April wrap-up, favourites and other

thebookwormofnotredame (9)

Dear reader,

Okay, I know. I suck at blogging. It’s not even that I suck, it’s just that everything went bad in those first few weeks of May and I couldn’t even put myself to sit down to post something. But! that’s something you’ll know more of in my May wrap-up. (I promise this one won’t be that late.) Anyway, here is what I have written for April but never posted:

April seems to have last forever and I am really glad to see it over now. It was neither a good or bad month, but I have hope for the future and I’m sure that everything will fall into place soon. Many things happened during this month: I went to the movies, my dad ran a marathon, I hosted a 24h readathon, I went to the French premiere of Love, Simon, I saw Infinity War three times (and cried every time), I worked on my thesis and finally have faith for it and I studied harder than ever. I also read a lot, listened to a lot of music, got drunk with my best friend like the old time, watched some tv shows and way too many Tom’s interviews. It really lasted forever, and I am ready for May to take its place.


I was almost sure that I read nothing in April, but it seems that I did since in the end I added 18 books to my “read” shelf on Goodreads. Most of them were amazing, and I’m so glad I got to discover so many incredible reads.

Here is what I read:

  • If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout, 5/5 stars
  • Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi, 5/5 stars
  • American Panda by Gloria Chao, 3.75/5 stars
  • Lost: A Collection of Poetry and Prose, 4/5 stars
  • When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, 4.75/5 stars
  • To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han, 2/5 stars
  • Son of the Dawn by Cassandra Clare, 3/5 stars
  • 180 Seconds by Jessica Park, 4.5/5 stars
  • Wracross by Marie Lu, 4/5 stars
  • Reason to Breathe by Rebecca Donnovan, 2/5 stars
  • Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, 5/5 stars (re-read)
  • Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, 5/5 stars
  • Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli, 4.5/5 stars
  • We Are Young by Cat Clarke, 5/5 stars (ARC)
  • The Queen of Spades and Other Stories by Alexander Pushkin 3/5 stars
  • Two books for work,
  • And a book for my thesis.


  • Tom Holland

I can hear you all screaming, “STOP IT ALREADY”. Honestly, I just can’t. I finally found something (well, someone) which makes me feel good and I won’t let it go like that. During April, I watched many new interviews of him thanks to the Infinity War press tour and it felt so good to see him again on screen. I missed him so much.

  • Jane the Virgin

Yes, again. I swear, I have a life. But I started watching this show with my sister and we are obsessed. We are now done with it but we are re-watching it and have a playlist of our favourite songs from it, and also one for our favourite scenes… Oops?

  • Infinity War

To all my friends who saw it and were worried about me: I am fine. I just sobbed on my best friend for a while, and cried every time again. It’s a really good movie though. I mean, of course I loved it. I don’t even know what to say because I don’t want to spoil anyone and I don’t even want to talk about it… I may be weird.

  • Love, Simon premiere

If you know me, then you know how mad I was when I learned that Love, Simon would only be in French theaters in June. I still am. Luckily, I had the chance to go to the French premiere, which was free. I shared it with some friends and it was an amazing experience. The whole movie is beautiful and funny and moving. I loved it so much.

Well, here it is. 22 days later, but it’s here. I can’t wait for summer to come, so I won’t let the university stress kill me all the time.

I hope that April was as beautiful as you are.

Love always,
