Wrap Up | April 2020

Hello, bookish friends! πŸ’

You mean to tell me another month has come and gone? It feels like I was just writing my March wrap up and now we’re already in May! Despite how weird of a time it’s been I think we can all agree that the last month absolutely flew by. During the month of April I was able to read seven books. Not my best or my worst so I’ll definitely take it. Plus, I’m pretty sure I FINALLY beat my reading slump that’s been lingering since February so cheers to that!

Let’s dive in to all the books I read during April!

TL;DR

Don’t feel like reading a review?
Here’s my thoughts on each book in one sentence!
  1. The Lucky OnesΒ – Trauma, grief, and coping with a side of hope.
  2. My Dark VanessaΒ – An extremely dark, uncomfortable, but important read.
  3. Clockwork PrinceΒ – I have nothing but love and a lot of stress for my babies.
  4. A Good Girl’s Guide to MurderΒ – A plot twist I never saw coming.
  5. A Court of Thorns and RosesΒ – I….didn’t hate Tamlin?
  6. Imagine MeΒ – Literal garbage.
  7. A Whole New MeΒ – Coming of age love story with some steamy af scenes.

Favorite Read of the Month

Rereading this went better than I expected since I was able to pick up on all of the little details that come to life in book two. Originally I was only planning on rereading the first book but after finishing this I will absolutely be picking up the second book again!

Least Favorite Read of the Month

This was…terrible. Like, I can’t believe this is an actual book let alone the conclusion to a six book series. The plot was a mess, the characters felt off, and I was left with so many questions – possibly even more questions than I started with. I’m definitely standing with the majority of people who say this should have stayed a trilogy.

Until next time,

  1. April seriously did go by SO damn fast. I’m glad you were able to read so much and yay for kicking your slump! I’m sorry to hear the last Shatter Me book was so bad, though. 😦 I feel like I’ve seen almost NO good reviews for it.
