Welcome to another wrap-up! Today, we are discussing *drum roll* APRIL BOOKS! I had a huge month planned for April of around 5 books, but I read 3, so I ultimately failed. The books I read were:
Blood of Wonderland, by Colleen Oakes
Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, by Cassandra Clare
Lady Midnight, by Cassandra Clare

Thoughts: This was a solid read! I enjoyed it, but it isn't my favorite Alice retelling. This is the second book in the Queen of Hears saga, which is a series about the Queen of Hearts, before she became the Queen of Hearts! I do enjoy these books, but they're more of a guilty pleasure for me rather than a series that I am fully devoted to. I gave this 3.5/5 stars on the Goodreads rating, and 8.5/10 on my personal scale.
Thoughts: I started this book because Christine (polandbananasBOOKS on YouTube) said she would recommend reading this before Lady Midnight, which is what I did! I loved seeing all of our characters from TMI and TID coming back and all of their interactions! I won't go into detail about what this is about since it spoils the entire TMI series, but I did really enjoy it! I gave it 5/5 stars on Goodreads and 9/10 on my personal scale.
Thoughts: Another great read! This book took me forever to read, and it had nothing to do with the content; I believe it was because I had just read TFtSA and I needed a break from the Shadowhunter world, but I did finish this and did love it a lot! Unless you have no interest in reading TMI or TID, (which you should--TID is soooo wonderful and TMI is great as well) don't pick this up yet because it will spoil you, and it doesn't give a huge introduction into the world, because we are focused on two parabatai who have grown up in the world of Shadowhunters. I loved this book and the characters, and can't wait for Lord of Shadows!
