Fantastic Four – April 2019 Books


Here are the top four books that I read in April 2019:

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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:
