April Wrap-Up // Ella

Friday, 5 May 2017

Hi there, it's Ella!

And there we go again....
I know, I'm a bit late, but I will start with my monthly post trio right away. Starting with my wrap-up today, followed by my monthly overview and tbr.

Let's dive right into it.

I started this month with

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard ✭✭✭

and have also read Glass Sword ✭✭✭✭✩

I did enjoy both books very much, though I liked the first one a bit better. The Sequel was going slow at some points, but I am super curious for the third one, though I will wait to buy this one until there a copy of the size of my two others available.
I consider writing a review on the series after reading Kings Cage.

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour  ✭✭✭

I really loved this one. Check out my review.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline  ✭✭✭

Was probably my favourite read this month. 

My Goodreads review: This book was an awesome read!
I really enjoyed the virtual reality, the possibilities it gaves to the plot.
Action, fun and mystery, magic, 80s culture and a tiny little bit of romance.
I loved the characters (except the evil ones of course - but even they were the perfect villains you love to hate).
But I also likes the serious background of the book - it really makes one think - and we should:
Massive environmental pollution and growing relevance of living online are topics we're already dealing with and will even more in the future.

The Creeping Shadow ( Lockwood & Co #4) by Jonathan Stroud ✭✭✭✭✩

I am quite a fan of the Lockwood series, though they're middle grade reads. But the authors creates an awesome atmosphere, cosy but exciting. It makes me feel being a child again, not only because those are middle grade reads or I started the series when I was some years younger, but because the concept of ghost hunters itself is rather a more childlike. I love that.
But I have to admit, that I did not enjoy this book as much as the previous ones, mainly because we had not the regular team setup and some emotional distance between the characters.

Not on the photo but still read

The Ice Twins by S.K.Tremayne ✭✭✭✭✩

I do not usually read thrillers, but sometimes, I do.
The Ice Twins was a really quick read for me, because it was damn exciting. I absolutely didn't see the plot twist in the end coming. The concept was unique I think and the psychological concept my cup of tea, since I study psychology and that's what I am interested in.

As you see, I did not read as much as in the last months, but university started again, so that's some kind of excuse. (It's not.) 
But I really enjoyed those books I read, so that's a plus!

See you soon,
