April was another great reading month for me, but for a not-so-great reason.
I read thirteen books in April, but just like the number of books I read in March, I honestly wish I hadn’t read that much.
As you are looking at the list of books that I read in April, be sure to remember that you should not compare your reading life to mine. All our lives look different, including our reading lives.
I will say that in the craziness of the last two months, and really the last year for me, I am glad that I love to read. When I couldn’t do much else, at least I could read. And it wasn’t a chore. I enjoyed it.
I couldn’t do what I wanted, but at least I could spend time doing something that I truly enjoy. Crossing quite a few books off my ever growing to be read list was an added bonus.

New Girl In Little Cove by Damhait Monghan. I enjoyed this one but didn’t love the ending.
The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray. I think I am in the minority on this one. Or at least it feels that way.
The Luck of the Titanic by Stacey Lee. I don’t read a lot of YA books, but I enjoy Stacey Lee’s books.
Coronation Year by Jennifer Robson. This is a great book for summer.
Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers. This was a fun mystery read and it is another one that is a great summer read.
The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck. I like this one, but didn’t love it.
Rotten To The Core by T E Kinsley. This is the eighth book in the Lady Hardcastle series, which is one of my favorite mystery series.
Next Year In Havana by Chanel Cleeton. I loved this book! It will probably make my list of top ten fiction books for the year.
I only read five nonfiction books in April. I probably would have read more nonfiction, but one of the books was over 600 pages and it slowed my reading down.
Fly Girl by Anne Hood. I really enjoyed this one.
One Hundred Saturdays by Michael Frank. This was totally different than any other WWII books that I have read.
Path Lit By Lightning by David Maraniss. This is a long book, but I think it is an important book to read because it is about more than just Jim Thorpe.
The God of the Garden by Andrew Peterson. This was the right book at the right time for me.
Find Your People by Jennie Allen. I really enjoyed this one. It isn’t deep theology, but it is full of practical advice on developing friendships.
