April Wrap Up & May TBR!

Hey my lovelies, and welcome to another monthly wrap up and tbr. Sadly, I only actually completed one of the seven books of my April tbr, as my plan was to read the Harry Potter series, however I only actually read the first book, but none the less I still read a grand total of 4 books and 3 novella's. So this month I have picked a relatively small tbr this time.
The first book I read this month was the one book I completed of my tbr and that was ... Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J K Rowling, to be honest I'm not really sure what I thought about this as I found myself comparing it to the movie the entire time and I really do wish that I had read the books when I was younger before watching the films.

The first novella I read was The Proposal by Meg Cabot, now this was a book I enjoyed. It was so nice to meet back up with Suze and Jesse, although I did find myself forgetting who certain characters were, so I definitely see a reread in my future. Click here for the full review.

The second novella I read was Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell, after not necessarily going through a reading slump, but not feeling any inclination to read, I decided to pick this up, which if you didn't already know was one of 2016's World book day books. So how could I not read it? You can find the full review of it here.

The second novel I read this month was Memories of a Mad Man by Don Spector, I received this as part of a book tour, in exchange for a honest review. I definitely enjoyed this one and the review will be posted on the 9th May.

The third novella I read was Queen Song by Victoria Aveyard, I pre-ordered Cruel Crown months a go and was so excited to receive it in the post this morning, as I was waiting to read Glass Sword until I had received this. However I did find I couldn't remember most of the characters names and will probably have to read Red Queen again before Glass Sword. My tbr pile is just getting bigger and bigger.

The third book I read was Sugar Baby Beautiful by J. J Mcavoy, I read this as I had read some of her other books in the past and figured I would give this one ago, and although I did appreciate one of the endings plot twist, the fact that they took away the plot twist kind off ruined it for me. Sugar Baby Beautiful is about a young girl called Felicity who gets pushed into the world of sugar babys by her friends, where she meets billionaire Theodore Darcy. Yep, I bet you can guess exactly where this is going.

The fourth book I read this month was Hate List by Jennifer Brown, I have owned this book for around a year now so when I was doing a bit of reorganizing I thought that I would give it ago. Hate List is about a teenager called who one morning her boyfriend went into school and shot all of their bullies and some other people. This book deals with both her guilt, how other people view her and it also shows flashbacks to what actually happened that morning. This book was so good and it was everything I wanted it to be for such a hard hitting book. My full review for this is scheduled to be posted on 7th May.

As I haven't had much look with predicting which series I will read, I have decided to pick only standalone's or a single books in a series which I haven't read yet.

The first novel I plan to read is Verge by Rebecca Bradford, I received this in April on a read for review basis thanks to its publishing company, Austin Macauley. So I shall be reading this and hopefully posting a review for it soon. Verge is about a teenager who is thrust into a world she thought only belonged in fantasy books. That sounds really good to me, so I shall be getting onto that.

The second book I plan to read is Soundless by Richelle Mead, I received this as a Christmas present and have heard quite a range of reviews on it, however due to me enjoying the Vampire Academy series so much I shall definitely be giving it ago.

The third book and final book I plan to read is Half Lost by Sally Green, this is the final book in the Half Bad trilogy with the final book coming out in March, I practically ran to Waterstones and was lucky enough to find a signed hardcover there, and have yet to pick it up, so I shall definitely will at some point this month.

Due to me going to Disneyland Paris at the end of the month, I hope to get quite a bit of reading done whilst traveling. So I hope to read about 7 possibly 8 books this month. Thank you for reading, To keep more up to date with what I am reading, you can check out my TwitterGoodreads and Instagram.
