As it’s the last Sunday of April, I’ll also double up with a monthly wrap-up.
In my private life
This week has seen me going twice to the office and once being back at 7:45 PM home (while I left at 5:45 AM) because of train problems.
The joy of commuting!
So I am really happy to have a three days weekend!
I already unwound yesterday with new painted edges for Happy Place by Emily Henry!
Afterlight had a special edition but I figured that I could paint my own edges. And here they are!
And as usual I made some reels on Instagram.
One is a parody of very sexy men’s moves, “Manon Blackbeak’s way”.
And the second is a “guess the book” from the opening line. Only two people got it right on Instagram! So let’s see if my fellow bloggers will do better! Drop your guess in the comments today 😉
April Wrap-Up (click on the graphic to read the post)
In April I have read 15 books ! I had amazing reads and surprisingly, also two 2 stars reads (very unusual for me).
Here are this month winners:
The Serpent and the Wings of Night by Carissa Broadbent is very hyped and rightly so! Vampires, deadly competition, underdog for the win and romance!
Gotham meets Strange the Dreamer in City of Nightmares by Rebecca Schaeffer!
If you like wild roadtrips and unprobable intergenerationsl friendship go for The Mostly TRue Story of Tanner and Louise by Colleen Hoakley! I had a blast!
Bootleggers, woman condition and strong heroine for Hang the Moon by Janette Walls. If you love Book of the Month’s selection and historical fiction then, go for it!
And now we come to my two BIG FAVORITES of the month! One I talked about last month but had not posted the review yet.
Maame by Jessica George. It was sad, hopeful, cathartic and absolutely brilliant!
And then Shannon Chakraborty comes with that brilliant, fun, uplifting, epicly adventureous The Adventures of Amina Al-Sirafi. I KNOW this will be on my top read at the end of the year. PLEASE do me a favor and read it! Or event better if you love audiobooks, LISTEN TO IT. You’ll thank me later, promise 😉
That’s it! Thanks for reading!
