April 2021 in Review

Updated: Jan 14, 2022

This was the third and final month in my UNO reading challenge, and it was the best reading month of all. Like last month, I ended up not only reading a lot of ebooks, but also manga and short stories as well.

Here are all the statistics for the month!


I read a total of 19 ebooks, 5 novellas, 11 audiobooks, 4 graphic novel issues, 28 volumes of manga, 2 webcomics and 23 short stories for a total of 92 books and roughly 15,327 pages.

I ended up DNFing 3 books this month, so here are all the books I DNFed this month and why:

  • Tomie by Junji Ito - was boring

  • The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones - didn't like the subject matter

  • Tale of the Yellow Dragon by Brothers Without a Tomorrow - nothing special

Here are all the books I read this month. If you want to check out my reviews of them, click on the pink links!
