Hello! I’m bringing you a wrap up post at a slightly more reasonable time than before! (Remember when I did an August Wrap Up in November? 😂)
April wasn’t the best reading month for me because I entered a reading slump immediately following Trope-ical Readathon, but I managed to read 7 books. Let’s see what they were!
The Order of the Key by Justine Manzano
I got this from the author as an ARC last year and I took way too long to review it. In the end, I enjoyed it very much! I think it’s a book that works better if you spread out your reading rather than trying to read it all in one go. You can read my full review here.
Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli
This book was such a joy! I really liked the way Becky Albertalli wrote this and the emphasis it puts on having healthy relationships with the people around you. I read this for a blog tour with The Write Reads, so you can read my full review here.
Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie
I read this for my Agatha Christie readalong with some of the TWR Crew. It is a collection of 11-13 short stories depending on which edition you have and my overall feeling was that the stories were too short for me to really care about any of them. I have a post in my drafts for my review of this book so hopefully I can get it posted soon!
Janey Trelawney’s Year of Surprising Triumphs by Georgia Hill
This was a cute contemporary that I read for a blog tour with Rachel’s Random Resources. It features some really supportive friendships and important themes about working together toward a common goal. Although I found the villain to be a bit over the top, it was still an enjoyable read. You can read my full review here.
Among the Beasts and Briars by Ashley Poston
I read this book for a book club read with some of the TWR Crew. It started off incredibly strong and I was convinced it was going to be a 5 star read, but the ending seemed rushed and left too many unanswered questions. It was marketed as a standalone but the ending makes it seem like it’s actually going to be part of a series so I have no idea what’s happening. Hopefully I can get a review posted for this if I remember!
Sun of a Beach by Mia Sosa
I read The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa and enjoyed it, so when I saw that she had an Audible Original available, I jumped at the chance to listen to it. It’s a very short listen about a cute vacation romance. It’s a bit rushed due to the length but enjoyable nonetheless.
In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren
I listened to this book on Audible as well and enjoyed it a lot too. The story is about a time loop and manages to be both predictable and heartwarming at the same time. The main romance seems a bit too perfect, but I think that’s one of the things I loved about it. You can read my full review here.
And that’s it! How many books did you manage to read in April?
