Favourite Read of the Month: April 2019

It was not surprising to me that I was able to read 10 books during the month of April as the Easter weekend gave me two extra days in which to stay in and immerse myself in stories. As well as a poetry collection, I read some contemporary romance, an historical novel, one young adult story, and a number of thrillers. Of the ten books I picked up, I was disappointed with only one.

The titles I read in April are listed below. To read my reviews (if you haven’t already), click on the title in the following list:

  1. Joy Fielding All The Wrong Places – Thriller 4 stars
  2. Sonya Lalli The Matchmaker’s List – Contemporary Romance, Women’s Fiction 4 stars
  3. Falguni Kothari The Object of Your Affections
    Contemporary Romance, Women’s Fiction – 3 stars
  4. Michael Thomas Ford Love and Other Curses – Young Adult Contemporary – 4 stars
  5. Amy Stuart Still Mine – Thriller – 3 stars
  6. Stacey Halls The Familiars – Historical Fiction – 3 stars
  7. Minnie Darke Star-Crossed – Contemporary Romance, Women’s Fiction – 4 stars
  8. Jude Devereux A Willing Murder – Cozy Mystery – 5 stars
  9. Karen Cleveland Keep You Close – Thriller – 4 stars
  10. Julie McIsaac We Like Feelings. We Are Serious. – Poetry – 2 stars

I read so many wonderful stories in April but there are two that really stick out in my mind: Jude Devereux’s cozy mystery and Minnie Darke’s debut novel. As much as I loved Star-Crossed, the first in the Medlar series gave me much joy. A Willing Murder, therefore, is my favourite Read of the Month.

I hope you read as many wonderful stories as I did in April. What was your favourite read? Share your choice, or the link to your post, below.

  1. I love how
    You are sharing more about the books
    You read and am I right that you are developing your book revised side more? And well you are really good at reviewing books – not that I am the pro to know – but I do know Bieber hard it is to review books – especially if they were not a fav – but you have the objectivity and the write words to still respect the book (cos others might love it more and u allow for that) and you find the right words for describing –
    A niche area for you I’d say….


    1. You have hit it on the mark Yvette. I was always reading before but never shared my thoughts that often but I have realised that there are people out there who are interested in reading what I think.
      I do still enjoy writing though – and need to still do a little of that.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Yes – I like your writing (have sampled your fiction on and off) and I guess we just have to pick and area and run with it – eh ?
        Also / that is how I feel about my blog in general – a few readers really want a few extra thoughts on some topics – and so when I make a post and would maybe not say anything – I will Add the few thoughts because it seems to matter to a handful – and that is enough for moi (such an honor isn’t it?
