Mama OWL Blog: #50Books2013 - April Round-Up

#50Books2013 - April Round-Up

Tuesday, 30 April 2013

Spring has finally sprung, I hope that everyone is still enjoying the #50Books2013 challenge regardless of where you are in it and how many you have read.

I'm three quarters of the way through book 12, not the progress I would have liked I must admit but it has been a busy month with a little family weekend getaway, school holidays and of course E's 3rd birthday.
I have found my reading mojo again and I am back to spending my evenings with my face buried in my kobo rather than lazing in front of the television. Long may it continue! I have a cracking to-read list thanks to you 50Books2013-ers and the lovely people of Twitter so I better get on with it!

I'm currently reading the fourth book of the Caster Chronicles novels, Beautiful Redemption. I am really enjoying this series and the last book ended on such a cliffhanger I had to immediately begin the fourth to find out what happened next, it certainly has me gripped.

Ups & Downs, Smiles & Frowns has enjoyed three five star reads (as well as a four star) this month, which includes The secret Holocaust diaries: The untold story of Nonna Bannister, check out her reviews to see what she thought. Ignoring Life, One Book At A Time has indulged in classic literature, vampire mythology and Clarissa Dickson Wright's A History of English Food this month, take a look and see what she thought.

Mumturnedmom has just started her 13th book of the challenge, and reviews books 9-12 for us this month. The Ramblings of a Formerly Rock'n'Roll Mum is up to 14 reads so far and has been bargain hunting for her books this month, nothing over a pound and in her words "all worth more in terms of pleasurable reading!". She's unearthed some real treasures including the "perfectly lovely" Sealed With A Kiss by Rachael Lucas.

Find out what has been happening on Pepys Road with Little Super Sparks' review of Capital by John Lancaster, and if she recommends letting your husband choose your reading material... Ojo's World is another that has made it up to book 14 and has shared links to her reading list over on her blog.

Join in with us on Twitter using hashtag #50Books2013 and tell us about your recent reads and share reviews. If you would like to join in with us, you can find out all the information here.
