Hey! What an April it has been! We're nearly half way through and we've had possibly every British weather combination we can and largely lacking in sunshine so far! It's been pretty miserable weather on some days but maybe it is just a fantastic excuse to stay at home in the warm and read?
What has been everyone's go to books? Are you reading old comforting favourites to try and seek refuge from the cold? Or are you too busy filling up on the hot new releases in April?
A few that have caught my eye recently:
'Gone Girl' is a book that is definitely a popular one at the moment - everywhere I go I seem to see copies of them, either being advertised/sold or being read. So I felt it was time for me to read it too! A contemporary thriller, 'Gone Girl' explored what happens when Nick Dunne's wife mysteriously disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. What happened to her and is Nick the one to blame?
It is apparently Amazon's 'most wished for' book at the moment. Has anyone read it? What are your views?
Of course I can't let a post about April books without talking about Rachel Vincent's 'With all my Soul'. The 7th and final book in the Soul Screamers series! After a powerful series it has sadly come to an end, but it doesn't disappoint!
What does everyone think? I think it's a definite must read this April, if nothing else!
Another book I can't help but bring up is 'The Fault in Our Stars'. Although it was out earlier this year, it is the perfect YA book to curl up on the sofa out of the rain and snow and read. If you hadn't guessed it already, I am a massive John Green fan and this book is possibly the book of the year for me! Despite being about two teens with cancer it is both uplifting and humourous. John Green knows when to pick the mood up without taking away from the serious undertones. It's an amazing read and I'd recommend it for definite!
Last book I want to mention, again not an April release but seems to be very popular among bloggers and readers alike. 'The Clockwork Princess' by Cassandra Clare, the third and final book in the Infernal Devices trilogy seems to be what everyone is reading and talking about at the moment! Is it worth reading? Having not read the first two, I would be interested to know what you think of them? Should it be bumped up on my April TBR list?
Do you have any other books you want to add to what we should be reading in April? Either new releases or just bestsellers? I always love hearing about what everyone else is reading!
