Wow, I can’t believe it’s May already! I know its a cliche, but this year really is flying by! I have to say my reading has taken a little bit of a downwards turn this year – I’ve just been so busy this year with my master’s degree that reading has had to be put on the back burner a little bit! That being said, most months I’ve still managed to read about six books. But in April I only managed three! Nevertheless, I really enjoyed all three of the books I read!
The first book I finished was Corrupt by Penelope Douglas which I gave 4 stars! As you can tell from my rating, I really enjoyed reading Corrupt! Its a new adult romance, but quite a dark one I have to say! It follows Erika, jumping back and forth between the present and a night a couple of years previously that changed her life forever. As well as a dangerous group of men that she just can’t resist being around. Its addictive, dark, and it just pulls you straight in! You should definitely try it out!
Next I read The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen! This was a reread for me, but this time round I still gave it 5 stars! I just love Kelsea so, so much. And Mace! Mace is my favourite character in the book! This is a bit of a strange one, it reads like a fantasy, but its actually set in the future in a regressed society, and it follows Kelsea as she takes her rightful place as Queen in a kingdom on the brink of war. Its the perfect mix of fantasy, politics, and fantastic characters!
And finally I read Geekerella by Ashley Poston, and another excellent book! I gave it 4 stars! This is such a cute read! Its a Cinderella retelling but in a YA contemporary setting, a first for me! Have you seen the cover? Its AMAZING! Its a really fun book, and its perfect fix for anyone with a geeky side to them! It has fandom references, conventions, cosplay…it really appealed to me! Its fast paced, fun, and so unique! 100% recommend it!
So! Those are the books I read in April! I know its not a lot, but I did really enjoy them all! And I’m hoping for a really good reading month in May. I hope you all have a great reading month too!
