It’s April! Where is the time going? At least this should mean the end for snowstorms *fingers crossed*. There were some really great books this month but also a lot of just okay/decent books.
The Ruby Circle – Richelle Mead. 4/5 stars. I’m so sad this series is over. It was a great final book and I thought Richelle Mead did a great job balancing the need for us to love these character in the spin-off and us wanting to know about the characters we loved from Vampire Academy.
A Radiant Sky – Jocelyn Davies. 3/5 stars. It was a good series overall but it didn’t capture my attention the way my favourite series have.
Lies I Told – Michelle Zink. 3.5/5 stars. Review. I really felt for the main character and her brother but was bothered by the insta-love.
Taken At Dusk – CC Hunter. 3/5 stars. So far this is my least favourite of the series but it was still good. The love triangle was getting to me more in this one than it did in the first books.
Liars, Inc – Paula Stokes. 4/5 stars. Review. So many twists and turns in this book.
Unmade – Sarah Rees Brennan. 4/5 stars. Review. Such a great finale for a great series.
Wither – Lauren DeStefano. 3/5 stars. Another series that was decent and fast to read but didn’t grab me the way others have.
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Abertalli. 4.5/5 stars. Review. This book was so funny and had great relationships.
One of the Guys – Lisa Aldin. 3/5 stars. Review. It was cute and the bonding was nice but I did have a few problems with it.
Fever – Lauren DeStefano. 3/5 stars. My feelings are still the same as the first book.
The Thorn and the Sinking Stone – CJ Dushinski. 3/5 stars.Review coming. I really liked the concept and the main characters but the world-building had some issues.
Sever – Lauren DeStefano. 3.5/5 stars. This one ended up being my favourite of the three.
Shutter – Courtney Alameda. 4/5 stars. Review. Can a book be both fun and terrifying? Because this one was.
Tempest – Julie Cross. 3/5 stars. Another series, yet again, that was good but didn’t blow me away.
Solitaire – Alice Oseman. 3/5 stars. Review. The characters were great but I found the whole Solitaire mystery lacking in actual mystery.
Finding Paris – Joy Preble. 3/5 stars. Review. Had a great sisterly bond but major bad decisions and insta-love.
Unwholly – Neal Shusterman. 4/5 stars. I am so loving this series. It’s creepy and disturbing with great characters and it feels like the kind of series that keeps one-upping its last effort.
The Sin Eater’s Daughter – Melinda Salisbury. 3/5 stars. Review. It was such a great concept and I really liked the history of the world but the main character didn’t do much for herself and, sadly, there was insta-love.
The Iron Trials – Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. 3.5/5 stars. Very solid and fun first book for a series.
Vortex – Julie Cross. 3.5/5 stars. I liked this one a little more than the first but it still didn’t blow me away.
Timestorm – Julie Cross. 3/5 stars. Same as the rest of the series. Good but didn’t blow me away.
Invincible – Amy Reed. 3/5 stars. Review. It was such a great concept but there was insta-love and so many bad decisions.
Prom Nights from Hell – Anthology. 3/5 stars. I’ve read the rest of the ‘From Hell’ series so figured why not finish it up.
Mom and Me and Mom – Maya Angelou. 3.5/5 stars. Such an interesting woman and an interesting relationship between her and her mother.
The Queen of the Tearling – Erika Johansen. 4/5 stars. I really liked the main character and the world that was created. Excited that the sequel is out soon.
Racing Savannah – Miranda Kenneally. 3.5/5 stars. I really like the Hundred Oaks series. They’re a bit predictable but the romance is sweet and they’re a quick read.
The Wrong Side of Right – Jenn Marie Thorne. 5/5 stars! Review. Love, love, love. For me, it was so perfect.
The Power of Six – Pittacus Lore. 3/5 stars. It’s been so long since I read I Am Number Four that it took me a while to get into this world again. But once I did, I enjoyed it.
My Best Everything – Sarah Tomp. 3/5 stars. Review coming. It took a little bit to get used to the writing style but the main character’s downward spiral was believable even if the whole teenage moonshine business was a little out there.
Sea of Shadows – Kelley Armstrong. 3/5 stars. Not my favourite by her but has the potential to be a really good series.
The Glass Arrow – Kirsten Simmons. 2/5 stars. I had some major world-building issues and it felt like not much ever really happened.
