I can not believe that April has ended and we are already in May! This year is going by so fast. Sadly, I did not read much in April and I am planning on having a small TBR for May. Let’s just get into my April Wrap-up, hope you enjoy.
Guys, I finally did it! I have started to read the Harry Potter Series for the first time. It was a long time coming and I am so glad I finally decided to pick this up. In April I read the first book in the series Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. I enjoyed the book so much I am starting to understand why this series is so beloved by the book community. To be honest I was a little afraid that I wasn’t going to like it because I attempted to read the first book when I was in the 6th grade back in 2001 and I didn’t finish it. It just hit me that I first tried to read Harry Potter four years after it’s released and this year will mark the 20th anniversary of its release. I can not believe it took me so long. But in my defense, I wasn’t much of a reader when I was a kid.
The other book I finished in April was King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. I started this at the end of March and finished it in April. I did enjoy this book and I can not wait to read the last book in the series. If you want to read more on my thoughts of King’s Cage check out my reviews!
I started to read Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray in April as well, but unfortunately decided to not finish it. I got to page 72 of 501, I just could not get into it. The book was not bad at all I guess I was not in the mood for a Sci-Fi adventure. I will try and read Defy The Stars some other time.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
This book is about triplet queens. Each triplet has different powers Mirabella is an elemental, Katharine is a poisoner, and Arsione is a naturalist. In the kingdom that they live the reigning queen gives birth to triplets and on their sixteenth year the sisters have to try and kill the other two sisters to become the next Queen. The only way to get the crown is to be the last one standing.
“ Three dark Queens are born in a glen, sweet little triples will never be friends Three dark sisters all fair to be seen, two to devour and one to be Queen”
If that does not make you want to read the book…I do not know what will.
Avenged by Amy Tintera
This is the second book in the Ruined series. I absolutely loved Ruined I finished it in three days so I can not wait to finally read what happens next. Ruined was filled with action from start to finish and it just blew me away. If you want to read more about my thoughts on Ruined check out my reviews.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling
Yup, that is right I will be continuing reading the Harry Potter series in May. I have watched all the movies so I am excited to read this book. I love the scene where Ron and Harry drive the car so I can not wait to actually be able to read that scene I am sure it is even greater in the book.
That is all everyone. That is what I read in April and what I plan to read in May. Hope you enjoyed this post. Also, let me know what you are planning on reading in May!
Until next time book nerds,
