Well I don’t know about you, but this past month I literally read books, did home workouts/walked, watched TV & cooked. So I apologize in advance for the longer then normal reading recap, I’m bored okay. Also, I think I might have hit an all time personal record here with the number of books I read in one month, I don’t think i’ve ever been able to hit the double digits.
I got pretty darn ahead on my reading this month, thanks to being cooped on up still, & thank goodness for e-reading library loans. Again, reading is really hard on an iPad still but it’s been something I’ve had to get used to, I think this month I’ll finally invest in a Kobo since I’ve been debating it for a while now & well it seems like it’ll be worth it overall, plus I don’t think those over heat in the sun like an iPad would …… I don’t know, I gotta keep thinking on this one.
So with April coming to an end, here is my April Reading Recap & current TBR list!
2020 Reading Challenge
Where’d You Go Burnadette by Maria Semple
Completed in April:
- Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman
- City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert
- The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
- Would Like to Meet by Rachel Winters
- Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
- The Bride Test by Helen Hoang
- Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey
- Love Her or Leave Her by Tessa Bailey
- Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting
- The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa
- Something in the Water: I don’t even know where to start, this book honestly frustrated the hell out of me more than anything, which sucks because I was so darn excited to read it. Like I don’t even know where to begin, other than the main character had no common sense & it literally just irked me the wrong way. It was a good book just something about it & maybe again her lack of common sense, just stressed me out too much.
- City of Girls: So I wrote a whole things about this & then apparently it didn’t save, so I’m trying my best to remember… I did like this book, I found it really interesting that it was in the form of a letter to someone & basically recapped this older woman’s life & everything that happened along the way. I think it could have been a little shorter but it was definitely interesting!
- The Kiss Quotient: Another day, another predictable rom-com. I guess you might have realized I like loosing myself in these books by now. It was definitely predictable but it was cute. Our main character also was great, I liked how she wasn’t just an odd girl out or anything like we usually get, she was a hard working woman who was autistic, which made things harder for her. The messaging was a breath of fresh air as well, if someone loves you, they’ll love you for you! It was a nice, light & easy read as well! I can’t wait to read the next instalment in the series.
- Would Like to Meet: So this was a cute book, I liked how they brought up all the ‘meet cutes’ from romance movies. It was pretty predictable, which sort of sucked but it was an easy & light read!
- Daisy Jones & The Six: OH MY GOD. So this book was literally amazing & I couldn’t put it down. I don’t even know what else to say other then I loved it & I just loved it.
- The Bride Test: So obviously after reading the first book ‘The Kiss Quotient’ I tackled the second in the series, it was definately not what I expected but it was a good book overall.
- Fix Her Up: So I’ve been wanting to read this for a while, it seemed like a fun read, & boy was it addicting. I literally couldn’t put it down once I started & it was also just a little way to darn cute. Plus it wasn’t as predictable as these books normally are.
- Love Her or Leave Her: Obviously after reading ‘Fix Her Up‘ & not being able to put Tessa Baileys book down, I tackled the second in the series & again like the first book in the series I just couldn’t put it down. There was something about it that literally just kept me going & yes, I tackled it in a mere few hours.
- Good Luck Charm: So this was honestly a super adorable book, I liked how it was about high school sweethearts that broke up & reconnected. The backstory kept it interesting as well! I have really come to like Helena Huntings writing & stories during this time. Also, it was a light & easy read that I literally read in a few hours, she really kept me hooked!
- The Worst Best Man: Uh, where do I begin. I really wasn’t a fan of this book, I wanted to love it but I just couldn’t. To maker matters worse I also just couldn’t get into it & it took me a whole lot longer to get through than I would have wanted.
