April 2016 Wrap Up

Oh boy, hi, I’ve had a terrible reading month and I blogged very little and am so many books behind my reading challenge and I’ve been so busy with school and life and oh my god AP tests are coming up.

But anyways, here’s what I read this month: (A total of 7 books)

I read Lady Midnight and the Winner’s Kiss!


I loved both of these books so much and gave both a 5 out of 5 stars! You can see my full review for Lady Midnight here, and my full review for a Winner’s Kiss here. The Winner’s Kiss is my favorite book so far this year with Lady Midnight closely behind 🙂

I read Passenger by Alexandra Bracken!

I thought that this book was pretty good, and I gave it a 3.7 out of 5 stars. My full review for Passenger is here.

I also finally read Soundless by Richelle Mead, who wrote Vampire Academy which I loved!

Soundless was a very interesting book, and I totally forgot Richelle Mead wrote while reading because it was very unlike her. I honestly think that Soundless was a step down from Vampire Academy and Bloodlines. I would say that this book was on par with Passenger, so 3.7 stars it is.

I also read Earth’s End by Elisa Kova and the 2nd Wallbanger book


Earth’s end is getting 4.5 stars because it was just so gripping despite the plot problems and character problems. Rusy Nailed is the 2nd book in the Wallbanger series, and I gave Wallbanger 5 stars, but Rusy Nailed wasn’t as good plot wise and I think it dragged on, so only 4 stars, because despite all of that I still really liked it.

I finally read Truthwitch! I succumbed to the hype! ..and was a tad disappointed

Truthwitch was just so damn confusing! I really wanted to like it because of the concept, cover, and the fact that Susan and Sarah J. Maas are BFF’s. But I just was like what? At first I had trouble distinguishing between Safi and Iseult, like who was the threadwitch and who was the truthwitch in the first few chapters, and then the world building was confusing and all of the witches too.

That being said I shipped Safi and Merik from the start, and I kind of ship Iseult and the bloodwitch, is that bad? Is that what’s supposed to happen?

Also, all of these Kings, Princes, Emperor, and Domnas are confusing.

And that is all I read this month.

What did you read? Do we have any books in common? Link me to your April Wrap Ups so I can check them out 😉

Stay awesome Sassenachs!-Calliope Fraser
