Month in Review

What a month! I hope you’ve all been doing well and reading some great books. I’ve had a good reading month but towards the end of April my reading started to fall off a bit as I’ve been so busy with work and life.

My husband went to Germany to visit his dad and had a great visit with him. I wish I could have gone but I can’t leave my mom alone. At least my husband did bring me a few treats/presents from Germany so that was fun!

Ok, so let’s get to the books. I read four books this month and they were quite enjoyable. First off, I read When No One is Watching by Alyssa Cole. I remember hearing a lot about this book last year and I do think it was a good thriller but unfortunately the ending was a bit too out there for me.

I also read Piñata by Leopoldo Gout and The Green Road by Anne Enright. Very different reads and while I preferred Piñata, I think if you enjoy stories of family dynamics then The Green Road is a good choice.

Finally, I wanted to finish two books for National Poetry Month but only got to finish Goldenrod by Maggie Smith. What a wonderful collection. Of course, my goal is to continue reading poetry throughout the year but it’s been a good month to focus on poetry.

As far as May is concerned I don’t really have any reading plans and I kind of like that! I just want to read at whim and let’s see what I discover. How about you, how was your reading month and any reading plans for May?
