April 2018 Wrap Up

April was a VERY busy reading month for me. I did a lot of buddy reads which are always so much fun! In total I read 11 books. It was a good mix of ARCs and books that I purchased. You’ll notice Circe is on my list twice. I alternated between reading the hardback and the digital ARC, but I only count it once toward my wrap up. My reviews for each book are linked below! (If they’re not linked then it means I haven’t finished writing the reviews yet. They’ll be posted eventually.)

Physical Books and ARCs:


Strange the Dreamer ★★★★★

The Wicked Deep ★★★★★

The Smoke Thieves (ARC provided by Penguin/Viking) ★★★

Brightly Burning (ARC provided by HMH) ★★1/2

Spellbook of the Lost and Found ★★★★

Pines (Wayward Pines, #1) ★★★1/2

Bad Romance ★★★★

Circe (UK edition) ★★★★★

Cracked Kingdom ★★


NetGalley Digital ARCs:

Circe provided by Little, Brown ★★★★★

Sky in the Deep provided by St. Martin’s press ★★★

Thank you so much to Julie from Pages and Pens, Melanie at Meltotheany, Jules at JA Ironside, Chelsea at Chelsea Palmer, Tiffany at Tiffany’s Rainy Day Reads, Lilly at Lair of Books , Jen at Pinot and Pages, Paloma, and Jena for buddy reading with me this month!

    • I hope you like Brightly Burning more than I did! Lol I like the OG Jane Eyre storyline but something about it being mixed with sci-fi didn’t quite do it for me. Maybe I’m still feeling the Obsidio hangover? 😮😮 I’m looking forward to many more buddy reads with youuuu! ❤️😘
