Ready For May Flowers? Review of April and Upcoming Critiques

A Month in Review:
I didn't expect much when I began this blog, perhaps a hundred hits, but no more. It blew me out of the water to see how many people would actually want to read this. I am both grateful and stunned, but with a little help from some groups on GoodReads, and some free books from NetGalley, I suppose anything is possible.

 Total Posts: 14
 Total Critiques: 11
    Classics: 2
    Fantasy: 6
    Historical: 3
    Romance: 9
    Sci-fi: 1
    Urban Fantasy: 1
    Vampires: 2

Total Hits: 230+

Critique Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and then extra whenever I feel like it.

Regular Features (Thus Far): Lots of critiques and Confessions of an Insomniac Book Devourer on Sundays. I'm thinking of adding some top twelve lists in the mix, but we'll see if I like it. I loathe when blogs do more features than critiques, and vow never to do that to this one.

Currently Reading: Chasers of the Wind by Alexey Pehov, Fuel to the Fire by David M. Staniforth, House of Bathory by Linda Lafferty.

Upcoming Critiques:

Here's a look at what I've been polishing.

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, an Author I'm Obsessed With. A novel about a beautiful man and his immortality and immorality.
Genres: Historical, Curses, Horror, Mystery, Vampires

Not all princes are... Charming (Pax Arcana) by Elliot James. An urban fantasy about an outlaw werewolf slash modern day Knight Templar. Charming is his last name.
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Fairy Tale, Romance, Action/Adventure, Werewolves

Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen #1) by Steven Erikson. An epic fantasy fully breathed, filled with magic, gods, and cultures.
Genres: Epic Fantasy, Magic, Action/Adventure

House of Bathory by Linda Lafferty. A modern historical about vampires, particularly Countess Bathory and her reign of terror on the peasants of the past, and what influence it has on Betsy and her patient Daisy, who struggles with her throat closing up until she can't breathe. Not sure what to think of this quite yet.
Genres: Historical, Mystery, Vampires, What Linda Lafferty calls Goth

See you next month!
