April Reading Wrap-Up

Hi Blisses,

I read 21 books last month, which isn’t surprising because we’re still stuck at home. Hopefully, our quarantine ends in May 15 but I’m not keeping my hopes high. Anyway, I’ve read quite a number of great books last month. Sure, I only had one 5-star read but I had lots of 4 and 4.5-star reads. I also didn’t have any DNF so that’s great.

The bad news is I didn’t review most of my reads. I felt lazy. I wanted to just read and read and read. By the way, the past two days, I had a 48-hour readathon and I finished the whole Diviners series. That’s 4 books, you guys. So it’s only April 6th, but I already read 8 books. But that’s for another wrap-up post, let me now share the books I read last month.


1.) Archenemies by Marissa Meyer
2.) Supernova by Marissa Meyer
3.) Boss Man Bridegroom by Meghan Quinn (My REVIEW)
4.) Luna and the Lie by Mariana Zapata

7.) Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman (My REVIEW)

      Thank you, Stephen. The Scythe series is amazing and the first book is my favorite. If you’ve ever read the series, I’d love to know what you think of the direction that the whole series took. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Also, I won’t review The Ten Thousand Doors of January yet, because I want reread it using a physical book (I only read it on my kindle) I just want to annotate it and then review it.

      Thank you. πŸ™‚ Luna and the Lie is OK. For me, it’s not her best work. If I Never Met You is a surprise. I wasn’t expecting to like it so much because the beginning is a bit serious, much serious than the second half of the book. Hope you like it.

      And I reviewed every book in the Scythe trilogy and I encourage you not to read them because of possible spoilers. hehe.

    β€œI didn’t review most of my reads. I felt lazy. I wanted to just read and read and read.” OMG this was also me in April! I’m SO behind on reviews but I had a blast reading so no regrets. In April, my 5-star romance read was Girl Gone Viral. It’s a sweet bodyguard romance with lots of pining, and it tackles issues like PTSD and mental health. I don’t know if you’ve read it, but I really loved that one.
