April Books

My books list is a little bit unimpressive this month.  I only managed to finish three books.  Thankfully, I’m still ahead of the pace needed to read 52 books this year.

I seem to be in a bit of a memoir streak.  I’m currently reading a memoir and I finished two this month.

Hasn’t everyone read Bossypants by Tina Fey?  Yes.  Probably.  If you haven’t read it you probably should because my reading friends seem to all like it regardless of their taste in books and *I* liked it too.  She managed to intertwine the funny and the serious along with some fun Hollywood gossip.

The second memoir I read in April was Matt Logelin’s Two Kisses for Maddy. It was exactly the book I had expected and hoped for.  Sad.  Heartbreakingly sad, but peppered with Logelin’s customary colorful language and humor.    My only complaint is that it was too short.  I would have loved several hundred more pages.

Lastly, I read The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis.  Admittedly, at 500+ pages, it probably should count as two books.  The verdict, for me, is out on this book.  I just don’t know what to think of it, overall.  I liked parts of it a LOT and disliked parts of it A LOT.  It had a lot of elements that I LOVE, but it just never made it there for me.    It might be right up your ally, though.

What have you read in April, or recently, that you couldn’t put down?  I’m always looking for new book recommendations.
