Is anyone else as ready for summer as I am? Aprils sporadic weather had me feeling, well…blah. At least I had some good books to get me through.
Read All Day: April
1. Watching You by Lisa Jewel
Because that’s the thing with getting what you want: all that yearning and dreaming and fantasizing leaves a great big hole that can only be filled with more yearning and dreaming and fantasizing.
2. The Magician by Michael Scott
If you tell people everything you take away their opportunity to learn.
3. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Perhaps if I make myself write I shall find out what is wrong with me.
4. Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
We women make choices for others, not for ourselves, and when we are mothers, we . . . bear what we must for our children.
5. When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
Human knowledge is never contained in one person. It grows from the relationships we create between each other and the world, and still it is never complete.
6. Hey Ladies!: The Story of 8 Best Friends, 1 Year, and Way, Way Too Many Emails by Michelle Markowitz, Caroline Moss and Illustrated by Carolyn Bahar
Mason jars. Chalk menus. Social media tie-ins. I’m probably speaking another language to you, right!?
7. The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion
Dishonesty was part of the price of being a social animal, and of marriage in particular.
8. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Mirrors have an uncanny way of telling the truth.
9. The Indigo Girl by Natasha Boyd
It seemed a ridiculously careless accident that made me a female rather than a male. The rest of the time I wondered why it should make a difference at all. But it did.
10. Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley
What he feared the most was that all this hiding had made it impossible for him to ever be found again.
Now, Go. See. Do.
