I can’t believe how quickly April flew by! After March feeling like the longest month of my life, I wasn’t really looking forward to another month in quarantine but I seem to have gotten into a good routine, and work has been busy which made the month fly by.
That said, I had an average month of reading. I made it through four and a half books and can’t wait to share them with you. Before we dive in though, I want to share how you can order books to support local bookstores that are struggling during this time.
- Call your local bookstore and see if they are offering pickup or local delivery.
- Use Bookshop.org, they have already raised over $1 million for local bookstores. I have created a shop page here with all of my favorite books! I am going to continue to add to this list as the year goes on.
- Show some love on social media. Shoutout your favorite book store on Instagram stories and tag them.
Now onto my list of what I read in April
Anna K: A modern-day Gossip Girl. This book is a great read. I didn’t have to think too hard to follow this story, which is much appreciated on days when I literally can’t focus. The ending really got me and I pretty much complained to everyone I knew about it.
Open Book (audiobook): I have been recommending this audiobook to everyone I talk to. This is Jessica Simpson’s tell-all memoir and she really does tell all. I loved going for long walks and listening to Jessica Simpson spill all the dirt.
The Whisper Man: I am still unsure if I recommend this book. This murder mystery is very dark and wasn’t quite what I wanted to be reading but also … I couldn’t put it down. I needed to know how this book ended.
Widow Clicquot: If you drink champagne, then you have heard of Veuve Clicquot, but you may not know the story of the woman behind the famous champagne. This book takes you back in time and you learn about how champagne came to be and the woman who built the empire. This would be a great book club pick and pair it with an evening of enjoying your favorite champagne.
Beach Read: This is the romance novel we all need in quarantine. This light-hearted love story will take up all your time (I literally read it in one sitting). The story is about two authors working on getting out of their writing rut and how they fall in love.
Up next on my list is:
