Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2020

Morning, everyone!

I’d say April is a Twilight Zone kind of month. And I’m not sure how to respond to that statement. But hey. Like you, I spent an obscene amount of money on books and time with reading. But I regret nothing.

I hope everyone is coping with the quarantine. Have fun reading the post!

I breezed right through eight books last month, and I’m still trying to wrap my head around that.

Moxie by C. M. Stunich

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ugh, this series nearly broke me emotionally. I cried, I squealed, and I laughed. And I wish it didn’t end with just three books. I would have been fine with seven books. But, oh well. The character growth of Lilith and her men are beautiful.

A Lovely Confession by Coralee June

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love this duet. Even though the final book didn’t capture me as the first one did, I’m amazed at how Cora masterfully weaved this series. Hunter and Roe are two broken characters who shouldn’t be together. But their darkness matches each other. And I love it.

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City #1) by Sarah J. Maas

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’m not ready to talk about this book. I’m utterly broken and shattered beyond measure. This book destroyed me. And I’m not okay. Sarah has not only improved her writing but also made fun of her previous work. I cackled when I heard alphahole.

LIGHT IT UP!

Corrupt by Penelope Douglas

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Erin, my blogger friend and squad member, told me I had no choice but to read the Devil’s Night series. I finally got around to it. And it might be one of the best bully dark romance novels I’ve ever read. The four horsemen scared and intrigued me. I loved how Michael and Rika found their way to each other.

Hideaway by Penelope Douglas

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Kai is one of those characters who sneaks up on you and refuses to let go. His dynamic character growth is great. And I loved how he bonded with Banks, his love interest. Many secrets explained and told. And I was eager to get to the next installment.

Kill Switch by Penelope Douglas

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½

Ugh, I wanted to kill Damon for what he did to his friends and his love interest, Winter. But Penelope somehow makes me love the guy I wanted to gut. I thoroughly blame her for this.

Conclave by Penelope Douglas

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It’s short and sweet. The horsemen and their women are out to find one of their own. Penelope kept me on my toes. And I cannot wait to read Will’s book.

Bully Me: Class of 2020 by Siobhan Davis, Callie Hart, Coralee June, Sam Mariano, Kaydence Snow, C. M. Stunich, Shantel Tessier, K. Webster

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½

I loved all of the stories in this anthology. And proceeds go to a good cause. I just wish that the stories were complete. I’m so eager to read them now!


Besides some of the books mentioned above, I spent way too much money buying more books. But I have zero regrets. I’m excited to get to these ones though.


  • Loretta, my little puffball, from Laughing Listener convinced me to buy Bone Crier’s Moon. Why? her review.
  • Kal from Reader Voracious discusses how she writes in her books. Now, I must confess that I don’t do it, but Kal gives convincing reasons though.
  • Jess from Fiction No Chaser is killing me with her review of A Conjuring of Light, which I desperately need to read. So check out her review!
  • Xandra from Starry Sky Books shows off the books she wants to revisit. I rarely reread books, but she makes me want to do it.
  • Kathy from Books and Munches shares to same love for House of Earth and Blood. I loved reading her review of it.

  1. I am SO GLAD you loved HoEaB as well! Like! SO GOOD. *staring at my copy*
    I really want more of where that came from. I’m also bummed Jay Kristoff’s vampire fantasy is only releasing in 2021. But.. there’s still plenty of unchartered fantasy books-terrain, right?!

    [Also thankyouthankyou for mentioning my review ❤ ]
