I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I read // April Wrap Up

Howdy and hello. Happy Monday, it’s an especially happy Monday because it’s a bank holiday and who doesn’t love a bank holiday??

Today I’m going to be talking about the books I read in April. Overall I read 6 books and got halfway a seventh. I was not expecting to read that much so I’m very happy with that.


Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare – God how is it that I only read Chain of Iron this month? Feels like ages ago.

This is of course, the much anticipated sequel to Chain of Gold, a book I read last year and loved with my whole heart. I was really excited about this book and it was good, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think it lived up to my own expectations.

The eerie, almost horror like vibes of the first book is something I loved and that sadly wasn’t replicated. Plot-wise, I liked the focus on Lucie and Jesse and the James and Cordelia but the cliff-hanger with those two was not for me.


Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – I watched this because of the show. What more can I say?

I’m really glad that I picked this book up this month. It was my third time reading Six of Crows but I loved it just as much. I actually went through and picked out my favourite quotes and moments.

I’ve also added this book to the stack of YA books I want my mum to read. I loved this book, I loved the show and if I have time I’m going to re-read Crooked Kingdom in May just to keep the love going.

April Wrap Up

Helloooo 🙂

I don’t know how but it’s that time again where I talk all about the books I read this month. I had a pretty lofty TBR for April and I read approximately two of those books.

My reading was pretty all over the place this month and in terms of quantity but sadly it was pretty “meh” in terms of quality. Because of how random the books are I’ve split them into groups to try and bring some order to this wrap up.

The “meh” books.

The first book I read this month was Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett and it was disappointing. I did a whole review for it but in short: I love Jenn Bennett but I didn’t love this book. It liked the representation: a hard of hearing boy with Japanese heritage and a girl with narcolepsy, but I didn’t care much about the romance. There wasn’t much chemistry between the characters, Birdie and Daniel, at least compared to other Bennett books, and they felt kind of cringey at times.

I was in the mood for some cheesy “oh my god I have superpowers” and “oh my god I’m the most powerful witch to ever exist” read and so I read The Lost Witch by Chandelle LaVaun. . I was hoping for a guilty pleasure read but I basically skim read this. It just wasn’t what I wanted and I barely remember anything that happened (besides lots of characters with very modern American names). Continue reading “April Wrap Up”
