Wrap Up: April 2020

Hello readers, we are back again with a recap of my reading this month.

How are you doing with the lockdown?

In April I participated in the Magical Readathon (O.W.L.s) so I managed to read 11 books!

Unfortunately, 4 of these are 1-star books.

5 stars:

7052505

The Hunchback assignments is a great historical fiction/steampunk with a really unusual main character. Modo is a hunchback rescued by a freak show who is also a shapeshifter. He became a spy, and this story is full of action.

3 stars:

The Romanovs: the final chapter is about the final days, the murder and the research of the bodies of the Romanov family. Is really gruesome at the beginning, but it became boring with the discussions about DNA and the investigations.

The transatlantic conspiracy has an amazing idea (a train who runs underwater between Europe and America!!), a beautiful cover and a really good description. The mystery is a little bland.

Goddess of the hunt is a collection of poetry, I enjoyed it because it’s about asexuality, even if poetry isn’t my cup of tea.

Clockwork gold is a short story set in Australia with a little bit of steampunk, but it’s a love story, in the end.

2 stars:

Il quarto fato (sorry, it’s only in Italian!) is a retelling inspired by One thousand and one nights, written really well, but I can’t stand the main character.

Unfortunately, I’ve read Greenglass house only months ago, and my rating is influenced by this. The last chance hotel is basically the same story, but less captivating.

1 star:

Mountain of the dead: fourth book (for me) of this series, it became more misogynist every book I read. But I made a promise to finish it, and there’s one last book.

Convenience store woman was interesting in the beginning, but I can’t stand the MC or her lifestyle during the story.

I had great expectations for Incarnation, a sort of retelling of Dracula where Lucy tries to find who transform her in a vampire, but as always, the author treats Bram Stoker very badly, and I can’t accept this.

Readers, I present you the most boring, the worse advertised, the most helpful if you suffer by insomnia book of all the time: Bellman & Black.

And that’s all for this month!

Have you read some good books in April?

Tell me in the comments!

  1. It’s unfortunate that you didn’t like many of the books you read last month. I can relate to having certain months like that. Though the Hunchback Assignments does look interesting.
