Hallo meine Lieben💞
Ich hoffe, ihr alle habt einen schönen Freitag gehabt!
Welches Buch hat euch im April am Besten gefallen?
Etwas verspätet seht ihr heute meinen Lesemonat April, bzw. einen Teil der Bücher, die ich gelesen habe😅.
Ich habe insgesamt 17 Bücher gelesen, davon am Besten gefallen haben mir
📖Warcross von Marie Lu.
📖The Woman In The Window von A.J. Finn.
📖A Girl Like That von Tanaz Bhathena.
Habt eine schönen Abend❤️.
I hope everybody had a great friday😊.
Which book was your favourite April read?
I know I'm a little bit late but I still wanted to share my April wrap up with you guys!😊
I was able to read 17 books (some of them are pictured above) which I'm super happy about!
My favourite books of the month were
📖The Woman In The Window
📖A Girl Like That
Take care bookworms💞.
How are you guys today? I hope your all good and are having a more wonderful day then me🙂. I was just walking around the house in a daze of confusion and disbelief because “The Burning Maze” ruined me. You’d think because it was such a PG series it would be filled with rainbow and unicorns🦄✨. But nooooo Rick Riordan had to break my heart. But we’ll get to that in a sec. I haven’t done anything totally awe inspiring today, but I did find more books to read! I just wanted to share that because while other people can’t seem to get rid of their TBR, I can’t seem to have one😂
So let’s talk about “The Burning Maze”. Apollo, of course, was hilarious in his mortal patheticness and self pity😜. His complaining over his physical appearance and his instinct to cower from danger did it help his cause. A lot of new characters were introduced in this book. Such as dryads who reminded me of Amazons, and emperors with boats full of shoes, food, and big fussy pandas (I’d like a panda, please and thank you). Old characters were also reintroduced such as Grover, Piper, and Jason!😊 I don’t want to spoil the most deadly plot of the book but I will say one of those characters will most probably die🙃 (that’s why I was walking around confused in my house). And like I said before, you’d think this book would be full of fun and games but no, just simple death and destruction😐. Even though there is a lot of death, Apollo had a way of making me laugh when he was crying, and trust me, he was always crying. I loved how Rick Riordan used the reality’s of our world and spun them into his stories of gods and heroes. It was absolute terrific❤️.
I hope you guys love this book as much a I did, and I’ll see you guys on Saturday!📚✨
Wonderfully wild! Repost from @amyinreverie using @RepostRegramApp - Happy Fri-Yay everyone! I still have to work tomorrow but I appreciate everyone might be excited!
So Wicked Like a Wildfire was a weird one for me. I went in blind and didn’t realise it was part of a duology, which explained the pacing issue for me! I ADORE the cover though! The second part, Fierce Like a Firestorm, is released in October, and the cover is just as stunning as this one (in fact I think I might love it even more)
What stunning covers do you love? There are personally to many to list but Roar and Wild Beauty are a few that come to mind!

Book photography is elevated to art. I love following creative people like @xenatine - isn’t this image so cool?!? I’m an admirer for sure 📚💕💕💕 ・・・
Via the fabulous @xenatine ⤵️ We went to see Avengers Infinity War tonight and I’m just....😱🤐 Have you seen it or are you planning to see it?
SLEEPING BEAUTY MEETS FIREFLY in this fast-paced and addictive new Sci-Fi by USA Today bestselling authors Audrey Grey and Krystal Wade!
While she sleeps, the whole universe changes.
Princess Talia Starchaser has it all. Wealth. Status. Adoring citizens. But on the eve of her eighteenth birthday, she’s forced to publicly betray her best friend, a companion mock she’s had since birth, setting events into motion that lead to the destruction of the humans, and the princess floating through space, a remnant of a time when humans ruled over droids.
One hundred years later, half-mock captain Will Perrault and his ragtag crew discover a device floating in space. When a very human Talia emerges from its depths, Will suspects she’s the key to buying his way back into the regiment he once commanded against the last remaining rebel humans—and the ruling mock queen’s good graces.
Both Talia and Will would rather get space-tossed than trust one another, but with the queen’s forces chasing them across the galaxy and the fate of both worlds hanging in the balance, they’ll forge the unlikeliest of alliances to survive.

Happy May everyone! So my TBR posts always have a ton of books. And to be honest I read a handful of them but a lot of times I end up going off course and picking up something else. This is partly because new books come out and I get super pumped and cant wait. But it's also because I see books you all are reading and I have to try them! :) Last month I read:
There's someone inside your house by @naturallystephperkins I really loved this book and I can not wait to see what Netflix does with it.
Dumplin by @andimjulie this was a bit of an underdog read for me. I did not expect to love it as much as I did but I'm throughly looking forward to Puddin and the movie.
Traffick by @ellenhopkinsauthor, I've been a long time Ellen Hopkins fan and had the extreme pleasure of getting to meet her and work with her at some book festivals in the past and I loved this book.
Stalking Jack the Ripper by @kerrimaniscalco, I listened to this book and it took me a little but admittedly I like many others am now in the Audrey Rose fan club!
Illuminae by @misterkristoff and @amiekaufmanauthor, this was my second time trying to read this book. The first time I got about 20 pages in and gave up and I feel so dumb! I loved it. I actually ordered all of them last night. P.S. check out my goodreads for the review coming today.
The final six by @alexandramonir, this was another book I listened to. It was alright and I do not know if I will check out the sequel but definitely give it a try if you haven't.
That is all I finished in April all of those reviews are on my goodreads and I hope you have a wonderful May.
Love this pic AND this review!! It’s always a relief when my book lives up to the expectations of someone who was really excited to read it! #Repost @morrighanrose with @get_repost
I just finished reading Beyond a Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake @jessleake and I LOVED it! I have to give this book ALL the stars. The way that the story wove Celtic and Norse mythology together was fantastic; the world of 11th century Ireland is all that I can think about while adulting today. In all honesty, that is the way I differentiate a good book from an amazing book. The amazing ones stick with you, and you find yourself throughout the day dreaming of a different world. The lush rolling hills and the fantastical mythological monsters, not to mention the characters that the reader meets along the adventure. I loved Leif! He was full of cockiness and sass, my two favorite traits in a book boyfriend. Ciara was a badass fierce female warrior, and her growth throughout the story was satisfying to witness. I loved everything about Beyond and I hope there are more adventures in this world in the future!

Hellooo everyone! It’s been a bit since I’ve posted. Before I forget, I’m just going to say now that I’m going to be a bit busy during the beginning of May, so I’ll probably be posting more intermittently! But don’t worry. you’ll see me still pop up once in a while!
-A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas-
Okay guys. Tomorrow is the release of ACOFAS, and how excited are you? I didn’t order my copy yet (since I’m on a book buying ban and I’m waiting until I at least finish ACOWAR), but I’m still in love with that cover! That said, I am making plans to read ACOMAF this month, so hopefully I’ll be able to read it and enjoy all it’s gloriousness! Also, the page I’m flipped to is the first page we ever meet Rhysand, and I still love it to bits!
Night | Stars: So it’s the last day of this challenge, so of course I had to go with this amazing quote!
So, this month I actually read a good amount considering all the work I also had to do! Here’s the books I read:
• Cress by Marissa Meyer
• Winter by Marissa Meyer
• To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
• Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett
I would say my favorite was either Winter or To Kill a Kingdom! Both were so good!
I’m going to do a super quick tag! I was tagged by the lovely @pagesenchanted to do the #top3fandomsmerch tag!
📚 All of Marie Lu’s books
All right, have a lovely day everyone! I’ll see you all in May!
Hello, lovely bookworms! We’re ending another month, and I hope it was good to you. If not, I hope May is even better! I finished another book today, which means I finished five books during the month of April. I’m okay with the amount of books I read, but to be honest I didn’t love any of the books I read. I enjoyed them, but I wouldn’t say there are some of my favorites. However, I did love a K-drama: Strong Girl Bong Soon. You guys, this was sooo awesome! It kind of reminds me of The Hating Game. I recommend it if you like rom-coms, superheroes, and crime solving tv shows. Yes, there is a love triangle. However, it was very well done in my opinion. I don’t recommend it if you don’t like slow burn relationships. You can watch it on Netflix. 🤗 Anyway, here is this month’s wrap up:
-This Song Will Save Your Life: 3.5 🌟
-Clockwork Angel (rr): 4.5 🌟
-We’ll Always Have Summer: 2.5 🌟
-ADSOM: 4 🌟
-Revelations(rr): 2 🌟

