I had a pretty good reading month again this month - actually it has been a pretty good reading year all together. In April I read a total of 16 books, 4 of these were rereads. I also participated in one readathon, and continued on with my yearly goal of reading one classic a month. Here is what I read and what I thought of each book.

The Scrapbook of my Life - Alfie Deyes
Alfie is one of my favourite YouTuber's, so as soon as his new biography typed scrapbook was released, I picked it up straight away. It was funny, creative, and I really enjoyed reading more about his life.
5 Stars

Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
This was the first classic I read this month (I had to read two to catch up for January and February). I really enjoyed this classic; it wasn't my favourite and it was really long, however I preferred it to some others that I have read this year.
4 Stars

The Raven Boys, The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily, Lily Blue - Maggie Stiefvater
I decided to marathon this series that I have wanted to read for a long time. Since the final book in the series, The Raven King, is being released in May, I thought now was a good time. I really enjoyed these three books; they were original and interesting. However I didn't love them and found myself quite confused at times.

When We Collided - Emery Lord
I did a full review of this book on my blog so you can check that out for more details. Basically I liked the story line and how it talked about serious issues, however I had a few problems with the characters and parts of the plot.
4 Stars

The 5th Wave and The Infinite Sea - Rick Yancey
I have wanted to read these books since seeing The 5th Wave movie at the beginning of the year, and since The Last Star is released at the end of May, I wanted to pick them up before. I loved these two books, even better than the movie. Highly recommend especially since I'm not usually a huge sci-fi fan.
5 Stars

Star Struck - Jenny McLachlan
I also did a full review on my blog for this book, so you can check that out. I somewhat liked the story, I just found parts of it unnecessary and random. I found that it is a book for early teenagers.
3 Stars

Allegiant - Veronica Roth
As part of the 24 Hour Readathon (I also did a blog post on this) I decided to reread a few books. After seeing the Allegiant movie (I also did a movie review blog) I wanted to refresh my mind on the book by rereading it.
5 Stars (still)

We Were Liars - E. Lockhart
This was the second book I reread for the readathon. I read it a couple of years ago and loved it, and so I wanted to relive the story line again and refresh my mind on the events.
5 Stars (still)

The Heir - Kiera Cass
This was the third book I reread for the readathon. The final book to The Selection series, The Crown, is being released in May (so many releases!) I wanted to refresh my mind on the previous book as there were a lot of things I couldn't remember.
5 Stars (still)

The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
This was the fourth book I reread for the readathon, and also included as my second classic for the month. I read this beautiful book years ago for a school essay, and to this day it is still my favourite classic, and one of my favourite books. It was really good to read it again.

The Yearbook Committee - Sarah Ayoub
I also did a full review of this which you can check out. I really enjoyed this book, and almost gave it 5 stars until some events that occurred near the end and so I had to reconsider my decision. It is set in Australia which is also really cool!
4.5 Stars

Flawed - Cecelia Ahern
And my final book for the month, which I finished just in time on the 30th of April. I love Ahern's work, and when I found out that she released a YA dystopia novel, I had to request it for review. I also posted a review for this book on my blog which you can check out. This book has such a unique concept and the story line was really intriguing.
5 Stars
