April Wrap Up + Stats

While I didn’t follow my April TBR at all I did still manage to read an impressive number of books…21. I was kind of shocked when I was putting this post together that I managed to read so much but I did participate in three readathons so that is definitely the reason I had such a successful month. I’m also really happy that I had TEN five star books. In January I also had ten five star reads but that was because I binge read the entire Hades Hangmen  series but this month was ten different authors that I really enjoyed.

I got to the second chapter where the main characters were hooking up for the first time and she is drunk but still is aware enough to realize that she doesn’t want to have sex anymore. And then apologizes for leading him on and everyone else that he tells this story to tells him that she must be unstable. Like wtf??? I know this book was written in 2005 but I still feel like we were aware of women’s rights then and I don’t know why the author chose to do that. Especially because the female character did end up having a breakdown so it came across to me that a woman changing her mind midway through a hookup wasn’t acceptable behavior. Which is total bullshit.

This is a fantastic dystopian novel that I went into thinking was going to be predictable but I never could have guessed the places this story went. I really need to get on reading the sequels because my son said he wasn’t really a fan of how it ended and I want to be able to talk to him about why he thinks that.

I’ve already written a full review for this book but since it doesn’t come out until July you are going to have to wait awhile to see it. Just know that I really loved this and read it all in one day.

I wasn’t sure at all about this book because it started off so slow but once the story got rolling I couldn’t put it down. I have never in my life had a such a physical reaction to a book before which is a huge testament to the author and how real this book felt to me. Even just writing this little wrap up has all those feelings coming back and makes me so upset all over again. This book will stay with me forever and is also something I will have all my kids read when they are teenagers because the themes of this book are so incredibly important.

This was a very disturbing read. I really love that the author chose to tell Yeong-hye’s story through three different narrators and not Yeong-hye herself. There are definitely strong feminist themes in this horror story which made the story more complex than I was expecting.

I’ve already spoken quite a bit about this book so all I’m going to say is that I am amazed (and slightly horrified) at how dark and twisted Stephen King’s mind is.

I'm a SAHM of three boys. I was lucky enough to marry my best friend who is totally ok with my book hoarding tendencies. I have been a lover of books my whole life and it has been such a blessing to be able to share that love with my kids.
