11 Books total...8 of which were Audiobooks and 3 that are Netgalley eARC's (right now my netgalley average is 88%...woohoo).

Total # of Pages:  4,066 

...something weird I wanted to share...I read three different books this month with a page count of 336 and two of 352 pages.  I didn't read any that were 384...but I've read a total of 4 books, so far this year with that # of pages.  It's interesting how often certain page counts come up in my reading.

Best Cover for April goes too...I love Ever the Hunted, Four Dead Queens, and Drowning Instinct, but the artwork on this one has to be recognized:
