Well to be honest I am glad April is over, it has been such a stressful month. I started my new job and left some wonderful colleagues behind. I had a pretty good reading month though. I managed to read 1 short story collection, 1 comic and 7 novels.
I will attach any reviews that I have done and as usual if you want to find out more about the book then click on the cover to be forwarded to Goodreads.
This an interpretation of different stories that involve Djinn. I found a few of them good but some were confusing or just boring. I rated this 2/5 stars (Review to come)
I really enjoyed this book, I haven’t read Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda but I am going to rectify that soon. I loved the characters and the story line. 4/5 stars The Upside of Unrequited
This was a really great fast read, there is romance, political intrigue and flying ships. I rated this 4/5 stars (Review to come)
This book I won on a Goodreads giveaway and enjoyed what I read. It follows Kit and Laura on the aftermath of witnessing a rape. 3.5/5 stars He Said/She Said
I have had this on my shelf for over a year and was really in the mood to read a comic/graphic novel. This was sadly disappointing. I just didn’t really understand it or what the hell was going on. The artwork in this book is to die for. I loved it so much, I took my time admiring the color palette and the way the illustrations were drawn……I wish I could draw *sigh* I rated this 1/5 stars. I will not be reviewing this.
I really enjoyed this book, it was a gripping psychological thriller and really recommend. I rated this 4.5/5 stars (review to come)
Even though this book is only 140 pages it took me ages to read it. It started putting me in a slump but I managed to finish it. I am not rating this book as I am not really sure how I feel about it. I feel I ought to think it’s wonderful as it won the Pulitzer prize in 1975 but I just can’t. This book was required reading for my German As level class in college but I obviously interpreted totally different all those years ago as I remembered nothing. (I won’t be reviewing this book)
After reading Forbidden I didn’t think I would be reading a book with incest for a long time…how wrong was I? Unlike Forbidden I didn’t really enjoy this book that much.I felt it dragged and not a lot happened. I rated this 2.5/5 stars (Review to come)
I think this book has been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2017. This is a bizaare yet compelling read, It’s only short, very fast paced and somewhat confusing. I rated this 3/5 stars (review to come)

What I watched:
First time I have watched this and I have to say that I loved Chunk.
This was very jumpy and enjoyed it for the most part. This is based on the Enfield Haunting in the UK.
I loved this, I took the kids to see this but it had me laughing out load and I totally recommend.
Everybody has been watching this, I have only watched the first 2 episodes (shameful I know) but I am enjoying it and it’s making me want to read the book again.
So that’s it for April! What have you been upto?Did you have a good reading month?
Thanks for reading
