100 Book Reading Challenge: April

So? How's it going? Are you still reading as much as the past few months? More? Less? I'm up to 19 books so far, and am pretty happy with that progress. Especially considering all I've had going on this year. :)

For those of you reading, I've got some great ARCs.

Entwined by Heather Dixon
Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it.
The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation.
Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest.
But there is a cost.
The Keeper likes to keep things.
Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.

Strings Attached by Judy Blundell
When Kit Corrigan arrives in New York City, she doesn't have much. She's fled from her family in Providence, Rhode Island, and she's broken off her tempestuous relationship with a boy named Billy, who's enlisted in the army.
The city doesn't exactly welcome her with open arms. She gets a bit part as a chorus girl in a Broadway show, but she knows that's not going to last very long. She needs help--and then it comes, from an unexpected source.
Nate Benedict is Billy's father. He's also a lawyer involved in the mob. He makes Kit a deal--he'll give her an apartment and introduce her to a new crowd. All she has to do is keep him informed about Billy . . . and maybe do him a favor every now and then.

To enter, fill in the form below. One URL per entry, but you may enter as many times as you like. You must directly link to your review (otherwise your entry is void), or include a paragraph containing your thoughts on a particular book. I just need some proof that you're actually reading. :)
FYI--to get to a direct link to your Goodreads reviews, click on the title of the book, and then click on the "My Review" heading just above where you type in your review.

Good luck!!

Great giveaway! I'm at 27 books so far. The most I've ever read. Then again, I haven't done much writing this year!

Excellent!! I haven't been able to do much of either this year, but things are getting back to normal so I'm hoping to buckle down soon.

Reading productivity is down :( - however, writing productivity is up. Currently struggling to find a balance between the two, I tend to teeter-totter.
