Hello my lovelies. I am sorry my April TBR is a few days late. I’ve been so busy these last few weeks, that I feel like I haven’t even had a moment to breathe. I’m slowly catching back up now though, and I have posted all of my reviews for my March books. I am slowly getting my life back together! Before I get into it, I just want to ask how are you guys? What are you all reading and getting up to? Let me know in the comments and let’s catch up. I hope you’re all doing great.
March Wrap up!
Book Club Read: My Sister, The Serial Killer – Oyinkan Braithwaite 🌟🌟🌟🌟
I found this book to be something completely different to what I was expecting it to be. I was expecting something dark and creepy, but I got something that was quite light-hearted in the way it was written and contained quite a bit of humour. It was a pleasant surprise and made a real refreshing change of speed. I really enjoyed it!
The Ten Thousand Doors of January – Alix E Harrow 🌟🌟🌟🌟
This was such a beautiful book full of powerful characters! I didn’t fall in love with it quite as much as the first book of hers that I read but I loved this one all the same. It was original and magical and I thoroughly enjoyed the worlds that she created in this book.
22 Dead Little Bodies – Stuart MacBride – DNF
I didn’t find this book particularly interesting and it just didn’t grip me so I DNF’d it after a couple of pages. It might seem harsh, but I made it my New Years resolution not to force myself to read books that I am not feeling. It’s nothing personal to the book or the author, it’s just that it didn’t quite catch my mood at the time when I read it. I will be writing a full post on my views on DNF’ing books soon.
Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte 🌟🌟🌟
It wasn’t the first time that I’ve read this book, and I enjoyed it just as much as the first time. It’s a lovely book and such an iconic classic to me. It’s not my top favourite and can be hard to follow in places but I always enjoy reading it every now and then.
The Chain – Adrian McKinty 🌟🌟🌟🌟
I really enjoyed this book. It’s well written and the characters are great. It’s a well put together plot and overall a really nice thriller. I did find it a bit predictable in places but over all an enjoyable read!
The Betrayals – Bridget Collins – DNF
Again, it just wasn’t drawing me in. I do think I will try this one in the future though as I feel like I will enjoy it but I just need to be in a specific mood to really get into it.
My Dark Vanessa – Kate Elizabeth Russell 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Absolutely, the most amazing, dark, disturbing debut ever. I found this book to be so strong and well written. I would heavily recommend, though read with caution and be aware of trigger warnings when reading this book as it is quite a heavy topic.
I’m not doing the book blue book this month, as it’s a book that I have already read, so I will get straight into the Jar picks:
- The Midnight Library – Matt Haig
- The Hypnotist – Lars Kepler
- The Gilded Ones – Namina Forna
- Exciting Times – Naoise Dolan
- Girl A – Abigail Dean
- Luster – Raven Leilani
I feel like my TBR pile for this month is looking pretty amazing. There’s some books on here that I have heard amazing things about and I’ve wanted to read for a while now! I can’t wait to fill you all in on how I find them! If you have read any of these, please feel free to let me know what you thought of them. I hope you are all keeping well. Take care xo
