The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – 5/5 – This was a great way to kick-start my month, and I was so happy that I was able to finish a 5 star book and not end up with a book hangover afterward. This book had been hyped up to the max for me, but the character development in this book was impeccable and the concept was so unique that I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend picking this up if you get a chance. This has been my favourite book of the year so far.
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige – 3/5 – I picked up the Kindle version of this book in order to fulfil the ‘Ancient Runes’ challenge of the OWLs Readathon. This is a retelling of sorts, and pretty obviously by the cover and title, it’s set in the world of The Wizard of Oz. This book was a lot of fun. It had an enjoyable protagonist, a really interesting concept and story, and although it was slightly longer than I would have wanted it to be, it kept me entertained throughout.
Suicide Club by Rachel Heng – 3/5 – This was a beautifully written book. Unfortunately, I started a new job around the same time that I picked this book up, which meant my exhausted brain wasn’t able to enjoy it as much as I think I could have. The concept of the story was fascinating, and I could see this translating easily into a sci-fi movie. This book dropped me into a massive reading slump so I wasn’t able to read as much in April as I would have liked, but hopefully May will be a bit more successful.
