Hello guys !
April has been a very stressful, swamped month for me, consequences: I only read 5 books this month which I’m not really impressed with but it doesn’t bother me much, I was adulting haha. A weird thing has been happening since the beginning of this year with the amount I read, it’s decreasing with exactly one book each month. I started the year with 8 books under my belt. It’s all good though, I’ll have plenty of time to read once I’m done with my exams. As usual, the titles are direct links to the Goodreads pages.
Oh yeah, and read until the end, I have an idea I wanted to run by you and see what you think of it.
Onto the books now:
NEVERWHERE – NEIL GAIMAN
This is the most interesting book I’ve ever read in my life. Some kind of twisted, funny, hair pulling urban fantasy. Very unpredictable. And very confusing too. But definitely worth the reading.
Here’s my full review.
He had gone behind the world of metaphor & simile into the place of the things that are, and it was changing him.
SCARLET – MARISSA MEYER
This was a great sequel to Cinder, the series is getting better and better with each book as everyone has said to me and can’t wait to pick up Cress this month. I’m a big fan of these retellings and I think that the world building is on point. You can find out more about it here.
“We met less than a week ago and in that time I’ve done nothing but lie and cheat and betray you. I know. But if you give me a chance…all I want is to protect you. To be near you. For as long as I’m able.”
I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN – JANDY NELSON
OH MY GOD! Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Okay I’ll stop here because this is getting ridiculous, but my love for this book is endless, I don’t know by what sorcery that happened, but it did and it became an all time favorite. Here, check out the review for more raving.
“Meeting your soul mate is like walking into a house you’ve been in before – you will recognize the furniture, the pictures on the wall, the books on the shelves, the contents of drawers: You could find your way around in the dark if you had to.”
CLOCKWORK PRINCE – CASSANDRA CLARE
Remember how I said that I was disappointed with the first book in the trilogy? This sequel made all of that go away. It was amazing and I loved everything about it. The characters, the action, the romance. EVERYTHING. My review for it just went up yesterday.
“We live and breathe words. …. It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt–I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted–and then I realized that truly I just wanted you.”
ARCHER’S VOICE – MIA SHERIDAN
This book is all kinds of dark and tortured but also cute and steamy ! I am very conflicted with how I feel about this book. But it was a quick enjoyable read, even if it was kind of draining. My review for it is coming up next week.
“Try to believe that maybe more light shines out of those who have the most cracks.”

This idea I wanted to have your opinions on. This past week I’ve been thinking about something, a lot of you guys don’t know much about Morocco, if anything at all. So I thought why not do a feature of some sort (monthly maybe) where each time I’ll showcase a city or an area from my beloved country, with maybe a local dish, and local traditions. I don’t know how it’ll be yet, I wanted to see first, if it’ll spark your interest and then think the details through. I’d love to hear you thoughts about it in the comments or even on Twitter if you’d like to chat!
That’s it until next time.
What books did you read in April ?
Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
