How is it already the end of April?! I feel like I could say this every month, to be honest, but April really did fly by. I did alright with my challenges, at least one book in each and a few books pulling double duty! 8 books total, 5 for challenges. May is going to be a busy release month so hopefully I can keep up and read even more! I’m 5 books ahead of my Goodreads goal at least, woohoo!
Flights of Fantasy (3 books)
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab- 5 stars. What. A. Conclusion!! This book was nonstop from the first page and I adored every minute of it. It was so intense in every way; I gasped and grinned and cried. It was great.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling- 5 stars. I always go back and forth on whether this or Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite. I loved reading it again.
A Creature of Moonlight by Rebecca Hahn- 3 stars. Different from what I expected, but it was enjoyable and had that slightly sinister tone I love in fantasy books.
Retellings Reading Challenge (1 book)
Geekerella by Ashley Poston- 5 stars. This was everything my Cinderella-loving, geeky fandom heart wanted! Such a fun book.
Rock My TBR (1 book)
A Creature of Moonlight– this has been on my shelf for so long, it’s possible I preordered it!
Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge (2 books)
Geekerella– seriously, this book is A Cinderella Story meets Comic Con. SPACE SWOONS.
Keeping The Distance by Clarisse David- 3.5 stars. I won this in a giveaway and it was a very cute romance! I hadn’t read a book set in the Philippines before so I enjoyed that a lot.
ReReads (1 book)
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince– another reread in the books! I actually hadn’t read this in at least 6 years, which surprised me.
As for non-challenge books, I also read Poe Dameron Vol. 1: Black Squadron, Star Wars Vol. 1: Skywalker Strikes, and Ahsoka. Let’s just say I was feeling inspired after all the Star Wars Celebration news!
