Everything I Read in April

Everything I Read in April 2022

Archer’s Voice: this book was recommended by a Colleen Hoover fan and it did not disappoint. This is a fast-paced, tragic love story that had me sobbing one moment and happy laughing the next. It was a true roller coaster. I don’t want to share much about this book. Just know that if you like Colleen Hoover’s books, you will enjoy this one. 

The Roughest Draft: I moved this to the top of my list after reading some reviews. This book was such a joy to read and it had me smiling, laughing, and crying throughout. The book is about two co-authors who stop writing together after a wildly successful book and their journey back to writing together. There is of course a love story, but this book also gave a good peek into the world of writing a book. If you liked People We Meet on Vacation you won’t be able to put this one down. 

Funny You Should Ask: another romance novel that I couldn’t put down. This story starts with an eager young journalist interviewing an A-list actor and the interview that would make both of their careers. But 10 years later they reconnect and the rest is history. If you like second chance reunions, then you will love this book. 

The Phantom Prince: this is the memoir of Elizabeth Kendall, one of Ted Bundy’s girlfriends and it is a haunting story. I listened to the audiobook and was engrossed and appalled during the entire book. Kendall also added a section to this book years after the fact that is really moving and eye-opening. If you like true crime stories, definitely pick up this book. 

True Biz: this was the Literary League pick of the month and I absolutely loved it. This book follows the students and staff of River Valley School for the Deaf and their desire to live normal lives. With concerns about hooking up, passing your school classes, and most importantly to stop having people tell them what they can and cannot do with their bodies. This story is eye-opening and unforgettable.

I'm Bailey, your new social media bestie.

Instead of doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing, I got intentional. I started asking “what if” all the time and I stopped putting so much pressure on myself to do things at the perfect time or the right way. Instead I took a little leap here and another there to create a life I love.
