Top Books for April

This was in audiobook format and a reread, but honestly the one I totally enjoyed the best. It does make a good case for rereading when you have forgotten a good deal of it but you know you loved it!

Another audiobook. Set in southern England in 1940, in a small village. Amazing, superb narration and brilliant story.

Looking Forward to reading in May...

A new one from Emilie Richards that is published in June

And a new one in Brockmann's Troubleshooters series. So looking forward to it.

So how did your reading month pan out?


  1. Great month! Thanks for sharing what you enjoyed, and for hosting our wrap-up links. Have a fabulous May!

    I see some books I am tempted to add to my stacks, like The Chilbury Ladies' Choir. I hope you enjoy Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans.

  2. Looks like you had a great month! Enjoy May!

  3. You did awesome! Sorry to see you had a DNF. Happy May!

  4. I enjoy reading Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooters series. Happy reading!

  5. What a great month in reading. Some good books there. I want to read Wendy Wax and Emilie Richards some day. I think I would like their books.

  6. Fabulous month! I love all your details.

  7. It's always fun to see your stats for the month, Kathryn.

  8. Happy May!!! You had a great April - and I see we read some of the same books :) I have the Kate Morton book sitting on my shelf - I've read a few of her other books and have really enjoyed them. The Forgotten Garden is one of my favorite books!

  9. so glad you discovered Kate Morton, I devoured all her books. My favorite is still The Forgotten Garden

  10. The Chilbury Ladies Choir sounds good. I'm always in for a superb narration! Good job on reading your bookshelves!

  11. Another great month with a nice mix of books.

  12. Wow! 15 books! You sure had a good reading month! I've only read up to 6 books for April, but it was much more than in March!

  13. I'm always amazed by how many books you read! Wow, 15 in one month. I only read 4 books in April, but they were all excellent. And I have been doing VERY poorly on my TBR challenge because I've been reading for Booktopia & my 2 book groups. Back to my own shelves soon!
