I’ve been reading so much, but I don’t always feel like writing a full review for everything. I was inspired by Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Quick Lit posts, as well as Hannah at So Obsessed With‘s monthly Quick Lit posts, and decided to do something similar as a way to briefly discuss the books I read in a month but don’t write full reviews for.
If I thought March flew by, then April whizzed by in a blur! I can’t believe it’s already the first week of May!
My reading felt like it was on a pretty steady pace, and I finished 12 books last month, which is a bit more than I read in March.
I’ve reviewed four of those books on the blog:
In My Dreams I Hold A Knife, Ashley Winstead;
I Am The Ghost In Your House, Maria Romasco-Moore;
The Book of the Most Precious Substance, Sara Gran; and
And Then I Woke Up, Malcolm Devlin.
I enjoyed all of those books to varying degrees!
I read one e-ARC (Once Upon a K-Prom by Kat Cho) that I really liked, and will post that review closer to the May 17 release date.
Here are my thoughts on the rest of my April reads:
Survive the Dome, Kosoko Jackson (e-ARC) – 3⭐
This was fast-paced and had lots of action, but the characters felt flat. I would have liked to know more about Marco and Catherine, for example, but they felt shallow to me.
How To Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy, Jenny Odell (owned) – 3⭐
This was really interesting at times, but no matter how much I really tried to focus on it I think a lot of it went over my head.
Crumbs, Danie Stirling (e-ARC) – 4⭐
This graphic novel was so cute and sweet! It was a great cozy, happy read and the illustrations were delightful! I wish I’d been able to learn more about the magic and how it worked, but I quite enjoyed this.
Real Easy, Marie Rutkoski (library) – 3⭐
I really wanted to love this, but I found it way too hard to wrap my head around the number of narrators and it kept me from feeling like I knew or cared about any of the characters. The mystery was good, but I couldn’t get into this as much as I wanted to.
A Night To Die For, Lisa Schroeder (owned) – 3⭐
I love this cover! This was a quick read with chapters that kept me wanting to see what happened next, but like Real Easy, I liked the mystery but the number of revolving narrators kept me from feeling like I got to know any one character or that they had much depth.
