April Wrap Up

Yet another month down, and summer is just around the corner. I’m looking forward to warming days and no students around. This should be the first summer that I really get to relax and rejuvenate…and I am so ready. April is my birth month, and I was hoping to get a lot of good reading down. Although I feel like I had a book in my hand most days, I think I read some pretty serious novels over the course of the month which ultimately did not leave me with a high book total. I should be reading 12 books a month, but if I can get through 10 – I’m a happy camper. And as always, my favorite books of the month are highlighted in red.

  1. White Hunger by Aki Ollikainen
  2. Just One Day by Gayle Forman
  3. Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach
  4. The Four Books by Yan Lianke
  5. Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King
  6. Just One Year by Gayle Forman
  7. The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
  8. Just One Night by Gayle Forman*
  9. The Vegetarian by Han Kang
  10. The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson
  11. The Heart (or Mend the Living) by Maylis de Kerangal


I’m not sure what May has in store for me. I’ve built up quite a TBR pile at my house, which makes my earlier rant about the affordability of buying books seem laughable. After I finish these next two library books, I’m going to start on these pile I’ve accumulated through friends and family.

Until Next Time World…

*You are not a book; you’re basically a short story.



  1. Looks like you had a really good reading month in April! I didn’t get to read much in April but I hope that changes for May. At the current reading rate, it doesn’t look like it ಠ_ಠ

      It’s hard. I had an awesome January and February, then I sort of bottomed out. I like to say I’ve been reading more challenging books, but it’s hard to find time!
