I know everybody says this in their own way, but I literally couldn’t believe it was time already to recap what I read in April! I’m not sure if it’s because there’s a million things happening or what, but time is flying. Anyone else? Gosh.
But, anyway! I’m still going through ebbs and flows when it comes to books and reading in general, but last month’s reads had zero problem holding my attention.
THE INVITATION by Vi Keeland
My rating and review: 3.5 stars. I should’ve written my review right away, but I didn’t so now I don’t really remember much. But, overall this was cute! Lots of chemistry between the two main characters, but not over-the-top. Honestly, my favorite part of the whole thing was Stella’s job! The ending before the epilogue was a little meh, but considering the genre of book my expectations weren’t too high.
OUR DARKEST NIGHT by Jennifer Robson
My rating and review: 4 stars. I really enjoyed this! As far as historical fiction/WWII books go, this was a good balance of being emotional, heavy, inspiring and even uplifting at times. I loved every single character – everyone felt so real, which is a testament to how well written the story was.
THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LaRUE by V.E. Schwab
My rating and review: 5 stars. This. Book. Is. Everything. Gosh. I don’t even know what to say about it other than I loved it so much and think about it often. Get it, read it, and cherish it.
THE SOULMATE EQUATION by Christina Lauren | *ARC received from NetGalley, releases May 18!
My rating and review: 4 stars. I’m always anxious for the latest release from these ladies, and this didn’t disappoint! It was a fun, cute, fast-paced read – exactly what I’ve come to expect and (usually) love from this author duo. I enjoyed the unique concept of the story. Especially from the perspective of science bringing two adults together, but ultimately they make the decision to be and stay together. Some of the scientific jargon got to be a little much at times, but it’s easy enough to skim over.
