My April Reading Map

This past weekend was Spring 2014 Bloggiesta. One of the things I did was work on my Reading Map for April. It is always good to take time out for a look at what I accomplished last month and ‘map out’ my plan for the new month. is my April Reading Map!

First, this is what my map looked like at the beginning of March. I didn’t accomplish what I set out to do, partially because I took an impulsive trip to the beach. I got some reading done while I was there, but it wasn’t the reading I’d planned to do. And because I was at the beach instead of book club, and I’d read Orphan Train previously, I did not take time to reread it. Too many books and too little know how it goes! And since some were really April reads that I’d bumped to March, I don’t feel bad about not completing my list. Reviews are linked.


Did Not Read - Moved to April

Unplanned Reading
  • The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier (audios book from library; review to come)
  • The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh (ARC from
  • Mrs. Lincoln’s Rival by Jennifer Ciaverini (ARC from

My updated map for April appears below. It includes the readings I didn’t get done from March (which were originally meant for April anyway!) I know it is a lot to read, but hopefully I can do it! And I don’t mind if I don’t get to a couple and have to bump them to next month. I would rather have a ‘next read’ in mind than have to stop to think about what to read next when I finish a book.

Do you have a ‘map’. If so, share it below in the comments. Maybe I’ll see something I want to add to my list! And if you want to see what else I accomplished during Bloggiesta, take a look at my progress post here!

  1. Looks like some good reading. The Spring Reading Thing got me to make a list like this. Mine's probably too long, too, but I'm making a stab at it.
