My big book accomplishment for the month was starting this blog. My first post was on April 14, and my first review was posted April 17.
Every year I say I’m going to keep track of the books I read. This is the first year I can remember where I’ve stuck to it past March, so hooray for me! 🙂 My book count for the month of April is nine. Four were audiobooks, five were on paper. I’ve read 33 books so far this year, and 13 of those were audiobooks.
This months reads:
- D.A. by Connie Willis
- All We Ever Wanted Was Everything by Janelle Brown (audio) (book club M)
- Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us by Seth Godin (audio)
- Pardonable Lies by Jacqueline Winspear
- Malice Domestic 3 (audio)
- Dead Ex by Harly Jane Kozak (audio)
- The Writing on My Forehead by Nafisa Haji
- Little Brother by Cory Doctorow (book club L)
- The Language of Bees by Laurie R. King (review coming soon)
(Early reviews are on Goodreads, later are on this blog).
This was a good month of reading, with a nice variety of books. My favorites were the last two, Little Brother and The Language of Bees.
I’m currently reading Cures for Heartbreak by Margo Rabb, which I need to finish for book club M’s discussion on Monday evening. I’ve been dragging out Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell for some time now, but I think I’ll try to finish it this month. Maybe.
I’m currently listening to Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs, and while it isn’t bad, I’m not overly excited by it. NetLibrary and my computer are not getting along well, which is limiting my options for this months listening. (Note to self: must take time from reading, blogging, and reading blogs to troubleshoot).
Sometime during May, I will be reading Stones from the River by Ursula Hegi for book club L. Since book club M will meet on June 1, I’ll be reading something for it during May, but I’m not sure which book yet. Other than that, I have a tall to-be-read pile, and I’m sure plenty will be added to it this month. I don’t have specific plans.
What did everyone else read? Anything particularly good?
