April Wrap Up 2016

1 May 2016

Hey all, 

Today I bring to you my April wrap up, it's been a great month. Had a lovely Easter holidays and I have finally caught up with college assignments and I'm just feeling pretty great at the moment! I read a total of 3 books this month and I'm happy about that as I haven't been able to read so much recently due to college, so 3 is fab especially when one of the books was really long too!

// Demigods and Monsters (Sphinx #2) // Raye Wagner // 4½ Stars // 
This is the second instalment to the Sphinx series written by Raye Wagner and I actually really enjoyed it, more so than the first one. There was more character building and more characters were introduced, all incredible intriguing. I loved that we finally met more demigods and learnt about different Gods, which is my favourite thing within greek mythology books. I was sent the eBook from Raye Wagner herself and I'm very grateful for her doing so and I can't wait for the third instalment!

// Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter #4) // J.K. Rowling // 5 Stars // 
I'm so happy I decided to read these books, I love the films but I am LOVING the books even more. 'Goblet of Fire' was great, so much happened and it was non-stop throughout the whole book, I also loved seeing more of each character and meeting new ones. For instance, I loved how much Dobby was in the book as we don't get to see him much throughout the films, whereas in 'Goblet of Fire' he pops up everywhere. I'm definitely going to continue on with the series and I can't wait to see what new information I find out within 'The Order of the Phoenix'.

// Room // Emma Donoghue // 5 Stars // 
I was incredible skeptical going in to this book, I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did, due to it being an adult fiction book and that it was written in the perspective of a 5 year old. Boy was I wrong. This book was phenomenal, brilliant and so eye opening. It was very interesting reading from Jack's perspective and Emma Donoghue wrote him perfectly. Since reading the book I have watched the film and the book is so much better by far, the journey was definitely more thrilling and exciting than it was in the film (the actors in the film were spot on though, I just enjoyed reading about the story than watching it, thats all). 

What have you all read this month? Also did you all have a good Easter? I hope to read the same amount of books next month too. I only have 2 months left of college and then I'm off for over two months for summer which I'm looking forward to - so much reading time! Keep an eye out for my May TBR post :) 

Love you all,
