April 2019 Wrap Post

Happy Tuesday lovely people, and happy end of April! While last month felt like it flew by, this month felt long enough that it more than made up for it. So, I'm ready to say goodbye to April. Come on May! Be a good month? Please?

I haven't done a wrap post in quite a while, so I thought it was time! It's actually been a pretty amazing reading year so far. I've worked my way through 55 books! Here's the breakdown for April.
5 Stars

This book was amazing. Bleak, yes, but also full of the kind of female characters that make my heart sing. They were tough, they were real, and I loved every single minute of this book. This is a must read.

Wishes and Wellingtons by Julie Berry
4 Stars

Julie Berry stole my heart with this story. It was sweet, full of adventure, and featured a main character that I just loved. Perfect audio book too. Highly recommended.

3 Stars

I didn't love this one, but I do see the draw. It's billed as a ghost story, but it's really more of a mystery with a gothic feel to it. Recommended to fans of slow burn reads.

Will Haunt You by Brian Kirk
3 Stars

This book was odd. That's about all I can say about it, really, without giving too much away. It's gory too, so not recommended to people with weak stomachs.

3 Stars

Another YA book that I didn't totally love, mainly because it felt like everything else I've been reading lately. It did have a nice creep factor to it though, so it was fun.

The Nest by Gregory A. Douglas
3 Stars

A creature feature to the core, this book featuring mutated cockroaches pulls no punches. If you're a fan of small towns being overrun, this is for you.

The Test by Sylvain Neuvel
5 Stars

Holy moly this tiny book packs a punch. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't what ended up being between these pages. A must read.

The Cormorant by Stephen Gregory
3 Stars

A weird story that I didn't dislike, but didn't really love either. I was especially mad at the MC in this one, but hey... I'm an animal lover.

The Red Labyrinth by Meredith Tate
2 Stars

I, very truthfully, barely finished this book. It was cliche, and full of slow moving portions. However if you like dystopian books, you might enjoy this.

4 Stars

So. Much. Fun. This book was such a wild ride! The audio is great, the characters are great, the whole story is great. Entertaining from beginning to end.
10 books in one month, not too shabby! I'm glad that the majority of them were good reads too, because the year started off so well and I want to keep it going!

I can't wait to see what May brings me!
