Reading Recap April 2024

 Here's what I read in April!

The Dark Forest by Cixin Liu: The craziness that began in Three Body Problem continues in this book two. We have the Wallfacers who are trying to figure out a solution to the alien forces that will arrive in 400 years time. They all come up with great solution, but none of them work. Except one. Maybe. With this book I am officially invested in this crazy intense hard core science fiction story and I now need to see what happens with the next one, which I understand is a parallel story to this one. WAH! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Carrie Soto is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid: This was the book club choice for April. I struggled through, mostly because it was really about nothing except this tennis players desire to regain her title. I felt no investment in it at all. I did enjoy her relationship with her dad, which made those bits somewhat interesting. And it was overall an easy read. I don't know... I don't get the hype! ⭐⭐⭐

Have I Told You This Already? by Lauren Graham: We got this book at a Lauren Graham book signing earlier in April. An essay memoir book full of her funny stories of the business and life in general. She is awesome. And it was a blast to see her. You can check the channel for clips from the experience. I'll post channel links below. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Do-Over by Lynn Painter: I read this for Dewey's Readathon which was on April 13. So much fun! This is a great romcom where our girl gets in a bit of a Groundhog Day loop, only it's Valentines Day... and she is determined to make it the best day ever, but things just keep getting worse and worse! And then she just decides to forget it and let it all loose. LOL! I loved it. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

An Improbable Season by Rosalyn Eves: This one is a YA regency romcom... where we have two sisters and their cousins coming to London to make their debut and join the "season" for the first time and find their husbands. They expect it to be all fun and games, but of course, everything goes wrong! Another fun enjoyable book! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Tree.Table.Book. by Lois Lowry: At the end of the month we got to go to a Lois Lowry signing and we bought this book there. It's an adorable middle grade story about the friendship between Sophie who is 11 and Sophie who is 88. The younger Sophie is very worried about the older Sophie because she thinks her family is about to take her away to put her in a old folks home. She is determined to make her remember stuff, but she ends up learning a ton more about Old Sophie than she expected. Heartwarming in all the ways. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

It as a lovely reading month! In May I plan to make most of my books be for the Asian Readathon in celebration for AAPI Month. 

Here are some channel links from the past month if you want to go check them out!
