A Look Back at April

It's hard to believe it's May 2nd already. Time just continues to fly!

Here's a look back at April on the blog:

I reviewed The Orphan Choir by Sophie Hannah. This horror story was okay, but failed to reach its potential in my opinion. Even so, my concluding thoughts were that it was, "it was a quick and entertaining read, and I liked Hannah's style and will try some of her mysteries in the future!"

I also reviewed Still Mine by Amy Stuart. This was a more quiet thriller with a growing sense of dread. And not just dread that something awful was going to happen, but also just dread because the circumstances were awful. My concluding thoughts, "I enjoyed this book quite a lot despite the fact that it had a certain "unreal" quality to it."

And I reviewed Henry and the Chalk Dragon by Jennifer Trafton. This was a completely charming book that I highly recommend! The book itself (as a physical object) is a gift and the story inside will entertain the intended age group, but also, I think hearten adult readers. My concluding thoughts, "More than anything, it's the kind of book that makes you feel generally better about things when you finish."

I provided a rundown of some recent book to TV news that I thought was interesting and pertains to my interests. Since that post, The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice has also been optioned.

I joined the Readathon, but alas, probably only ended up reading for about three hours or so. Even so, what an event! Hopefully one day I'll be able to do a proper readathon again!

I hope you all had a wonderful month of April with many things to look forward to in May!
