April Wrap Up || One Sentence Reviews


Remember to stay up to date with the world, listen to those facing atrocities and help spread awareness/donate where youโ€™re able to.

For April, I thought I would do something a little different and instead of full reviews, I’m doing this flash style with one sentence reviews.

I read way more than expected in April, and overall I had a really good reading month โ™ฅ

All the titles are linked to their Goodreads page, so you can check out their synopsis if you aren’t familiar with the plots!

Wolfsong; T.J. Klune

rating: โญโญโญ.5

Fast paced and interesting narrative style, but so many men made frustrating decisions.


A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting; Sophie Irwin

rating: โญโญโญ

An easy, fun read, but not enough focus on the progression of Kitty and Radcliffe’s romantic relationship.


The Anthropocene Reviewed; John Green

rating: โญโญโญโญ

Heartwarming, funny, interesting and would love more like this from John Green โ™ฅ


The Wolf and the Woodsman; Ava Reid

rating: โญโญโญโญ

A gritty fairytale, with body horror magic, that grips you with the hate to love romance, but lacked in the development of court politics and should have been longer!


Her Dark Wings; Melinda Salisbury

rating: โญโญโญ.5

A Hades and Persephone retelling with some great characters from Greek mythology – kind of vapid in places, but I ate this up so quickly!

The Undiscovered Deaths of Grace McGill; C.S Robertson

rating: โญโญโญ.5

The initial mystery was a fantastic way to set up such an unhinged twist! (p.s. there were times when you can tell this female character was written by a man).


The Devil in Winter; Lisa Kleypas

rating: โญโญโญโญโญ

Evie – my favourite Wallflower – takes the reigns of her own life and proposes a marriage of convenience to a well known rogue, who promptly comes to adore her โ™ฅ


Women Who Read Are Dangerous; Stefan Bollmann, Karen Joy Fowler (Foreword)

An interesting look at the history of women’s roles in art and the politics of reading within a beautiful book.


Vincent Van Gogh: A Life in Letters; Nienke Bakker, Leo Jansen, Hans Luijten

rating: โญโญโญโญ.5

Vincent Van Gogh was a passionate man with flaws that he wore on his sleeves – such a wonderful collection of letters, but I wish some of Theo’s were included.


Hell Breaks Loose; Derek Landy

rating: โญโญโญ

Was initially mad that this was marketed as a Dead Man prequel when it isn’t, but Valkyrie didn’t annoy me as much as I thought so actually had a pretty good time.

What did you read in April? Let me know in the comments!

Thank you for reading!

I hope youโ€™re having a lovely day and staying safe โ™ฅ
