I know, we’re already halfway into the month and I haven’t posted the books that I want to read in April. I really don’t have that many that I really want to get to this month, so I’m going to make this list brief.
The first couple are ones that I was in the middle of reading in March, but hadn’t finished by the time the month was over. And as soon as April started, I pretty much finished them. So I could have counted them in March if March had a couple more days in the month. And as I write this post I realized that I haven’t done my March Wrap-Up, so I’ll probably include the books that I read in March with the books that I read in April.
The first book that I finished in April was Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch. I actually listened to this on audiobook, and overall really enjoyed it. It follows a girl named Addie who goes to Ireland for her aunt’s wedding. And so much chaos occurs. I went into more detail in my review. But overall, I really enjoyed the story, and it made me want to travel more.
The other book that I finished in April but started in March was The Dangerous Art of Blending In by Angelo Surmelis. This book follows a boy named Evan who had recently come out to his family as being gay, but being strictly religious, his mother refuses to see him as anything but a disappointment. It’s a heartbreaking story that has a strong trigger warning for domestic abuse.
Those were the two books that I started in March, but finished in April. I probably could have finished them if I had more time, but with school and work, I’ve been pressed for time. But I do have more books that I want to get to this month. Even though I’m probably setting myself up for failure. But I’ve already started and finished a book this month. It was a graphic novel, yes, but it counts as a book read.
I’m not going to go into too much detail about what this volume is about since it’s the 7th volume in the series, but what I will say is that it’s a story about a boy name Luffy who wants to be the greatest pirate in the world. It follows his adventures in trying to do that and the people he meets along the way. He gets into a lot of shenanigans and causes a lot of trouble. It’s a very action-packed series, and I fly through every volume I pick up.
I recently picked up Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman from the library. I’m only a few stories in, but it basically follows the Norse gods and the trouble that they get into, especially Loki. The main reason I decided to read this is because my boyfriend and I have been binging the Marvel movies since I had never seen them. After watching Thor, I had an interest in learning about Norse mythology.
I’m also about one hundred pages into A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab. This is the final book in the Shades of Magic trilogy, and the first book, A Darker Shade of Magic, follows a man named Kell who is one of the last Antari, or magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons: Red, Grey, White and once, Black.
Other than the ones that I’ve finished already or have started, there aren’t that many more books that I plan to get to this month. Especially because I have a feeling that A Conjuring of Light is going to take me a long time since it’s over 600 pages long. And with school and work, I’m not sure how much time I’m going to have to actually read other than on the weekends. Plus I just recently bought a new Pokemon game, and that’s been taking up a lot of my time too.
What books do you plan on reading this month? Or have already read since we’re already halfway through the month? I’d love to know!
