Hello, book lovers! 💕
How are we already almost 5 months into this year already? It’s seriously going by so fast. It feels like the days are blurring together. And I feel like I just posted my April TBR not too long ago.
For the most part, I’d say that April wasn’t that bad of a reading month. I was able to get through five books, even though one of them I started last month and only read half this month. But I’m not complaining.
So without any further ado, let’s get onto the books that I read in April!
The book that I was halfway through before April started was The Dating Plan by Sarah Desai. It was an adult romance with fake dating, so of course I had to pick it up. And I ended up really enjoying it even though it took me almost a month to get through. But that wasn’t anything to do with the quality of the book. I just picked it up in small bursts and read it slowly to be with the characters longer.
But I have a review of it posted on my blog if you’re interested in knowing more of my thoughts, but just know that I really loved it, and I would definitely recommend it if you enjoy Sarah Morgenthaler or Jen DeLuca.
The next two books I read were actually rereads. I listened the audiobooks for book 3 and 4 in the Harry Potter series. I wasn’t actually planning on getting to both of these this month. Actually, I wasn’t even planning on reading either one of them.
But I randomly decided one day to pick up the audiobook while I was drawing instead of listening to music. And I say this every time that I mention this series, but being back in this work is always so magical.
The next book I picked up also wasn’t on my list of books that I wanted to get to this month. But it was another audiobook, so I’m really not surprised. And that book was Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Honestly, I don’t think I would have been able to get through it if I hadn’t listened to it on audiobook. Not to say it wasn’t a good book. It was definitely interesting. But I struggle with staying focused when reading classics, and I know this one wouldn’t have been any exception. And really, it’s how I’m able to get through classics and understand them since they can be kind of dry and outdated.
But I enjoyed this one, especially with how while it was written in the 30s, there were some things that happened and that were mentioned that are happening today, for the most part. It’s kind of scary to think about.
The last book that I read this month was Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli. This book just came out last week, and I knew I had to pick it up. What I didn’t expect was to finish it in a couple days because I loved it so much. Then again, that seems to happen a lot with Becky Albertalli’s books.
I think this one was up there with her first book, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda for me. I felt an immediate attachment to the characters and I absolutely loved the pop culture references that were thrown in there and real-life events that made these characters feel more like actual people than fictional characters.
But I’m planning on doing a full review of this book next week, so definitely keep an eye out for that if you’re interested in knowing more of my thoughts.
So there you have it. Those are the books that I read in the month of April. Overall, I’d say it was a pretty good reading month considering I only gave one book a 3-star rating. All the other ones were either 4 or 5-stars.
What did you read this month? Have you read any of the books that I mentioned? I’d love to chat about them in the comments below!
