Another month has passed and I’m once again writing another Wrap-Up! Is it just me or are those months actually that short? *lol* I could have sworn I just wrote my March Wrap-Up and here I am going for April! XD Maybe I’m just getting old? No, nope, let’s not go down that road. Haha!
I’m as young as I feel which means I’m currently at the stage of being a pimply 17en year old teenager! *lol* (I might have a Peter Pan syndrome but pssst, don’t tell anyone! ;-P) Oh well, at least the pimply part is true. >_< Anyway, moving on!
To be honest, April was a rather slow reading month for me. I only managed to read 5 books and one manga but this is mostly due to the fact that my little one was ill again and that work was keeping me more than just busy. I swear sometimes it feels like I have 10 different jobs and that I fail at each and every single one of them. *hums the refrain of Meredith Brooks “I’m a bitch, I’m a lover”*
Despite everything life throws at me I’m still blogging, reading, working, taking care of my kid, doing the household and singing though. *lol* Oh, and I’m writing Wrap-Ups! Almost forgot about that one! ;-P
So enough of me and let’s move to my monthly statistic instead:
Books read: 6
Pages read: 2.439 (Is it just me or does the number of pages go down with every Wrap-Up post I write? >_<)
Average rating: 4,33
Books that were on my reading list: 4 (3 from 2018 and 1 from 2019)
The Sweetest Oblivion:
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC form the author and I’m so glad Danielle Lori thought of me before she released her book! Unfortunately it took me ages to get to it because my ARCs got out of control. *lol* I might have been late to read this mafia story but I definitely enjoyed it! So if you like your male MCs hot, possessive, dominant and unapologetic Nico Russo might just be the right man for you! ;-P If you want to read my full review you can do it here!
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo:
I have so much love for this book! My heart hurts just thinking about it! ❤ This was everything I ever wanted to read! Evelyn, her story and the bi rep! GAH! It was perfect through and through! I can’t even put into words how much I loved this, but of course that didn’t stop me from trying! *lol* Just in case you actually want to read my gibberish, here’s the link to my review! 😉
This book had me screaming „Bloody Hell!!“ at the top of my lungs! >_< I swear the last 200 pages didn’t only have me at the edge of my seat but also caused me to curse like a sailor! Mind-blowing! Fast-paced! Shocking! And oh so good are just a few words that come to mind! XD I thought Illuminae was the best book I read this year, well, scratch that! Illuminae’s got nothing on Gemina! 😛 Read the extent of my enthusiasm here!
It Ends with Us:
When I started to read „It Ends with Us“ I expected a typical romance story. What I got was something entirely different than I singed up for, but it was still a really well-written book. It was the first Colleen Hoover book I ever read and it definitely made me want to take a closer look at her other works. I’ll approach them with caution after reading „It Ends with Us“ though, because as it seems Colleen is an author who’s not afraid of taking on quite heavy and intriguing topics. XD
I was pondering between 3 and 4 paws here but in the end I decided to give it four. I think Jojo Moyes was very brave to write a book like that after „Me Before You“ and I certainly didn’t expect „After You“ to go into this kind of direction. Considering it all it was a very realistic approach though, and after the ending I’m very curious how everything is going to turn out in book 3.
Fruits Basket Vol. 18:
I swear this manga series is only getting better and better! ❤ Unfortunately this was already Vol. 18 which means there are only 5 volumes left. 😦 I don’t know what I’ll do once I finished „Fruits Basket“ but if anyone of you knows a smiliarly awesome series, please let me know! I’m all eyes and ears! 😛
So what about you? Did you read any interesting books in April? What was your favourite and did your already read the books I read? If yes, what did you think of them?
Talk to me and let me know! =)
