Monthly Wrap-up – April 2017

IMG_20170430_131929_030I know it’s been a few days since I last posted, but I had a migraine that lasted nearly three days, and it is basically impossible for me to use a computer when I have a migraine, so I wasn’t able to post much this week. Sorry! Regular posts will start again on Monday!

In April, my goal was to read nine books, and I technically completed that goal by reading a total of ten books, but I did not read two of the books on my April tbr list. Instead, I read seven from my planned list and added three different books. The first book I added was the next book in the Sigma Force series, Bloodline by James Rollins. And then, I re-read A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas in preparation for the release of the third book in the series, which was released on May 2nd.

In April, I’d say my favorite read was A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed this story until I re-read it. However, even though I have a favorite, I enjoyed all of the books I read this month…more so than in other months! I’ve written reviews for two of these books so far–make sure to check them out–and be on the lookout for the remaining reviews!

Books I read this month:

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas – 5/5🌸

The Devil Colony by James Rollins (Sigma Force series #7) – 4.5/5🌸

Bloodline by James Rollins (Sigma Force series #8) – 4.5/5🌸

Heartborn* by Terry Maggert – 4/5🌸

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – 4/5🌸

All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely – 4/5🌸

Duels & Deception* by Cindy Anstey (ARC- published April 11, 2017) – 3.5/5🌸

The Circus* by Olivia Levez (ARC – published May 4, 2017) – 3.5/5🌸

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken – 3.5/5🌸

Fade Away by Harlan Coben – 3/5🌸

*I received free copies of the books with an asterisk(*) next to their title. I won a free copy of The Circus through a Goodreads giveaway, and I received free e-book copies of Duels & Deception and Heartborn from their publishers via NetGalley for review consideration. Receiving a free copy of a book in no way affects the honesty of my reviews!
