April Wrap Up

I know this is very late, but I am sticking with the idea that it is better late than never! I started off April on a really good note. I took part in my first readathon and I read seven books right at the beginning of the month and then nothing else.

I had a bit of a rough end to the month, so had to step away from social media and it messed up my posting schedule a bit. I will try to get back into it for May but I cannot promise it at this point. I’m also in a bit of a reading slump, which is not what I want. I’m hoping if I can get my blog back up and running, it will inspire me to start reading again.

If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman

2020-03-31 14.28.32I started off the month rereading If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. I had been wanting to reread this duology for a long time. I first read it in around 2015 and remembered really enjoying it and I was interested to know if I would feel the same if I read it today. Which I did. I really enjoyed it the second time around, I was in the mood for an emotional read and these books are definitely emotional. They were a quick read that really gave me what I needed in the moment.

 

I then read three books for the Easter Readathon, which I will link here. I talked in detail what I thought about Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman; Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore.

 

Down Among the Sticks and Bones and Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire

2020-04-08 15.16.10I have spoken multiple times at how disappointed I was with Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. I did really want to give the other books in the series a go. I’m so glad I did because I absolutely loved Down Among the Sticks and Bones. I think I connected more with Jack and Jill as characters rather than Nancy. I also liked that it took place in their world rather than in the academy. I did enjoy Beneath the Sugar Sky too! More than the first one. However, I didn’t enjoy it as much as Down Among the Sticks and Bones. I think it was because it was back in the academy.

 

What did you read in April and what are you planning on reading in May?
