Bookish Update: April 2013

bookish updates april 2013

Another very late post! Hopefully I can remember everything I read and bought in April…

Currently reading: Hamlet, Revenge! by Michael Innes and The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

Books read in April:

  1. Mary Stewart, The Crystal Cave
  2. Jill Shalvis, The Trouble with Paradise
  3. Diana Wynne Jones, Fire and Hemlock
  4. Robin LaFevers, Grave Mercy
  5. Anthony Berkeley, The Poisoned Chocolates Case
  6. Sharon Kay Penman, Time and Chance
  7. Jennifer Crusie, The Cinderella Deal
  8. Marie Brennan, A Natural History of Dragons
  9. Gemma Burgess, A Girl Like You
  10. Patricia Wynn, The Birth of Blue Satan
  11. Huntley Fitzpatrick, My Life Next Door

Favorite book of the month: I had lots of good reads this month, but I have to single out The Birth of Blue Satan. It’s a mystery, a period piece, and a slow-burning romance all in one! Can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

Least favorite book of the month: The Crystal Cave was so slow-moving that it really didn’t do much for me. I’m hoping the sequels will be better!

Books acquired in April:

  1. Emma Newman, Between Two Thorns
  2. Ben Macintyre, Operation Mincemeat: How a Dead Man and a Bizarre Plan Fooled the Nazis and Assured an Allied Victory
  3. Jennifer Crusie, The Cinderella Deal
  4. Ernest Cline, Ready Player One
  5. Julie James, Love Irresistibly
  6. Gemma Burgess, A Girl Like You
  7. A.A. Milne, The Red House Mystery
  8. Polly Shulman, The Grimm Legacy
  9. Flora Thompson, Lark Rise to Candleford
  10. J.L. Carr, A Month in the Country
  11. Dorothy L. Sayers, Lord Peter: The Complete Lord Peter Wimsey Stories
  12. Shusaku Endo, Silence
  13. Christopher Morley, The Haunted Bookshop
  14. In Tearing Haste: Letters Between Deborah Devonshire and Patrick Leigh Fermor
  15. John Curran, Agatha Christie: Murder in the Making: More Stories and Secrets from Her Notebooks
  16. Susannah Fullerton, Jane Austen and Crime
  17. J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
  18. The Two Towers
  19. The Return of the King
  20. Juliet Marillier, Blade of Fortriu
  21. The Well of Shades

Yes, 21 new books in a month is probably too many. I  blame the library book sale! There was also a “buy 2, get 1 free” deal at Barnes & Noble that I couldn’t resist. So April was an aberration…probably. 🙂
