Dear Diary: What I read in April 2016

So I was planning on doing mini book reviews on my YouTube channel as part of VEDA (Vlog Every Day April) but lol that totally didn’t happen. I did however review Kindred Spirits over there before I gave up so you should totally go and watch that here.

Kindred Spirits was actually the only book that I actually read in April as the other two were audiobooks from Audible and both part of the same series. First I listened to Spell or High Water while on holiday in Tenerife which was actually hilarious because I kept dozing off thanks to then sun/heat and losing track of where I was then having to find where I was again. I actually think I enjoyed this book over the first for the simple reason that the characters had all been fleshed out and I was more invested in their relationships – the change of location to Atlantis was a breath of fresh air and the humour from the first book was very much still present. Time travel is a really hard thing to write about convincingly but Meyer gets around this beautifully just by having everyone in the book be just as confused about how it works too!

The third book however, An Unwelcome Quest, was my least favourite of the series and I found the plot to be predictable and repetitive which was a shame. I didn’t feel like it really fit with the tone of the other books and it was certainly the least funny of the lot. Luke Daniels as narrator was what kept me entertained enough to finish it and I’m glad that the series is to be more than just a trilogy as this would have been a really disheartening ending!
