Hey everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend and I hope everyone with the extra Monday off IS PARTYING LIKE A MANIAC!
SOO April….it wasn’t too bad hahaha! I read 9 books- one being a graphic novel and another two being novels and the rest being full length novels. It felt like this month was soooo loooong and I certainly could of read more but I got into a reading slump after the first book I read so that damaged my progress. But let’s just get to the wrap up!
So as I said, I read a total of nine books and it feels like they were all good, but overall believe that March, February and January felt like better reading months for me, which is really weird, because I didn’t hate any of the books I read this month.
This book was a really great read. It dealt with mental illness in a delicate, but at the same time realistic and honest way which made me finish this book in a flash. I had very few problems with this book.
Prodigy did a fantastic job for solidifying the Legend trilogy for me. Though Legend was a good read, I wanted more and Prodigy gave more. There was non stop action, drama and tension and I can’t wait to finish the series now.
This. Book. Was. Excellent! I just loved it so much! It was such a refreshing contemporary because it just felt real and the characters were raw and angsty and just normal teenagers! A big recommendation for anyone and everyone!
Terrific read, The Art of Being Normal is. I simply just enjoyed reading it so mch and venturing into the characters minds. Both the main protagonists were likeable and a great dynamic duo together. Another book I recommend!
The artwork in this graphic novel is WICKED (see what I did there?). But seriously, it’s gorgeous. So bold and eye catching. The plot was very intriguing, though it always had an under current of confusion. Definitely picking up the next volume after that cliffhanger!
How Hard Can Love Be? By Holly Bourne– 3.75/5 (My Review)
A tricky book this one is. On one hand I really enjoyed it and in the other- WHY ALL THE FEMINISM?! More on it in my review when I do finish up with it, but at times it felt like feminism was there for feminism sake. I don’t think I’ll be picking up the last book in the series as I already know I’ll be rolling my eyes through it!
I’ll do a quick review for these to novellas soon, but my basic feelings was that they just give you small tastes of Ahdieh’s beautiful and rich writing. They don’t really add a lot to the story, but they were still pretty awesome!
OMG THIS BOOK WAS GREAT! It totally through me with the not so fantasy setting at the start, but boy was I wrong because though it is set in the real world, the atmosphere is just so magical, you get engrossed in it. And the character- THE CHARACTERS WERE SO GOOD! Can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

Ratings wise, favourite book for the month has to be Radio Silence by Alice Oseman. I know you are probably tired of reading about how much I loved Radio Silence, BUT I LOVED RADIO SILENCE! Please pick it up if you get the chance because you won’t regret it!
I’m still going strong on my Instagram! If you have a bookstagram account add me @astrangersguidetonovels and I’ll follow you back! It’s funny how Instagram have became apart of my everyday life somehow. I can’t go a day without thinking about it!
Anyway, here are some of my favourite bookish pics from my account this month!
So you guys…I think I did well in my French speaking exam! Thank you for all of your awesome comments on it in my March Wrap Up! I revised to death for it and stressed out like I would be shot if I did do bad. I even sacrificed two blogging days and it paid off! There’s still a couple of more exams to go but I feel a lot more comfortable and confident about the next one. Though now I have 300+ words of French stuck in my head now…
And sorry for being the most awful blogger this month! It just feels like everything has been happening at the same time and I barely had any time to look at your awesome posts! I’m going to to try and get to as many as I can through the bank holiday weekend and I might actually start acting like a good blogger!
That is all for my April Wrap Up! If you made your way through this long post give yourself some chocolate, my treat! ;D Tell me down below what books you read this month and which one has been your favourite!
I’ll write soon!
