April 2012: Month in Review + Book of the Month Giveaway

April's been another busy month here at A Reader of Fictions. There have been a ton of reviews, as well as assorted other posts. I'm not going to link up all of those, but you guys are smart and can find them if you're so inclined.

Open Giveaways
Make sure to check out my open giveaways; there are currently 3 open, one of which closes at midnight tonight! Also, if you scroll to the bottom, you'll find my new monthly giveaway for one of the books I've loved during the previous month.

Midnight in Peking - Paul French
Helen Keller in Love - Rosie Sultan
Narcopolis - Jeet Thayil

Books Read in April:
I basically read exactly as many as I needed to keep my challenge on schedule, but would have liked to have made some forward progress. I need to get ahead, since I don't know how much reading I'll get done when I'm at BEA.

Also, note all of those books with stars. Those were AWESOME. And you should probably check them out.
