April Wrap Up!

This month seemed to fly by or is it still March? I honestly have no idea! My days are all mixed up. I hope that everyone is safe and healthy! It’s such a scary time and I’m so glad I’m able to still pick up a book.


I read 24 books again that totaled 9,069 pages.

I have filled in letters B, G, & R on my AtoZ challenge

I’ve also read 19 books for my #startonyourshelfathon !!! I had a bunch of big books month!! Chunky book month!

I participated in the O.W.L’s readathon for the first time! I chose to be a Librarian and I want to be able to do Mermaid Linguistics training! For Librarian, I needed: Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, Defense Against the Dark Arts, History of Magic, & Transfiguration. For Mermaid Linguistics training: Herbology. I was between careers before I settled on Librarian. You might see other prompts that I did. This was so much fun! I can’t wait for August!

Books Read:

Sorcery of Thorns

This was such a great book and I loved that it was a standalone! *Own*

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Milk and Honey

I was not the biggest fan of this one. Kinda disappointed. This was a prompt for my O.W.L’s- Herbology *Own*

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The Starless Sea

Another one that I was disappointed in. I think, I might be in the minority though. This was another O.W.L’s prompt- Defense Against the Dark Arts! *Library*

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Nightshade (Nightshade, #1; Nightshade World, #4)

This has been on my book shelf for sooo long. Glad to finally get to it. It was an okay read. I will continue the series though. *Own*

Rating: 3 out of 5.

A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers, #1)

I loved this so much. My first 5 star read of the year!! This was another O.W.L’s prompt-Transfiguration *Own*

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Shadow Me (Shatter Me, #4.5)

I felt like this was unnecessary. I should have probably lowered my rating. This was for O.W.L’s- Potions *Library ebook*

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Little Women

I really wish I read this when I was younger. I did not appreciate it as much now. It was an O.W.L’s prompt-Arithmancy *Own*

Rating: 3 out of 5.

A Heart So Fierce and Broken (Cursebreakers, #2)

I did not love this as much as the first book. I still enjoyed it though. *Own*

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Bromance Book Club (Bromance Book Club, #1)

I enjoyed this and it was great to break up the fantasy! *Own*

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Heart of Flames (Crown of Feathers #2)

Wow, was this a big book! It was really enjoyable though! O.W.L’s prompt- Ancient Runes *Own*

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Red Rising (Red Rising Saga, #1)

I did a buddy read with Brittany @ Perfectly Tolerable. It did not match the hype but still enjoyable. I linked her review in mine, if you want to see both! *Own*

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The Guinevere Deception (Camelot Rising, #1)

Another OwlCrate book down! haha. I was hoping to like this more than I did. :-/ O.W.L’s prompt- History of Magic *Own*

Rating: 3 out of 5.


Undercover Bromance (Bromance Book Club, #2)

This expired at my library in a few days. I needed a break from fantasy, so gave it a shot. *Library ebook*

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The Shadows Between Us

Wow, this was a great one! I’m so glad I finally picked it up! *Library*

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The Stonekeeper (Amulet, #1)

I saw this come through the library so many times. I’ve been collecting them over the years and decided to give them a go. I made it to volume 6 because I need 7. I think these are cute and interesting. The artwork is beautiful. *Own*

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Upside of Falling

This was a cute and light read. It was a nice break from fantasy. It’s a good book if you are in a slump too. *Library*

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1)

This was such an amazing read!! I loved it so much! *Own*

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Defy Me (Shatter Me, #5)

This book was such a letdown and I have a pretty rant-y review. I originally picked this for the O.W.L’s prompt- Care of Magical Creatures *Own*

Rating: 1.5 out of 5.

The Diviners (The Diviners, #1)

I am so glad to have finally read this. I really enjoyed it!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

    • HAHA!! 3.5 isn’t bad really. So many people are busier at this time orrrr finding it hard to read. So that’s good! I’m the opposite and devouring books to try and keep my sanity. Thank you! I hope you have a wonderful May. It’s my birthday month & Oliver’s, so should be great! 🙂
