April Wrap Up
I almost didn't do a wrap up for April but I suddenly felt to motivation to do it and I sped right through. If you guys are interested in seeing what I read and watched and my opinions keep reading!
1. The Savior
I gave this book 5 stars. I'm officially 100% caught up on this series and it's spin-off series and now I have to wait for the next book to come out like everyone else. What a sad predicament I am in. This was an incredibly awesome book by the way. After the last two books, the redemption of this book was needed.
2. Risky Play
I gave this book 4 stars. Rachel Van Dyken was on my list of authors I didn't want to read again because I didn't really like her writing style from what I had read before. My opinion was slightly changed by this book. I actually really enjoyed it and I just might have to read more of her works.
I gave this book 3 stars. Reminiscent of Paper Princess but without all of the brothers and it's a standalone.
4. Boys of Brayshaw High
I gave this book 3 stars. This book was so overhyped. I thought it was going to be the end all be all of darker NA romances and it just wasn't. I loved the main character, she was great, but the story itself and all the other characters just didn't do it for me. I was also very disappointed by the ending. I'm not sure if I even want to read the next book. I probably will just to find out what happened. Overall, very disappointing.
I gave this book 5 stars. Saw the plot twist coming before I even started the book simply from looking at the title and reading the synopsis. It does not take a genius to put it together. However, I still loved the book. It was tender and sad and romantic. I have nothing bad to say about it.
I gave this book 5 stars. Dark, taboo, and sexy. Exactly what I love from NA novels.
I gave this book 3.5 stars. It was almost like I was reading about a completely different couple from the first book. I can't go into detail but this book was so cookie cutter compared to the first book.
I gave this book 3.5 stars. Yikes. This is not a book for the faint of heart. That's all I'm going to say.
9. Twisted Pride
I gave this book 5 stars. This was one of my most anticipated books of the year. I had it marked down on my calendar because I was just so excited to read it. It was worth every minute I spent waiting for its release. To this day it is my favorite Cora Reilly book. I love Remo.
I gave this book 2 stars. I keep trying to read books by this author because I loved her Kiss of Death series so much, but nothing is comparing. This especially was really disappointing.
11. Professor's Kiss
I gave this book 3 stars. I hate it when the "hero" of a novel blames the heroine for things that aren't her fault. It pisses me off. Also, the characters just aren't very memorable, like I've already forgotten both of the protagonists' names.
I gave this book 4 stars. I've been waiting for an R. K. Lilley book for what seems like decades. I always love her stories and this was no different. While it wasn't my favorite of her works I did fly through it.
13. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me
I gave this book 3 stars. I was so confused when I first started this before realizing that the author made up team names. I was legit out here thinking I knew less than nothing about American football teams. I mean I don't know a lot because I don't like football, but I do know that the team in Dallas is the Dallas Cowboys. Bit confusing, definitely too long, and I don't think too much really happens in those too many pages.
14. Again, but Better
I gave this book 4 stars. I just wrote a spoiler-free review of this the other day. If you want to know more of my thoughts on this book I'll leave a link here.
15. Avenger's Endgame
I gave this movie 5 stars. Honestly, I'm pretty sure this was the only new thing I watched in April. It had me in tears. I was in the movie theatre trying not to sob because everyone else was quiet and I didn't want to be that asshole who can't stay quiet during an important scene. I was sad for a full 3 days after I watched it and honestly, I don't think I've ever been that sad over a movie before. Highly recommend.
What books and movies did you guys enjoy in April?
