April Wrap Up

I blame exams and assignments for my lack of reading this month...and also the lateness of this post! Whoops! Even though I didn't read a massive amount I certainly read some fantastic books. Quality over quantity I guess...

4. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Oh my god. This book was everythinnnnnnnng. The characters were phenomenal. I adored Zelie, she wasn't perfect which gave her plenty of room to grow. And grow she did, in every aspect. I can't wait to see how she develops further in future novels. The other characters as well, Inan, Amari and Tzain. They're all so different and its so easy to tell whose chapter we're in. I never had to check to see whose head I was in.

Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri

I didn't think I was going to like this at all. It's very rare that I enjoy short short collections as I find them too short. I want to be fully immersed in the world. However, I absolutely loved this book. I think having an overall theme really aided in my enjoyment. Each story has some link to the Indian Disapora which sounds like it would be very dense, but if anything each story gives an insight into a very different culture and taught me things I never knew! Which is one of my favourite things books do.

Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton

The Rebel of the Sands series is without question one of my favourites and every book has, somehow, got better. The plots improved, the characters developed so much and the lore involved is just phenomenal. I'm so sad there aren't going to be any more books in this world. I grew so attached to all the characters, which wasn't the wisest move considering Alwyn has George R R Martin like tendencies...

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

I've been wanting to try and read more classics outside of school for years and now I've finally started! I adored this book, well two books. I read both Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. There's so much packed into these two short novels, there's illustrations and poems alongside the regular stories. I'm so glad I read this, and that I can say I read a classic because I wanted too.
