Hi all! I’m a bit late getting this post together this month. I keep saying the year is flying by and its still true! I was a bit of a book group slacker this month. But I am super excited to share some of the books I read in April–it was a great reading month for me!
April’s books (and reviews) were as follows:
- I really enjoyed On the Banks of Plum Creek for the #LittleHouseRAL
- I read and posted about Peter Pan and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for the Classics Club (and with my husband).
- I also made some progress on War and Peace–finished book 7!
- I read The Hesitant Heiress, Fablehaven: Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary, and Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore just for fun.
- And I finally finished reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe out loud to my husband.
May is going to be a great month for reading. I am already slightly behind on my reviews because I’ve hit the ground running!
For Book Group:
I am super excited to host my neighborhood book group and read one my favorites that I haven’t read in years!
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows // One of my favorites. Super excited to discuss and write about it!
For #LittleHouse RAL:
By the Shores of Silver Lake by Laura Ingalls Wilder // Excited to continue reading about Laura’s story in this Newbery Honor book.
For The Classics Club:
War and Peace, Book 8 by Leo Tolstoy // Getting super close to that illusive half way mark!
Heidi by Johanna Spyri // I have listened to several chapters in Heidi and I love the sweet and simple style of writing and of life in the novel.
Just for Fun:
The Bound Heart by Dawn Crandall // This second book in the Everstone Chronicles is wonderful. I have read it and need to review it 🙂
The Crown by Kiera Cass // My nerdy obsession series. I love this series and I am about half way through this concluding novel. My sisters and I may have made a scene at the bookstore buying it Tuesday 🙂
Fablehaven: Keys of the Demon Prison by Brandon Mull // The final novel in the Fablehaven series is exciting and dramatic. Can’t wait to reread it and review it!
The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron // This one has been on my list for a while. It’s a lot different than my other “for fun” books this month so I hope it will bring a nice balance to my reading.
What are you reading in May?
