I read quite a lot in April compared to previous months. There was a period of over a week where I read an entire book, cover to cover, each day. That was after hearing some news that made me think and feel that I need to be doing more with my time than just sit messing around on my ipad. I’m not sure reading so much is the right response but it started accidentally and then I wanted to keep it up until I’d done a week.
Two or three of the books I read this month were re-reads (I’m not sure about one of them). Three of them had been sat on my self unread for several years, the rest for months.
One book (The Midnight Library by Matt Haig) was a good read that I enjoyed but I felt it really didn’t live up to the level of hype I’d heard about it. The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Attwood was another book that I liked (and my mum is reading it now and also liking it) but having read several of her other books, I definitely came away feeling like I’d enjoyed of the others more).
I loved Old Man’s War by John Scalzi more than I was expecting and having discovered there are sequels, am very keen to read them.
