April Wrap Up and May TBR

How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
5/5 Stars
Caitlin Moran always makes me laugh. Her articles and tweets have always made me laugh, and this book did the same whilst also discussing feminism and modern 'womanhood'.

Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell 
4/5 Stars
This is actually the first Rainbow Rowell I've read and was really sweet. Loved how it was about Star Wars 7 too!

Into the Woods by Kim Harrison
4/5 Stars
Lots of short stories, mostly from the Hollows universe.

Dollar Signs by Manning Wolfe
3/5 Stars
I was sent this book to review, and you can read this review here on this blog.
Ms Marvel by G Willow Wilson
4/5 Stars
My first proper comic book! I really enjoyed it, I just wish it had been longer. I can't afford to buy such short stories when they're so pricey!

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I enjoyed this first book by Victoria Aveyard - a strong fantasy world with interesting characters.
4/5 Stars

The Crysalids by John Wyndham
A reread, but still 5/5 Stars
This book ALWAYS intrigues me. An interesting look at how our world could end up...
