It’s been two months since I’ve done one of these so I’ll be doing a wrap up for both April and May today. In that time I’ve done 14 reviews and 2 posts
I had planned on having a few more come out, but I got caught up in 50+ hour working weeks and… you know… things happened!
Song of the Soul was the last book in the series. I enjoyed every book in this series and it was a REALLY close call between this one and Venators: Promises Forged (review coming in June).
I know not every series ends well. But Lisa didn’t let that happen this time!
You can see reviews for all seven books in the series on the Muse Chronicles page.
My Least Fav
Overall, I enjoyed Holding out for a Hero. I just found parts could be improved upon to make it amazing. It just wasn’t quite there enough for me to fully engage with it and love it like I’ve loved other books.
Check out my review to see why I thought it could be improved.
Bookish Goals Progress
Well I FINALLY finished reviewing all the books in one of Tamora Pierce’s books. I think I’ll wait until I’ve actually written all the reviews for the next world before scheduling those reviews. That way you won’t have to wait so long and with random gaps between reviews to see what I thought.
I nailed all the series reviews I had planned (Time for Alexander and the Muse Chronicles) YAY! I even have a few more planned. Some I’ve read most of, some I’ve read a couple and want to finish. But you’ll see those coming over the next few months.
I’ve read 30% of the books for the Aussie Author Bingo and 64% of the A-Z of Characters. I’ve got a few of those planned to be reviewed in the next month or so, so that number will keep going up! I’m slowly getting there!
Other than the fact I’m stuck on a book with a character whose name starts with U. I mean seriously. How have I not come across a single book where a character’s name starts with a U this year?!
Otherwise, I’m not doing so great at my reading goals. Does anyone want to help me with my book database? It’s just data entry! lol…
Personal Goals Progress
Well with this damned coronavirus going around my gym has shut down. And since I have asthma that’s triggered by the cold and we’re coming into winter where I live, I won’t be going back for a bit once it’s allowed to reopen. Coz you know. Compromised respiratory system and respiratory virus isn’t really a good mix.
I have been able to keep up my running though! I’m now up to Week 6 Day 1 (5 mins jogging, 3 mins walk, 8 mins jogging, 3 mins walk, 5 mins jogging) and going strong. I stay on the same day until I feel like I can do it comfortably before moving on.
Otherwise I’ve just been working like crazy for 2 clients. One we’re still working on the prototype (once we’ve got the template nailed they’ll be super quick to make in the future) and one is a contract where I’m employed as an individual. But it’s still doing the same work I do as my business so I’m super happy!
Anyway, assuming I can remember (and feel like looking at a screen) to schedule all my reviews as I’ve got planned, you’ll be getting one or two reviews each week until end of August.

You still had a couple of amazing reading months while being so busy!
Thanks. I feel like I got REALLY behind but I’m trying to keep up!
I love wrap ups! I particularly love how you state which was your favorite and which was your least favorite. Great post!
Thank you 😊 I feel like it’s a nice easy summary for everyone that way so I’m glad you like it!
great wrap-up! it looks like you’ve read some good reads these past two months. hopefully june is a great reading month for you as well <3
Thank you! So far I’m on track to keep up with my schedule, fingers crossed it keeps up!
Damn. you’re going great with your reading! The charactername.. I mean it’s very hard to find a name starting with U in general xD The only one I can think of is Ulysses :’)
Thanks, yea all the names I can think of are old school. Hoping I come across one soon though. I think the rules said that that’s not one of the letters than can be anywhere in the name 🙁
