April Reading Wrap-up

Another successful reading month! Very ARC heavy but I’m all for it. I love getting the opportunity to read and review books for NetGalley.

I did posts on a lot of these books already if you want to check them out. I finished two series this month: A Question of Holmes by Brittany Cavallaro and The Mermaid’s Voice Returns In This One by Amanda Lovelace, giving both four stars. I think they were excellent endings to really strong collections. In Lovelace’s third installment of the “women are some kind of magic,” she closes out with a collection of pieces by other poets in the community to offer their insight on finding their voice.  In the Charlotte Holmes finale, we finally see Charlotte and Jamie together and figure out what comes next in their lives, together or apart.

I’m getting pretty excited as I start to plan my reading for the next few months—spoiler alert, it’s all summer romances. I’m going to try to read all the Kasie West books I own because she just screams summer romance. I don’t even know if all of her books are even set during the summer, but I don’t really care.

What was your favorite read of the month?

    Putting me to shame with all the reading. Need to start getting back into it properly and catching up! 😂

  2. I really want to read As Kismet Would Have It. I got to meet Sandhya Menon last month and read When Dimple Met Rishi and it was good.
