April is over and I had an average reading month. I was more into reading earlier in the month and by mid-April was sort of sick of it. It took me 10 days to read Big Little Lies, which isn’t that long, but it felt like forever! So I struggled a bit this month because I was focusing more on my university assignments and felt guilty about reading. Then I also started my new job, which drained me completely because I’m not used to working 8 hours a day.
In April I managed to read five books. One of the books I read was The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers, which is a book I reread over the course of three weeks to write an essay. Here are the books that I was able to read!
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne –
A wonderful read that was very unputdownable.
Do Not Become Alarmed by Malie Maloy –
I enjoyed the mystery, but there were too many characters.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – DNF
I really tried to get into this one! I just couldn’t understand the language and what was going on. I feel like an idiot for not liking it.
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty –
This book was full of complex stories and interesting characters.
The Yellow Birds (reread) by Kevin Powers –
I still think it is a three-star read, but it is written very well.
Future Leaders of Nowhere by Emily Bairne –
A very cute romance set at a camp in Australia!
Full reviews of some of these books coming soon!
I am pretty excited for the books I have to read in May. After not ordering a book from Book Depository for around four months, I realised that I didn’t have any books in my bookcase that I hadn’t read yet. So the last two are books that I have bought from Book Depository and just arrived a few days ago! The first two are NetGalley books.
Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant
This is a buddy read with Jasmine @How Useful It Is!
Roses of May by Dot Hutchison
I’m so excited to read this! It is the second book in The Collector series by Dot Hutchison (the first book was The Butterfly Garden) and I just got it on NetGalley!!!!
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Everyone has been reading this and loving it so I wanted to join in on the fun.
The Breakdown by B. A. Paris
This book has been on my TBR for a while and I want to finally read it.
I am really pumped for the books available for me to read in May. They all sound so good.
