April Reads

April was a great month for reading. Winter lingered for most of the month so I spent a lot of my time indoors, with a book in hand. By the time the month ended, I’d finished 14 books; 7 Fiction and 7 Non-Fiction, which is how I like my split my reading time – entertainment while I learn.


  1. My Name Is Lucy Barton /Elizabeth Strout
  2. The Book Thief /Markus Zusak
  3. The Time Traveler’s Wife  /Audrey Niffenegger
  4. Eve Out Of Her Ruins /Ananda Devi
  5. Everything Is Illuminated  /Jonathan Safran Foer
  6. The Luminaries /Elizabeth Catton
  7. Tell Me How This Ends Well  /David Samuel Levinson

Non Fiction

  1. The Go-Giver  Bob Burg / John David Mann
  2. The Four Agreements /Don Miguel Ruiz
  3. Linchpin /Seth Godin
  4. Man’s Search For Meaning /Viktor Frankl
  5. I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings /Maya Angelou
  6. How To Lie With Statistics /Darrell Huff
  7. Is You Okay?  /Glozell Green

I made a video to highlight a few things from each book – why I chose it and a sentence or two about what I got from the reading experience. You can watch the video here:

      It is. Big accomplishment. If I only read novellas for the rest of the year, that would be okay with me.


  2. I have read the Book Thief, it was pretty good. I have to say I was slightly disappointed that it wasn’t a real story but that’s just the history part of me, LOL It was a good book to read once, not probably one I’ll read again.
    I’ve been unable to pleasure read for a while. I had to read the famous Slaughterhouse Five for one of my classes this past semester, it was odd… But fast reading so that was good. I literally just picked up my first book from the library since January, it’s been on hold to get since then and as luck would have it I get my turn on the exact day I am done with finals, LOL meant to be. So I’m reading Kings Cage by Victoria Aveyard, it’s the third installment and I hope as good as I hope it could be, we shall see!
    Happy reading!!
