April Reading Wrap-Up

 

𝗔𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗹 𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗪𝗿𝗮𝗽-𝗨𝗽

How is it May already? We spent most of the month at our place on the Outer Banks, NC. It was a sunny but cool spring there. We were lucky to miss a late spring snowstorm that dumped a foot of heavy wet snow and ice at our primary place in PA. The electricity was out there for three days because of the storm. Glad I missed that! 

Reading-wise it was a good month. Lots of enjoyable reads. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- loved and would recommend 

The Killing Hills - an Army CID agent helps his sister, a sheriff, investigate the murder of a woman in their rural hometown. Gritty southern noir packed with great characters and atmosphere. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- really enjoyed and would recommend 

I’ll Be You - a washed up former child actress must figure out why her twin sister is missing. Thank you @netgalley for the digital ARC. 

Never Saw Me Coming- diagnosed psychopathic students together on a college campus. What could go wrong? 

Peach Blossom Spring- a sweeping multi generational saga of a mother’s persistence and dedication to her son. 

🎧 Faye, Faraway - a woman discovers a way to time travel back to her childhood to see her mother. This was my book club’s read for the month. 

Saint X - the death of a college freshman while on a Caribbean vacation has unknown ramifications for her family and the men accused of her murder. More literary than thriller but I still liked it. 

🎧 The Violin Conspiracy- compelling story of a Black man  who overcomes racism and his own family to become one of the world’s top classical musicians. His priceless violin is stolen before the most important competition of his career. 

🎧 The Diamond Eye - historical fiction account of the life Mila Pavlichenko who became the one of Soviet Union’s most deadly snipers during WWII. 

The Lioness - a Serengeti safari goes terribly wrong for a Hollywood star and her entourage. Thank you @netgalley for the digital ARC. 

QOTD: what book are you starting May off with? 

I’m going to start the month with Two Nights in Lisbon courtesy of @netgalley. I’ve read a few of Chris Pavone’s previous books and liked them.
