April Wrap-Up 2018

I HAVE FINALLY KILLED THE READING SLUMP THAT HAS PLAGUED ME FOR MONTHS. And I did it in a fantastic way. I read 11 books last month!

Yes, you read that correctly. ELEVEN. BOOKS.

Granted, a couple were audiobooks & four were poetry collections that didn’t take long tear through, but STILL!!

So here we go, the run-down of the books that helped me break out of the most immense slump in my life. Complete with a one sentence mini review & star rating.
(Click on the title of each to go to its GoodReads page!!)

Thank you, books. I have missed you so fucking much.


  • Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
     5/5 Stars ~ Damn it AIDAN
  • Obsidio by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
    5/5 Stars ~ DAMN IT AIDAN
  • I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara
    Originally 3.5/5 Stars but recently upped to 4/5 because I am 10000000% sure that this book, her work, helped catch the Golden State Killer (suspected, though 100% DNA match) on April 25th of this year.

    You did it, Michelle. You all fucking did it.

Poetry Collections

Books Finished in April (not started)

  • The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin
    3/5 Stars ~ An amazingly written fantasy novel that, unfortunately, left me more than a little confused so I’m not sure if I’ll continue the series or not.
  • My Sweet Audrina by V. C. Andrews
    2/5 Stars ~ AKA the book that did NOT age well at ALL & I still can’t believe I even finished.

Books Fully Read in April

  • Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
    4/5 Stars ~ Could this book be ANY CUTER
  • The Empress by S. J. Kincaid
    4/5 Stars ~ I will punch EVERYONE in the face for all the shit they put my Nemesis through.

Finally! The slump has been killed & I am free from its oppressive force!
I have been so stressed out about it, I wasn’t sure I’d ever read properly again.
I don’t expect to do the same during May, but let’s hope I don’t go into book burnout again.

My little bookish heart can’t take it!
