April Wrap-Up

Hello, bookworms!
How have you all been doing? It’s time for another monthly wrap-up!

I think I’m on a roll as far as reading goes, surprise, surprise – I read as many as 18 books in April!!
18 books!! It certainly came as a complete surprise even to myself, it’s mind-boggling as a matter of fact lol

Anyways, let’s take a look at the books I read in April, shall we? 🙂

Quite honestly, I don’t even know how I could squeeze so many books in a single month. April is shorter than other months by a day, but 18 books? That’s insanity lol
The only thing I’m certain is, it’s thanks to our 24 Hour readathon that Lili@Lili’s Blissful Pages and I have been holding each month.  It’s been a hit or miss, but I’ve managed to finish three books on average during our readathon. Thanks, Lili!

You can read my thoughts on these books by clicking the links below.

99 Days
American Panda
Simon vs. the Homo Sapience Agenda
The Secrets She Keeps
The Couple Next Door
One of Us Is Lying
The Girl Before
The Cinderella Murder
A Column of Fire
Body of Evidence
Glazed Murder
All the Good Parts
Pancakes and Corpses
A Stranger in the House

As usual, it is very difficult to pick up only one, so instead, I’ll just pick up the books I loved on an equal level.

I have a very very strong attachment to each and every one of those books.  I could always re-read them if time permits!

Thankfully, there’s no book that disappointed me. There are books that I was not 100% happy about (like 99 Days), but I enjoyed listening/reading all the books I read this month. That says something, doesn’t it?

I’m participating a year-long reading challenge, The Ultimate Reading Challenge since January, and the book for April is a book with a single word title.

Well, there’s only one book that fits this challenge, isn’t there? Conveniently I read YOU without actually meaning to. That was totally coincidental but it goes without saying how much I ended up enjoying the book 🙂

How about you? Did you have a good reading month in April?
Comment below and let me know!

Thanks so much for reading as always, and I’ll see you in my next post 🙂

    1. Thanks Melanie for commenting! Well, to be honest, despite having finished reading The Upsides of Unrequited, I don’t think I can write a review on that one… it’s not that I didn’t like it, but there’s not much to say about that book. I don’t have any particular thoughts on that one other than the general impression like ‘I liked it, it’s not bad.’ 😦


  1. Wow! 18 books is really amazing! Even that readathon, do you skip sleeping to read? Hahaa I enjoyed One of Us is Lying a lot as well as Simon and the Homo Agenda. Did you enjoy The Girl Before and The Couple Next Door? They are still on my TBR 😊 Great wrap up!

    1. Thank you, Jasmine! No, I don’t skip sleeping other than readathon. I tend to go to bed late, but I get at least 5 hours of sleep every day.
      I liked The Girl Before, but man, The Couple Next Door was one of my faves. It’s crazy, but so good.

  2. We’ve actually read two of the same books, but I didn’t read them this month. I read Glazed Murder in January and I read You for Bookclub last month. I’m amazed that I smile as I think that I’ve read some of the same books as you:)
