Hello my fellow bookworms, I hope you are all well and that you had a lovely Easter. I spent my two weeks off work catching up on my sleep; watching new and favourite films; writing an assignment; hosting a large Easter Sunday feast and visiting my mum, on the south coast. Weirdly though I didn’t do as much reading as I thought I would:
Fiction: 2 Non-Fiction: 4
At the start of the month, I finished the highly readable Indiana Belle by John A. Heldt, a nostalgic mystery with nice touches of time travel and romance. It was just what my tired brain needed.
Unusually for me, I found myself more in the mood for non-fiction instead of fiction. First reading spiritual classic Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster for my church’s book club. Unfortunately our group wasn’t able to meet, but it still a good read. I also finished reading Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals cookbook by Jamie Oliver and I devoured Seven Stages by Geoffrey Trease, a fascinating look into the lives of historical figures from the stage. The latter of which I am still to post my full thoughts on.
Then, with only a day to go, I finished reading one more fiction: The People the Fairies Forget by Cheryl Mahoney and one more non-fiction: Angels by Lee Faber. Both of which I am still to post my full thoughts on. That means altogether I have three reviews to catch up with in May.
Pick of the Month: Seven Stages
So altogether I’ve read six books, which is a good amount for me. I have also continued to intermittently listen to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (usually while I do my ironing). But sadly I have made little to no progress with My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier – when I am in the right mood I know I am going to love this.
Looking forward to May, I have several family and friend’s birthdays to celebrate including my little brother’s, so I am hoping to enjoy another trip down to the south coast. And of course, I am also hoping to indulge in more reading!
What did you do and read in April? What are your plans for May?
