April Wrap-Up & May Reading Challenge!

It’s May and I’m freaking out a little. We’re almost halfway through the year. That’s crazy to me. What’s even crazier is that I could have sworn I read loads of books in April… but I only read 2! When I think back to last month all I can picture is me with a book, reading. It must have all been a dream haha.

I also want to say a massive thank you to everyone because I recently hit 600 followers on my blog. That’s a crazy amount of people and I’m so thankful to each and every one of you!

Here are the 2 books I read in April…

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

A Curse So Dark and Lonely

The month of April started off great because I picked up this book. I instantly fell straight into the story and couldn’t put it down. I had heard really great things about it and I knew it was inspired by Beauty and the Beast so I was excited to check it out. I loved the world that was created and thought Harper as the protagonist was great! She was fierce, determined and always looking out for other people which I really enjoyed. I’m still a little unsure about Rhen but that’s only because I feel like I didn’t really get to know him in this book – it felt like Kemmerer was only scratching the surface with him.

This is the first book in a series I believe so it will be interesting to see what direction the next book is going in.

4.5 STARS


Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Daisy Jones

I don’t know where to start with this book. And I don’t know what to say other than I loved it a lot and I wished it could have gone on longer. All of the characters felt so real and the story felt real. Everything was amazing. I have no words for it. I’m going to stop typing. Please read it if you haven’t already.

5 STARS

READING CHALLENGE

Now, moving on to my reading challenge which actually went to plan for once! My challenge was to read a new to me author. I managed to do that with both of the books that I read! To be fair, I had set myself quite an easy challenge so if I hadn’t completed this one on time, then I would have been very mad at myself haha.

What will be challenge for May be then? Well… I think it’s about time that I focus on the other reading challenges that I signed up for at the beginning of the year; YARC, and Beat the Backlist. Ideally, I would love to read one book towards each of these so here’s hoping that I manage it!


What books did you read in April?
Do you set yourself reading challenges?
