April Wrap Up and May TBR

I read a total of 8 books in April, which is surprising because it felt like a busy month.

  1. A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Maas: At first, I found this book very boring and I didn’t think I would like it, but since I was sent it on Kindle to borrow, I decided to pull through to the end. I am happy that I did because the story really picked up. I will not be finishing the series, however. Maas has a lot of problematic scenes in the third book which are offensive and hurtful. 3/5 stars
  2. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken: I did not enjoy this book at all. I also borrowed it from someone on Kindle, so I finished it. It was very slow paced, and not a lot of action happened. 3/5 stars
  3. Never, Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher: THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING. It’s a super short read, at only a little over 100 pages. There is a huge cliffhanger at the end, and I can’t wait to read parts 2 and 3. This is my 3rd Colleen Hoover book, and I plan on reading a lot more by her because I’ve loved them all. 5/5 stars
  4. Only A Kiss by Ines Bautista-Yao: This book is a cute, quick read. The writing wasn’t great, but I enjoyed the story. I only read it because I got it free on Amazon! 3/5 stars
  5. I Am More Than A Daydream by Jennae Cecelia: This is Jennae’s 3rd poetry collection, and by far my favorite! I read it in one sitting, and related to a lot of the poetry. 5/5 stars
  6. Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven: I loved this book. I read it pretty quickly, and it was really fast paced, which I liked. I loved the main characters, and the story was really empowering. 4/5 stars
  7. The Wingsnatchers by Sarah Jean Horwitz: I received an ARC of this book, and it just came out on April 25th, so I wanted to finish it before release day. It was a cute story, but definitely geared towards middle school kids. 3/5 stars
  8. Night By Elie Wiesel: This book is a true account of a Jewish man during the Holocaust. It was devastating and made me tear up, but I am glad I read it. It really opens your eyes to the horrors people faced. 5/5 stars

Now for my TBR! I don’t have a lot of books on my list, because I never stick to my TBR anyways.


  1. Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon: The movie comes out mid-May, so I definitely want to finish this book before then.
  2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: I started this book the last week of April, but I have yet to finish it, so it is my goal to do so.
  3. Silence by Natasha Preston: I also started this a few days ago, and I am almost done. I really, really want to finish it because I accidentally read a spoiler, and now I can’t stop thinking about it!

  1. I actually DNF’d A Court of Thorns and Roses. I’m glad there’s at least one more person in the world who didn’t really enjoy it! Lol.

    I’m also going to try to read Everything Everything. I just need to get it first! :D

  2. I read Holding Up The Universe a while ago when it first came out and I loved it! I did my own little review on it too – Everything Everything is also a really nice book! I would recommend it, I’m really looking forward to the film! X

  3. I really need to read Holding up the universe! You NEED to read a court of mist and fury and Everything Everything, trust me, you won’t regret it!

    1. I won’t be reading the rest of the ACOTAR series because it’s really problematic but I’ve already started Everything Everything!

  4. I saw so many positive things about ACOTAR and the covers just won me over, but when I actually read it, I was so disappointed. I was a little over 125 pages in before I gave up. I’ve never not finished a book before, but it was just dragging. The plot wasn’t moving fast enough for me, I wasn’t able to connect with the characters, and honestly, I was confused most of the time. It’s a little relieving to know that I’m not the only one who had trouble with this book.

    1. Yes, I agree with all of this! And if I wasn’t lent this book, I probably wouldn’t have finished it either!
