Reading-wise, I really enjoyed April (non-reading wise, I enjoyed it very much too, but let’s keep on topic) and read:
- Holding by Graham Norton – review here
- Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch – review here
- The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel – review here
- Caraval by Stephanie Garber – review here
- Mad Girl by Bryony Gordon – review here
- What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami – review here
- We Have Always in the Castle by Shirley Jackson – review here
It was an eclectic little mix of Graham Norton’s dulcet tones reading his audiobook to me, two very different memoirs, a book that Bookstagram tricked me into thinking was worth a read (yes, I mean you Caraval) and three great novels.
However, this month, I made a woeful attempt at the TBR list I put up in my last monthly review, only actually reading one book that was in my original stack! It is not that I don’t want to read the others, it’s just that, for various reasons, I got drawn to the above list instead!
Due to this I have decided to not really give myself monthly TBR lists anymore, just set out a few books I know I’m starting with or have already started so, inspired by The Bailey’s Prize nominees, they are:
- The Power by Naomi Alderman
- The Dark Circle by Linda Grant
- The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O’Neill
Hope you all have a great reading month!
