Books I read in April 2017
April ended up being a very literary month!
- •The Summer Girls seriesI saw Cheryl Strayed be interviewed by Tim Ferris at SXSW. She suggested Mary Alice Monroe as an author to check out, so I immediately downloaded this series. I enjoyed a lot.
- •Everything, EverythingThis was charting on the iBooks recommended. A quick read, I loved every minute.
- •Oliver KitteridgeI liked this a lot more than other Pulitzer winners. I wish the storyline was a lot more cohesive, but I still devoured this in a day or two.
- •My Name is Lucy BartonI read this overnight. I really loved and related to the country girl from Illinois starting a new life in the big city and dealing with repercussions from the past.
- •Commonwealth by Ann PatchettI read this long ass book in two days. I couldn't put it down. Really engaging storyline and characters. I'm surprised this wasn't a National Book Award finalist.
- •The Mysterious Affair at StylesI love a good Agatha Christie as a pallet cleanser. This wasn't my favorite of hers but a good quick read.
- •In a Dark Dark WoodI started yesterday and will probably finish tonight. It's a strange scenario, but absolutely compelling. Looking forward to see how it ends up! I'd suggest this for fans of The Girl on the Train.
