ARC April | Recap & Wrap-Up

arc april 2

At the beginning of this month, I announced that I will be joining Read.Sleep.Repeat‘s event, ARC April.

ARC April is an event where the goal is to read all (if possible) your ARCs for the month. On my initial post, I pledged that I’ll be reading 9 of my ARCs for the month. I wasn’t really able to post a weekly progress of how I’m catching up but that’s because I’ve decided to just do a single post to wrap everything up. So… how many books did I actually read?
(See my initial ARC April post here)

ARCs I’ve actually read…

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to achieve my ambitious goal of reading 9 books but 5 isn’t so bad, right? Just don’t compare it to others who’ve gone double digits. LOL. Anyway, I was also able to review all of them as well! So, win-win!
Here are some excerpt from my reviews of the following books (click respective links for full review):
The writing is simple and straightforward, making it even more engaging than it already is and it’s one of the many reasons why I enjoyed this book. There’s something magnetic about it. The storyline is my kind of contemporary – real and fulfilling.

 

The story wasn’t that long, it had brief chapters with amusing titles but, the pacing made it feel like I was reading a 700-page book. The story was going a little slow where I got to the point that I don’t even know where the whole story was going.

 

The story telling was good and easy to follow but the actual story just got really weird and messy halfway through which made me confused in some parts. I didn’t understand some them but I think the problem was on my end. I guess it’s one attribute you can’t take away from the story because it’s supposed to be weird and messy and, it works.

 

The storyline, the continuity and how things are interconnected like a perfectly woven tapestry in this book is one of the things that I find laudable about Suffer Love. I didn’t mind the amount of coincidences long as it brings our two characters together.

 

My thoughts about this book are conflicting. Let’s say The Star-Touched Queen‘s theme is not fitting for my taste BUT the story is my own fantasy realized into a book.

So, that’s it! Did you join ARC April too? How did your month go? Let me know in the comments!
Thank you!

  1. 5 books is pretty great! Always read at your own pace. I’m intrigued by your excerpted review of The Star-Touched Queen – I just started the book and I’m liking it so far. I’ll be looking for your review once I finish it! 🙂

  2. 5 books is great! Especially because it looks like you read some really good ones. I hope you enjoyed TSTQ – I’ve heard so many good things about it recently, and I really want to read it! 9 is a very ambitious number anyway haha. I hope you enjoyed all the books you read in April! ♥
