April 2017 Wrap Up

In April I read two books and DNFed two books.  Here is a list of the books I read and some of my thoughts on them.

Sleeping Giants (Themis Files book 1) by Sylvain Neuvel - 2/5 STARS
This book sounded exciting and the first 20% of it was but after that I just felt that the plot grew a lot weirder and began to make less sense and I also didn't really like any of the characters.

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman - 4/5 STARS
I really liked this book.  I loved the storyline of it and liked how it felt so current with the main character being obsessed with an internet podcast.  The story really held my interest from start to finish which was great.

The books I DNFed were:
Remix by Non Pratt
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Lesley Walton

I didn't have the best reading month in April but I am more hopeful for May since A Court of Wings and Ruin and Lord of Shadows are being released and those are two of my most anticipated books.  
In April I watched the anime Erased and really loved it.  I also watched 13 Reasons Why which I thought was great.  I read the book years ago and I loved the book so much so I'm really glad I liked the tv series.  I was really surprised at the acting in the show and how it really brought the characters to life.  Some songs I've been obsessed with recently have been Selena Gomez' Only You which was on the 13 Reasons Why soundtrack and I've also been listening to KARD'S song Rumor on repeat. 

What books did you read in April? Or what are some things you watched in April?

Top Ten Tuesday- Book Covers That Represent the Book Well

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's topic is 'Cover Theme Freebie', so I chose to do: Book Covers That Represent the Book Well.
So basically this is a list of six book covers that I think really reflects what the book is about.

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
This cover is so pretty but I also think it has a really cold and lonely feeling to it which it perfect for the book.  

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
I think this edition is really great at representing the book because each little picture on the cover is an actual scene that happens in the book. 

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I think there is no explanation needed for this one as it shows the main characters really well. 

In The Company of Killers series by JA Redmerski
These covers may seem very simple but I think they really reflect the books well because they're very dark and edgy and I love the red on black colours of it.

We Were Liars by E Lockhart
Once I finished this book I realised just how perfect the cover is for it.  It shows characters having fun in the summer but it's also very blurry which I think is perfect for the story.

The Diviners by Libba Bray
I think this edition is great at representing the story.  How the character is dressed on the cover, the New York background and even the writing style of the title gets across when and where the story takes place.  And the dark misty edges and the tagline really gets across how creepy and mysterious the story is.

What book covers do you think are good at representing the story?
