HOLY CRAP I read a lot this past month!! I’m so proud of myself for getting through all of these books. I have finally beat my nasty reading slump!
1) Not If I Save You First by: Ally Condie 2/5 Stars
I have a lot to say about this book…. I think I’m just gonna leave my thoughts to my review which will be posted within the next few days or so.
2) Days of Blood and Starlight by: Laini Taylor 3/5 Stars
I was able to listen to this audiobook while I was commuting to and from work. I really was nervous going into this book because I didn’t want it to follow the second book slump. Surprisingly it didn’t, but it still wasn’t as good as the first book, which is why I’m rating it as such. The more I read of this series the more I love how different Laini’s writing style is.
3) Sky In the Deep by: Adrienne Young 3.5/5 Stars
This was a book that I got way back at Yallfest, but I wanted to wait to read it closer to the release date. I had really high hopes for this book, but it kinda fell short. I will write a review for this book, which I will tag here later, because I have a lot of thoughts on this book.
4) Dreams of Gods and Monsters by : Laini Taylor 4/5 Stars
I finally finished this series! I always felt so intimidated by how big these books were, but they didn’t seem so bad in audiobook form. I really enjoyed this series from beginning to end. I absolutely love Laini’s writing and cannot wait to read more of her books in the future.
5) Bookish Boyfriends by: Tiffany Schmidt 4.5/5 Stars
This book is everything that my inner book nerd wanted! If I had this book when I was 15 I would have been ecstatic. You can read my full review here.
6) The Falconer by: Elizabeth May 5/5 Stars
This has to be one of my favorite books hands down. I saw that it was in my library’s audiobook list so I just had to borrow it to read it again. If you would like to read my full review on this book you can find it here.
7) 99 Days by: Katie Cotugno 2/5 Stars
This is another book that I was a little disappointed in. There was some content in this book that really put me on edge and made me really dislike this book. I really was bummed because I really wanted to like this book. You can read my full review here
8) Everything, Everything by: Nicola Yoon 4/5 Stars
I’ve been really wanting to see the movie that was based on this book, but I had to read the book first. This book was a really quick and fun read. It reminded me a tad of The Fault In Our Stars. And that ending really got me.
9) Ash Princess by: Laura Sebastian 5/5 Stars
I LOVED this book!! I was really looking forward to reading this book ever since I was able to get an ARC of this book. I went into this book a little nervous because I desperately wanted to like this book. It was so good! Keep an eye out for my review which will be posted soon.
I still can’t believe I got to this many books last month. While some of them I didn’t care for, there were still a few that I really loved.
What are some of the books that y’all read in April?
