April Wrap Up and May TBR

It’s wrap up time! And I have to say that I’m pretty proud of my reading this year. This month I read a total of eleven books. Which seems insane but I’m so glad that I got through so many books. Some were for school but overall most of them were just for fun.  This also brings my reading total up to 45 for the year. Which seems pretty amazing to me. Anyways, let’s get started!

Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick

512exl5+BEL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_What I loved about this book was that it talked about some heavy subjects that aren’t often talked about. But I feel like some of them may not have been fleshed out as much as they should have.

3/5 stars

Tur: The Elsker Saga by S.T. Bende

Fallen by Lauren Kate

fallenThis book was one that I could barely finish. It was horrible and something I would never recommend because it had problematic themes and issues within it.

And that’s all the books that I read in April. I also read two other books but they were for school so I don’t have any reviews for them.
