April Wrap Up | 2017

April 2017

I really didn’t read too much this month which surprised me because for the first half of the month I was on holidays. However, I did have 3 assignments to complete so that may have contributed to my lack of reading. I will say that while I didn’t read too much I am still happy with what I read.

Scythe (Arc of a Scythe #1) by Neal Shusterman

Much Ado About Nothing (No Fear Shakespeare) 
by William Shakespeare
Finished April 14, 2017 | Pages: ­238 | Rating: 4/5

Much Ado About Nothing? More like Everything is horrible and old people are really dramatic.

This was pretty enjoyable overall and really makes me want to rewatch the David Tennant and Catherine Tate version.

Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) by Laini Taylor
Finished April 15, 2017 | Pages: ­432 | Rating: 3/5

Honestly, this started out so strong, I was thinking 4.5 or 5 stars and then bam the romance. No thank you, please leave, this is not what I signed up for.

I should have a review for this up in May.

Waking Gods (Themis Files, #2) by Sylvain Neuvel
Finished April 17, 2017 | Pages: ­320 | Rating: 3/5

The first book started out so strong, I had such high hopes for it’s sequel – so of course I’ve let myself down.

I really didn’t enjoy this, the characters were annoying and I was bored.

Amazing Spider-Man: Worldwide Vol. 1 by Dan Slott
Finished April 21, 2017 | Pages: ­144 | Rating: 4/5

I really enjoyed this, though not as much as I thought I would. That being said I’m sure I’ll pick up volume 2 within the next week.

The Forests of Silence (Deltora Quest #1) by Emily Rodda
Finished April 22, 2017 | Pages: ­131 | Rating: 3/5

My brother recently got really into the anime of this and for some reason I decided to only watch the final with him (bad idea) and I really enjoyed it so I decided to read the books over time. The only problem is I already know everything that happens.

Stormbreaker (Alex Rider, #1) by Anthony Horowitz
Finished April 22, 2017 | Pages: ­256 | Rating: 3/5

Growing up this was one of my favourite series and today I was writing ablog post where I happened to mention this series and I suddenly got all nostalgic about Alex and his spying adventures. I am so glad I re-read this and I can’t wait to continue re-reading this series.

Stormbreaker (Alex Rider, #1)

Point Blanc (Alex Rider #2) by Anthony Horowitz
Finished April 23, 2017 | Pages: ­292 | Rating: 3/5

I think I probably enjoyed this one more when I was younger but I still really loved it. I didn’t intend to read this so close after I read book 1 but oh well, the series re-read is well and truly underway!

Point Blank (Alex Rider, #2)

Skeleton Key (Alex Rider #3) by Anthony Horowitz
Finished April 24, 2017 | Pages: ­352 | Rating: 4/5

These books shouldn’t be this addictive but they are! I’ve read three in three days and now as much as I want to continue I think I need to take a break.

Skeleton Key (Alex Rider, #3)

Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley
Finished April 26, 2017 | Pages: ­384 | Rating: 3/5

Good start, boring middle to end, cool debate.

This was an arc (yes, I know it took me too long to read this) so I have to review this, my review should be up in the next month or two.

Apart from that I’ve seen two movies in cinema and watched a couple of other films.

I watched The Lego Batman Movie and Beauty and The Beast (twice!)

FAVOURITE BLOG POST

My faourite blog post of the month? Ummmm, I don’t know. Honestly, I posted a bunch of stuff this month but nothing really sticks out too much.

I guess my Beauty and The Beast movie review was fun to write, so that would probably have to be my favourite of the month!

OTHER

I got a desk! It’s a mess but I have basically no space in my room (because my shelves are full of books!) so I love it.

April 2017: Big Books

I find that big books are often the ones I enjoy the most, and yet I found it difficult to talk about a great list of books here. I guess I just need to read some more big books!

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)My Lady JaneThe Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer

Paperback: 823 pages

This is my favourite novel in The Lunar Chronicles, while the last book is over 8oo pages and the third book is just over 500 pages. The first two books in this series are pretty meh but as the group really gets to know each other in the third book and the plot starts to really pick up. This is an enjoyable and re-readable sci-fi series.

My Lady Jane (The Lady Janies #1) by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton &  Jodi Meadows

Hardcover: 491 pages

I loved this book. It may be long but I managed to read it over a weekend. It’s hilarious and puts a fantastic twist on history. There’s no insta love and the main character, Jane is a massive book-nerd. She is completely relatable, she always has a book with her and prefers reading over interaction with humans.

Also, I must reiterate how amazing the humour in this book is, every page will have you laughing.

My review.

The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson

Paperback: 647 pages

This was probably my favourite book of 2016. I really enjoyed it and fell in love with the world and Brandon Sanderson’s writing on the first page. This trilog is something new – the magic system is brilliant and the characters are all entirely different, yet they seem to form #squad goals. I love this series and the fact that not too many people have actually read it hurts me.

My review.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter #5) by J.K. Rowling

Hardcover: 766 pages

Whenever someone asks me which book is my favourite I can never give them an answer – all of them is the only answer I could ever supply. But in my ever-changing top 3 HP this is definitely up there. I love this book, it’s long, it’s magical and it’s dark. It’s everything a Potterhead could ever need.

 

April TBR

My TBR for this month is pretty short because although I’m currently on holidays I have a butt-tonne of stuff to get done so I don’t want to be too disappointed with myself if, by the end of the month I haven’t read everything I wanted to. That being said, I think I’m going to be participating in Tome Topple so my TBR for that should be up soon!

This is about a series of murders mimicking the Jack the Ripper killings and a girl named Rory. Basically this Rory chick spots the man believed to be the killed, but she’s the only one who can see him, right, and of course now she’s being targeted by this guy. And guys this kind of sounds amazing?

The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1)

I’ve been getting into comics a lot more recently and since I really haven’t read any recent Spider-Man comics I figured why the hell not. I’m on holidays now so I cannot wait to take my time with this comic and hopefully even read some more of the series.

Amazing Spider-Man: Worldwide, Vol. 1

Last month I listened to the first book in this series and really enjoyed it, somehow I managed to get an e-arc so I’ll be reading that at the start of the month. My goal is to get a review out the week this comes out but we’ll see.

Waking Gods (Themis Files, #2)
