April Wrap Up
This month with regards to reading got off a little slow. From the 10th to the 17th I participated in a Read-a-thon and then my reading picked up after that. This month I have finished 15 books and 3 audiobooks.
Below is my wrap up list in order of completion, books then audiobooks:
The Masked Truth – Kelley Armstrong
This is a psychological thriller. It is actually a really good book. The narrative is centred in mainly one location so there is a lot of focus on the characters.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs
This is the book I chose for my Reading Challenge for April. I have a full review posted for this novel.
Necking – Chris Salvatore
I wanted a change and definitely got it in this light hearted vampire comedy/ romance.
Allegiant – Veronica Roth
With the movie coming out this month I had to re-read this novel before I watched the film.
A Darker Shade of Magic – V.E. Schwab
This author has been on my TBR pile for a while now. I’ve finally managed to pick this book up and was not disappointed.
Second Chance Summer – Morgan Matson
I read this as the Booksplosion Book of the Month for April. I am happy I have read this and will absolutely be picking up more books from this author.
Across the Universe – Beth Revis
This is my TBR Jar pick for April. It is a story about a girl brought out of cryogenics hundreds of years early on a spaceship in the middle of space. I enjoyed it, didn’t love it but will finish this series.
This Is Where It Ends – Marieke Nijkamp
A shocking novel from multiple points-of-view about a school shooting.
The Lightning Thief – Rick Riordan
The other book club I participate in is the Purustopia Book. This was the April book. Surprisingly I have never read this series even though I love Greek Mythology. I have since purchased the next two books in this series with every intention of reading them soon.
The Shadow Queen – C.J. Redwine
Wow. Read my review. A wonderful fairytale retelling.
Firstlife – Gena Showalter
Gena is an excellent author and this new book to a brand new series is no exception. I need more.
This Is Where The World Ends – Amy Zhang
This is the April book from the YA Chronicles Subscription Box. It is the combination of a tragic love story and a psychological thriller. The prose and points-of-view are masterfully done.
Pretty Baby – Mary Kubica
My local bookstore -QBD- had this as their book of the month. I decided to give it a go. I finished it in under 24 hours. A psychological thriller which delves into the human condition.
Undead and Unappreciated – Mary Janice Davidson
I’m continuing this series and loving this author all the more.
X-Treme Dating – Cathy McDavid
A quick funny romantic read.
And now for the audiobooks:
Slave to Sensation – Nalini Singh
This series is a re-read or listen of this series. I love this series and listening gave it a whole new perspective.
Vision of Heat – Nalini Singh
Continuing this wonderful series.
Carassed by Ice – Nalini Singh
Listening to this series is just all the more excellent. 😍
