Apr ’21 Wrap Up

I can’t believe we’re a third of the way through the year. Time is flying by so quickly and this month was no exception. Looking back at what I read, I was not only shocked at how much I read, but the fact that I was forgetting the books I read this month. Time is moving so slow and so fast at the same time, I can’t keep up. Anyways, here’s what I read for April and if you want to see what I plan to read in May, check out my TBR here!

I also linked all of the reviews that are posted for these books, so if you want to read my thoughts, check out the reviews below!

The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He

Genre: YA Dystopian Thriller

Rating: 5 // 5 stars

Goodreads


I can’t believe I read 11 books last month! It felt like I had read nothing, but looking back, I actually got through a lot more. I basically finished my TBR last month which was surprising and awesome at the same time. I need to keep up this momentum into May!

What was your favorite book you read in April? It’s so hard to pick, but I think it would have to be a three way tie between Our Last Echoes, What’s Not to Love, and The Ones We’re Meant to Find. And These Feathered Flames is a very close second!

Review: A Dark and Hollow Star

I managed to get an ARC of this book right before release on NetGalley, but it wasn’t until I purchased a physical copy at B&N that I got motivated to read it. See, I knew I was going to love this book (and obviously I was right) so it made sense to just buy a copy and I’m so glad I did. I loved this book so much and I can’t wait for the sequel!

Apr ’21 TBR

Every time I think I’m going to finish my TBR and have time to read extra books, it doesn’t happen. In March, I was halfway through the month and was doing so well, then our offer was accepted on a house and I had zero time and motivation to read.

So for April, even though there are so many books I want to put down on my TBR, I’m sticking with nine. Three are for blog tours, five are all NetGalley books I need to read and review, and one is a TBR book my friends are dying for me to read. If I have extra time available, I am absolutely reading other books as well, but for now I’m going to be realistic. Most likely I’ll be busy with packing and moving and unpacking, so it’s better to keep my expectations low.
