The Reading Queue: April 2014

The Reading Queue is a monthly meme hosted by 
This is where we can all share what our reading plans for the month, 
and give a quick lineup and/or recap of the books we read last month... 

*What I read last month (March)...
I did not do very well with sticking to my TBR nor reading last month :(
I'm just realizing now that I truly only read 3 books... 3 children's books and 1 novella - don't really count since they aren't really long. I do count these on my goodreads since they are or will be reviewed, but technically, they're not full length books, sooo... 
I'm hoping that April goes a lot better!!! I really need to catch up on my reviews!!!

- Ivy in Bloom by Vanita Oelschlager (C)
- Even Monsters by A. J. Smith (C)
I'll Never Let You Go by Marianne Richmond (C)
- Smile, Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen (C)
Liv, Forever by Amy Talkington (YA)
The Shadow Prince (Mortal Enchantment #0.5) by Stacey O'Neale (YA)
- City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #3) by Cassandra Clare (YA)
- Twelve Steps by Veronica Bartles (YA)

*What I'm currently reading...
April is trying to read all the review books that I can month! And I am super excited for all of them!
I am currently reading a paperback, hardback and eBook - what I pick up depends on my 'reading situation' and mood. I can hold a hardback while snuggled up on the couch, but not rocking the baby to sleep, I need a paperback for that. And my kindle is great when I'm lying in bed, lol!...  I'm sure I'm not the only person that does this, right?

- Two Sisters by Mary Hogan (A) for review.
- The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson (MG) for book tour.
- Foretold (Sister's of Fate #1) by Rinda Elliot (YA) for review.

*My April TBR...

- The Ninja Librarians:The Accidental Keyhand by Jennifer Swann Downey (MG) for a book tour.
- Between Two Worlds by Katherine Kirkpatrick (YA) for a book tour. 
- The Break-Up Artist by Philip Siegel (YA) for a blog tour.
- One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern (A) for review.

- The A-Word (Sweet Dead Life #2) by Joy Preble (YA) for review.

And if I have time...
- City of Fallen Angels (Mortal Instruments #4) by Cassandra Clare (YA)
I really, really want to keep up with this series and hopefully read ALL the books in the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series by the end of the year! Because I am dying to get to the Bane Chronicles - Magnus is my fave character so far!

The Fault in Our Stars (HB) by John Green (YA)
I know, I know. I keep putting this off. But Jessica of Step Into Fiction and I are really going to try to get together on this one this month!

  1. Chapel Wars is on my April TBR list also! Hope you enjoy your books!

  2. Did you get to City of Glass? It was my favorite book of that trilogy.

    Oooh I wanted to read The Ninja Librarians. Tell me if it’s good!

  3. I loved TFIOS. It is a great audiobook. And children books and novellas count. As long as there are written words on a page and you read them they count. :)
