Monthly wrap-ups

April 2021 wrap-up


My wrap up for April



I managed to get through a cool 18 books this month, although 5 of them were audiobooks 😁  I found myself reading a fair few more adult and thriller books this month – I’m not feeling fantasy and YA as much as usual at the moment.  Now that I’ve had a look through my ratings this month, it appears I was throwing 5 star reviews around like confetti, so the change of scene must have done me some good 😄

My favourites for this month were:

Finlay Donovan is Killing It:  I started following a few more ‘thriller/adult’ accounts on bookstagram and saw this one everywhere, so decided to give it a try.  It was an absolutely fantastic contemporary thriller with a brilliant MC!

The Emporium of Imagination: The most beautiful, magical book, dealing with grief I have ever read. Heartbreaking, funny and thought provoking, I’m recommending this one to everyone!

The Secret Library (Magian #2):  This is SUCH a fun and adventurous series with some fantastic   banter.  I get Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean vibes with this one!

My Calamity Jane:  I’ve loved all the Jane books so far and this one was no exception!  An awesome wild west adventure this time that continued to be just as entertaining as all the other books!

The House in the Cerulean Sea:  This one was just beautiful.  A lyrical heartwarming story full of magic and found families.  

Rising (The Relic Trilogy #3):   If you haven’t started the Relic series yet, you’re missing out!  This is one of the most underrated YA fantasy stories out there and this conclusion was perfect.

The One:  Although this one has been out for quite a while, I hadn’t heard of it until I saw another bookstagrammer talking about it.  I LOVE Black Mirror and John Marrs books give me that vibe (now that I’m obsessively devouring all of them 😂)

Fragile Remedy:  A brilliant dystopian book with a gang of unlikely friends I fell in love with!

Passengers:  Another John Marrs book I listened to on audio and absolutely loved.  Moral dilemma books are the best!

Illusionary (Hollow Crown #2):  The conclusion to the Incendiary series, this one was full of action, romance and betrayal.  I’ve absolutely loved this duology and highly recommend it!

The One Hundred Years of Lenni & Margot:  One of my real favourites this month!  This book about a 17 year old girl and an 83 year old woman, both terminally ill, is just perfection. Funny, heartwarming and heartbreaking, I did not want to put this one down. 

Spring Clean for the Peach Queen: An incredible Aussie book!  A girl, fleeing her insta-famous life gone wrong, is determined to declutter her life of all the fake, social media rubbish that has landed her in hot water.  


As usual, clicking on the pics below will take you to my reviews (Some reviews may not be live on my blog yet as I post them on the book’s release date due to publisher’s requests, so keep your eye on my blog for those reviews in May)  🙂

Let me know in the comments what your favourite read was for April!
