What I read in April:
The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins (★★★★☆)
The Three by Sarah Lotz (★★☆☆☆)
Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire (★★★★★)
Thorn by Frances Gordon (★★★☆☆)
No Ordinary Star by M.C. Frank (★★★☆☆)
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (★★★★★)
Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall (★★☆☆☆)
Riders by Veronica Rossi (★★★★☆)
Pax by Sara Pennypacker (★★★☆☆)
The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead (★★☆☆☆)
I really loved Every Heart a Doorway (Seanan McGuire). I mean, come on, it is Seanan McGuire. I also finally read The Raven Boys (Maggie Stiefvater) (since the last book was coming out), and I got a surprise love there, too!
I didn’t know what I would get going in to The Library at Mount Char (Scott Hawkins), but I got something good, because it ended up being one of my favourites so far this year.
The Three (Sara Lotz) has been on my radar for a long time. I was really excited to finally read it. Except that I really didn’t love it. Something about books written as other books (see, it doesn’t even make sense when I write it out) is very irritating. I was really disappointed in The Glittering Court (Richelle Mead), which is surprising because I adored the Vampire Academy series.
I was also mildly disappointed in Thorn (Frances Gordon). It was one I had grabbed at a used book sale a while back, and I was putting off reading it because it sounded SO good. And it wasn’t that good. Colour me sad.
Ten books is a respectable amount to have read this month, but I am looking forward to reading more in May.
What did you read this month? What did you love? Do we have any similar experiences?
Stay bookish, lovelies!
