I still can’t believe that we are in May already.
April was a good month, to my standard. I wasn’t expected to read this much. After a slow start of the year, I begin the month with Rebecca and finish it with a high and went on to the next high of Oranges are not the Only Fruit and found a favourite author in Jeanette Winterson (provided the rest of her books do not disappoint). Two books were finished within one day, The Penelopiad and Kitchen. It’s also a double Yoshimoto month, as I finished two of her books, favourite being Goodbye Tsugumi.
- Rebecca, Daphne Du Maurier
- Oranges are not the only fruits, Jeanette Winterson
- The Penelopiad, Margaret Atwood
- Kitchen, by Banana Yoshimoto
- La Prisonniere by Malika Oufkir
- The Double Comfort Safari Club by Alexander McCall Smith
- Goodbye Tsugumi by Banana Yoshimoto
- The Armies by Evelio Rosero
- A Thousand Good Years of Prayers, YiYun Li
Half of the April month’s read are for reading challenges, half of them not. La Prisonniere scored a 5 for a life changing read. Not too bad for April, considering that I went on a Spring holiday, spent a lot more times outdoor walking and not reading, working exta hard at work closing year end reporting, and have a household to run.
I have checked out 18 books from the library to date (OMG!), May resolution is to focus on reading challenges and at least close out a one or two of them, that means reading some of my own books too.
For now, I need to get some sleep. 😉
