Looking back on my April 2020 book haul

From February until May 2020 I tracked my book hauls on my blog (after that it became too awkward to mention me buying 3583993 books each month). From February until May 2021 I will look back on my book hauls from last year and reflect on whether I read the books I bought or not. April was a month with a very big book haul, as my birthday is in April!

The Cactus – Sarah Haywood


As excited as I was to read this book, it’s still waiting on my ereader for me to come pick it up.

Less – Andrew Sean Greer


Same goes for this one as for the previous ones, sadly.

In Five Years – Rebecca Serle


Although Manon read this book last year and I told her we would buddy read it, I didn’t read along with her so this book is still on my TBR pile 😦

Yes No Maybe So – Becky Albertalli


The amount of books I haven’t read from my book hauls of last year is starting to become a little awkward haha.

Whisper Network – Chandler Baker


This story sounds SO good! Still, I haven’t picked it up yet.

A Thousand Pieces of You – Claudia Gray


This ended up being one of my favorite books of 2020. I never expected to like it as much as I did, but I’m glad I bought this book!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A Thousand Skies Above You – Claudia Gray


After reading A Thousand Pieces of You, I couldn’t wait to read the sequel A Thousand Skies Above You. Now I still need to read the third book in this series!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Hold Still – Nina Lacour


I ended up thinking that I wouldn’t pick this book up in the near future, so I thought it would get a better home if I unhauled it!

Wat de zee vertelt – Julia Drake (~ The Last True Poets of the Sea)


This one is unread still, but I really want to dive into this one soon!

Layoverland – Gabby Noone


As the premise of this story sounded a bit like the concept of the tv show The Good Place, I was really excited for this one. I ended up reading this one as soon as it got delivered!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The Night is Darkening Round Me – Emily Brönte


I ended up not enjoying this one as much as I thought I would. I loved some of the poems in this little book, but the overall verdict was that it wasn’t really for me.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Letters to a Young Poet – Rainer Maria Rilke


Same as the previous book I mentioned. I really wanted to enjoy this epistolary book, but I just didn’t, sadly.

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Dear Edward – Ann Napolitano


I was soooo excited for this book and ended up finishing it in December 2020, just on time to be part of my 2020 reading life!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Little Fires Everywhere – Celeste Ng


While one of my best friends watched the tv show, I read the book Little Fires Everywhere. We bumped into some differences between the tv show and the book and it was so funny to discuss it.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Tweet Cute – Emma Lord


I thought this story was so so cute! On the day I write this blog post (in January), I have yet to receive my copy of Lord’s second book You Have a Match. I’m really excited for it!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Invisible Women – Caroline Criado Perez


As excited as I was to read this book, I still haven’t come around to do it. I hope in 2021 I will be able to educate myself some more by reading this book.

21 lessen voor de 21ste eeuw – Yuval Noah Harrari (~ 21 lessons for the 21st century)


Although I have never read a book by Harrari yet, his work intrigues me and I was so excited to receive this book for my birthday, however I haven’t come around to reading it yet, which I really should soon!

I have read 47% of the books I bought in April 2020, which is closely to half of the books I bought, but not quite yet. I hope to read the other 50% of these books in 2021!
