April (Wrap Up)

April has been a fantastic reading month. I was not expecting to read so many books this month and I thought it would be better to post a wrap up now than wait until the end of May.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes 
Goodreads Star Rating: 5/5
Oh my goodness I was not expecting that. I fell head first into this book and I refused to let go. I was so in love with Jojo's writing, she has such an amazing talent to draw the reader in, her storytelling and her characters came to life and I loved it. I fell in love with Lou and Will, their relationship was so lovely to see and how they bounced off each other was great. A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about how an emotional wreck I was over this book and the worst off all was seeing the second trailer for the movie just moments after finishing the book made me cry so much. I feel that the film with do an incredible job interpreting page to screen and I am very much looking forward to it.

After You by Jojo Moyes 
Goodreads Star Rating:…

Girl Of Myth And Legend by Giselle Simlett (Book Review)

Girl of Myth and Legend by Giselle Simlett
A girl with a past she tries to forget, and a future she can't even imagine.
Leonie Woodville wants to live an unremarkable life. She wants routine, she wants reputation, she wants predictability. She when she explodes in a blaze of light one morning on the way to her college, it's enough to put a real crimp in her day.
And things only get weirder...
Leonie learns from her father that she is last of the Pulsar, a phenomenally powerful member of a magical species called the Chosen. It will be her sole duty to protect the Imperium, a governing hierarchy, from all enemies, and to exceed the reputation of the Pulser before her. So - No pressure there, then.
Leonie is swept away from her rigorous normality and taken to a world of magic. There, she is forced into a ceremony to join her soul to a guardian, Korren, who is both incredibly handsome and intensely troubled, a relationship for which 'it's complicated' really doesn't cut…

Gilmore Girls 2.0 Book Tag

I am very excited for the Gilmore Girls revival and I have already seen pictures and I am so excited. 
I haven't done any book tags for a while and I found this book tag recently, and I really want to do it.
This book tag was created by Stephanie Place also known as Pink Lemonade Reads. Here is the link to the original video (Gilmore Girls 2.0 Book Tag)

There is also another Gilmore Girl Book Tag created by Alyssa also known as Punks and Paperbacks which I will also leave a link to the video (Gilmore Girls Book Tag)

1. I JUST GOT HIT BY A DEER - A Character having the worst day ever

Insanity by Cameron Jace. 
Alice because she is stuck in an asylum, so that counts.

2. STARS HOLLOW - Wildly eccentric cast

Now I couldn't think of a book/ series apart from Harry Potter that could fit this category, so I will stick to Harry Potter.

3. COFFEE - a book you're addicted to/a character with an addiction

Pleasure of a Dark Prince by Kresley Cole (Immortals After Dark Series)
A. Scotti…
