April Wrap-Up/May TBR

I read a lot of ARCs in April, knowing May was going to be full of releases and wanted to stay ahead as much as I could. I think I failed but I gave it a good try!

April Wrap-Up:

summer of sloane Summer of Sloane – Erin L Schneider. 4/5 stars. Review. I liked Sloane and enjoyed her growth journey through the summer.

even if the sky falls Even if the Sky Falls  – Mia Garcia. 3.5/5 stars. Review. A quick read that was enjoyable but the supporting characters could have had more depth.

specials Specials – Scott Westerfeld. 3/5 stars. I can’t put my finger on it but there was something keeping me from connecting with the characters this whole series.

walk in the sun A Walk in the Sun – Michelle Zink. 3.5/5 stars. Review. I liked the slow progression from strangers to co-workers to friends to more.

ask me how i got here Ask Me How I Got Here – Christine Heppermann. 3/5 stars. It was a quick read, told in verse style.

the crown's game The Crown’s Game – Evelyn Skye. 4.5/5 stars. Review. This is probably my favourite book so far this year.

night speed Night Speed – Chris Howard. 3.5/5 stars. Review. Fast-paced but not too fast that I got lost.

extras Extras – Scott Westerfeld. 3/5 stars. Still not connecting:(

queen of hearts Queen of Hearts – Colleen Oakes. 3/5 stars. Review. It was interesting but took a while for any action to happen, almost felt like a prequel novella instead of the beginning of a series.

girl against the universe Girl Against the Universe – Paula Stokes. 4/5 stars. Review. I loved all these quirky characters:)

the hunt The Hunt – Megan Shepherd. 4/5 stars. Review. The stranger this series gets, the more I like it.

raven king The Raven King – Maggie Stiefvater. 4.5/5 stars. Holy amazeballs I love this series and these characters and want to cry because it’s over.

outliers The Outliers – Kimberly McCreight. 3.5/5 stars. Review. Creepy but sometimes a little rushed.

last time we were us The Last Time We Were Us – Leah Konen. 3/5 stars. Review. The plot kept trying to grab me but every time it almost got me, something seemed to let go.

bridge to terabithia Bridge to Terabithia – Katherine Paterson. 4/5 stars. This was for a children’s book challenge. I’d watch the movie but never read the book. I don’t think I’m okay.

fall of butterflies The Fall of Butterflies – Andrea Portes. 3/5 stars. Review coming. It took a while to get used to the narration style but once I did, I liked it.

gilded Gilded – Christina Farley. 3/5 stars. This is another one where, for some reason, I just couldn’t lost myself in the plot and characters.

suffer love Suffer Love – Ashley Herring Blake. 3/5 stars. Review coming. I really liked the concept but I spent so much of the book being so angry at the adults that I couldn’t fully invest my attention on the romance.

wild swans Wild Swans – Jessica Spotswood. 3.5/5 stars. Review coming. Another one where I spent a lot of time angry at an adult but this one had a lot of supporting characters that were well-developed and I really liked it.

Book Haul

This time, I’m not waiting months between posting updates of book hauls:)

Bought:

girl who fellflamecasterflawedGlittering Court

The Girl Who Fell – SM Parker. I really wanted a physical copy of this book.

Flamecaster – Cinda Williams Chima. I’ve only read a few of her other books but I enjoyed them so I figured I’d give this new series a try.

Flawed – Cecelia Ahern. I’ve only read Love Rosie/Where Rainbows End by her but I did like it and this one looked intriguing.

The Glittering Court – Richelle Mead. Auto-buy. And so pretty.

ARCs:

the diabolicall in piecestales from shadowhunter

The Diabolic – SJ Kincaid. Look at the cover! Look! In love! The plot sounds amazing too:)

All in Pieces – Suzanne Young. I enjoy her books so I’m excited for a new one.

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy – Clare/Brennan/Johnson/Wasserman. I worry I may one day get sick of this world but for now, I’m not and I’m not ready to say goodbye.

I haven’t done one of these in a while and with renovations making it hard to continue the Exposing My-Shelf feature(which will have to start at Shelf 1 when it does return), this seemed like a good time to start doing some haul posts again.

Book Haul

Back from the Buy 3, Get 4th free sale from Chapters/Indigo/Coles with lots of books. More than I had planned because I am bad at math and ended up with more money left over than I had expected. So I bought more books.

120_0366

Here’s the original eight I had planned on buying. They look so pretty!!! I am ridiculously excited to see how all the Jojo Moyes books together. And I started reading Joyride right away.

120_0367

And the extra four. Ice Kissed was a back-up so I bought it. What Happened to Goodbye and How (not) to Fall in Love seem like good summer reads. All that Burns is the sequel to All that Glows, which I own so I picked up this one. Now I have a matching set.

Now if anyone could tell me where I can buy some time so I can read everything on my TBR list, that would be awesome;)