#aprilinbooks18 : April Haul & Wrap Up
Finishing up April having only read one book, The Ganga Shift (full review below)! Wasn't a great reading month for me but I've been so busy that I don't really mind and I can hopefully catch up on my reading challenge during the summer. How many books did you read in April?
While reading, I was surprised with an easy-to-digest book more focused on hunting each other (kind of giving me Hunger Games vibes) than a prison story that I was initially expecting.
My favourite part of this book by far was the characters. I enjoyed how they all felt unique both from each other and from characters in other books. From the stubborn Isabella to the secretly caring Shannon to the mysterious Chase, everyone contrasted each other and added to the story. However, I did find the romances with Isabella to feel very superficial and it seemed to move too fast without any real basis.
I think one of the things that I didn't enjoy about this book is that it never felt suspenseful and I didn't really feel compelled to keep reading until the very end. This may just be me, though, and the fact that, in general, I find it hard to get swept away by thriller novels.
While I enjoyed the addition of multiculturalism through talking about various aspects of Hinduism and making the main character East Asian, some of the ways that Isabella was talked about made me feel really uncomfortable and borderline exotic fetish-y (especially the Amazon blurb). Overall, though, I still enjoyed reading this book and I am sure that fans of thrillers/suspense/survival novels would enjoy it much more than I did. .

Before Google archived the web and made everything searchable there was the 3″ x 5″ index card used to classify “every known animal, plant, and mineral in the world.” By the 19th century, libraries used index cards as the standard way to store books. “It’s amazing how much the information revolution we’re still living in can be traced back to a simple 3″ x 5″ piece of card stock.”

🌧️April Wrap Up🌧️
Orphan, Monster, Spy: 4.5⭐ This book was my first historical read and I loved it 😊 I hope there will be a second book but it would be perfectly fine as a stand alone
Gone Rogue: 4.5⭐ loved this final installment in the Wires and Nerves graphic novels
The Nowhere Girls: 4⭐ really enjoyed how there was all these points of views and making it feel like there wasn't just one main character
The Traitor's Game: ?⭐ I liked it a lot but I'm not sure what to rate it because enjoyed it and would read the sequel but I wasn't in love with it 😌
To Kill a Kingdom: 4⭐ I read this all in one sitting and I was hella tired at work that morning 😁
Daughter of the Siren Queen: 4.9⭐ This came so close to being five star but something was missing, I think it went a little too fast
The Bone Witch: 4⭐ If you loved the Grisha trilogy then you'll really enjoy this book 😁 The Bone Witch has similar vibes to it and it's pretty good. I liked the sibiling relationship but wish there was a little more to it
The bottom set of books is what I got off of bookoutlet 😅 it seems my package came a day earlier 😁 which makes me happy but I saw that The Keeper of the Mist is a library binding (I think that's what it's called) and on the site it said Hardcover 😌 I'll read it anyway and probably take it to my used bookstore when I unhaul some of my books around June or July
Challenge Day 30: Wrap up 📘🌷🌞 #allthebooksapril
I can’t believe how fast this month has gone by! Waiting for spring to warm up and bloom. This challenge was a lot of fun for Mackenzie, Andrea and I. Ended it with a beautiful day at the #tulipfestival and a good book! -Meaghan🐝
#allthebooksapril Day 30 :: April Wrap Up⠀
Considering that I hauled 11 books this month I'd say my reading month was pretty good - definitely larger than average. I read 6 books and a total of 1,894 pages, wahoo! Here's hoping May is just as good. ⠀
What was your favorite April read??⠀
Happy #mapmonday ! I started off my day with a bit of Sherlock Holmes because I’m really obsessed with that show😍. I’ve also been reading the book “Ash Princess” which I’ll be reviewing today😊. I also ordered “The Burning Maze” which I’m so excited to read on Wednesday😁 I haven’t done much today so this will be a short post but I hope you enjoy my review and have a wonderful day!
“Ash Princess” was full of cruelty, betrayal, and broken souls and I absolute loved it❤️. In the beginning of the book, Theo seemed like a maiden in distress, wanting a prince to save her from the evil clutches of the Kaiser. And when someone offered to save her, she refused. Through the book, Theo developed from a frightened girl to a queen who doesn’t flinch from pain. I admired Theo even when she was ready to weep in her bed instead of standing her ground💖 The only part that I didn’t like about the book was the love triangle. They’re always frustrating to watch and even though this one wasn’t so bad it’s just really hard to find out who you want Theo to end up with😂. I loved how the author unraveled layer after layer of characters and still left enough mysteries for the book after and I cannot wait to read the sequel!😉
I hoe everyone enjoys “Ash Princess” as much as I do and I’ll see you guys in two days📚✨
It’s the last day of April! Today I shared my April Wrap Up over on the blog and you can read that post via the link in my bio. 👆🏼 While I only read six books this month, two of them were over 500 pages, so I’m considering this a major win! 🙌🏼 What books did you read this April?
