Hey y’all! I’m back with another post for Post A Day May! April was an interesting reading month for me. I would have spurts where it was all I wanted to do and then I would go days without picking up a book. It’s okay because I still managed to finish 14 books for the month. Here are all of the books I completed in the month of April, if there is a full review I will link it on the list:
- The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black (review)
- Lucky In Love by Kasie West
- The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo (review)
- Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway (review)
- Dear Martin by Nic Stone
- Shadow and Bone (Grishaverse #1) by Leigh Bardugo
- Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (series review)
- Elmet by Fiona Mozley
- The Demon King (Seven Realms #1) by Cinda Williams Chima
- Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson
- The Door in the Alley (The Explorers #1) by Adrienne Kress
- Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children #3) by Seanan McGuire
- The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan
- Waking Gods (Themis Files #2) by Sylvain Neuval
Out of all of these my favorites was definitely Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway and Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson. I have already talked about Emmy & Oliver in a review which is linked above. This was exactly the kind of contemporary I didn’t know I was craving. It was a YA contemporary with a little bit of a heavier topic. It’s well written and I absolutely cared for the characters with all of my heart.
Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson is a thriller that I touched on in this week’s wrapup (linked here). It follows Kate who does an apartment swap with her cousin and on the day she moves in her neighbor is found dead in their apartment. This book had me on the edge of my sleep and yelling “NO WAY” as I was listening to it on audio. It was intriguing and fast paced and it kept you guessing the whole time. I see why Peter Swanson is a lot of people’s favorite thriller writers. This was just the break I needed from all of the heavy fantasy and sci-fi I was reading.
