I love book recommendations, so please do leave a comment below with a recommendation that you loved… couldn’t put down… couldn’t stop thinking about. I have 121 books in my To Be Read (TBR) queue at present and definitely need more.
I always have at least one physical book (I prefer hardcover now that I’m not moving around the country), one (or 10) kindle e-book and several audio books going consecutively. Call me crazy, I’m OK with that.
So let’s dive into my April reads.
Hook Line and Sinker | The Maid | Anxious People
The Christie Affair | Never Fall for Your Fiancee
The Forty Rules of Love | Tools of Engagement | Bittersweet
Anxious People by Fredrik Backman is an outstanding read and this was my second time enjoying this book. It did not disappoint on the second round. Prior to the pandemic, I read Backman’s A Man Called Ove and Britt-Marie Was Here and I recommend all three. I think Backman (and his translator) is a gifted author and storyteller who evokes an array of emotional responses as you read. His characters are uniquely human and touching. Go get his books.
Are you an introvert? Or an extrovert with introverted tendencies? Do you sometimes feel like the world won’t stop talking? I read Susan Cain’s Quiet in 2013 and I still think about what I read and learned to this day nearly a decade later. I saw Bittersweet as an option in this month’s Book of the Month and snatched it up.
Tessa Bailey is new to me. I discovered her through a bookstagram account and loved the easy, fun read. I was delighted to learn I was reading the second in a series. Once finished, I logged onto my OverDrive app (synced to my incredibly valuable library card) and requested several of her other titles.
