Books I've read in March and April / Wrap-Up

Since I've only read 2 books in March, I'm gonna make a Wrap-Up for March and April!


In March I've read:


Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life by Nick Vujicic
which was a really inspiring Memoir/Self-Help book.
I gave it 5 Stars


The absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie
which was a YA Contemporary novel about as you can guess by the title a Native American boy.
You can read my full thoughts here:

I gave this book 3.5 Stars




In April I've read:


A light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein
which is a collection of poems mainly written for children, I really enjoyed it a lot and it gave me a new insight into poetry
I gave it 5 Stars


Stolen by Lucy Christopher
which is another YA Contemporary written as a letter from Gemma to her captor telling the story about her kidnapping. It was a very intense and touching journey.
I gave it 4.75 Stars


My Name is Mina by David Almond
which is a wonderful crafted Children's Novel about the extraordinary girl called Mina and her journey to find a place in this world.
I gave this book 4.75 Stars


Skellig by David Almond
which you can read as a Sequel or Prequel to My Name is Mina
I gave this book 4.5 Stars


Happyface by Stephen Emond
which includes some stunning illustrations.
I gave it 4.5 Stars


Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton
which is a collection of amazing photographs including some really inspiring quotes from interviews.
I gave this book 5 Stars


Starting from Happy by Patricia Marx
which is a nearly absurd Contemporary Fiction lovestory with a Woody Allen Touch to it.
I gave it 5 Stars


The Museum of intangible Things by Wendy Wonder
which is a beautifully written YA Contemporary Road Trip book.
I gave it 5 Stars


Poetry Please - Love Poems
which is a great collection of Love Poems including some of my favorites.
I gave this book 4 Stars


After that, I've finished the Mr Gum children's series:
Mr Gum and the Goblins (Part 3; 4.25 Stars)
Mr Gum and the Power Crystals (Part 4; 4.5 Stars)
Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear (Part 5; 4.5 Stars)

Mr Gum and the Cherry Tree (Part 7; 4.75 Stars)
Mr Gum and the Secret Hideout (Part 8; 4.5 Stars)


As you may noticed, April was, with 15 read books, a pretty successful month!
