Books I Read in April | Wrap-Up

Happy May, everyone! While I love rainy April (seriously I could have rainstorms every day and never be sad again), May is my absolute favorite month.

My reading for April was not the best. I had a lot of family stuff going on, and my grandma’s passing really took its toll. I’m kinda glad I took this break from reading during that time, though, because I wouldn’t have enjoyed any book anyway. Aside from this huge chunk of my April, I also went on a trip to visit my best friend in St. Louis which meant not a lot of reading got done. Enjoy some unedited photos from our trip:

Books Read: 4

Pages read: 1,504

Books DNF’d: 2

According to Storygraph, most of my books were either funny or adventurous. I could probably agree that several were adventurous, but the ‘funny’ category was surprising to me. It lists The Storyteller and The Honey-Don’t List under that category. I get the former a little, but neither really jumps out as being incredibly funny.

As for genres, this checks out. Romance and fantasy are always my top genres. Pretty self explanatory.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I liked these two reads, but they weren’t my favorites of the month. I didn’t even review A Song Below Water, mostly because it is YA. I don’t feel like I should be reviewing something if I didn’t absolutely love it when it wasn’t written with me as the intended audience. The Honey-Don’t List was cute but just a solid romance that didn’t do anything extraordinary.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

These two were the stars of April. Anything Dave Grohl does, I can’t not enjoy it. And Daughter of the Moon Goddess was just fantasy perfection. I have nothing more to say on either.

I read (or attempted to read) Twisted Love while I was dealing with my grandma getting sick, so I’d like to give it the benefit of the doubt. It just wasn’t the story I was looking for at the time. I wanted something a little more romance focused, and this was just waaaay too intense.

As for Island Time, I really, really tried hard to get into this. I got like 5% and almost put it down, but then told myself I had to keep going because it was a review copy. Turns out, my first instinct was right. Boring and just kind of weird, in the end.

I’m still in the middle of The Inheritance Games and These Violent Delights, so I’m hoping to get May off to a good start by finishing those soon.

What’s the best book you read in April?

  1. Sometimes you just gotta DNF a book. Don’t feel bad about it, and really…don’t feel like you have to push through just for a review. When I DNF a review copy, I write up a little review on what I had read, and why I gave up on the book. Hope that helps you in the future!
