April 2016 Wrap Up

This month I read a total of 14 (discounted 1 for the 2 DNF) books, but it was a rather tumultuous month. Only one grabbed the coveted 5 star review and made it’s way into my favorites which was I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson. I did have some solid 4 stars that I really, really enjoyed like Station ElevenSoulless, This is Not a TestDo Not Enter and This Song Will Save Your Life. Also, I was able to do the first non-fiction for the year in Orange is the New Black which I ended up really loving.

There were some books that left me severely disappointed like Changeless, the sequel to Soulless and 2 DNF which stopped the Mara Dyer trilogy for me and Bad Romeo which put me off New Adult for a while (again). I was somewhat slumpy some days because of the frustration with the DNF books but I regained my footing at the end of the month.
