April is going to be a busier reading month for me. Well, I normally read a lot, but I don’t normally plan as many books as I have planned for this month. However, I don’t normally participate in readathons and this month I am participating in two. In case you missed my previous posts, I am co-hosting the End Game Readathon with Kari, and just participating in the OWLs Readathon. I’m a little late to writing this TBR, so a couple of my reads for the readathons are done and I have already had to make a couple of changes from my initial TBR. So this will be my updated TBR, and yes, I will still be including the ones I’ve technically already finished. Let’s get to it!
March has come to an end. I have no idea where the time went, but here we are getting ready for April. This wasn’t my best reading month, and I seem to recall that last March I read almost thirty books. So this month wasn’t quite that, but considering I took a lengthy vacation where I visited one of my best friends in the world and had minimal time to read, I did pretty good. This month I read 20 books, and I will say on the whole that it was filled with some really good reads. My lowest rated book was two stars, and I had several five star reads. Without further ado, let’s just get into the breakdown of what I read in March.
Finish Harry Potter Re-Read
Last year, in 2018, I made plans to re-read Harry Potter. I read the first four, so I partially succeeded in this, but I still have three to go. I want to finish this up, but the waiting list for the Harry Potter audiobooks from the library is so long! I am still really wanting to get through them though.
Ace of Shades
Ace of Shades was advertised to me as one thing, and then it turned out that the thing it was advertised was a super tiny part of the book. I was really, really looking forward to the scenario described in the synopsis, the shadow game, and it was barely a part of the whole story. That being said, I still really enjoyed the book, but I just felt like it wasn’t completely what it was advertised and that was disappointing to me.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
I read this one because the movie was coming out and I thought that I ought to read the book before the movie came out. I wasn’t expecting much because I was in this place where I wasn’t feeling YA contemporary, but this one just blew me out of the water. I was obsessed with the story and read it really quickly. I loved, loved, loved it. It was sooo cute and Lara Jean was a fantastic protagonist. It made me really rethink me thoughts on YA Contemporary, and made me open my mind a bit more!
