I read a total of 13 books in April. One of which I’d started last month and one I didn’t finish because it was terrible. You might notice a lot of 4-stars reviews. It was just that kind of month, I guess. I’m gonna arrange by rating (highest to lowest). So here go…
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
This book gets a lot of hype. And it isn’t for nothing.
This book was dark and ugly. The characters are very well-developed and the pace is heart-stopping. The writing is great and so is the story and the world. I am beyond excited for the second book.
This was the second and final book of The Wrath and the Dawn duology and it was a great read.
I was afraid the end might be a let down (as it often is with series’) but it so wasn’t. I was very happy with the characters, the beautiful writing and the amazing story. I highly recommend both the book and the series.
This was a very refreshing read. So different from most of the stuff you read in the YA genre. The world was very interesting and I loved the characters.
And it’s a standalone. The other books in the series follow different characters. What more could you ask for?
I read this book on a whim. I’m immensely happy about that whim.
This book was not at all what I thought it would be but I really liked how it turned out. The characters were smart and likable and the story was interesting. I wanted to reread it the moment I finished it.
The fourth and concluding novel of The Raven Cycle quartet.
I was so terrified going into this because my favourite character was going to die. And I didn’t want to disappointed either. I was very happy with what I got.
These two authors make a great team. This was a well written and highly entertaining novel. The story was great and so was the romance. The characters were likable – well, Sean was a dick in the beginning, but he was supposed to be. He was redeemed very well. Great read.
This is the third novel of The Raven Cycle quartet.
This is a very unique and entertaining series with very engaging characters. Characters which shone through well in this book. This was the first time I began to actually like Adam. This was a good book.
This was a very interesting read, mainly due to the world that was described. I liked the characters and while the POV changes I found troublesome in the beginning, they were fine in the end. The romance part seemed a bit out-of-place but overall, I really liked the book.
A beautifully written book, in my opinion, with noticeable character development and no love-triangle, even thought it could have been so easy to create one. Other than the fact that it was a bit slow-paced, it was a great read. And the ending was really good.
Took me some time to get into this book, but when I did, I flew through it. The protagonist was great and I loved him and connected very well with him. The other characters weren’t as investing but they were okay. I liked the ending a lot and I found the book to be, overall, quite interesting.
As someone who isn’t a fan of the author, I surprisingly enjoyed this book. It was entertaining and I liked the story as well as the characters. There were issues, like the romance was a bit fast, there were a lot of description I didn’t care for and the world building was lacking. But it was still a fairly good read and I’m interesting in the next standalone of the series.
Not the author’s best work. The writing was okay and I found the female protagonist to be a bit of an asshole. But I liked the dynamic between the two protagonists and the importance given to family, friends and music. The ending felt convenient but the male protagonist was pretty cool. It was an okay read.
I almost never give 1 star because if I can even find one good thing, I give credit for it. With this one, I hated everything. The writing, the protagonist, the story… everything. It made no sense! All I can say about this one is… don’t read it.
