50 TBR Challenge: April

I know...this is sad list. I only managed to read 3 books in April. But since January I have read total of 15 books for the 50 Challenge Books. OMG that is the lowest total books read. I used to read faster and more then this (I use to read like 5 to 7 books each months). The first few years when we started on the 50 Challenge Book, was so much better then the last 2 or 3 years when I begin to have my reading slump. What wrong with me?

What even worse, last night my niece Trish drop a drink all over my TBR piles. Lot of the books was wet but I managed to save them from ruined. Only a few books was ruined, thanks goodness. I guess this is a slap, telling me to read my TBR pile faster and get out of my reading slump hehehe. But I won't read anything else until I get my copy of Anne Starts' Fire and Ice arrives :)

P.S. My good friend Darla is the one who came up with this 50 Challenge Book ideas to the group that we both members of. Please click her name (above) to see her book review :)
