A busy and seemingly short month, April was so full of good reads that I had a hard time picking a favorite.  So I had a tie between two favorites.  Click my titles to read my reviews.

  1. I’d say you got your reading mojo back – and I regularly don’t finish books if I don’t like them… Life too short to trudge through reads that just make me miserable, I feel. Congratulations on a busy productive month. I haven’t read either of your favourite reads, but just as soon as I get some order into my unruly TBR pile *sigh* I have a list of books I want to check out – and I’ve added these two. Have a great week! My Weekly Wrap-Up – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/05/01/weekly-wrap-up-1st-may/

    • Thanks, Sarah, I have regularly failed to hit my mark each month since last summer, but this month was a good one. I’m pleased about that, and I’ve also enjoyed the ones I read. It’s only appropriate to toss the ones we don’t enjoy, right?

      • Oh, yes! I don’t know why so many folks persist in trudging through books they don’t like… Reading slumps come and go, I think, for all sorts of varied and good reasons, but it’s nice to see the end of one. Have a great week:)

  2. You had a great reading month!!! I listened to The Obsession and really enjoyed it! I find Nora Roberts stand-alones are great on audio and this one was just fantastic!!! I have The Nest on the TBR – just trying to decide if I’m going to read it or listen to it. I love Sarah Addison Allen’s books – they are such quick, light reads and I have North of Here in my pile to listen to. I hope you have a great May!!!
