Can you believe that April is already over? As most of you know, the #CopyPasteCris list has grown to 95 books, 43 authors, 3 articles, 3 websites, & 2 recipes. Nora Roberts has started the proceedings to sue Cristiane Serruya! If you didn’t see it on Twitter, the authors who were plagiarized by Cristiane Serruya (AKA #CopyPasteCris) sent Claire Ryans a Sword!!! It is one of the coolest things ever! She is now the lady protector of Romancelandia! Nora Roberts was also incredibly sweet in sending me a beautiful care package in thanks for keeping the #CopyPasteCrisList. I seriously cried tears of joy and excitement. It’s probably one of the best moments of my life so far.
If you’re reading this blog post, I just want to say how much I appreciate you. I hope that you all enjoy my recommendations and that these posts will help you find your next favorite book.
As most readers know, our reading habits vary from month to month. I’m doing these monthly wrap-ups because the Ravenclaw in me LOVES all the statistics! I’m currently using the reading log by Book Riot to find all of my stats so if this looks like fun, I highly recommend taking a look at their reading log!

Favorite book of the Month: Morrigan’s Cross by Nora Roberts. I have been struggling to write my review of this book simply because it was so beautiful. The writing was amazing, the characters were phenomenal, and my words can’t seem to do justice for how amazing it was.

Great stats! Very Ravenclaw of you indeed (though I also love everything organisation/lists/numbers too!)
So cool of Nora to do that – what a queen! I’m so sorry to hear about the plagiarism. It’s honestly the first time, although I always seem to pick up the latest Twitter dramas, I don’t think I’ve seen this one around or it just went under my radar *shrugs*
Here’s to hoping people think twice about copying others and taking credit for someone else’s work! And you’ve made a great contribution to see to that:)
It was really a big thing in February when Courtney Milan first exposed it. It lost some of the momentum since then. It really is shocking and awful how many authors were plagiarized. Yes, Nora is simply amazing! I was shocked at how generous she was. I am just happy I could help out!
