just not getting to it :( then when I decided to abandon "Memory of Scorpions" I decided to add it again for this month. 

That's it! It's mostly MM Romance this month with a bit of Paranormal strike with "The Shadows" and a few New Adult with "Finding Purgatory" and "The Shameless Hour". No new authors this month, only re-visiting ones I enjoyed before.

Have great spring readings! I know I will :)

Check out more of my Recap and Goals of the past months!
