Welcome to my April Wrap Up. I had a great reading month, finishing 7 books (6 books off my TBR). I also received 4 ARC's this month, and I continued my new goal of reading 1 Shakespeare play, as well as 10 Brother's Grimm fairy-tales.

I have reviews up or coming up for these books so as usual this is just going to be a brief run down on each book I read.

Without further ado, let's get into my April Wrap Up..

The Price Of Paradise by Iain Overton: This book was amazing. It was an un-biased look at the suicide bomber and how these attacks have changed the world we live it. With insights from journalists, politicians, survivors and suicide bombers, this book is a must read for everyone.

Natives by Akala: This book was fascinating. I didn't know what to expect going into it, but I really enjoyed it. It was emotional and powerful while still being educational. I learnt a lot whilst reading this book and I know that it is going to stay with me for a long time. A must read book.

Wonder by R.J. Palacio: This book was wonderful. I had been putting it off think it would be too sad but boy was I wrong. This book was the perfect combination of heartbreaking and heart-warming and left me with the warm and fuzzies. I am so glad I finally read this book.

The Crossroads by Pamela Cook: I loved this book. The characters were fantastic and the way their stories wove together made for a heart-warming reading experience. I found myself completely absorbed in this story and I was sad that it had to end. I will definitely be reading more or Pamela Cook's works.

The Bad Mother's Book Club by Keris Stainton: This was a quick, easy read. There was a character for everyone and a situation that could easily be related to. I had some genuine laugh out loud moments whilst reading this book. If you are looking for a light, easy book then this is the book for you.

Devour by L.A. Larkin: This was an interesting read. I loved the idea of this book; the virus is actually pretty frightening when you think about it. I had some trouble with the different storylines taking place at the same time; it made it hard to care about any of them long enough to build a connection.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah: This book was equal parts heart-warming and heartbreaking. I am a massive fan of Historical Fictions so I am not surprised by how much I loved this book. The setting was wonderful, the writing emotional and the characters believable. I will be re-reading this book many times in the future.

Shakespeare: I read 1 Shakespeare play in April. I read the following Shakespeare Play This Month:

The First Part Of King Henry The Fourth

Brother's Grimm: I am happy to say that I completed my goals of reading 10 Brother Grimm Fairy Tales in April. I read the following Tales this month:

The Three Green Twigs


The Devil's Sooty Brother

Frau Trude

Death's Messengers
