April 2016 Reading Wrap Up

April was a good reading month, I managed to read some really good books despite being super busy. I might have even found some new favorites!

The Curse of the Wendigo by Rick Yancey

The second book in the Monstrumologist series. This wasn’t anywhere near as good as the first book. In fact, I was really disappointed. I guess Yancey was trying to develop the characters more, but to me it just seemed like the characters were whining and sulking around too much. There’s still some cool moments, though. 3/5

Macbeth by William Shakespeare

A re-read for me. Still my favorite Shakespeare play! So much awesome craziness. 5/5

The Sound and The Fury by William Faulkner

Liked some things about it, hated others. I did a review: https://mixedupsaydee.wordpress.com/2016/04/16/the-sound-and-the-fury-by-william-faulkner-book-review/   3/5

Dealing With Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede

A fun read overall.Although I think the “princess who hates being a princess and rejects everything associated with princess-ness” thing is getting a little old! 4/5

Possession by A.S Byatt

A very masterfully crafted and complex book. I might do a full review later. The only flaw is the poetry (written by the author for her fictional poets) kind of sucked. 4.5/5

A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams

I can see why everyone loves this play. It’s a very good read, one of the few plays you can read without needing it to be acted out. 5/5
