Chasing Nikki by Lacey Weatherford -
I got this ebook on a whim, I think because it was either free or super cheap, and wasn't expecting much from it when I finally decided to give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised actually. It wasn't anything great but I did enjoy it. It's about a boy with a troubled past who is moved to a small town to live on his grandparents ranch and decides to pursue a girl at his new school. It's nothing new or really special but it is a lot darker than you would expect and it takes some pretty shocking turns.

Flawed by Cecelia Ahern -
This is the first book in Cecelia Ahern's YA duology, and her first YA book. I reread this in preparation for the sequel and loved it just as much the second time around. I love the premise of this book and the dystopian society in which it is set. I go into more detail in my review but there are so many relevant messages throughout this book that we need to think about as a society. I just love this book a lot.

Perfect by Cecelia Ahern -
This is the second book in the duology, the sequel to Flawed. I didn't love this book as much as the first, which was a little disappointing, but I did really enjoy it. I loved how the story continued and eventually wrapped up and there were still the same messages running through that I think are so important. I just had a bit of an issue with one aspect, which I talk about in my review.

I did pretty well with my book buying in April, which I was quite proud of. Despite reaching the next 5 book goal and being able to buy books, I managed to restrain myself and haven't bought anything yet! I did receive my pre-order of Perfect and also received one book for review.
The Beat On Ruby's Street by Jenna Zark - This is a middle grade historical fiction novel and it sounds like a fun read. I have been wanting to read more historical fiction since reading The Book Thief and I feel like this, as it's aimed at middle grade readers, won't be too much for me.
Here's hoping I have a better reading month in May and get back on track with my Around The Year challenge, which I am way behind on. What was the best thing you read in April?
