2024 Popsugar Reading Challenge - Update #4

    

Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to my fourth 2024 Popsugar Reading Challenge update with mini reviews!   In April, I completed 6 books for a total of 28 so far this year out of 50 books.  I'm really making great progress.  Keep reading to see my thoughts on the books I read in April:

 ❋ ❋ 
Tales of the Celestial Kingdom (The Celestial Kingdom #2.5) by Sue Lynn Tan is a great collection of short stories set in the world of a favorite series.  Honestly, it's just nice to be back with these characters.  I had almost forgotten just how much I missed it all.  Plus, Kelly Chong's illustrations fit it perfectly.

My review is also on Goodreads.


 ❋ ❋ ❋ 
Slewfoot: A Tale of Bewitchery by Brom is a new-to-me favorite!  I was putting off this historical fantasy horror novel for way too long.  I'm glad I decided to listen to the audiobook because the production was great and Barrie Kreinik has a perfect voice for it.  I had no idea just how much I needed this.  I absolutely need to read everything Brom has ever written now.

 ❋ ❋ 
Paladin's Grace (The Saint of Steel #1) by T. Kingfisher is a fantasy series opener I'd somehow missed a few years ago.  Everything I've had the chance to read from T. Kingfisher has been pretty fantastic and this is no different.  It's a bit different from other things I've read from her, but I really appreciated how fun and cute it could be.  I wasn't expecting it to be quite so cozy.  I can't wait to read the rest of this series in the future.

 ❋ ❋ 
Persuasion by Jane Austen is a book I'd been putting off for way too long.  I've only read a few of Jane Austen books and it's been awhile since I have.  It took me a minute to get back into the style, but that said I really enjoyed the story.  Captain Frederick is one of my favorite of her characters now I'd say.  My complaints mainly go back to the audiobook - it was a bit tough to follow the audiobook production and who was speaking when. Otherwise, this would have been a four star story for me.

 ❋ ❋ ❋ 
Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone (Ernest Cunningham #1) by Benjamin Stevenson is a new favorite mystery and I can't recommend it enough on audiobook.  Barton Welch makes an excellent narrator.  I don't want to give anything away, but just it was everything I was looking for.  I can't wait to listen to book two soon.

My review is also on Goodreads.


 ❋ ❋ 
Here Lies Daniel Tate by Cristin Terrill is a great YA mystery thriller.  I think I personally preferred her brand of science fiction but this was still intriguing.  It's a stand alone novel as well, and honestly one of my favorite aspects of the entire thing is exactly how everything wrapped up.

My review is also on Goodreads.
