What a weird month this has been! I’ve been doing a ton of reading, but not a lot of book buying, which is probably for the best. However, I did still end up with some books this month so we’re going to do a quick and dirty haul for you today.
Archives for April 2020
**Disclaimer: I received a free early access reader’s copy of You Let Me In by Camilla Bruce in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for this opportunity.
You Let Me In by Camilla Bruce is an adult novel that falls in sort of the mystery thriller genre. However, it has some fantasy and horror elements as well. It tells the story of Cassandra Tipp as she writes about her life before she mysteriously disappeared. I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads. You Let Me In releases on April 21st.
April’s #bestiemademe read is Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller! I listened to this one as an audiobook, just to switch it up from the usual style I’ve done for reading the previous #bestiemademe books. Daughter of the Pirate King is a YA fantasy novel about, you guessed it, the daughter of the pirate king, Alosa. I rated it four stars on Goodreads.
Call Me By Your Name was one of my favorite reads last year. After I read the book, we had to go out and get the movie to watch as well. It’s definitely not a story for everyone, but for me it was a beautiful love story that left me wanting more. When I heard Find Me was going to be published, I knew that I needed to read it as soon as possible.
I love how people draw inspiration for these bookish tags from the most everyday of things. Personally there are some things I would change on this tag, but it’s not mine so I’m rolling with the punches here. Check out my answers below the cut.
I read We Were Liars at the beginning of this year. I forgot exactly when Ashley recommended it to me, but it was long enough for me to have had it on my TBR, finally buy a copy, and then have it sit there for a little while longer.
Due of the nature of this book, it’s going to be a short and vague review. I do apologize in advance.
I kind of debated not making this post this month because when I looked up April releases, there weren’t too many books that I was super interested in. However, I think I’ve pretty much made this a monthly segment on this blog so I think I will keep doing it.
**Disclaimer: I received a free advanced reader’s copy of Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for this opportunity.
Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan is the second book in the Something Dark and Holy series. It is the sequel to Wicked Saints, and picks up not long after the first book leaves off. Ruthless Gods releases on April 7th. I rated it four stars on GoodReads.
