Here are the top four books that I read in April 2019:
- The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern – I dodged this book for so long. I fully admit now, after reading it, that dodging it was a huge mistake. This book is literally magical and amazing and I loved every page. It was so much more than a story about the circus. It gave me all the feels. It was fantastic. Do yourself a favor, if you haven’t read this book, go read it!
- Beasts of the Frozen Sun by Jill Criswell – This was a free e-ARC I received in exchange for an honest review. I honestly didn’t have many expectations going into it, but I really enjoyed it. The characters are unique, the story was interesting, and it had an ending that I didn’t expect. Major bonus points for the surprise factor. I’m very difficult to surprise.
- To Best the Boys by Mary Weber – I knew I would like this book. Girls who like math and science are my heroes. I loved the female empowerment and that she wasn’t just fighting to be a princess or something superficial. Rhen Tellur was trying to win a competition to go to school to be a doctor. What could be a more noble cause?
- Fawkes by Nadine Brandes – Since I only read 9 books in April, it was a little difficult for me to choose number 4 here. I didn’t love Fawkes but, I also didn’t dislike it. It took me quite a while to read it (several weeks) but I’m glad I finished it. The best part of this book was that it forced me to do a little research into some history that I really didn’t know much about.
Other books I read in April but didn’t make this list:
- Sunstone’s Secret by Kate Kennelly
- The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
- The Healer by Virginia Boecker
- Veiled Allurement by Elle Beaumont
- Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean
- Kingdom Cold by Brittni Chenelle
