What I Read this Month

April 2020 Reads

I am so impressed with how many books I read this month! However, my April reads had several disappointing books, but I definitely got out of my comfort zone, so that’s a win!

Ask Again, Yes

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane was a surprising read for me. I had this book on hold for several weeks and completely forgot about it! I really loved the relationships in this book and how one night can change everything. Definitely recommend checking this one out!

One of Us Is Lying

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Zoella’s book club pick for March, One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus, was such an exciting mystery! I’m a sucker for a good mystery, so combine it with high school drama and you’ve got a great combination!

The Kiss Quotient

Rating: 3 out of 5.

In order to complete my Bookish bingo card for April, I had to find a book with an autistic protagonist and one with an Asian-American author, so when I saw that The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang would check both of those boxes, I started reading! This gender swap, Pretty Woman inspired book was definitely out of my comfort zone. It isn’t a spectacular piece of literature by any means, but it was a nice quick read that was a much-needed change of pace.

The Giver of Stars

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes was phenomenal. I loved the characters, the setting, and the plot. Honestly, I have nothing negative to say about this one. If you want more details, I wrote a review of it here.

Untamed

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Reese’s Book Club pick for this month was Untamed by Glennon Doyle. While I don’t agree with the author’s lifestyle and some of the content in the book, I was impressed with how genuine and simple her writing is. She definitely wrote some things that I resonated with me, but overall, I am not the biggest fan of the book.

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone

Rating: 1.5 out of 5.

Lori Gottlieb’s best-seller, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone was one of my disappointing April reads. From all of the fantastic reviews and hype surrounding this book, I had pretty high expectations. I didn’t think the book was terrible content-wise, but it just didn’t do anything for me. I guess it just wasn’t my type of book.

Olive, Again

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Olive, Again by Elizabeth Strout was good, but I didn’t find it thrilling at all. I didn’t realize until about half-way through that this was actually the second book Strout had written about Olive. Maybe if I had read the first book, I would have liked this one better?


How many of my April reads have you read? I’d love to hear your thoughts about these books!
