April 2019 Reading Recap

April cherry blossoms

Well, I met all my goals that I made last month for this month, except not much happened toward the big reading challenge!

The four books I read are:

A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard: A mute girl (selective) and a deaf boy meet each other and hit it off.

The Girl With Seven Names by Hyeonseo Lee: memoir of Hyeonseo as she grows up in North Korea, ends up leaving and how she got her family out.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty: we learn the story of three different moms who's paths cross as they send their kids to kindergarten, and we learn that all is not as it seems

Dreamology by Lucy Keating: Our girl and our boy dream the same dreams of each other, and then they meet in real life.

Favorite: The Girl with Seven Names for sure. But Big Little Lies was very fun reading too.

Book Challenge Progress: None. I thought about counting the North Korean book toward history of a foreign country, but decided I wanted to read something else for that one.

Goals for May:

  • mark SOMETHING off for the challenge! (Pretty sure I'm not going to complete this challenge but it's still fun to try.)
  • re-read Eliza for book club
  • read something from the nightstand/floor book stack

I felt like I was reading a lot, but still only four books! AH!! How'd you all do?


  1. I'm trying to reread Eliza myself, but reading is going slow even though I like the story just as much now as I did the first time.

  2. I haven't read Big Little Lies but watched the show and love it! Books are usually better though. You did great at meeting your goals. Happy May!

  3. I was going to re-read Eliza, but I can't find it anywhere!!

  4. THE GIRL WITH SEVEN NAMES is absolutely fascinating. I also really liked BIG LITTLE LIES. It was just fun :)
