April Wrap Up

I wish I could say that April whizzed by, but it didn’t. May promises to be a stressful month with all of my exams and uni deadlines crammed into a matter of weeks, but I have plans to read some excellent books to keep me going.


  • How To Be Both - Ali Smith ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Eichmann in Jerusalem - Hannah Arendt ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Glorious Heresies - Lisa McInerney ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • The Power - Naomi Alderman ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • I See You - Clare Mackintosh ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Behind Her Eyes - Sarah Pinborough ⭐⭐
  • American Gods - Neil Gaiman ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I read some really good books this month but the ones that have stood out for me especially are How To Be Both, Eichmann in Jerusalem, I See You, and American Gods.

Book Haul

  • Postnazismus und Popul√§rkultur - Jalena Jezo (it’s a book for uni, so it doesn’t really count)
  • Shelter - Jung Yun
  • The Museum of You - Carys Bray
  • I See You - Clare Mackintosh
  • Behind Her Eyes - Sarah Pinborough
  • Stay With Me - Ayobami Adebayo (a giveaway prize)
  • A Darker Shade of Magic - V. E. Schwab
  • A Gathering of Shadows - V. E. Schwab
  • A Conjuring of Light - V. E. Schwab

The photo above is what I thought was going to be the entirety of my April book haul...but! Of the other books I bought, I’ve already read 4 of them, meaning my TBR hasn’t grown that much. Or so I’ll keep telling myself.

Personal Update

  • Such stress.
