It would be the understatement of the year to say, March has felt like the longest month ever. I’m anxious about April but I know you all are. I want to get back to more consistent blogging if anything to give me (and hopefully all of you who visit) a break from the news. So let’s do this ok.
I read five books this month and I’m actually surprised by that because I thought for sure I hadn’t made a lot of progress. Granted, I’ve fallen a couple of books behind on my Goodreads challenge but that’s ok. Oh and I’ll get to the challenges part in a bit too. First, let’s talk about what I read:
The Address by Fiona Davis, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman, Ms. Ice Sandwich by Meiko Kawakami, Despues del Invierno by Guadalupe Nettel and Good Talk by Mira Jacob.
My favorite was Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. What a wonderful book and even though I was a bit hesitant from all the wonderful reviews I’d heard of it, it did not disappoint.
Two of these were books that satisfied reading challenges. Ms Ice Sandwich counts for the Japanese Reading Challenge and the Reading Women Challenge and Despues del Invierno counts towards the Reading Women Challenge. Those two also count towards my personal goals of reading in translation and reading in Spanish.
I’m entering April with a couple of books that I hope to finish this week and then I probably will focus on some comfort reads. Maybe some romance or cozy mysteries or series by authors I enjoy. We’ll see what I find. What about you, what are your reading plans for April?
