April Round-Up


Can you believe we are in May already? As I write this I am majorly procrastinating my university assignments, I only have two weeks left which is crazy!





Anyway... here is my round up and a little one line review of my April reads!


The Khan - Saima Mir*


A re-telling of The Godfather with a women at the helm? Yes please!


The Summer Job - Lizzy Dent*


A fun summer read, centred around friendship, family and finding who you are.


Just Like You - Nick Hornby*


A look into modern britain and the complexities of love and relationships.


Boys Don't Cry - Fiona Scarlett*


Completely raw and emotional, you will need a packet of tissues for this!


The Venice Sketchbook - Rhys Bowen*


(this was featured in AD but this post is completely separate)

A dual narrative set across two generations in Venice. Perfect escapism (until WW2 begins).


Lonely Castle in The Mirror - Mizuki Tsujimura*


This is a contender for my favourite book of the year (so far). It tells the story of children in Japan who all find themselves passing through a mirror into a castle where they are met by a wolf and must complete a task to have a wish granted. It sounds the opposite of anything I'd enjoy but I loved it.


I Am Not Your Baby Mother - Candice Brathwaite*


A non-fiction book about the reality of being a black mother in Britain. An eye-opening, must read.


Love in a Lost Year - Josh Oldridge*


Imagine Normal People by Sally Rooney set during lockdown! I loved it!


One Ordinary Day at a Time -Sarah J Harris *


A modern day Educating Rita, a wholesome story about a 25 year old single mum, trying to get into Cambridge to give children in care a start that she never had.


Love & London - Ellie White*


An enemy's - lovers romcom, I flew through this in a day!
