April wrap-up & May TBR

My exams start tomorrow so this month has been a bit slow on the reading due to revision, but I managed to read five books! One was a poetry and the other a book of quotes so they were very quick reads. I also got to meet Laini Taylor this month and read her brilliant book, Strange the Dreamer. Plus, I got the fabulous April Fairyloot box so even though it’s been a busy month, I’ve had some good bookish treats to get me through!

Books I read in April:

My favourites were Strange the Dreamer because the writing was just outstanding and I loved the characters, plus the story was amazing!!! I also really enjoyed reading the Beauty and the Beast Book of the Film after I had watched it and was still hung up on the brilliance of that live action film. Belle’s Library was a really cute collection of quotes and the illustrations were so adorable, whereas I found the Lost In a Book just slightly less interesting and I found Belle and the Beast to be written differently compared to their characters in the film.Β Love, and you was a really heart-rending collection of poems but personally, I didn’t connect to it much purely because the book was entirely on relationships so it was my least favourite. I recommend all of these books though if you want to experience some awesome writing!

I’m currently rereading ACOTAR in preparation for the release of ACOWAR tomorrow!!!! Unfortunately I have exams so I’ll have to wait till next week to get round to reading it. This month I also want to finally get round to some books that have been sat on my TBR shelf for a while; I need to finish off City of Ashes and maybe read the book that was in the April Fairyloot box!

Have a great month reading everyone! Let me know what you thought of any of these books if you read them.
