Wrap up for #AwesomeApril - I didn't achieve my goal of 2500 pages, but I ended up at 2214 which is pretty solid. I finished five books, almost finished the tagged book, stayed caught up on my two chapter-a-day reads, and am back on top of my page goal for April. As always, thanks for hosting @Andrew65 - already looking forward to May's readathon!!!

#WeeklyForecast - Finished The Dream Thieves last night & started the tagged. I'm really enjoying this series & am excited to move right into the spin-off, Call Down the Hawk. The post-it titles are on Kindle & are a Mansfield Park variation. I'm at least giving the first book a try to see if they are any good. HP should wrap up this week & I'm also halfway through Dawn Treader - so fun to reread both these series!! From there it's a random TBR⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) selection, my next Wodehouse book (I'm rereading them all in published order, verrrryyy slowly), the book about color that someone here in Litsy reviewed the other day & made me want to check it out, & the next Phoebe & Her Unicorn book, just published. I probably won't get to Zeppelin this week, but soon! @Cinfhen 2y
Cinfhen I‘m very impressed 💛🙌🏻You‘re TBR seems super organized 😁 2y
TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen - The amount of effort I put into organizing & working my way through my TBR & then tracking what I read once I read it is honestly embarrassing 😂 If only I could find a way to get paid to do this!! 😆 2y
Cinfhen That‘s EXACTLY what my hubby says!!!! If only you‘d get paid to read 😂 2y

This book was slow, but had its moments. I loved the character development and the plot is still one of the most unpredictable and unique I‘ve ever read. It‘s taken me a really long time to read each of these books. Something about the writing style makes them really hard for me to sink my teeth into.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 1/2

Johanna414 I had a much easier time with the audiobooks for this series. The narrator was great! 2y

1. If I think I will reread it, I keep it. I also keep almost all nonfiction for reference purposes. Books I don't see myself reading again I send on their way.

2. I've been meaning to read The Raven Boys series forever. I've gotten the first two books & still need the tagged & book 4. Not sure why this is a series I'm buying before reading... not my usual style!!

*Face Palm* I was supposed to post this first before my previous post! I finished this first! My #doublespin was amazing! This story totally has me enraptured. I think about it long after I‘m done reading it. I need to start the next one asap, but I‘m sad it‘s almost over. #bookspinbingo

TheAromaofBooks Despite really enjoying several of Stiefvater's other books (and she's one of the few authors that I also enjoy on social media - she's such a fantastic person overall), I've never read this, her most famous series!! I own the first two books (and the OwlCrate edition of Call Down the Hawk because I couldn't resist!), so I'll get to them someday!! 2y
Ash.on.the.line @TheAromaofBooks I didn‘t get interested in her books or herself until recently. I just listened to others telling me I need to read this! I got a copy of Call Down the Hawk from @sharread 😊 which pushed me to start this series! 2y
sharread I'm glad you like them. I've read most of her books, one of her first about fairies, but so far The Scorpio Rsces is my favorite equal to Call Down the Hawk. 👍💓 2y
Ash.on.the.line @sharread I‘ll have to look into The Scorpio Races and plan on reading Call Down the Hawk after I finish The Raven Cycle😁 2y

Then I made Nigella‘s cranberry cake, and for once it almost looks the way it‘s supposed to! I used Ocean Spray cranberries this time and they were a lot smaller than whatever kind my grocery store usually sells. I guess they were also denser and less inclined to float up into the batter.

Between this bit of #audiobaking and some work on my latest dog sweater, I finished BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE. Now begins the wait for THE RAVEN KING.

Today‘s #audiocooking efforts involved the carrot salad from ANTONI IN THE KITCHEN. It‘s good, but probably not good enough to justify the sheer amount of time I spent ribbonizing the itty bitty rainbow carrots that were all I could source.

On the book front, I‘m still loving this immediate Raven Cycle reread, and I‘m still sure I won‘t repeat the experiment. I‘m not built for this type of reading.

IndoorDame It‘s certainly beautiful! 3y
xicanti @IndoorDame the red carrots look especially nice prepared this way. 3y
Megabooks It looks yummy, but also difficult!! #respect 3y
xicanti @Megabooks I think it would‘ve been a lot easier with proper carrots. These little ones were really hard to hold while I peeled bits off. 3y

My favourite thing about this series is that each of the characters is immediately recognizable as an archetype at best and a stereotype at worst, but Stiefvater refuses to let those impressions stand. She deconstructs our expectations and delivers a cast of deep, varied, REAL people. This volume really hammers that home as the central characters internalize more truths about each other.

That sounds bland. I promise it‘s exciting as all get-out.

xicanti Please note Tiny Blue, also. She took a tumble that broke off her stubby hairdo, but her dress that makes her look like a lampshade mostly survived and I‘m AWFULLY proud of it. 3y

#weeklyforecast time! I‘ve got pretty modest goals for next week. If all goes well, I‘ll:

• finish rereading BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE
• read at least 3 chapters of OVER THE TOP
• finish WORDS OF RADIANCE
• finish HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX on audio
• squeeze in CLAY‘S ARK

WoR‘s the kicker here. I‘ll definitely finish it, but I‘ve got 900 pages left so I dunno whether I‘ll have time to also read the Butler as planned. Poop.

I found enough energy to bike 15 miles while I read. Since my odometer‘s pretty boring, here‘s a photo of a BUTTERNUT MURDER SQUASH my mum made me the other night.

I dunno why, but in my head the Murder Squash Song is about people in plague doctor masks, possibly with fake wings attached to their backs.

charl08 Butternut murder squash? 3y
xicanti @charl08 it‘s one of those associations that really only makes sense if you‘ve read the book. This dish isn‘t actually called Butternut Murder Squash; my mind just went there because the characters latch onto something called the Murder Squash Song and one character‘s father is nicknamed Butternut. 3y
charl08 Oh, sorry! I thought it was a recipe 🤦‍♀️😂 3y

I‘m gonna die from this slow burn, hidden, and forbidden love goin on! Maggie writes the most beautiful kissing scene WITH NO KISSING. Like seriously it‘s so beautiful and carefully written. The story just gets better as it progresses, more magic, more puzzles more everything. I am just so immersed in this world!

I never sleep well when my husband is out of town, and the weather has been so nice the kids have been playing outside for hours, so I‘ve had a LOT of reading time.

Friday I read TRB. Saturday I read TDT. Today I read BL,LB. (I‘m not going to tell you how many treats I consumed each day though. 😲😂)

I‘m loving revisiting the world of #TheRavenCycle. It‘s making me even more excited for CALL DOWN THE HAWK to come out!! #howjessreadsin2019

I don‘t know if it‘s because I‘m getting used to the author‘s writing style or because I‘m finally interested & invested in the characters‘ lives & choices. Either way, I‘m excited for book 4 to see how it all concludes!

The character development is wonderfully insane in this book. I particularly enjoyed the introduction of casually psycho Piper and fussy Malory. These books are so well crafted and so much fun. Ronan is by far my favorite. I am excited to read the next one.
