April Book List

Wednesday, 1 April 2015

So I managed to read all 4 books! After I finished Sula, I had about a three day break of not reading anything because I kept forgetting to pick up Incendiary. Thankfully I really enjoyed it and was able to read it in three/four days. Out of all the books I read this month Incendiary was definitely my favorite. Before I Fall and Where the Truth Lies were both YA books and although it was nice to dive into it for a while, it all became a bit samey in the end. Sula was a good read, but also a book much about nothing. Incendiary was just a whirlwind of a book and I really enjoyed it. I have to say after really liking Chris Cleave's book The Other Hand/Little Bee, I didn't expect to like this just because typically you like a book from an author and then you read another one by them, and it just doesn't live up to your expectations.



This month I've gone back to to being sucked in by the Kindle Daily Deals! I haven't read a book on my Kindle app for a while, although I have read bits and bobs from The Secret on it because I've been having a tough month. Anyway I picked up a couple of books during March in order for my March reads, even though I still have LOADS (40+) books in my 'to-read' list.

I did actually pick up two physical books, but I'm only going to add one to this months reading list. As usual expect this whole post to go down the lines of 'I don't know why I picked this up, I'm just a sucker for deals'.

How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran - I've heard so much about this book, that finally I decided to buy it. I'm really intrigued to see how I'll find it, I don't know if I'll find it ranty or annoying because I've never read a book in the genre before and just generally I find some people who mouth off about feminism etc a bit annoying and privileged but we will see.

The State We're In by Adele Parks - If I'm honest I have no idea why I picked this one up. Even after reading the blurb I'm still sat here like ummmmmm. I think it's because I had an urge to spend money and was aware that I had not bought a book for my Kindle in a while. This has mixed reviews so, I'm hoping that I like it! 

The Photographer's Wife by Nick Alexander -I just loved the sound of this when I was reading the blurb. I love a book that has a bit of a mystery surrounding it and this is just right up my street!

Last Man in Tower by Aravind Adiga - I read The White Tiger by Adiga last year I think, and I really really enjoyed it. I found myself laughing at loud at some bits and story was actually really interesting. I like the turn the story took as well, if anything I also found that funny and was really intrigued to see where it would go. I don't seem to read many books that focus on Indian culture or the country, so for me it was such a lovely insight to Indian fiction. When I say this book on the Kindle Daily Deals, I instantly snapped it up because I liked his other book a lot. The story does seem like it could be interesting and if The White Tiger is anything to go by, I'm sure it'll be full of funny bits.

What books are you reading this month?

  1. I am currently reading Never Eat Alone, a book about successful networking.
    I really enjoy using apps like Kindle and Audible. Though they are not as romantic as real books, they are very convenient!

  2. Oh that sounds like a good book, I will put on my to-read list as I definitely need something like that. I haven't listened to an audio book in years, it really reminds me of being a kid! xxx

  3. I was skeptical with the audio book at first. But, it's not as dramatic and awkward as children's books. It's more like listening to a movie.
