April 2018 Wrap Up

This month has flown by! I’ve read some books I loved, and one not so much. I stuck to mostly YA this month, (and with all the ARCs I have for this year, it looks like I have a lot more in my future.) but that’s fine since YA is one of my favorite genre. I find I can read YA faster than adult books for the most part, and I still adore them, so it’s a win-win!



First off, I started with a Contemporary. While Romance/Contemporary isn’t my preferred genre, and I’m normally not a fan of romance outside of Fantasy, I went into this one hoping to really enjoy it. Sadly that was not that case. While it was okay, I can’t say I really liked this one, and ended up giving it 3 stars. ❂❂❂


After reading Children of Icarus earlier this year, I was super excited about this ARC. It was an interesting read, and I enjoyed it, but not quite as much as the first. I feel like less happened in this one, and while I’m eagerly awaiting the next book, this one felt more like a filler or a bridge between the first and third book, without adding much depth of it’s own. That said I enjoyed reading it and gave it 4 stars. ❂❂❂❂


This book…I have some friends who rave about it, so I went in with pretty high expectations. While it didn’t blow me away, I loved it, and highly recommend it! It is a slower read than I’m used to, but I never got bored or lost interest, which is saying a lot for me. I loved the characters, and while I guessed a few of the twists, I still loved seeing how they would play out. Still since it didn’t have the ‘wow’ factor that I crave, I gave it 4 stars, but if I did half points, it would really be a 4.5. ❂❂❂❂


This was the one adult book I read this month. I have loved LIS (LoveInspired SUSPENSE) books since I was twelve and asked the local librarian for a good mystery series. While it’s more than a series, it’s a whole imprint of books offered by Harlequin Romance. I love them because they are each clean Christian romances with plenty of suspense. While I don’t always read Christian fiction, or clean romances, it’s nice to read when I want something quick and simple, yet entertaining. This one was by an author I had yet to read, but I really like her style, and look forward to reading more of her work. I was excited to get this and two other ARCs for this imprint, so look for reviews for the others soon. This one gets 4 stars. ❂❂❂❂


Okay, confession. I started this last October as I had snagged an ARC and planned to review it before it came out last November…For some reason, soon after starting it, I ended up putting it down, likely I had blog tours coming up, and had to read those first. Then I started working, and one thing lead to another. Well I finally finished it, and loved it! Now I’m slightly glad I waited so long, as I need book two now! Ah! But at least I don’t have to wait quite so long as I would have had I finished it last October. 5 stars ❂❂❂❂❂

What did you read in April? Any books you absolutely loved or hated? Have you read any of the books I listed? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
