I can’t believe we are in May already! In April, I read 9 books in total, and I was mostly pleasantly surprised with them. A great month for me, overall, with amazing books on the way. In the April monthly wrap up, you will see all the books I managed to read.
I have also continued with my Down The TBR Hole Tag and I am excited to see what progress I will make this year. Below are all four posts I did this month:
TBR Hole #26 🌟 TBR Hole #27 🌟TBR Hole #28 🌟 TBR Hole #29
Books I read:
Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn – ★★★★★
Even though Undercover Princess has great resemblance to The Princess Diaries and The Princess Protection Program, this book is unique in its own way, and the story is very different and positively surprising. I was in love with the characters and loved this book a lot. I will definitely be reading the second book of the series!

Nemesis (#3) by Rory Clements – ★★★★★
Nemesis is full of suspense from the very first chapter, and the thing I loved the most about it was that the chapters are quite short, and always leave you hanging, hungry to find out more. Every word that Rory Clements types had a meaning and a purpose in this book, and that was the bit I admired the most.

Goodnight, Monster! by Chloe Sanders – ★★★★
A cute and cheeky bedtime story! I knew I was going to enjoy this little read as soon as I saw the cover and the little blurb. Goodnight, Monster! by Chloe Sanders is a story about Ben, who doesn’t want to go to bed, because there is a monster in his room.

Nanny and the Beast by Georgia Le Carre – ★★★★
The book features April, who is a nanny by profession. She goes for an interview in a Russian billionaire’s house for the nanny position. Yuri is a Russian billionaire who has a niece, Yulia, that hasn’t been speaking for a few months. When he sees April, he can’t resist her – which is why he doesn’t give her the job – it is too dangerous for her to stick around. But when destiny takes matters in her own hands, and April end up being Yulia’s nanny, they have to find a way to leave their fierce erotic needs aside and focus on the little girl’s happiness.

The Recreators by Desiree Nordlund – ★★★★
I went into reading this book partially blind. The blurb doesn’t uncover much, and I was excited as to whether I would like it or not. The Recreators is a young-adult novel that happens in Medieval times and features characters who have God-like powers and are able to change a slight minimal portion of the world.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris – ★★★★★
A powerfully emotional book about the love, resilience and surviving through the worst possible circumstances. The Tattooist of Auschwitz is a true story of Lale, a Jew, who find himself trapped in a pool of uncertainty.
