April 2020 Wrap-Up!

Here are all the books that I read in April 2020. I didn't read as much as I did last month, but I did read more novels instead of comics/graphic novels. I also started and finished the O.W.L.S. Magical Readathon, so I'm excited about that. I successfully completed my career for Potioneer.

Like Never and Always by Ann Aguirre -- I was pretty interested in this one. It had a really intriguing plot and I liked the writing style. I'm not sure how I feel about the two brothers angle, but I do like the one she chose. Definitely reading more by Ann Aguirre. BOOKCITEMENT LEVEL 4/5

Career of Potioneer


A Curious Beginning (Veronica Speedwell #1) by Deanna Raybourn -- Subject: Aritmancy - Read a book outside of your favorite genre. This grew on me the more I read it. It was a book full of chaos and I liked it. Definitely going to continue with this series. It started out a little slow, but it pulled me in. 

Woven in Moonlight by Isabel Ibanez -- Subject: Care of Magical Creatures - a book with a beak on the cover.  This was cute. I thought it was fun. There were times when it tried to go hard and violent, and I just don't think it gelled well with the rest of the book. I liked all the magical gifts, but I can't say that I understood why or how these people had magic. This was mainly a cover grab, but I did like the story.

Switchback (Nightshades #2) by Melissa F. Olson -- Subject: Charms - a book with a white cover. I liked this book too. This one was a dark and gritty urban fantasy. It's a special FBI Unit that investigates vampire crimes, and they have a vampire on the team. It was a super fast read and I'm intrigued to read the last book and see how it all ends.

Motor Crush, Volume 1 by Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart, and Babs Tarr -- Subject: Herbology - a book with a title that starts with the letter M. I really liked the art style in this and the story was interesting too. I'll be on the lookout for Volume 2 whenever my library reopens.

Hammers on Bone (Persons Non Grata #1) by Cassandra Khaw -- Subject Potions: A book under 150 pages. This was a little strange, but overall I liked it. It was very Lovecraftian in its horror, which means there were so many gross eyeballs. An interesting story and I'd be curious to check out more.

Diamond City (#1) by Francesca Flores -- This was pretty good. There was a lot of action, a lot of adventure. I was a little slow in reading through this, but I think it was me instead of the book. I'm interested to see where the sequel goes.

And that is everything I read in April 2020! I pretty much liked everything, so that was good. I'm happy that I finished my O.W.L.S. and am now excited for when the N.E.W.T.S. happen. It's a really fun readathon, and I definitely recommend you take part in it. Hopefully I have a good reading month in May.
