April Books Recap1:22 PM
Now April has ended...I'm in the final stretch of senior year (in high school). It will be a relief when school's done and I can focus on getting ready for college. I've chosen which college I'm going to by the way. :) And I'm going to stay in the dorms, so you can expect some "a day in the life" posts.
But the purpose of this post is to tell you all about
the twenty books few books I read. I didn't read a crazy amount. It was really quite pitiful, but I am happy that I didn't read less than last month.
How many books did I read in April?
Eight. And it is the same amount as I read in March considering I counted a book I DNF'd in March (sorry). 6 YA novels and 2 adult.
Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay. I was mindblown and hungover after I read it. Just. Urngh. FEELS. The premise was so unique, as a paranormal Romeo & Juliet (sort of) re-telling. Except it's not. It's extremely one-of-a-kind and I loved Juliet. Romeo was the most confusing and well-written villains of all time. And the ending was perfect.
Probably The Captive Maiden. It wasn't a bad book at all, just the one I didn't like as much as the rest (I gave it three stars). It was cute and the setting was neat, but I didn't connect to the characters that much and for me that's a big thing.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. Oh my gosh. Let me tell you, I borrowed it from the library and it was hardcover and beautiful and shiny.
Least favorite cover(s)?
I'm not too crazy about the Fisher of Men cover. The quality isn't the best in my opinion.
439 pages (The Dream Thieves)
Bonus Question: Who was my favorite male character?
James Easton from A Spy in the House. You want proof? I remembered his full name without checking the book. That means a lot. ;) His dry sense of humor and sarcasm really added to the book. I mean, he could be annoying but I think he used that to hide his nicer side.
- Submitting my first two "official" reviews as a real-life reviewer. Eeek.
- Buying my own copy of The Help (receiving it, by the way, from Thriftbooks.com in four days. This makes me happy.)
- Joining Amber @The Mile Long Bookshelf and her Blog Notes Project.
- Signing up to be a part of a blog tour for a NA book sometime in June. *jumps up and down*
- Actually receiving the signed and personalized copy of Something Strange and Deadly in the mail.
- Fangirling like crazy when SUSAN DENNARD replied to my very happy tweet!
- Freaking out because sociology finals are next week.
- Discovering some great book vloggers (is that the right term?). We are such a hilarious group us bookworms.
On another note, I'm working on a post that denounces all bookworm cliches. Do you know of any bookworm cliches (things that non-bookworms think all bookworms do or are) that bother you like crazy? I'll add them to my list if you comment on this post or tweet something with #bookwormcliches at the end.
Please participate, guys! It'll be SO fun!
