April 2016 Reads

April was not the best reading month for me. In fact, it was my slowest one all year. I only read one full-length novel. This is all due to finals, job hunting, and finishing up a ton of projects culminating in the end of my academic career as a publishing grad student. I read a ton of non-fiction for school and work, but it doesn’t feel quite the same as getting a significant amount of pleasure-reading in. All in all, I read 25 books, down 5 books from the 30 I read in March
